Platini Backs Football League Financial Plans
Monday, 13th Jun 2011 17:00
UEFA president Michel Platini has backed the Football League’s move to adopt UEFA’s Financial Fair Play framework at last week’s summer conference. Chief executive Simon Clegg represented the Blues at the conference, which was held in Cyprus.
Football League clubs agreed to develop measures which will lead to a ‘break-even model’, meeting the objectives of UEFA’s framework.
League Two clubs already operate what’s called the Salary Cost Management Protocol (SCMP) which limits player wages to 60% of turnover, which they will reduce to 55%, while League One clubs will also adopt the SCMP.
Championship sides have opted to move towards the introduction of “new regulations to be developed and approved” by the beginning of the 2012/13 season.
Platini welcomed the developments: "We are very happy to see that Football League clubs, under the umbrella of The FA, are again taking the initiative on good governance issues by introducing Financial Fair Play.
"We are delighted that enlightened football bodies across the continent are trying to restore financial sanity to football on a national level, just as we are trying to do on a European level."
Town’s accounts to June 2010 showed player and coaching costs of £13.45 million, which was 85.3% of turnover. Overall staffing costs were 108.1% of turnover.

Doom and Gloom – But Why? by paulthebluealien
It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.
Marcus Evans and Mr John by HarryfromBath
Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.
The Long Ball Hump by Ipswichlove
Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
