    MackworthRamIsGod reacted to uttoxram75 in Middlesbrough to sue the EFL over Derby's Stadium Purchase   
    The FFP was brought in to stop any other club doing a Man City and pushing Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea off the top table. Only 4 Champions League places so what if Spurs or Everton, for instance, had a City type owner....its only there to protect the big boys.
    The only rule should be that the debt is not saddled on the club, the owner takes full responsibility.
    Yes, it would eventually lead to breakaway leagues with no relegation or promotion, but I think it would gradually die as fans would drift to smaller, local clubs for their shot of real football. 
    Maybe there'd be enough subscribers to the fantasy league but without passionate fans in the stadium its not the same no matter how good the players are. The gladiatorial appeal of football, the sheer spectacle of a game that really matters to partisan supporters is why the game is so popular and why SKY can sell their product. Take away the life or death battle for survival from relegation and the game becomes too safe and predictable for the clubs outside the top 5 or 6..
    Scrap FFP and let the owners take the risk. It will sort itsen out organically and people will vote with their feet and subscriptions.

    MackworthRamIsGod reacted to TuffLuff in Just a small tear in my eye for that Chris Martin sub   
    Yep, I’m a Martin guy and yes I think tonight might have been the first time I’ve punched the air when a player was announced to be on the subs bench but what a great ovation for him from the fans tonight.
    Not going to comment on his performance, still a long way to go for him at the moment in those terms, but Martin as a player had deserved that moment and had never really got it. 
    Now the really tough work starts for him on the pitch, hope he keeps showing his worth.

    Apologies, yes I agree, the daily mail closely making a story out of yesterdays news.

    If being worth 600 million dollars is classed as having no money, I'd hate to think what my current financial situation is classed as.

    I remember when the Daily Mail ran the story about Paul Clement potentially becoming our new manager, we all dismissed it as a crazy rumour.
    Daily Mail dont get everything wrong, I also wouldn't believe a word the Derby Telegraph say, simply because there is no way Mel would tell Steve Nicholson that we have held talks before there is anything significant to report.

    I feel sorry for Cocu.
    I said when the window closed and I still maintain it, if you asked him how he feels I bet he would be very disappointed.  I think he expected a couple of quality signings after Rooney and the club didn't deliver.
    If you hire Jame Martin as your personal chef and all you have in the house is a tin of beans, dont expect him to whip up a gourmet meal, likewise, we cant expect Cocu to earn a top 6 spot with the dross we have currently in midfield.

    Knowing Mel it wouldn't surprise me if at the end of all this he ends up owning the EFL after purchasing it for a quid and expels Leeds and Boro from the football league for giggles.

    It just shows you never know how someone is feeling, you dont truly know someone or what they are going through, especially on an internet forum.  Football can be a release, posting on here can help someone feel part of something. Even if someones opinions are negative, this could be a reflection of their personal life.
    This is why I never attack anyone on here regardless of a posters views or opinions, sometimes it can really be something so small that acts as the straw that breaks the camals back, so just think before you post.
    Debate is perfectly fine, but sometimes there is a fine line between banter and being hurtful.
