Has stepped down as manager of Burton along with his coaching team as a cost cutting measure . A clear sign of how difficult it's likely to get for many clubs i fear .

On the news last night . Burton have already built up an overdraft of 700k just keeping the club running since the lock down . They have absolutely no income , coming in and now have this months wages , bills to pay with no money to do so and they are generally regarded as a well run club who probably started in a much healthier position than many .

football is sort of doing a full circle
from the days of the maximum wage being lifted
ie Johnny Haynes the first £100 footballer to the ludicrous sums of money splashed about
back to what is beginning to look like clubs having to self monitor to stay alive.
if only for the medium term.
it will imo hit lower league(s) players proportionally the hardest.
the elite will still command a fee due to TV.

fwiw we as a club "could" be in a better situation than most lower down clubs
taking it all in.
with very low commitments if im reading the situation right

as ever all conjecture on my part.

Thing is - there have been enough warnings/instances where is clear clubs have to take a serious look at themselves but neither they or the government body has done sweet FA (relevant initials).


Keep saying -
clubs must present budgets to the leagues; like Germany.
Loans (other than from banks) must be time limited and regulated.
Donations must be paid up front.
Playing budgets should not change during season.


I guess many loopholes / problems with above BUT a start.


People’s view of Man City May vary BUT the FFP rules meant they increased the cost of admission.

Imo the professional game is too big in this country . We have five levels / divisions of full time football with well over 100 full time clubs and even the top levels of semi pro pay enough for many players to actually be full time in all but name . In other country they usually only have two or three levels of full time and the leagues go regional much higher , usually by about level 3 . Without a big money backer there's no way its sustainable for clubs like Morecambe & Macclesfield to try and run themselves full time as the costs go well beyond just the first team squad .

But, when your suggest going part time to any full time club.....

Unlikely now - but not so long ago I longed to see a semi pro team get promoted and remain semi pro.


Problem is - part time players can earn more than full time ones.

Agree many clubs would rather go bust than even consider it but that doesn't mean there being realistic .
The fans are the real problem , imagine the reaction of fans at say Port Vale if they announced they were going part time .

Footballers in league 1 and 2 (and the rest) are already part time hours in work time wise.
Just means training will take place in afternoons evenings etc they will have to take other jobs if they want, wages and signing on fees will say who gets the best players as now.

The problem is if say Div 1-2 went part time with promotion and relegation before long you will get a bigger club dropping into those Divisions who won’t go part time, not that long ago that clubs like Man City and Wolves were down there.
