2 out of the 3 teams

Recommended Posts

We've spent more than £40m than we had earned in the three years

 

It's not like we've been rubbing tuppence together.

Promoted back to the Premiership with the help of parachute payments. Love the level playing field in this league 👏  Teams like us, want to spend and can't spend. Bloody Joke

 

And since parachute payments began, it's averaged out at 2 teams out of the 3 promoted teams every season were getting the payments.

Feel sorry for a well ran club like brentford...

They had no chance against a team with a £50m start.

 

Reckon they will be 'cheating' soon..we could give em some tips..

IT's a matter of finding something that enables the teams getting promoted to try and compete without penalising the EFL clubs. In theory parachute payments are meant to encourage teams going up to improve their squads but not be terrified that a subsequent relegation will cripple them financially.  But how do you do that without disrupting the Championship?

True, but relegated teams get handed that for 3 seasons in a row which helps with concerns over P&S during that period. 

 

Newcastle had a wage bill of £112M the season they got promoted, puts things into perspective a bit.

The system is bent as a butchers hook.

Revising the figure of £39m losses over three seasons for Championship clubs would be a good place to start

The 2 teams in question also did what any sensible club does, albeit reluctantly, 

So, they didn't really act sensibly, they had no choice?

There is a difference between being reluctant to sell a player, and having no choice but to sell them. As sad as it is to see a good player go, sometimes it makes much more sense to cash in, rather than keeping them longer term.

They wanted a move, sort of opposite to us where ours wouldn't budge.

Genuine question. Are there any other sports that reward teams for failure in the same way that the parachute payments reward relegated clubs? It needs scrapping and the sooner the better. Instead, when a club is relegated there should be some kind of salary cap that kicks in so the club don't have to pay premier league wages. Make the salary cap league wide. I know the salary cap has been mentioned before for the championship. I just can't get my head around the parachute payment structure. Another reason to hate modern football.

So pleased Brentford have lost in the play offs Just because it is the stick that many of our fans have chosen to beat Chansiri with.

 

I maintain all along that if you are amongst the dozen that have a decent squad supplemented by a couple of very good players, then you have a shot at the big prize. One thing is for sure Brentford fans will manage their disappointment a fair bit better than we handled ours. If You are lucky enough to approach the winning post you can smell it; Then a little green man appears on your shoulder and says "Here are the dice if you want to progress, then roll me a Snake eyes".

 

Me, I don't particularly care what other clubs are doing. We had to cope with two waves of anti-skill-managers; Bruce knew he needed to keep and reintegrate the gang of three and the improvement was immediate; But when he went the plan and Wednesday went down the pan. Let us hope it is a temporary state of affairs.

 

UTO & DTB WAWAW !

Parachute payments were designed to enable a gradual restructuring of the off field activities not for investment in the playing squad
