It's the likes of Villa, Everton and Newcastle fans I feel sorry for. With these new rules the prospect of any investor spending the money necessary to bridge the gap to the "big clubs" in terms of creating revenue is now dead in the water. These rules won't stop City, it's too late for that but it will make it even more difficult than it was for clubs with aspirations of CL to get through that glass ceiling.

I hope you guys realise that you 400m deal is still being "looked into" and UEFA have said that that this kind of thing wont be tolerated

Another thing Mel, how would we not realise that the Etihad deal, (which btw the figures haven't been released for public consumption on), is still being "looked into" when the media bring it up everytime FFP is mentioned?

Etihad is no more suspicious than Liverpool's shirt deal. Under their own rules, it can't be considered related party. If they did deem it so, City would have them in court faster than you can say "Bent French Fat Cat".

I can see why Arsenal may be good with this considering their financially sound footing, but United...... absolute gutless hypocritical w a n k e r s.

With the new TV deal money the clubs will now get the extra, so the players and agents will be brought under control. This new set of rules is silly really, surely clubs can manage their own finances, but apparantly not so. Also looks dodgy with Reading on the fence to allow a majority vote.

********* to the erstwhile Big Four status quo desperados. We've done our root and branch ovrhaul and bought players systematically in their early to mid twenties. All champions. The legacy is in place.
