Exactly! And at this situation, the rich clubs would keep getting stronger and richer while the struggling clubs stay down. Or at most would take years to crawl back up. No matter the good intentions of these ffp rules, it is flawed. Something is wrong, as you say.I guess the rationale is you supposedly didn't finance your qualification the right way, so by right you should disqualified.
All in all, as crazy as the FFP has been punishing us, I think there are some aspects of it we as casual fans don't know and have not thoroughly studied.
It simply does not make sense that a club like ours cannot put in money as they want, so they can buy the required players to create a financially-sustainable club.
Once you have good players > you perform well in the league > you attract fans > you qualify for the Champions League > you earn more TV money > you earn more from merchandise and ticket sales.
But now we can't invest in good players to begin the cycle above?
Something is wrong somewhere....
