That was after the goalposts were moved, but before they were moved we were on target to just scrape in and that's were the £3-4 mill pb mentions, could have made the difference between sanctions and no sanctions., but as you say irrelevant to the discussion now. It's only when posters were saying FFP had nothing to do with prices, my point was up to 2 or 3 years ago it did play a part.Irrelevant to the discussion perhaps but I had it in mind that we 'failed' by just over the £10 million mark once UEFA moved the goalposts?
If I remember part of the deal to reduce sanctions was to break even the year after which after allowable losses were taken off we did, but only just so again matchday income was an important part.
Where we all agree is that since then and especially next season then there is no relevance between prices and FFP.
Edit just seen PB explain it much better.
