Just paper talk I guess but just read that Sheffield United have "SMASHED" their transfer record paying £6M for Callum Robinson
Media hype. ‘smashed’ = beaten. Was £5m, now £6m.

...but how this damn FFP is damaging us so much, whereas other clubs supposed to be in similar troubles seem to go pretty fine...?
Because other clubs didn’t have to write off Quarter of a Billion £’s of Debt (before FFP fine) on gates of less than 18k whilst the club pocketed bucket loads of Prem cash and gambled it, then let it ride then chased their loses......

Is that not the point, the debt was written off. FFP was supposedly introduced to stop owners inflicting debt onto clubs and jeopardising their existence. Our owners wrote off the debt. FFP did its job in our case in protecting the club so why the fine. FFP was introduced in reality to make sure clubs like ours know their place.
