im not an accountant but im pretty sure under European law which over rides any rules put into place by various FA's that this may not stand up if challenged in court (very similar to the Bosman ruling of 1995)if the FA really wanted to do something useful they should have capped ticket prices .. but heaven forbid that would have meant showing concern for supporters..prawn cocktail anyone ?
@ 519 redshirt7Takes a big man to apologize so thanks for that - on the few occasions I post I find that it's usually in response to some ill-informed garabge about my own club and probably respond in kind. I can see why you would have the same problem!@ 521 nick12 "BTW! ..." Agreed, it does get in the way of any reasoned debate.
The ultimate aim of any measure like this should be to safe-guard the future of a club for it's supporters. City and Chelsea aren't over-stretching, they have been spending somebody else's money. What is needed is a fail-safe if the sugar daddy leaves, not necessarily a restriction on spend.Say, the club must have to funds already in place to honour the full length of player contract in advance?
At least 90% of you need to read and understand the rules before you start bleating!!! It hilarious reading some of this tripe :-D
The problem lies with players who think they should be getting paid more than they are. Reluctancy to play for less than 100k a week is the problem. If a player is world class then clubs need to pay big wages in order to keep them at the club. Otherwise you have giants of european football coming in for them. A limit on spending will result in loosing great players from the league.
464.That's you one response? RVP? Granted a great player, but nonetheless a crock at the time you got relatively cheap. That's your medium term future? Lol, things are worse than I thought.
Loan agreements are being looked at by HMRC as taxable pay, I understand. Many clubs are poorly run, I think Spurs and Arsenal are amongst the more prudent, any others?BTW! Can the Utd haters AND fanatics discuss their respective views on a forum entitled something like "why this endless tit for tat is boring and pathetic"? Every set of comments is dominated by these eejits.
All very well having a salary cap but does it prevent clubs sidestepping it by using "loan agreements", payments for "Proprietary rights", shirt sales etc, sponsorship agreements dependent upon playing for he club and all the other devious schemes that the "Tax Advisors" will come up with.
500.Feed the Goat ...................Fair comment. Believe me, I do know what it feels like to have my team slagged off at every opportunity. In fairness I find there are only a few sensible contributors on here, the rest driven by hate and jealousy. In your case I was being unfair and I apologise. I'd rather talk football but certain comments on here just have to be answered.
Its Uniteds title to lose now......... I don't think United will slip up this season.... 9 points with the easier games left.
Hopefully, all the new regulations are workable and will cause so much frustration for the Sugar Daddies that they end up leaving.It will be a great day for football when they finally crawl back under the rocks they came from.
510 Sams Town"anything to do with the Edwards family?'" Now, now - you'll be getting yourself a reputation!!!@ 514 Sams TownI just feel that the strikers are too good to continue missing chances but we are completely reliant upon them dropping points - and they just don't look like doing so at the moment.@ everyone! G'night - great "speaking" to you all.
@ 513 King Eric The RedAye it's such small margins! Evra hitting the post at 4-2 last year - if that goes in then the Toffs ain't coming back and we don't get encouragement. This year Nasri's indiscretion in the wall could come back to haunt us! We've got to make sure that we get at least that second spot so I've got one eye on the London threats!
@511 King Eric the Red Well I will stick to football and you carry on insulting posters.Also cheer up a bit.. anyone would think you were 9 points behind. @512 Feed the Goat l love your optimism but City's strikers are not scoring enough to take advantage of any slip ups...you would have to say United have more of a look of Champions about them...we need a Yaya lift or its curtains.
#512 Feed the GoatOne thing I've never taken for granted is United having any sort of a lead unless it is outrageous and sometimes not even then! After last year SAF will ensure the focus is one game at a time. My gut tells me it may be the derby where your challenge all but ends.Exciting stuff as you say. Heck if we were any good at this we'd be doing it for a living
@ 508 King Eric the RedI honestly believe that if we're around 6 points behind come the derby then we'll win the league - just a feeling given the respective run ins! I think if you beat EFC then you may well be set fair as it'd be a major psychological boost given last year's events. I can't help but think that you may start drawing some games and we have to pounce if you do. Exciting stuff!
#510 Sam I've yet to see you come up with an original comment yet. Most of your posts that I have read are nothing more than WUM remarks intended to draw a response. It is extremely tiring and doesn't merit a worthwhile response. #508 Goat - do you still think city will be in the hunt when we meet in April. Lots of potential pitfalls before then. On paper if we see off efc we'll be in good shape
