SpurAndy’s pffFFP bloeug

I’ve seen this reported this morning concerning the new FFP proposals, apparently called ‘Fair Play 2.0’. These are to be debated tomorrow I believe.

Essentially they bar clubs from exceeding a negative net spend limit of €100m per season, substantially impacting the transfer policy of the European Superclubs. In addition they also plan to limit the maximum squad size to 25 players which would majorly impact clubs like Chelski and Citeh from having huge volumes of youngsters on loan.

Difficult to see how UEFA can shoe horn this in without upsetting the super clubs big time and potentially bringing their breakaway from UEFA closer.

    For reasons you’ve already given.

    Which is a shame as they’re all perfectly reasonable proposals which a truly well-run club would have no trouble at all in accommodating.

    The ‘related party’ rule looks tasty as well whereby a club have to ensure that sponsorship deals are in line with market values. This would stop the ridiculous back door funding of the team like Citeh with their Etihad £400m sponsorship by the Abu Hanza government

      100% Andy

    • UnkleTaff 23/05/2018 at 1:35 pm

      Good to hear he’s taking his coaching badges. I’ll take a battler who loves the club over a more talented player who only turns up when he feels like it (I’m looking at you Riyadh Mahrez) every single time.

      I understand why he was sold when he was, but I was disappointed to see him leave nonetheless and I really hope he makes a success of it as a coach.

      We could do with a couple with his attitude in the squad right now if you ask me.

        Ryan Mason is great. I hope he is a huge success as a coach or manager

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦🕎⚽🎷🎥 23/05/2018 at 5:22 pm

    I like Ryan Mason love to see him as a success as a manager.

      Vert should be the Captain

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦🕎⚽🎷🎥 23/05/2018 at 6:39 pm

      Thats me Vert shoukd be the capt

      • SpurAndy 23/05/2018 at 6:49 pm

        I think Verts would be good Ron However not convinced about the need to change from Hugo. Having a player who is respected by all the team as a motivator and organiser on the pitch is more important. I don’t think that necessarily has to be the captain imo.

        • Anonymous 23/05/2018 at 8:20 pm

          Im not sure he is a motivator

          • ronwol196061🇨🇦🕎⚽🎷🎥 23/05/2018 at 8:22 pm

            Im not so sure Lloris is a motivator.
            How could he motivate the forwards?

            • McG ⚽⚽ 23/05/2018 at 8:25 pm

              He could tell them whoever doesn’t score has to wash the kits that night?

            • SpurAndy 23/05/2018 at 8:26 pm

              I don’t know if he is but a motivator can do it with words or by actions or both. You don’t get to be the captain of your country if you don’t have something about you.

              • ronwol196061🇨🇦🕎⚽🎷🎥 23/05/2018 at 8:51 pm

                Lloris is not typical french like Klinsmann is not tyoivally German so it works but Im not sure hus us the best motivator or not. I really cant see where hus is.
                Verts can I think better from his position.

  • McG ⚽⚽ 23/05/2018 at 6:29 pm

    So, this blows all the bollox of Wanyama & Poch having a row out of the water…


    Glad & her total bollox, I can type that without getting banned, you’ve no idea how many times I’ve wanted to say that aloud!! 🙂

    I think a blog on who we’d like to keep, who to sell & reasons why for each might bring up some nice debate…

    • Flat Oeuf 23/05/2018 at 6:38 pm

      Good idea. Pls write something and email it to me and I’ll put it up to kick the discussion off

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦🕎⚽🎷🎥 23/05/2018 at 6:41 pm

        Is that what they call a write off?

      • McG ⚽⚽ 23/05/2018 at 7:04 pm

        Ok, I’ll try & put something together…

    Does FoFp 1.0 know he’s being upgraded to 2.0, will it include longer legs?

      Teehee. I like it down here, and I wouldn’t know how to use them anyway.

  • McG ⚽⚽ 24/05/2018 at 7:00 am

    Anyone know how to get this to play?

  • UnkleTaff 24/05/2018 at 11:08 am

    I may be in a minority of one here, but it we can get £75m for Toby Alderweireld I’ll drive him to Old Trafford myself.


    • Flat Oeuf 24/05/2018 at 11:25 am

      I’d keep him if he sings at £100k pw or thereabouts

      • Flat Oeuf 24/05/2018 at 11:25 am
