Not a Chance in Hell!

Not a Chance in Hell!

Coming over the horizon, pretty fast, is the annoyance that is the Financial Fair Play Regulations.

Now I say annoyance because every man and his dog knows that if any of Europe`s top clubs flout the regulations, we`d be seriously surprised if any serious punishments were handed out, let alone bar the offenders from European competition.

Therefore, whilst secretly admiring the attempts of our own Premier League to bring in radical new financial guidelines that would require clubs to break even and also impose a cap on the extent to which clubs can increase their wage bills each year, does it really stand a chance of actually happening?

The reason why I ask is that if I have doubts about the aforementioned Financial Fair Play regulations being adhered to, why would clubs adhere to similar restraints in their domestic leagues?

Continuing on this theme, it`s interesting that put to the vote the vast majority of the Premier League clubs were behind the proposals with, we believe, three who were in opposition, these three being Aston Villa, Fulham and surprise, surprise Manchester City.

If the big-spenders that are Manchester City are not prepared to be reigned in then what chance do any such suggestions have?

Your views would be most appreciated!

One thing am sure of is that Mitchel Platini is really pushing the elite clubs of Europe to the wall. I pity him he doesnt stretch his limits. The ffp regulation although having its advantages, i see it as an effort to oppress some clubs as there will not be complete fair application of the rule. And talking about the methods clubs are using to wriggle themselves out of the net,the sell naming rights of stadia is one obvious method clubs adopt, which i think won't serve as a long lasting solution for them. There's no way there won't be offenders soon enough,anyway. For Cfc,lets just be careful cos i know these goons in Uefa have targeted clubs.

Epl need to check this if they are to remain most watched league on the planet.it should be a free market or capitalism not a controlled market.what they aught have done is to look at what the clubs are doing or intending to do with money.nb:even in free and capitalism markets there are rules.

The FFP should be for mid table clubs who have the risk of running into administration, leave the sugar daddies with their whims and fantasies!! Madrid's squad is the most expensive squad, after that man city and chelsea, are we saying plaitini would expell madrid from europe?? Dream on

More the UEFA will force the hands of the clubs just to favour few clubs, then it is not good for football. UEFA priority should be to give a uniform platform for clubs to compete. It is no coincidence that top clubs in europe are thinking of arranging their own europe league where we can see more high octane matches.

This would cause division when its bein implemented..the epl and platini have to be careful because any act of rebelion from the big club might lead to breakaway and creation of the much speculated europe super league

I thought for a second 'ol Merlin was onto me with the title. Thought it was a reference of going back to the house after I forgot our anniversary.
