Manchester United have spent a reported £289.35 million on players since Fergie retired in 2013. Nice to see financial "fair play" is working.

Modern football now, isn't it? Teams like Leeds, Forest, Derby, Villa etc. have had their day. No one is breaking into that Top 4/5 now, they're too rich.

I reckon the only thing that would stop me is internationals. England are **** but internationals aren't really a closed shop. Unless you're from a really small country or summut.

Premier League is an absolute joke. The worldwide marketing has been terrible for competition.

When money speaks more than skill, you have to question the integrity of the game.

But then I'm also of the opinion that most Premier League footballers are overpaid nancies, so

FFP was always just implemented to keep the status quo and the rich old elite able to fend off the likes of PSG and City at arm's length. This will just get worse and worse, and the disparity between the upper echelons and the lower-league clubs will become increasingly contrasting.

In SAFs last few years the investment in the playing staff was way, way below it needed to be, this money has partly been making up for that failure.

FFP doesn't really affect clubs that generate so much revenue which they can use to spend on players e.g. Barca, Real, and United

It is?

FFP was designed to stop clubs outspending beyond their means and to encourage generating revenue streams within clubs........

You honestly not see that?

So it wasn't to force clubs like Man City to earn money if they wish to grow?

As it has been said, FFP was introduced to maintain Europes hierarchy. There's nothing "Fair" about it.
If PSG or Man City have the money why not spend it?
