Good simple common sense conclusions that most supporters should be able to arrive at unaided. While FFP only applies to UEFA competitions its impact is going to be inhibited though it will have an effect. For it to really bite though the PL would need to introduce it but as the PL is only about money and no longer has any pretence to be sporting competition there isn't much chance of that ever happening unless FIFA ever get brave enough to impose rules for financial governance.

I knew all along the board never thought Abrahamovic invasion when they decided to go on the Stadium Plan which was a big risk NO ONE as ever taken since then. The only way to know if we will change direction is if FFP doesn't work, and AFC can only follow the model they believe in until it fails. So fellas we are in for another ride of 1 or 2yrs of BSM "Business Sustaining Model". I am very sure ManCity and Chelsea have a surprise in the coffin that nobody else has thought about.

It will take a few seasons before the resolve of Uefa will be tested. If they pass that test successfully it will work but the game changer will be domestic leagues implementing similar rules. That won't come voluntarily from the PL.

As I posted it in the other thread.. FFP is a farce. Man city et al will find loopholes and we will still be stuck in *****.

Amos you don't fill me with any optimism, I thought you were definitely bullish on our future because of this. This makes me sad. Ivan's pretty much done a Wenger except changed it to "judge me in 3 years".

i have a question here. since the cost of the stadium is leveraged on low interest long term bond of which we have no intention of paying off anytime before maturity, why keep over 160 mil in the bank (figure based on financial report 2011)? the amount was generated over years of the group's profit. we do not clamour for a 20 mil signing digging from any billionaire's pocket. surely we can afford one using our current self-sustaining business model. also, why not willing to pay exceptional players what they are worth of?

I don't see why you shouldn't be optimistic with or without FFP. Neither Chelsea or City can continue to spend they way they have been indefinitely. It will come to an end one day. We are the only club to have won something in each of the last 9 successive historical decades. The current, and tenth one has only just started. The sustainable model will ensure we continue to compete. There's no better club to follow if you're a lifetime supporter. I'm most definitely bullish about our future.

Why will it have to come to an end? And relatively soon? 5 years? 10 years? Leaving the on the pitch issues as an aside (and there are lots) The same thing happens every year at this new stadium we built cos we're so forward thinking. I can't see it, sell.
