    Sounds like a lot of guesswork and assumption in that article. I will wait and see what the club say before being concerned

    Me too Loughie. Mel has been consistent in saying we won't break FFP rules.

    Will a deduction be down to " interpretation". If so, then it is a sorry state of affairs.

    Also, if we really are on the edge of FFP sanctions, would it have been a wise move to give one of our best paid players, Hudds, a 1 year extension on his contract?

    Wait n see.

    I'm with Loughie with his guesswork and assumptions comment but if the rumours had any grain of truth in them I would be disappointed with Mel for his "we are within the FFP rules" multiple comments, and now wants to sell the club because he got it wrong?

    I like having a fan at the helm so I hope that with all my heart all this is bullsh*t.

    Apparently Frank Lampard is reviewing his future at the end of the season, what ever happened to the phrase "when the going gets tough the tough get going?

    Find it interesting that we have not heard from Mel.
    If his intention was to try and see the season out before addressing off field rumours I don’t think he’s going to be able to pull that off.
    As usual this stuff is picking up steam and will need some kind of comment one way or another.

    .... and Bennett fit too.

    Ambrose. Is his international clearance in yet? Can't remember seeing anything on it........... anywhere.

    Be a right bugger if we made the playoffs and then got docked points for playing an illegible player....... and oh so DCFC LOL

    Huddlestone, Johnson, Evans;
    Mount, Bryson, Holmes, Wilson; Bird

    14.6M profit they say mainly down to the sell off and lease back of the ground.

    Staff costs 11M more than turnover which is something that is not sustainable but ought to see us within FPP rules if I've read it correctly.

    That should stave off any points deduction based on the leaked info from that EFL meeting at the ****ty Ground

    Must admit I don't like it when the stadium is not owned by the football club. I don't doubt Mel's motives but clubs that don't own their own ground can run into catastrophic problems.

    I think it was the accountants way of staving off FFP.
    I dont like it either, but at least Mel is a fan, so i doubt we will have the problems Cov have had!
    We look safe for this season, next will be helped with players being released, but all would change should we go up...c'mon Frank, lets have a right go at it!
