Salford City poised to make Bolton captain David Wheater the highest paid player in L2 apparently matching his £10kpw wage he was on at Bolton. Blackpool also interested but cannot match Salford spending power.

Blatant cheating.
Oh it is obviously cheating the system, exactly as FGR did last season and this. Salford had an average gate of 2,800 last season.

If the FFP (Salary Cost Management Protocol) regulation is there then it should be adhered to without any "sponsorship/loan loopholes" that Bristol City, Bournemouth, Mansfield, FGR and many many others have found a way round it applying to them.

In L2 clubs can spend 55% of the clubs turnover on wages.

Quote
The Football League turnover figure includes donations from the owners of the club as long as there is no expected repayment to the donor. This means clubs can't rely on large cash loans for their income.

Injections of equity also count as turnover. Therefore a wealthy owner can fund the club in ways that are not permitted in other divisions.

This injection of equity should be banned as it is blatantly cheating the system in place to stop clubs overspening on wages, hence having the FFP/SCMP in the first place.

The Turnover of a club should not include this.

If you get more fans through the turnstyles and from cup runs or selling players then you should be able to spend more on players wages, simple.

I don't have a problem with clubs spending money that they have got.
The rules / loopholes are the same for everyone.

Clubs like Bury or Bolton are a different matter and are both reaping what they've sown.

It's up to the EFL to try and police the whole business of funding a lot more effectively than they are.

Indeed, Bury very specifically have clearly been spending, or committing to spend, well beyond their revenue and didn't seem to have any sponsorship/donations from a benefactor to use to do so, that's what so odd about them getting into that state.  It means the rules must be pointless.

Using Investment is sort of what we did under Black, so we were just as guilty on that one  In fact, as it was loaned capital, it was slightly worse than just plain investment.  We had to be well beyond 100% of income as playing wages.  But we at least had a source of funding - Bury didn't.

We went under a self-reported embargo under black to prevent us from going over the line.

We were the one's that informed the FA/FL, and we were still accused of cheating.

Me too.

And Brentford. Their fans were slagging us off for 'cheating' while they were doing the same thing, only on a much larger scale. Chris Wilder also put his boot in when he was at the Pox. Only for it to transpire at a later point that they were racking up more debt than we were.

But Swindle town, eh!

All pretty irrelevant moaning really. Football is corrupt full stop. We only turn blind eyes when it suits. We're all as guilty as fuck for condoning it.
