Yep.
I think they should implement some form of transfer tax system where maybe 1 or 2% of any transfer fee paid in the premier league is then put into a pot for the lower leagues. This wouldn't be a huge burden on the premier league and given prices at the moment would raise a fair bit of money.
They could even ringfence it and say the money can only be used for facilities, youth teams or backroom staff as those always get forgotten about amid the glitz of the players.

Macclesfield lost millions as a club over the past few years but the owners ran out of patience funding the club. It wouldn't be as simple as throwing £500k into the club. I agree something should be done to help clubs with money from higher up the pyramid but all of footballs financials are all over the place. It's a big problem.

I feel the players need to take some responsibility and be a bit more realistic when it comes to wages.

At the moment even championship clubs are on the brink.

How many employees in other sectors would be willing to take pay cuts?

I can't imagine Macclesfield players were earning much.

Edit:

I don't know how accurate this is, but the average wage at Macclesfield was £756 a week.

Not a bad wage of course (£40k ish a year) but not bad in the world of football. And for such a short career it's peanuts.

Indeed. You're going to absolutely spank us on Sky in a few days. Something to look forward to all round.

I wasn't going to say anything. Happy enough though considering it's a line up of players that I don't expect to feature much this season.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

2 wins in 2 games for Luton, not bad at all.
Looking good for a solid, upper mid table finish with maybe a sniff at the play-offs.

Pretty good considering the lack of funds they had for new players.

Wycombe gaffer is a big, big Rovers man, he definitely told his lads to take a dive. I genuinely can't remember the last time we put five past someone, or a Rovers player scored a league hat trick.

At least their social distanced.

Not sure how I feel about Wimbledon's first couple of games two draws is better than last season but we really look dodgy at the back so could easily start losing again. Think we've still got a better team than last year.

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

Have to be excited to see Ibe come back to us, especially as a free signing. Our transfer business has actually been pretty good this window — now we just need to round things off with a proper target man and then stop being thoroughly awful on the pitch as soon as possible!

We’ve just signed our 11th player of this window! :slol: :fp:

Scott McKenna joined from Aberdeen for £3m rising to £5/6m. That follows Harry Arter joining on a perm from Bournemouth late yesterday.

Our strategy seems to be accumulate, accumulate! Apart from the £14-16m sale of Matty Cash ( :x :cry: ) to scummy Villa, and undisclosed (small?) value sale of Tyler Walker to Coventry,we’ve not sold anyone else (yet) to balance the books and FFP.

Incomings so far for Forest are:
GK - Abdoulaye Diablo (Senegal international apparently). Free as unattached
RB - Cyrus Christie. Season loan from Fulham
LB - Tyler Blackett. Free transfer after he left Reading
CB - Loic Mbe Soh. £5m from PSG
CB - Scott McKenna. £3m-£6m from Aberdeen
DM - Faoud Bachirou. £600k from Malmo
DM - Jack Colback. Free transfer after he left Newcastle
CM - Harry Arter. Undisclosed from Bournemouth
AM - Luke Freeman. Season loan from Sheff Utd.
CF - Miguel Angel Guerrero. Free transfer from Olympiakos
CF - Lyle Taylor. Free transfer after leaving Charlton


A complete new side! After 2 defeats in the league (3 if you include the Carabao cup before season started), no goals scored and now having spent a chunk of Cash’s cash, the pressure is really on Sabri to get a team settled and winning
