Cortese in spending talks

NICOLA CORTESE

NICOLA CORTESE

First published in Sport

The 20 Premier League chairmen have agreed in principle for clubs to have to break even, despite some opposition at a meeting today.

However the exact details of the spending controls has yet to be agreed - specifically around how much wealthy owners can put into the club to cover losses, sources close to the process have disclosed.

The club chairmen – including Saints’ Nicola Cortese - have now asked PL executives to bring back detailed plans on the spending controls for the next meeting on February 6, and on proposals to cap wage rises for players in the short term.

It is understood Manchester City, Fulham and Aston Villa remained opposed to any controls but approval by only 14 of the 20 clubs is needed for the moves to go through.

We need to stay in the Prem, next season the financial rewards go up by a few more million as the new deal kicks in.

Come on Saints, you can do it, let's get those 3 points against Sunderland on Saturday - I cannot wait!

Wonder who thought it was a silly idea? City's Sheik, Roman and The Manc Yanks, who've re-mortgaged the club to the max, who were the last team to win the Premiership that would actually want to comply with fair play or even be able too giving even their existing wage structure?

A break-even requirement would be good for English football and good for saints. We've suffered and benefitted from lack of wealth, and wealth itself, in equal measure since the 90s. The best time to set sustainability in the sport will be with us near the top.

It shows Cortese's acumen that he supports measures that would have harmed us three seasons ago but helps now.

It also demonstrates that the liebherr estate has already made it clear that it will not fund run on the top for places, which we all knew anyway (but this confirms it for any dreamers out there).

With or with a broad pl deal, we should settle in for a long spell of outgoings matching incoming cash. The offshore loan this season, effectively a bond against known future pl earnings, is evidence of that, too.

A lot better than the Rupert years, when incoming a far exceeded observable spending, and we were bankrupted nonetheless.

The last time this issue was raised Saints were against it, but we were in a lower league then and it probably would have been detrimental to us. It is in the interests of football not to allow huge investment by owners which inflates wages and could turn into debt.

Which just leaves talk of Sanchez moving to the Saints. “Sanchez is slightly below the radar of others such as Falcao, Jackson Martinez and James Rodriguez,” says the Times’ Rory Smith. “Southampton obviously have Gaston Ramirez, so Nigel Adkins is maybe willing to look at South Americans. It’s possible, it’s the right sort of price range. He’s an energetic midfielder and it would make sense, he would probably adapt. I’ll give it a six out of 10.”

This is a matter that simply has to be addressed at some stage. The free market will always allow for billionaire investment in viable clubs (thank god for ML after all)...but they need to be held accountable for their annual accounts and the viable running of their football clubs.

...I think one of the "big" clubs will have to struggle before sanity returns....my money is on Chelski suffering once Mr Abromovic gets bored of the whole deal. Just take a look at Stamford Bridge...it is the same old shed surrounded by fancy brickwork. I can't see any long term future there.

Hello mate, how's things?

I have to say this is the same Cortese who spent £12m on Ramirez and offered to match Arsenals wages in an attempt to persuade Oxo to stay. It is also the same Cortese who is spending £15m on the academy rebuild. So seems you're wrong doesn't it? Are you wrong about the PST too?

Surely a total wage cap (i.e. on the squad of players in aggregate) as a percentage of revenues would disadvantage the smaller clubs. The big clubs' annual income (including sale of merchandise at home and abroad) is many, many times greater than Saints'.

Such a wage bill limit would severely restrict the signing of star players by a club (like Saints) which is trying through investor funds to raise itself to the heights of the top clubs.

What it would lead to, however, on a positive note is the need for owners to invest by way of share capital rather than interest bearing loans. Maybe Cortese is happy with that.

This is one reason why I have argued for the skates to go under. I know they're not - and never where - a 'big' club, but they were a prem club, over spending and helping to create the problem.

I doubt much will change until a 'big' club really does go to the wall. If it had happened while the skates were in the prem or soon after, that might have woken people up. It's probably too late now, but it would still send out some sort of message and, imo, be better for the fans if the current PFC simply died and a new club was born without the soiled legacy.

I guess, before things change, it will now need something similar to happen to a club who are regularly in the top 6. We can but hope.

I replied..." well backin 1880 santa used to wear green, and on the 24th of dec of that year santa, got his reindeers ad began his journey, after leaving lapland ( his home), he ventured thru the world upon arriving in the south of England, a young kid just geting home from chimney sweeping, where his governor gave him for xmas for being a hard worker a potato and a pack of cigarettes ( menthol variety as it was xmas) came upon santa coming down a chimney.
The young boy wearing a saints shirt and santa very impressed with the boy, instantly became a saints supporter, then changing his green colours to red and white.

Saint compo, you are wasting your time trying to discuss anything thing to do with the subject of the article.
This board has been completely ruined by a dozen or so kn0bs who think that their witless comments are of some sort of interest to anyone.
It is now the same names that pop up post after post spouting the same drivel day after day.
If they only realised how boring they all sound.
They'll meet up in the Joshua Tree on Sat to discuss the weeks comments over a couple of pints.
Can imagine that pub on a Saturday full of the echo board dullards. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.


...........
Well, that's contributed to the debate!

Instead of throwing your dummy out the pram, Baz, why not simply ignore those you mention and share your thoughts on the subject - thus, restoring the balance of the thread towards, as you put it, 'discussing something to do with the subject of the article.'
Not sure why you call me Baz, I suppose it must amuse you.
I think one of the other comedians called me it some time ago and you, as usual, followed suit.
Restore the balance??? most posters have left this board because of you lot and your pompey chums.

