We are not skint in the sense of the club having cash available but due to the controls over players wages expenditure FFP/STCC there are limits to how much can be spent which in turn is derived from specific income streams. No one outside of the club has an accurate understanding of what can and can't be spent and it's not in the club's interest to widely publicise accurate figures and so it will remain unclear.

Once that becomes clear then it is normally followed by a circular argument about how the club should just ignore those limits because they perceive other clubs do. As no one outside those clubs and governing bodies/accountants actually know this is as pointless as the rest.

If the governing bodies decided to make a point and penalise clubs with transfer bans, points deductions or huge fines no doubt the same people would moan that the club shouldn't have broken the regs. Doh ...... Merry Xmas

I am not sure if these limits are effective in terms or protecting club solvency or not but it's pretty clear that it makes the management of the squad even more complex than it already was.
