Or business for that matter when one group of teams can spend what seems to be unlimited money regardless of debt. The other teams even if the funds are in place cannot spend
Imagine if Coke said to PepsiCo we are going to limit your advertising spend to a fraction of ours.
There are many ways to prove that capital is secure and not on debt.
The idea that because some clubs have a larger sponsorship deal than another makes them more sustainable is ridiculous.
What if after spending £550m on a stadium Everton's owners are told they cannot spend to ensure EPL survival and that investment is put at risk. I just can't see that standing up in court
I'm sure that this is a restriction of trade or more likely the limiting of a players ability to earn wages by artificial means.
“PSV, his entourage, and Dumfries are trying to complete a transfer,” Elfrink clairified, “We know he has Everton tracking him but they have to wait because of the rules in England and Financial Fair Play. It is impossible for them to get a player now.”
It's not like we're the only team in this position. Even the Italian champions, despite selling their right back to PSG for £60 million are only interested in an initial loan for Dumfries.
Is this a fact, or speculation based upon our apparent tardiness in completing the big deals that we need?
It's going to be a long month isn't it.
Probably going to miss out on a few targets, while clubs interested in our players are going to wait till the end of the window in order to get the best possible deal.
really paying the price for our spendthrift previous 5 seasons
I wish we'd just take the risk of getting our targets signed up asap and worry about shifting out the players we want rid of after that. But prudence is probably the wisest course of action at the minute.
