- Cheers Outlaws, I get it now
I think the new language around "profit and sustainability" makes this clearer actually. The older rules about "financial fair play" I think were the source of my confusion and are how it seems to be spoken about generally - that this is about "fairness" and not allowing clubs to "spend too much".
A lot of these rules seem to have stemmed from Arsene Wenger essentially moaning that Chelsea had a bigger transfer budget than Arsenal,and I think that framing does seem to dominate.
But thanks to the Outlaws brain trust I can see now that this is more about avoiding situations where clubs have a load of players on big contracts etc without the fundamental infrastructure to sustain that if the sugar daddy disappears overnight.
