Players we bought before FFP was dreamed up cannot be counted. (the wages that is)
don't worry about FFP lads the 2 biggest clubs in the world Real Madrid and Barcelona are in debt of real(750mil) and barca(578mil).....you really think they are gonna ban the two biggest clubs in the world from the biggest non international competition in the world?
Not when debt isn't counted. They also have incomes of over £300 million a year which helps them alot
true but there annual expenditure must be ridiculous if there still in debt and pulling in 300 mil a year?.....either way there gonna have a harder time balancing there books then we are
You can add Chelsea to that list. The only way that they seem to be able to qualify for the Champions League for next season is to win it. Failure to qualify even if they are in the Europa League will knock a big hole in their revenue for next season and make it much harder to come anywhere near FFP targets.
the rash of new contracts that the club got players signed to also helps amorisation costs. as a matter of course, the club writes down the value of player signing outlays evenly over the length of their initial contract, but if the player then signs a new contract, the balance of amortisation spreads over the new contract period. Joe hart, zabba, vinny, and others have all signed new contracts. small differences, but useful. zabba's registration amortisation might have gone from £1.5m a year to about £350k a year, for eaxample.
TBH I can't see city spending more than £20m net this summer, though, we're nearly there and we need a couple of extra options in the squad, not wholesale changes. we can't rush it. Kolarov, Toure and Johnson would have to stay for at least another year because the likes of adebayor, bridge and RSC are far greater concerns from a roster management point of view. I guess Tevez will finally get his wish and I'd use the money to look for some good value players that add options to the squad.
