I really can't see FFP being implemented next season after the lack of action with City and the so far ineffectiveness of clamping down on Villa, Wednesday, Derby etc.

I can imagine next year they will waiver or even scrap FFP due to COVID19. 

There is a vast difference to the domestic EFL FFP and uefas FFP. The latter looks dead in the water but I reckon the EFL and premier league are going to be more strict. Especially with Derby, Wednesday and potentially Villa as they did it pre COVID-19.

Warnock deal 100% done and will be announced shortly. (Not the appointment I wanted) - Friend has been offered extension but on significantly reduced terms with possibility of coaching at the end

In fairness, Warnock didn't leave Cardiff that long ago, so it's not like there's been a massive turnover of players. Some of the players he signed might yet move on for big money. Also, quoting

If we were sacking Karanka to replace him with no one and just accept relegation we should have just stuck with Karanka for the championship, I think we'd have bounce straight back up -----------

Ffp was a platini idea, there are a few in UEFA who want it gone or changed. At the top level it's not for for purpose and lower down the rung it's not stopping clubs going bust.

Cowley and warnock would work for me like. Pearson imo is the best of all worlds, experienced, not too fancy with how he sets teams up but also doesn’t park the bus.

Cant see either of them scenarios happening though, I’m 100% expecting warnock.

My grandfather-in-law has just turned 80 (bear with me, there's a point to this). He's still pretty active, still runs his businesses in his inimitable old-school way, and apart from surrendering his driving licence, is in reasonable health. Nor is he exceptional as an active octogenarian.

People keep saying Warnock will only be here for a year or so because of his age, but is that really the case? Yes he's 71, but he's seemingly incapable of retiring, he loves the Boro, and he's enjoying the job so much he apparently hasn't discussed wages yet. If he wanted to stay for a couple of seasons, I don't see why his age needs to be a barrier.

I do accept he's an old-school manager, but his Cardiff side played some good football en route to the PL, and the team he built dismantled ours at the weekend. And while I'd rather have Pearson now he's available, I don't really buy the whole 'Warnock won't be here for long' argument some people have been advocating lately.

Roy Hodgson is 73 in a couple of weeks.  He's done pretty well with Crystal Palace since joining in 2017.  Warnock seems to know how to put a team together and I think anything would be better than the tripe we've been served up this season.  He certainly has the enthusiasm, hopefully the energy and could (with his knowledge of the Championship) sort out the club regarding transfers etc. with his no-nonsense approach.  

Age is all in the mind.  I speak from experience!

Going around on Twitter that Aitor is going to Birmingham 😭

Birmingham seem to be even more of a mess than we are. Not sure how well that will go

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
