agree with Brendan! FFP is a wise measure in my opinion. We don't want to see nobody ruined and this is justly the way to follow YNWA

"It's a welcome rule in my eyes, hopefully you will no longer have players just moving for money reasons. Hopefully the young British players will be given more chances. Also the league might throw up some surprise champions rather than the one with the most money. I know we have spent a lot for 3 seasons but we should be better in next 3. "

"In the Prem. it is 2 clubs that depend entirely on on mega rich benefactors. Man City & Chelsea . Utd altho in debt are a world wide brand all the other clubs are more or less in the same boat . I fully agree with the new ruling. "

"Funny I don't hear John Henry or his ilk calling for similar legislative restrictions in financial markets. Is baseball subject to such restrictions? "

"From what i am reading this ffp will only make the gap between manure and the rest even bigger as they are streets ahead of everyone else in terms of making a profit"

"TBH FSG have improved the finances of the club and people are forgetting that, despite the perceived lack of investment in recent years. Lucrative sponsorship deals and no more debt (except the lease on Stanley Park), has put us on a firm financial footing to build on."

"poorscousertommies: why do you make comments about something you have no idea about. There is not a salary cap in baseball like their is in all the other American sports. There is something called the "Luxury Tax". Where if a team spends more then a certain predetermined amount, the will get charged a tax by the league. "

"So now those who doubted FSG intentions should surely realize that now football is a business and has to be run like a business they did the right thing in clearing debts, steadying the ship and making incremental investments in players. You cannot carry on with mega debts as a business and ignore it we are in a better place than previously "

"I wish i could be as happy as Slooby and Annealred. I see Liverpool 26 points behind Man Utd. I Everton and now Swansea above Liverpool. Manchester is out of site Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal won. You can keep what FSG have done as for me they have done nothing! How much have you guys spent on tickets and the rest?"

"I am just looking at Rangers Languishing in the 3rd tier of the SPL. Do we want the same for LFC if we are not finacially secure. A lot of teams in the premiership will be in trouble if and when the the new rules come into force. If The Russisn decides he has had enough of his toy Chelski where does it leave them? "

"Tobehonest. I have spent a lot on tickets having been to every home game, all cup games and some youth games so yes I have given FSG quite lot of my well earned cash but Rome wasn't built in a day and patience is called for. I understand what yore saying but I cannot give up at this stage. It's not in my blood which is all red!!! yNWA"

"Annealred who said anything about giving up red blood or even hope in your heart? Agreed Rome wasn't built in a day but Liverpool FC and those paying out their good money deserve better than the current position! Enjoy...."

"Tobehonest. Agreed. Our position deffo needs to improve. I am not happy with that and even less happy with blue nose colleagues in work reminding me of that. I am hoping for a strong finish to the season and look forward to cotinbo playing on Monday if only for a short appearance. I agree sometimes when I look at our position it is difficult to accept.

"ToBeHonest The le sadly will go to Bacon face for another year but it just goes to show no matter how much money you spend on players like Man City and Chelski have the le is earnt by Hard graft and the right players which is what we are trying to do.Mistakes were made apart from Luis when FSG did spend the money earnt from the sale of Torres and Mireless.CONTD "

"FSG got their fingures burnt in the previous Jan 2012 transfer window and weren't going to make the same mistake again. We now have the bases for a good squad with some additions this summer and we will actually challenge for the le and not 4th Spot.Money wisely spent and not on primadona players will see sustained sucsess and not just one season wonders(Man City)."

"LFC1958. Agreed some wise purchases in the summer deffo. No prima donnas They cost more and sometimes offer little. As I said before the finances are sorted. Rome wasn't built in a day we now have the basis of a good future. Ston should have had a pen just now!!! YNWA"

"Wage limits- Whats to stop city/utd/chelsea paying an upfront fee to the player in lieu of actual wages? A signing-on fee thats twice what it should be for lower wages so they abide by the FFP? "

"Do 'losses' include 'debt'(such as utds)? I'm going to take a punt and say 'no', which means with their profits FFP will be hugely benefical to them!"

"FFP is a great idea, but implementing it how UEFA and the FA want to do it, will alienate smaller clubs ever being able to compete. This rule will only benefit the big clubs and make the divide from the top to the bottom even bigger. Plus if say a Reading were to get a sheikh mansour, it would not matter because there revenue would never allow them to buy from the top of the tree."

"All we ask for is a level playing field where all clubs can compete with the same rules. FFP goes some way towards this."

"Premier League cost controls - introduced to stop the television money being used to fund player wages - could lead to higher ticket prices. These curbs only apply to television income however, which has led to fears that clubs could raise ticket prices in order to fund increases in their wage bills. (BBC)"
