As far as I know about the ffp rules now I might be wrong but hope this helps NBTB. A club is not allowed be in dept of more than 50mill and if they are they must significantly be trying to reduce it, a team can only spend what they earn example player sales, sales from club products Kits and stuff, commercial income from sponsors, TV money gate receipts. As far as I know a owner cannot take money from his personal finances and just hand it to the manager to buy players I think this was one of the reasons this rule was brought in hope this helps but as I said that's my take on the ffp rules.

In essence that is bang on. However if your Man City you can give naming rights to the stadium as an example. Point is there is ways round it. Moshiri could set up Goodison Park ltd and pay 500 mill for naming rights.
The reality is as I have said since he became majority shareholder, he's only the 8th richest share holder in the prem. He's not even the owner of Everton. We see some change when he gets over 50% shares but even then he's not mega rich in premier league football terms.

{Ed002's Note - Really, it is nothing like this.}

As in everything in life football fair play rules can be 'adjusted' to suit. However, even when they are judged to have been flouted the fines are not exactly debilitating.

Sponsorship does not work as you think. I put this forward a while back but looking into it there are rules over it and setting up a dummy company can't be done.

Using his own investments have to be approved by that particular business to invest in sponsorship with Everton and they will want a fair price.

He can invest some monies and use the club and himself to get loans against future revenues. Our commercial side though will be improved and I'm sure this will be an area that will increase rapidly but the big one is the new stadium.

Naming rights, more commercial activity and revenues from events should see us being able to compete with the big boys. No reliance then on a billionaire. The Arsenal model.

''not exactly debilitating. ''

Couldn't agree more BCT . virtually no forfeiture at all!

You should all look up what one of the Ed's wrote on the FFP rules a while back probably be able to use the search function and it clears a lot of it up.

{Ed001's Note - it will be by Ed002 if that helps the search.}