It might disadvantage the smaller clubs, but it would stop them going into admin. Portsmouth were paying roughly 120% of their turnover on wages in the season they got relegated, then with lower income in the Championship it's no wonder it's turned outlike it has. A cap on basic salary would be a good idea, with bigger bonuses allowed on reaching certain achievments, staying up, scoring etc.
The Premier League is probably the fairest league in Europe as TV money is distributed fairly to each club, whereas in Spain (and they tried it in Italy), it's down to the clubs to organise their own, so Barca and Madrid obviously get a lot more than the other teams.
I might be wrong, but didn't Cortese turn a loan into share capital within the last year? We then had all those rumours that he was getting ready to sell the club.

The smaller clubs like ourselves (with a very large catchment area to grow) will have to have good youth systems in place with strong get out/sell on clauses, then when a gem such as shaw comes along we keep them for longer or sell at massive fee's
Oh look it's the Folkstone F-witt, You spoil us with your morning musings regarding the Saints. Aren’t we lucky! Zzzzzzzzzz. Back into your little hole now!
So brave of you to attack people behind a computer dom-is-a-nonce, do you follow a football team or is being a troll your hobby, if it is the latter you are very sad infact you are sad period, as for the "us" comment you contribute nothing to this forum and are as welcome as thrush so why don't you tidy up your bed-sit then go and get some fresh air

1. So, are Costa Gaz and Costa Baz two different people? As I said a week or two ago, I'm confused. Mixing up Baz and Gaz doesn't amuse me at all, it's an easy mistake to make given the similarity of the names and styles.
2. I very rarely respond to skates or WUMs on here. So, the suggestion (even if true) that 'most posters have left this board because of YOU LOT and YOUR pompey chums' is being directed at the wrong person.

Yes, I do comment on the situation at PFC. I don't like PFC (the club) because of the way it has (mis)conducted its business over the years. That has nothing to do with the rivalry, which I like and which - PFC or no PFC - will continue (with decent banter and, alas, abuse) between Saints fans and Pompey fans.

Now, what about football spending? Do you have an opinion?

With no reason, and completely inaccurately, you call me a liar.
1. I really did (maybe still do) think Gaz and Baz are one and the same Costa.

2. If you can find 20 threads over the past year on which I've responded at least twice to one of the usual WUMs/skates (other than to have a genuine discussion with, say Pompey in Spain or Morning Glory) I'd be amazed.

3. There was no point three, but if what you don't care about is the topic in question then why make your original angry comments?

Maybe the one who posts as Costa Baz isn't you and you're just faking his name to add to your wumongous wumability, I don't know.

I had you down for someone I tended to disagree with and got bored with for constantly pumping out the same negative stuff.

I was obviosuly wrong. So, well done, I've been had, you're just another WUM in disguise and, like scooter and kent, require no further interaction with genuine posters on here.

The big clubs' annual income (including sale of merchandise at home and abroad) is many, many times greater than Saints'. Such a wage bill limit would severely restrict the signing of star players by a club (like Saints) which is trying through investor funds to raise itself to the heights of the top clubs. What it would lead to, however, on a positive note is the need for owners to invest by way of share capital rather than interest bearing loans. Maybe Cortese is happy with that. COYR[/p][/quote]Saint compo, you are wasting your time trying to discuss anything thing to do with the subject of the article. This board has been completely ruined by a dozen or so kn0bs who think that their witless comments are of some sort of interest to anyone. It is now the same names that pop up post after post spouting the same drivel day after day. If they only realised how boring they all sound. They'll meet up in the Joshua Tree on Sat to discuss the weeks comments over a couple of pints. Can imagine that pub on a Saturday full of the echo board dullards. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. ...........[/p][/quote]Well, that's contributed to the debate! Instead of throwing your dummy out the pram, Baz, why not simply ignore those you mention and share your thoughts on the subject - thus, restoring the balance of the thread towards, as you put it, 'discussing something to do with the subject of the article.'[/p][/quote]Not sure why you call me Baz, I suppose it must amuse you. I think one of the other comedians called me it some time ago and you, as usual, followed suit. Restore the balance??? most posters have left this board because of you lot and your pompey chums.[/p][/quote]1. So, are Costa Gaz and Costa Baz two different people? As I said a week or two ago, I'm confused. Mixing up Baz and Gaz doesn't amuse me at all, it's an easy mistake to make given the similarity of the names and styles. 2. I very rarely respond to skates or WUMs on here. So, the suggestion (even if true) that 'most posters have left this board because of YOU LOT and YOUR pompey chums' is being directed at the wrong person. Yes, I do comment on the situation at PFC. I don't like PFC (the club) because of the way it has (mis)conducted its business over the years. That has nothing to do with the rivalry, which I like and which - PFC or no PFC - will continue (with decent banter and, alas, abuse) between Saints fans and Pompey fans. Now, what about football spending? Do you have an opinion?[/p][/quote]Meet you in the josh as usual stras with the rest of the echo boys.[/p][/quote]Point1; Liar Point 2 ; Liar point 3; so what zzzzzzzzzz.....[/p][/quote]With no reason, and completely inaccurately, you call me a liar. 1. I really did (maybe still do) think Gaz and Baz are one and the same Costa. 2. If you can find 20 threads over the past year on which I've responded at least twice to one of the usual WUMs/skates (other than to have a genuine discussion with, say Pompey in Spain or Morning Glory) I'd be amazed. 3. There was no point three, but if what you don't care about is the topic in question then why make your original angry comments? Maybe the one who posts as Costa Baz isn't you and you're just faking his name to add to your wumongous wumability, I don't know.
