Ed, on the subject of wondering how certain players manage to get a game, and I think I’ve asked this question before - is it at all possible that there are ‘minimum appearance’ clauses in contracts?

{Ed002's Note - No but it is possible for players of a certain age (28) to force there unilateral termination of a contract within a couple of weeks of the end of a season if he has not played in 10% of games - under such so called "just cause" the club may be entitled to compensation. It doesn't happen.}

Just a thought Ed. Has a back up keeper ever done this?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I recall, clubs are generally pretty good about players who want to leave.}

Thanks Ed and another question about FFP if you don't mind.
If a club gets fined.
A. Does it then reset the 3 year rolling FFP for the club?
B. Would a fine be included in the clubs accounts and therefore FFP for that year?

{Ed002's Note - (a) No. (b) The fine is a deductable expense for the club.}
