I've been neglecting the dossier of finances lately but Tranmere are definitely on the naughty list. How did Vernam do on his debut? I couldn't face the match day thread after another defeat.
Why don't you agree with FFP? It's designed to ensure that Club's don't lose more than 'x' over a rolling three year period and has resulted in a substantial decrease in losses across football.I dont agree with wage caps or the FFP.
For a start why should a club with more fans be able to spend more than a club with less? If the answer is more fans equals more money coming into the club therefore they have a right to spend it then I will reply..."Our owner is richer than your owner therefore we should be able to spend more than you" *
The amount of money a club should be able to spend should be dependent on the amount of money a club has (legally) coming in not It's source. Why can't a rich person plough cash into their club? And let's all be honest. How many clubs in the football league are propped up by wealthy investors now or in the past? Nearly all I would say.
The problem is not a rich person spending their cash on a football club. It's owners saddling a club with debt in the hope of making money from It's sale or getting an unrealistic return in the future. What I can agree with is there should be a cap on the amount of loans a club can owe to the members of the board/owners etc. Find a way to do that and a lot of the problems, except jealousy, disappear.
*to be clear I'm not saying Crawley's owners are the wealthiest. I'm just using an example.
Our chief executive mentioned some interesting views ahead of the meeting of league two clubs tomorrow.
His point is say Southend and Grimsby go down they could argue that this is down to the salary cap as they could of signed player X who could of helped keep them up for example with a rule which wasn’t right to be in place.
We voted against it as it stops ambitious clubs but are uncomfortable with the rule changing just after a window.
probably a lot of other clubs who are just keeping it quiet....Don't know how many, if any, other Club's are doing this but Barrow have followed Chesterfield's lead in putting out of favour players on furlough.

I'd imagine that apart from the 2 mentioned in the article the other 4 will be 2 that are injured and out for the season as well as players that would have been loaned out to lower leagues which are not continuing.
I agree - but if others are doing it why should we as a club handicap ourselves by not doing the same. because of our very low number of not playing club staff i bet we have less people on furlough than every other club in L2.Just because others may be doing it does not mean it is anywhere near morally correct, given it is a job retention scheme, not a "fuck some employees off for a bit so we can bring in someone better at the job" scheme.

I agree that it isn't a great look, but I bet the EFL and PFA amongst others were consulted before any decisions were made.
The Stevenage gambit.I think Barrow should be deducted some points, the amount of points to be determined at the end of the season so that they finish a point below us.
While we’re there is there anything we can pin on Southend too to come to the same decision on them?
Barrow have over the 22 maximum players......if they have de registered injured players and put them on furlough
They need the book throwing at them
Why? At the recent fans forum Mark Palios said we were under the salary cap and the highest weekly wage was about £1.5k. We’ve not done any stellar business in the transfer window either, ins and outs balanced off.I've been neglecting the dossier of finances lately but Tranmere are definitely on the naughty list.
Yes i agree and that was because of mismanagement at the top. We as a football club paid a heavy price for that.Mate, your club literally ruined local businesses by not paying what they were owed. No moral high ground for you.
It's legal, it's shitty, the club has shot itself in the foot PR-wise and it leaves a sour taste, but you can also bet half the clubs in this league are doing the same. Or worse.
