Millwall and Coventry (a point and a place below us) as well....

Some look quite shocking.... Two largest budgets are one and two but Sheffield and Stoke have surprised me!
2022/2023.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

....... especially Stoke is a surprise to me - they were relegated from the PL many, many moons ago !

Nice to know that we are in a reasonably healthy state from a financial point of view aniclap

Very interesting, and truly a feather in Warburton"s cap.

Thanks for posting DEJ

Exactly where does the term " Financial Fair Play" come in?

Well Fulham and Bournemouth have parachute money and if they keep yo-yoing they will stay within FFP and nobody in the Championship will be able to touch them financially. It’s a sort of Premier League close shop but still allowing relegation with those relegated clubs being given a massive advantage.

Not exactly fair though, is it? In the true sense of the word, that is. In any other business, preventing wealthy owners investing would be illegal. True FFP would set a limit on spending for all clubs in each division provided they are either generating the dosh or if owners are willing to pick up the tab. But of course fairness is the last thing on the minds of the EFL turds.

Parachute payments are being reviewed due to the clear and obvious advantage it gives those who have them and of course the clear and obvious disadvantage to those who don't.

The basic problem is that to make things fair would inevitably hamper and restrict the 'haves' while improving the lot of the 'have nots'. Clearly, those at the top of the tree (the very top) want more (that's what the super league was all about), and they couldn't give a tinkers cuss about those at the bottom.
