World Cup Spread Betting – Get Your Football Clubs in Order

Tough new guidelines from UEFA will make clubs operate within their means from the start of the 2012/13 season. The move is set to bring more discipline to club finances and also take the pressure off player’s wages and transfers fees. Clubs will have to compete within their revenue. UEFA believes it will encourage investment in infrastructure, sport facilities and youth academies. It also believes it will help the clubs to sustain themselves in the long term and settle their liabilities in the good time.

The break even clause is a new departure for UEFA whereby the clubs will be monitored for 3 years. They will not be allowed to spend more than they earn from revenue give or take 5 million. They will be able to spend what they like on their stadiums, training facilities, youth academy and their communities.

The huge investments of billionaire owners will be severely cut though. Over the 3 seasons they will only be able to put in 45 million euro over the break even point to help pay wages and transfer fees. This means that if the clubs owners want to go and buy their way into the Champions League they can’t. Sounds good in principle to stop the big clubs splashing the cash but it also stops the smaller clubs like Fulham who have a mega rich owner. They won’t be able to spend anymore of Al Fayeds money above the 45 million euro, the same amount as Mr Abramovich down the road at Chelsea. So suddenly it’s not so fair anymore as Fulham wouldn’t have the same revenue stream as Chelsea or the ways of increasing it either.

At the moment most of the Premier league clubs are alright. But Aston Villa, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool would all set alarm bells ringing at UEFA with the huge losses they are incurring. It seems the huge debts some of the big clubs are holding won’t be taken into account at the moment. The system will only be used as monitoring tool for the moment and clubs won’t be banned from UEFA competitions. They would first be warned and put under review before been banned.

Another part of the clause states that clubs will not be able to owe money to rivals, players, staff or tax authorities at the end of the season. They’re hoping to avoid what happened at Portsmouth who went into administration owing millions in transfer fees, tax and VAT to name a few. I think I read somewhere yesterday that they had offered to pay their creditors 20% of what they owed them. A recent report on European clubs said that 50% of them where making a loss and that 20% where in serious financial danger.

Around the English Premier League – Round 26

The Citizens keep holding on the leadership, but not yet safe from the imminent danger that represents Manchester United; while Arsenal recovers very well from the Champions League's 4-0 defeat.
By Camilla Mancini

For this round all the changes of the standings where left for the lower half clubs, for the top 10 remain in the same positions. The most relevant change is from the relegation zone, from which the Wolves managed to escape one more time and to replace them in the 18th spot left Blackburn. The Rovers had no chance on Saturday against a Manchester City, which made its rival forget how they defeated United in the last visit they made to the city of Manchester. Instead the Citizens took control from the very beginning of the meeting and with the help of its three top scorers blasted whatever hopes the Rovers had. The Red Devils played until the next day and knowing that they had to achieve the triumph to not open up more the gap in between them and City, scored a last-minute goal.

So Manchester City hosted Blackburn and as mentioned before, left them goalless almost repeating the result from their 1st leg fixture, when the Sky Blues smashed the Rovers with a 4-0 that also included a goal from Balotelli. On Saturday it was Mario Balotelli the first one to get in the score sheet at 30 '; for the rest of first half although City controlled the ball couldn't convert another. Seven minutes after the restart Sergio Agüero score the second and within ten minutes from the end Edin Dzeko grabbed a pass from Kolarov and headed into Paul Robinson's goal. Including the three goals from Saturday, Roberto Mancini's leading strikers have given the squad 39 goals in the Premier season, in fact is the only club that has more than one player with 10 or more goals. The victory has left City with 63pts, still followed by United with 2 points less.

Meanwhile Tottenham continues with 53pts and now has the Gunners 3 points closer, with 46pts thanks to the surprising defeat at Emirates Stadium. Arsenal welcomed the Spurs to their London derby with its heavy artillery preparing to riddle them. Although the visitors started very well grabbing a double lead within the first 34 minutes, with an early goal from Louis Saha and a penalty charged by Emmanuel Adebayor, the Gunners just raised in power and started the bombardment.

Five minutes before the break the first goal was headed by Bacary Sagna -his first goal in 10 matches- and just 3 minutes later the 28-year-old captain, Robin Van Persie, even-up the scoreboard with an outstanding strike. At the return from the interval the midfielder Tomas Rosicky scored his first goal of the season; and just like that Arsenal was leading the game. Around ten minutes passed with both clubs looking for their next goal, but the openings were just for the Gunners, specifically just for Theo Walcott, who scored twice. At 65 'Walcott scored the fourth mark with help of his captain and the fifth after just 3 minutes with assistance from Alex Song. As if it wouldn't have been enough the beat-up the Spurs got, they also got Scott Parker sent-off by the referee when he received a second yellow card at the 87 '. The other matches from round 26: Wigan 0-0 Aston Villa; West Brom 4-0 Sunderland; QPR 0-1 Fulham; Newcastle 2-2 Wolves; Chelsea 3-0 Bolton; Norwich 1-2 Man. United; Stoke 2-0 Swansea.
