I know it wouldn't be so easy to implement and it magically fixes all the issues with football, but something has to give FFS!!!


You'd have to apply a uniform tax across all Leagues (and Countries), you'd have to change the employment laws in a dozen countries, you'd have to 'fix' currency rates for footballers, you'd have to 'fund' the smaller clubs to reach a salary cap, you'd have to get top earning players to accept massive pay cuts, etc. etc. etc .......

and most impossibly -

you'd have to get the rich clubs to give up their power to the poor ones .... that's turkeys voting for x-mas

IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN

This is not a new phenomenon, there have always been successful wealthy clubs, superstar players, large contracts ...

Unlike sports that are played in just one Country, and so can be governed by just one set of laws, football is played in dozens of Countries all with very different laws ... they haven't managed to align VAT in Europe despite twenty years of trying, there's not a hope off aligning football clubs wages and taxes, even if it were legally allowable, which in most Countries it currently isn't ....



I don't agree, I think it can happen, I don't think some of those things are true. It wouldn't be easy yes, but it could happen. You can't sit there and say it will never happen, that's silly.

I agree too. Football is broken and these issues need to be brought up to show ways of football improving!

What the hell?

Bartomeu has to be one of the most selfish and incompetent Presidents in recent Barca history. The man is hell bent upon destroying Barca.

It's not enough having Andre Gomes now they have to add Paulinho for 36 million. Someone must be sabotaging Barca from the inside.

Paulinho's transfer to Barcelona confirmed by Guangzhou coach Scolari: "The high price paid by Barcelona in order to sign him is a strong recognition of Guangzhou Evergrande Football Club. We wish him all the best and that he can embrace a bright future."
