    New Forest CEO makes FFP a priority

    The new Forest CEO has decided to make FFP a priority but it seems like he is confident it won't be enforced.

    Some quotes from the article:


    After taking up his new post at the City Ground, former Aston Villa CEO Faulkner says getting to the bottom of the issue will be one of his first priorities.


    "I am hoping to talk to people at the Football League to get my arms around that side of things. It is an important part of the club,"

    "There is a starting point, which will be to spend some time with the people at the Football League, to make sure we understand the nuances of it.

    "There are a lot of debates and discussions around it. There is still a question mark there.


    Seems a very different stance to us that's for sure.
    Never forgive my grandad for making me go get him a tea just before half-time, only Seagull in the ground who missed a Bobby Zamora screamer!

      Let's hope he's in for a nasty little surprise when he checks the books at Forest.

      So they spend the money then go running asking for some clarfication on the rules, shouldn't they have done this right at the start. Hope FFP comes down hard on the clubs that broke the rules. Only reason they are top is because they have overspent. By the time anything gets around to being sorted out they will probably have been promoted.

      I think he may be a little too late to make it a proirity
      "Forget the goals, Vicente produced the moment of the match, if not the season here at the Amex, with a slalom like run,
      in which he beat six or seven players before unleashing a fierce drive that rattled the crossbar"

      I was under the impression they had a 500m sponsorship deal over 10 years, so a lovely 50m a year from the chairman/company. These are exactly the nuances he's talking about i'm sure, who decides what market value of a sponsorship deal is I dont know.

      I'm willing to bet they meet the FFP requirments.

      We have a New Forest down here. That has Verderers not CEO's.
      Exiled amongst the red and white, at the wrong end of the A/M27. (P)

      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.........Time to die.

      Convenient after spunking ridiculous money on untold amounts of players in the past 2 years. It won't be enforced anyway, pathetic loopholes will be found and clubs will just take it to court if it came to it.

      I don't understand this quote from him

      "Even if Forest were hit with an embargo, they could, in theory, sign new players, under specific circumstances.

      If a player leaves the club, they can be replaced as long as any new player does not earn more money than the one who has departed"

      Is this not what clubs do to stay within a clubs budget anyway?

      I think it will be even sweeter if we finish above teams like Forest this season, working within FFP and still finishing top 6 would be a great achievement.

      Seems to be so many definitions of FFP and different views on how to adhere - or appear to be adhering. Some clubs would appear to be attempting to abide by the letter of the regulations whilst others seem to be dedicated looking for loopholes and grey area's. The Forest sponsorship scheme last year was an example.

      QPR went for broke last year and got away with it. I refuse to accept they came close to complying. There's been plenty of questions regarding Forests Compliance too. Will the Football League or Premier League have the balls to really financially clobber those clubs who have taken the piss? We await with interest.......
