FFP rules affect all clubs, we have gambled and it hasn't paid off but we have a very capable squad and there is still money in the kitty, not all bad news as the OP would have you believe.

Neither you or I know what wage players are on. I don't particularly think we need a significant signing, adequate cover in defence would do.

Whilst not about Wednesday it is about FFP, I can't see how they are going to control it when players earn so much. I copied the text below off Sky transfer centre. A Man City player stalling on a contract of £30,000 a week at 17 years old, the game truly has gone mad.

The Sun*are reporting that*Arsenal*look well placed to sign academy winger*Jadon Sancho*from*Manchester*City.
Apparently the 17-year-old is stalling on signing a new three-year deal worth £30,000-a-week and is keen to join Arsenal "in search of a clearer pathway to senior football

The chairman confirmed at the steering group tonight that there is still money available for players which dispels some of the comments above. He did say that it could impact should we not go up this season

We offered £3m for Sean Morrison, Cardiff asked for £4.5m, we upped the offer they demanded £6m we upped to £6m they asked for £8m - the deal broke down at that stage.

What I don't understand is why we don't sell a striker or central midfielder or both in order to fund a couple of defenders.

It covers both transfer fees and wages amongst other things.....although stadium & training facilities expenditure is exempt.

All being Said I think There was some bad signings that Did not play games And still taken a wage , Most seem to have left or Leaving . but all that wage adds up . CC or his scouts got to be to blame for that on some level . Strikers wise lets be honest how many have swfc got and how many does a team need ??

A committee is responsible for signings, most of the strikers are under contract and can only be sold if A) they want to go and B) somebody wants them.

Agree but maybe 2 strikers will play so that leaves the others picking up a wage ,
and these days players seem happy if they still getting a wage and not playing
