This are what some fans said in response to the changing of rules by FFP.
This absolutely stinks. 10 years of trying to hunt city and PSG down and then when now because of current affairs city are the only club in decent enough financial shape to spend a lot, and all the others struggling they pull away the restrictions. I fucking hate UEFA

How about making financial fair play actually fair play 🤷🏼♂️ all clubs have a equal cap of transfer funds and wages so that EVERY team has a chance. Not tell the smaller clubs you can’t expand your club because you haven’t earned enough as much as Real Madrid last year

Good. Gives other teams such as Everton, West Ham, Newcastle etc the power to spend big if they can get decent ownership. Shouldnt be a closed shop at the top.

It is believed the new rules would be lighter in terms of restriction and would allow clubs spend freely (rumoured belief). According to the Tactical times ‘Clubs may spend any amount per transfer window as long as 10% of the total can fit inside one extra-large brown envelope’.
