You have to think this. We're following France, Spain and others as positive tests per day increase rapidly meaning more restrictions to come. I'd be very worried for some of our rival's finances.

Iím convinced that our strategy is to keep finances on a shoe string on the assumption that some of those around us will fall foul and be punished.

Wait for it to blow over and build again.

I'd be interested to know how much money I-follow makes us. Only £10 not £22, but do you get it for both away and home games? How many people do we get watching vs real attendance

To be honest I think that's a pretty sound strategy!

Wonít there be some kind of bail out at some point though - Iím not saying there should be but it could mean that clubs who havenít been as prudent as us might benefit in the long run?

From who?

Iím sure Iíve read that the premier league weíre being asked for some kind of bail out but there were possibly strings attached which made it pretty unappealing.

At the moment we have absolutely no idea when anyone will be allowed in the ground . It could be well into next year .
On that basis , I can understand the prudent approach to transfers . Who knows how long we can survive this .
If Portsmouth can pay the likes of Michael Jacobs with no one coming into the stadium they are taking a risk unless they are backed by a benefactor

Look forward to some vaguely good news appearing at some point in the next 18 months.
Be sure to take credit Shoey.

I mean, they'll still be limited to the wage cap, which I'd imagine theyd comfortably support with their attendances - ground open or not, seasom tickets and ifollow should give them that.

The wage cap puts any established team at a huge advantage compared to a side that wants to play money ball after the cap for a couple of seasons. 

My understanding is that any existing contract counts as £1,500 pw.

Signed this window
Player A - £4,000 pw
Player B - £4,000 pw
Player C - £4,000 pw
Total against wage cap - £12,000 pw - £624,000 pa

Existing contract
Player A - £4,000 pw (counts as £1,500)
Player B - £4,000 pw (counts as £1,500)
Player C - £4,000 pw (counts as £1,500)
Total against wage cap - £4,500 PW - £234,000 pa

The bigger clubs ala Portsmouth, Sunderland and Ipswich will not really be affect by this cap when it comes to existing contracts. It's when those run down they are going to have issues maintaining their squad strength or if they are trying to make high profile signings now. Although many will have a fair bit to play with because of this £1.5k rule.

Every club is aware of the financial situation, this it not exclusive to football.

I would be very annoyed if clubs were to **** and get bailed out when others have managed them selves correctly. Any bail out should come with a hefty point deduction and potential relegation.

Arenít Portsmouth owned by the CEO of Disney - I think itís fair to say heís probably got a few quid? Sorry Evers youíre going to have to do your own research, like I said I canít even recall if that was the case I was just wondering if anyone knew. (Edit - just google football league bail out and it comes up - sorry I donít know how to embed links).

If enough teams need bailing out we could find ourselves in the Prem by default  Grin

Just saw KC iFollow Bristol City interview

Said we are 'getting closer' on a few new signings

Has a few more meetings with players in the books

Think were in a queue of transfers where someone needs to move to set off a domino effect of movement
