    to be fair it is about time that someone somehwere started t ask some pointed questions relating to FFP, and “Fit and Proper Persons”…..????!! That is a complete joke, and it just allows the bigger clubs to spend more mony, because they have receoved sponsorship for every street light and paving stone surounding their ground, to the tune of millions… That does not make “Financial Fair Play”
