Is FFP on its way out, fingers crossed on this one. 👍.

Agree2 Disagree0

Why do you think that would be a good thing Dave?

24 Mar 2021 18:11:03
This is a good thing for anyone with rich owners but a bad thing for football if true. I don’t like the idea of a filthy rich owner losing millions daily to be at the top of the league knowing if he falls out of love you could be up the river without a paddle.

24 Mar 2021 19:08:19
Alf, because it is primarily designed to help the richer clubs.
As we know, the rich rule the poor, and unfortunately football is going the same way.
I think we have forgotten where and why football started, it needs some surgery, this might just be a start.

24 Mar 2021 19:17:58
Good for those who have already broken the rules!

24 Mar 2021 19:23:32
FFP in principle is a good idea but the current system is faulty. It needs revamping but not necessarily removing.

24 Mar 2021 20:35:36
CW, enlighten me/ us as to who that might be?

24 Mar 2021 21:24:38
Viledave its a team who posted 120 million of losses over a three year period in the EFL yet got away with not breaking the 39 million rule. Dodgy or what?

24 Mar 2021 21:46:33
CanadaWhite, I thought you were going to bring Villa into this thread at some point, I was trying to open a thread that might generate some interest, is it beyond you to do that?
Ok so we are here again, and you are making statements you know absolutely nothing about.
Show me the proof that Villa, have been penalised for breaking FFP rules, if you can I will hold my hand up.
I think there have been 29 clubs, who have been punished for breaking the rules, A C Milan being the last, so contrary to what you might think Villa are not in that list.
You clearly know nothing about finances.
Just a footnote: I am assuming then, that you would never engage in illicit practices to increase the size of your bank balance.

24 Mar 2021 22:46:20
Yes Canada indeed
Far, far worse than very dodgy.

25 Mar 2021 02:00:43
Financial fair play has not and will never exist in modern football sadly.
Barca making millions in losses every month but bailed out by the local council with tax payer money, City with a 'world record stadium sponsorship' that just happens to be from the owners friends company and just happens to cover all their losses?
Only real financial fair play would be to set a transfer spend cap, a player value cap and a wage budget cap. Hands up anyone who thinks that will ever happen. anyone? . in the back maybe? . no? Me neither.

25 Mar 2021 03:00:30
Venereal Your explanation is bipolar or reverse logic. Your explanation is the very reason why such rules are a good idea. Admittedly the rules aren't terribly clear or well managed but that's a different debate. The eradication of such rules only helps rich owners buy the league with no consequence. The league is already abundant with excessive amounts of money. This development if true would make it worse and seems to be a reaction to the failed breakaway. The league should never be about "you're only tops because you're money" otherwise you'll rarely repeat the Leicester story. Any fan whom desires money utterly to rule the game is a bit off in my opinion.

25 Mar 2021 05:57:44
Spot on reply Georgie! 👍

As for Vile Dave and his reverse logic 😉 he also posted about FFP on the Vile Banter site and it further suggests VD doesn't really want FFP at all, thus making it even easier for the richest clubs to continue buying the league. Good one VD! 🙄

Ironically Vile Dave's post on the Vile Banter Site generated ZERO 🤣 responses ( of' interest ') yet on the same hand VD has the gall to berate Canada for actually replying generating interest at least for us Leeds Banter punters if not for him and his very, very dodgy narrative of wanting FFP abolished!

25 Mar 2021 06:25:15
I agree that's the way I would like the game to go Gummie but I can't see the playing field ever being level. The problem is that even if such a cap were imposed richer clubs would find a way around it such as supplementing wages with property or something else. Like we see with the Barcelona and Citeh examples teams will still look to cheat their way around the rules and the authorities aren't that bothered about/ able to do anything about it.

25 Mar 2021 08:53:30
You say 'show me proof that vile got penalised for breaking FFP'
That's Canada whites point, THEY DIDNT.

25 Mar 2021 08:53:48
VD you really are a walking contradiction. Not so long ago you’re on here hiding behind defending Berm and his right to post (in the main) differing views.

You acknowledged people’s right to challenge Berm back but quite rightly, NOT allow personal comments.

Then you post your FFP post and Canada simply and quite read only highlighted the FACTS that Vile had been investigated by PL upon their promotion, you can still find many stories covering the inflated value of Vile Park prior to sale. Just as Derby did, Wednesday etc etc . all wriggling out of any sanctions knowingly tweaking the FFP to their clubs advantage whilst the majority adhere to the rules.

