Can somebody explain the financial fair play rules to me? Because I thought you can only spend what you generate so we sell Amavi for 10 million now apparently we have no funds at all and can only rely on loans.

Am I missing something here? Also how long does this FFP last? are we going to be broke next season as well if we don't go up?

There are other things than just the transfer fee.
Wages, agents etc.
Although a player is on loan, still a fee is involved.
Then running costs, bad debt, from previous regimes.

Stop looking at the neighbours, this will catch them out as well. the first year after a takeover is a free reign. its the second year itch.

I would still take our squad above any other in this league. A cold winter, with many games will pull the men away from the boys. Remember, it’s a marathon not a sprint.

I do completely agree with you Flackie I just wondered how long will this carry on does it reset itself after a bit or are we stuck now like this for the foreseeable until we raise money from somewhere? Off to Derby tomorrow I will be honest I will take a draw now they are a good side at home and yet again we have injurys. UTV.

It is what it is, and we have what we have.
The grass is never greener!

Hi WOW, I think Wolves are looking at FTP and thinking if they are promoted the Premier League will do nothing and the ELF might just fine them.
This is basically what happened to QPR when old Harry got them promoted, unfortunately for them they slipped back and were fined £40m which nearly bankrupted them.
I suppose it might be worth a try for the Villa if we could buy a good finisher and a good midfielder and then get promotion.
Let's face it if all you have to worry about is a fine when you are in the Premiership its small beer.

I was about to write pretty much what Pluffy put, so if we were to loan for example a big hitter like Sturridge, on about £100K a week, costing us roughly £3M in wages, and we got promoted, we'd just cop a fine? If we went up, on top of the TV money, Dr Tony would have Chinese sponsors/ investors wanting to throw money at us, a fine is a small price to pay don't ya think? Come the end of the season we'll be £50K+ better off when Gabby goes too, and any others out of contract, I'd take the gamble?
