Milwall owner unsure if Financial Fair Play rules will change

JOHN Beryslon says Millwall cannot afford to exceed Financial Fair Play regulations in the hope that the rules will be changed in the future.

The Lions are right on the limit of what they are allowed to spend each year – and are likely to be hit with a transfer embargo in January 2016, when the restrictions get even tighter.

Championship clubs are widely-expected to revise the boundaries of FFP at some point but an agreement on what changes to make could not be reached in the summer.

This December, teams will submit their financial reports for last season and those posting losses of more than £8million will, under the rules, be subject to a transfer embargo.

Up to five clubs are expected to be banned from signing players. For the time being, Millwall will comply.

But the FFP threshold will drop to £6m next year. It is projected that the Lions losses for the current campaign will leave them generic lexapro better vulnerable to disciplinary action.

Chairman Berylson, whose investment in the Lions now stands at around £33million, says he is unable to significantly increase Ian Holloway's budget.

He explained: "We are at the limits of FFP and I don't know if the rules are going to change in the future.

"If you talk to other clubs, some of them like these restrictions. Personally I've always been in favour of a salary cap."

Beryslon has been recovering at home in Boston after undergoing knee surgery last month. But he has watched all of Millwall's recent matches via a video feed.

"I'm hoping that keeping Derby scoreless has been a bit of a turning point," he added.

"I thought the team played really well and Ian Holloway's idea of playing other people and mixing it up paid off.

"Some of these young players, like Aiden O’Brien, are our future.

"We have been taking two steps forward and one step back so far this season but I didn't expect anything different."

    Seems like it should be known as financial unfair play to me.
    The more I look at it the more it seems to hit the poorest clubs harder, making it nigh on impossible to progress. Probably exactly what the powers that be want to protect their elite kingdom.

      @wall2wall: F*** Fifa nothing but a bunch of bent bstards imo. Man city and PSG are running at a ridiculous loss and just pay the £50m fine and get on with signing £30m + players whilst the small clubs get relegated lose there stadiums and even fold. F*** Blatter F*** Platini UP THE WALL!!!

    I've got to agree..the investment stoppage(which is really what it is)..falls well short of league like the championship...do these idiots know in real terms what one of these clubs need to make there club competitive(obsviously not)..i have always said like jb that a pay cap is the right way to go...how many players would have chose to work with olly with the same pay as say brentford or rotherham...its a stupid rule... but it was voted in by the people who run our clubs.cos they said at the time it would benifit all clubs...so you cant really whinge now

    The whole governance of football is at best a shambles at worst a corrupt payola.
    From FIFA down the whole thing needs dismantling, FFP is b*******, a clever scheme to ensure that those at the top stay there, parachute payments and the ability to dodge any consequences by promotion to the PL ensure the miscreants avoid sanction.

    Of course salary cap is the only option but the cesspit of fixers don't want that, it's too transparent!

    All overseen by the Football Association the so called guardians of the national game, that's a joke, they are a joke and guess what?
    The jokes on the mugs clicking through the turnstile

    Wait for the penalties to start being enforced, then we will be glad that we complied or tried to comply. This is the right way to run the club, overspending and hoping for a rule change is extremely dangerous and would be poor management. Other clubs are dong that and as long as we are able to stay up, we will benefit when those clubs start getting penalised.

      @glyngo: We are basically treading water till the current contracts are up for renewal, then we can get rid of the rubbish and rebuild the squad. this season was NEVER going to be one where we bought loads and signed bigger names.

      @harry2310: absolutely this stinks. Typical Millwall playing to the rules because we just know they'd love to throw the book at us. COYL we can do this on our own. F*** em all.

    A transfer embargo wont hurt us cause we never sign anyone anyway.
