The rules are completely out of line with the Premier League Gravy Train and combined with the Bosman Ruling/ Parachute Payments for demoted clubs negatively impacting teams from being promoted.

For Example selling players like Bannan, Reach etc... Hasn't been an option (and still isn't now) as previously we couldn't replace them (due to FFP embargo) and subsequently their values decreased (nearing contract ends/ free transfers) so now we need them to stay up and they will most likely leave for free in the summer - worsening our FFP position...

 

Also our owner has spent circa £60MM buying the ground to limit the impact of the rules rather invest more into the the playing team to try avoid/ limit the impact of FFP... This is the same approach taken by Derby and also why Steve Gibson is p1ssed off at Middlesbrough who is happy to bank role, but can't due to turnover and rules.

Plenty of teams (that haven’t had parachute payments) are able to adapt to the rules and still be competitive.

In DC’s time in charge, 16 clubs have gained promotion and, to my knowledge in that time, only Bournemouth have faced any penalties for breaching FFP,  that was under the older more limited losses regulations.

 

Only 5 of those 16 clubs were promoted back whilst receiving PP’s as well.

Don't hate the player; hate the game...or something or another.

 

I think the rules are pretty daft given the financial disparity between the PL and EFL, but that in no way excuses the utter shambolic mismanagement at S6.

 

For one, Chansiri was fully aware of FFP from the start, constantly making reference to it in fan forums and so on.

 

Secondly, not paying your players wages has nothing to do with any constraints placed on the club because of FFP. That's entirely on the owner. When stuff like that happens, it makes you think they may have a point with the whole FFP thing.

I agree the FFP/P&S rules (whatever they are called nowadays) are not fit for purpose, but whatever the rules we'd just pisss away whatever we were allowed to spend anyway.

We would be in the same situation minus the points deduction even if there was no FFP regulations.  The chairman put all his money on red and it came up black.  Arrogance and incompetence is a very dangerous combination.

No it's because there is no revenue coming into the clubs because of covid not allowing fans into the ground...the idea that DC is deliberately not paying the players because he can is stupid and disingenuous

Do you honestly believe that people paying on the gate pays the wage bill?
