Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
It is ironic though that the FFP rules designed to keep clubs in check and are at least partly intended to keep them from going bust punishes violations by, er, making clubs go bust.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
PL and the FA need to have a sit down and sort this shit out.
QPR blatently broke the rules on FFP, but the promotion has stopped them being punished.

i hope they go down.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
I see Tony Fernandes said that he wont stand in Harry's way should the FA want to consider him for the England job!!! They didn't want him last time Tony. Keep up.


Aidy Boothroyd has got more chance than Harry.

I don't doubt it but FFP wasn't in place at the time to my knowledge and QPR cannot say they did not know about it. It was just arrogance to expect they would not get relegated after spending beyond their means.

Much as I'd feel for QPR fans if they see their club implode, maybe they will see Fernandes for what he really is.
Aren't they supposed to be building a new stadium too which has hit some issues.

The fine is because they were promoted as a result of the over spending

had they not gone up last year they'd have had a points deduction instead

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
Crazy rule logic

QPR overspend - so fine them 54m

Yeah that will work

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
The rules are there to stop clubs from spending beyond their means. Lots of clubs get relegated that don't spend beyond their means.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
Not followed it that much so maybe my comments are bit OTT, however there does seem to be a whole grey area around the QPR case with them being a relegated club, im surprised there haven’t been a few legal cases to come out of this not least from Clubs who missed out on promotion or the play offs and im sure clubs at the other end of the table may well think they have a case against there relegation.

On the Man City fine though, that just stinks of deals behind closed doors, and something very wrong with rewarding the rich elite clubs for Man City’s wrong doing, if the money is to go anywhere then surely to the grass roots and developing the sport rather than in the pockets of clubs like Chelsea, Real Madrid or Man U.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
I've not really followed this but I believe that Man City and QPR are in breach of rules from different bodies.

QPR's breach are of Football League rules rather than an international body. On the surface the rules don't seem to take account of the financial realities of clubs being relegated from the Premier League. Not that QPR were not reckless.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
A FIFA charity no doubt, based in Switzerland for current and former executives of said organisation, yet Man City’s reduced fine goes straight to the likes of Chelsea and Man U, unbelievable.

Fair play, FIFA style

I think I read that the fine would go to charity.

Very sad for the fans if true.

Also, you look at Man city who are also in trouble for FFP and what happens?, fine is reduced, slap on the wrists, and the much smaller amount they have to pay gets distributed to the rich elite champions league clubs, does this mean any QPR fine will be distributed between the Championship clubs from last season?, am I being pessimistic when I think NO it wont,....

I'm sure we've done that occasionally. Too many to mention, actually, but let's start with Freddie.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
This is only hearsay but I was having a drink with a friend last Friday who told me that he had recently met the CFO from Air Asia and thus new Fernandes very well. This guy is due to take over as CFO of QPR in the new year but admitted that 'Tony' had told him that if the club lost its appeal on the FFP fine it was likely that it would fold. No idea how much truth in this - just passing on what I was told.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
They had a massive unfair advantage over every other team in that division and should be made to pay the fine as soon as it is dished out. They knew they were not just breaking the rules but taking the piss out of them.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
Weird that on the same day two clubs are in the news falling foul of ffp when we have been reliably informed our chairmen made it up

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
Dodged a bullet with this Fernandes bloke.

The FFP rules really are fucking joke though, nothing fair about them whatsoever.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
I find it astounding that someone who is supposed to be a businessman issued player contracts to past it players for silly sums of money with no relegation clauses that reduced their salaries.
He then has the nerve to try and shift the blame like it's not his fault they blew FFP rules even though they purposely ignored them by buying in more players in an effort to get promoted.

If QPR's figures for last year don't show a massive loss then there is definitely some creative accounting going on.

Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
I like the idea of it tbh but the brains behind it need to get it right, it's sounds like a right fucking as it is ... Player contracts with clauses so clubs need to help themselves IMO

sam allardyce 11:14 Tue Sep 9
Re: Qpr could be in the conference next season
It's a stupid rule. Most teams being relegated will have massive wage bills and a hugely diminished income almost inevitably leading to them falling foul of FFP. Relegated teams should have a couple of seasons to comply.