So VD yes, you are completely correct on your assertion that your club does not appear on any list. You know you dodged a bullet i’m not being found guilty but your answer to such manipulative actions, is to have no rules at all!

Certainly an interesting position certainly not a surprising one.

However, my actual reason for posting was your response to Canada highlighting Vile WERE investigated rather than just gritting your teeth and playing the “not guilty card” or what about Derby Wednesday etc etc. you make personal derisory comments in relation to Canada’s own financial acumen.

A walking contradiction!

25 Mar 2021 09:44:07
We all know viledave only started the thread to cause trouble, as we all know they broke by rules by a massive margin but never got punished (not the only ones! ) .
Odd as we don't even break rules and get punished, maybe we should pay bribes, take incriminating photos or blow whoever they have done to get away with it.
As a previous posted said weeks ago we should simply not respond to his posts, that's what I will be doing as I'm sick of his made up BS.

25 Mar 2021 10:36:46
Only “fair” way to do ffp is if every club works to the same budget, not percentage based on revenue etc etc. If every club has the same set transfer budget and same wage budget then it’s down to recruitment which would be a level playing field and then on skill set of the squad and coaches. Oh but then VAR would rear it’s badly used head to uneven the playing field again.
It will never happen just like villas double standards on fair play!

25 Mar 2021 10:53:28
Maybe a uefa salary cap is the way forward like in the nfl.

25 Mar 2021 12:59:58
Yes Canada, maybe you ( and a few others such as Brighty) are right

maybe it's best to just ignore Vile Dave and his posts

just like the rest of the Vile Banter boys do with Vile Dave's posts 🤣🎣.

25 Mar 2021 17:32:31
Who's been saying beetlejuice again!

25 Mar 2021 17:35:54
Villa Dave don’t rise to it mate,

25 Mar 2021 18:45:58
Thank you mate, I don`t think they realise they have been reeled in.
Stay safe Whitey. 👍.

25 Mar 2021 20:47:05
On no!, We just been reeled in! Feel such a fool, going for a lay down now.

25 Mar 2021 21:15:02
Hook line and sinker so easy 😂😂😂😂😂.

25 Mar 2021 21:17:39
Say what you like mate, you have been reeled in.
Occupied 12 posters, who all jumped in, thought a bit more of you Mezzer.
Enjoy your lie down.

25 Mar 2021 23:27:42
villadave, If you enjoy a good reel in, fancy doing that on a night out in Beeston some time? Baz will pay for all your drinks. I'm sure you'll have a cracking time literally. 😂. Here's an applauding emoji for you 👏.

25 Mar 2021 23:41:52
Try "occupying" 12 Villa posters. Just find 'em first.

25 Mar 2021 23:42:09
Villa dave, I don't get you. You may well be a genuine nice guy and I have in the past thanked you for your kind words or thoughts. But if you just want to pop up every now and then to "go fishing", what is your point. To get a reaction or as a p*** take?, Personally I find it tiresome .

26 Mar 2021 08:14:50
VD confirming what we already knew of him.

It’s an absence of intelligence rather than any well planned wind up. Whiteman I genuinely cannot fathom your support of such an individual on this site.

IF this was a wind up, then why (Baz confirms) did he post it on his own Vile supporters banter site? So doesn’t really wash does it. Just more of the feeble excuses we have seen within his previous 43 retirements from this site.

Differing views from rival supporters are always welcome as rival perspectives are very interesting, however just our luck we attract an individual with so few alternatives in his free time, that his only ambition is to cement his notoriety both on here and on his own Vile site.

Before you’re ego takes hold VD this post was about you not to you

26 Mar 2021 08:57:14
Good posts Georgie and Mezzer.
Superb post Class.

26 Mar 2021 12:19:50
Mezzer, if you read the posts, you guys did the same to me last week.
You all had a laugh, saying how easy I bite, so I thought I would do the same.
And what do you know, it worked far better than I anticipated. 👍
If its tiresome don`t respond, go take a nap and rest up.

26 Mar 2021 12:31:38
Thank you Class, never thought I would have people writing about me.
Trust me, it was a wind up, you can say and think what you like, you fell in.

26 Mar 2021 14:28:29
Village person, you're saying it's a wind up now only as a cover. Either way, posting on a different board as a WUM exposes your true colours.

26 Mar 2021 14:53:56
Georgie, We have friends in Farnley, and have had a drink in Beeston a couple of times.
So I will pass on this one, I am fussy who I drink with.
Using a different Avatar are you, very clever.
