At what monetary level does it become pointless to keep spending? After all, the amount of Income receivable is surely reaching saturation. I don't get spending billions on building a squad to win say £500m. The Champions league seems to be the holy grail with just over £2 billion (2022/23) distributed amongst ALL qualifying clubs. Are the big 6 heading for financial trouble? How many years can Chelsea continue to spend big and not qualify for the CL.? When will FFP finally hit them? It seems that Brighton are likely to earn more money from their current transfer policy, seeking low cost talent and selling big, therefore possibly earning more than some of the current big 6. So maybe, eventually we will be a big 6 club because we followed a different course. Thoughts!
