"Queens Park Rangers have been ordered to pay a world-record £40million fine after losing a three-year battle against being found guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play rules during their most recent promotion-winning campaign"

They have another appeal to come but the fine is thought to be the largest ever in sport. Leicester and Bournemouth also being pursued.

By the time offenders are punished, any teams they may have gained an advantage over will have been relegated

If QPR have to record the fine in their accounts they may fall foul of FFP again ROFLMAO

True.

But, a huge fine will serve as a deterrent to most clubs in the future.

QPR will be held up as an example.

I agree it is ridiculous that this has taken so long. No wonder some fans on here and SP have queried whether there are any effective rules in place now.

I know our bug bear is the wage cap rather than overall losses but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

To certain owners who are billionaires they will take the fine taking points would hurt them more

Take Leicester's title away from them and dock them and Bournemouth 10 points now. And Brighton too who have clearly cheated thanks to the penguin.

A fine seems a ridiculous punishment. Just means big clubs will take the hit and build it into their accounting. Points deduction should be the way forward. You can guarantee that would be more likely stop clubs like Man City etc from breaking the rules.

Everybody cheats though. Why are Manchester City, Chelsea etc able to spend with impunity? City do stupid shit like the owners “sponsoring” the stadium for 500 million. You can bet they won’t be fined anything. I don’t like QPR but the likes of City are the ones that should be penalised. And bloody PSG- how does that add up? The game is basically a load of old bollocks now isn’t it.

It was unclear last night whether the club would have to record any fine in their latest annual accounts - putting them in danger of failing FFP again this season - or would be allowed to exclude it.

Strike me down for this but anyone paying money for a PL ticket needs their head read. Money in the game is beyond a joke.

1. Money in football is ridiculous.

2. FFP is ridiculous because it gives the biggest clubs a huge advantage.

even if they were fined they'd pay it in an instant.

No, it's total common sense. I refuse to pay the price now because frankly they're ridiculous.

So they pay the £40m, where does that money go?

Good that QPR might get done at last but until they have exhausted every legal manoevre possible to avoud paying or get the fine reduced, I remain sceptical. I am glad Bournemouth are being mentioned - lots on here have shouted me down when I have said they must be in breach with all their spending when they have a small fanbase and capacity. Hope it bites them on the backside
