There is no level playing field. It's rubbish says skipper

Luke Chambers says Financial Fair Play is a ‘load of old rubbish’.

The Town skipper is hoping to shake off a virus in time to play against QPR on Saturday, who are one of the clubs that have been affected by the FFP rules over recent years.

“The way I understand it, FFP was brought in to create a level playing field,” writes Chambo in his column in Saturday’s matchday programme.

“Well, if you are going to do that, it should have been across all leagues including the Premier League.

“In my opinion, Financial Fair Play is a load of old rubbish. Owners should be allowed to spend what they want on their clubs and it’s hardly worked as a deterrent has it.

“Clubs have taken a gamble and spent money and some have gone up so any punishment they get is peanuts to the money they get in the Premier League.

“Some of those that haven’t are still spending big in the Championship and there are players at this level earning £40,000 a week. Some level playing field that!”

In his column, Chambo also reveals why the transfer window should be scrapped and argues the loan window is a restriction of trade.
