We really do get value for money from our "superstars" don't we?

Don't know what makes me feel the most sick. Out overpaid failures or United's value for money.

I hope during this enforced sabbatical footballing can have re think about it finances.

Those figures are a recipe for disaster. 

Basically every club needs a multi millionaire sugar daddy now just to survive.

I hope the corona virus crisis pushes the reset button on football in its current state.

Why is just football which is been picked on?  Some of the very rich billionaires are claiming as well for their companies.

 

We should evaluate the whole of societies view on wealth not just a small portion of it.

 

Within a few months of the virus ending it will be back to dog eat dog and our good intentions will be just a memory.

When the parachute payments of some of these clubs stop they are going to be in serious trouble.

Fully agree.

 

Lewis Hamilton earns 750k a week and destroys the planet doing it.


Where is the pressure on him in all of this, have I missed something?

I dont think it is just football being 'picked on'.
I have seen a lot of negative things on social media about Richard Branson, Mike Ashley and Tim Martin.
Football probably gets more stick but that's because it is so high profile.

Do you think it will have a benefit long term?

To football?

Probably not, will re start with plenty of good intentions but a couple of months later be back to normal.

Might make players wages come down a bit in the short term however.

Will that money just go to the club owners?  

 

Do agree though nothing will change

Never understand how these businessmen who all must be somewhat competent to have they money they do, can run what is at the end of the day a business so poorly. 

 

Absurd, and it's not the exception... It's the majority

Football is not run for profit its run for prestige. That's why.

It's the players wages which are at least bringing clubs into dispute with FFP, and at most destroying them, 

 

there has to be a mechanism which confronts this head on, FFP does not do this.

 

There should be a cap on what wages can be paid in the entirety of a football club, and that includes bonuses.

 

This would also put every club on a level playing field which for the likes of the big six would be a non starter, 

 

this would need to be addressed,

 

money allowance could be worked out on the previous season's league position,

 

1-6    get a certain amount

6-10   a lesser amount of above

10-20  a lesser amount of above

 

This would make clubs more sustainable and give them scope to spend money on fans, infrastructure, and local issues.

Clubs would become more of a community benefit, and once again the working mans sport.
