With transfer fees and player salaries going through the roof, the amount of debt will only increase.

I keep waiting for football to eat itself, but it never seems to, for some reason

146 initial candidates were whittled down to zero, as all them either pulled out (many due to concerns of possible historical indiscretions) or weren't good enough. The final four including two women all pulled out.

Phil Neville was a left field appointment in the hope that he was at least squeaky clean, but inevitably the forgotten about historical throwaway tweet taken out of context raises it's ugly head again.

Go on sack him, no other sod wants the fecking job.

Glenn Murray and wife arrested on suspicion of tax fraud.

I guess it must be galling to watch all those millions going to the tax man. Sounds like his wife has expensive tastes.

I probably need to apologise to all those people who like biting or being bitten on the @rse

I guess that means spending 1 or 2 weeks in the local library with the microfiche, every census since 1911, and all the telephone directories

If only there was some other way of doing that more quickly and easily.

Financial Fair Play should be tough to a point where clubs making financial losses should only be made if either:

The club has money in the bank to cover losses
Club owners foot non-returnable losses (to a maximum limit)
Losses have occured due to upgrading club infrastructure - i.e. stadium and training ground development.

Newly promoted Football League side Forest Green Rovers made an annual loss of £2 Million last year, an obscene level considering central payments for League 2 are roughly £400k. All it does is drive up player wages and transfer fees, in turn the extra costs get passed onto fans through higher ticket, merchandise and sports subscriptions.
In Phil Parkinson we trust
"You won't get anywhere slouching about half out of bed"
"They took all our players away, banned our captain and we still came away with a ten-wicket victory"

In the first example, I believe the break even requirements are largely focused on a club liabilities to tax, players wages, transfers and other expenditure. In fact, I believe the first three in the Premier League all have to be paid immediately when requested, or a club fails FFP automatically. So, I dont think it is a case of simply saying a team automatically doesnt "break even" when it makes a loss. A club with cash assets to pay its losses is counted as break even, so long as those cash assets were raised by the function of the club, and not a cash investment from its owners. Thats how I understand the rules, AP. I might be wrong. Financial losses only count as such when a previous years surplus does not cover a previous loss.

In the second case, I think its 45 million quid is allowed from club owners every three years rolling. So in year 1, he puts in 45 million, he cant add anything after till year 4, when he can put in another 45 million. If, in year 4, he puts in 20 million, and in year 5 he puts in 45 million, then in year 7 he can add 20 mill again. And so on. No consecutive 3 years can there be more than a cash investment of 45 mill from an owner or sugar daddy to cover losses. Already a rule. Increasing it more distorts the market, hence it is limited.

Finally, losses on stadium developments, youth team and academy structures, charitable donations and I believe womens teams are not counted for FFP losses. So again, this is already a rule.

Neil Warnock is a twat.

Claims Delph's tackle last night was ten times worse than Bennett's on Sane.

You stick to your physical kick and rush style of football in the lower leagues and leave the art of football to the more talented coaches.

police not interested, apart from sending the bloke who he spat at on a driving awareness course for filming whilst driving. I bet they would have liked to be more severe with him, but perhaps (sensibly imo) decided it might just further feed the story.

show you how naive I am... I just assumed it was his 14yo who was doing the filming. It never occurred to me that he would be stupid enough to let his law breaking go viral. Perhaps he didn't think he was doing anything stupid/dangerous/ill advised?

perhaps he thought there might be a few quid in it?

Good soulful English lads never do it, of course....




No wait, they do all the time. But Gerrard, Rooney and Alli we just tend to ignore.

I don't think Alli's been ignored. He's received loads of social media stick for his diving.
