    “All football clubs are the same. Give them £10 and they will spend £11. Give them £10m and they will spend £11m”. Ian, I have two words for you: SALARY CAP!!! I think some restrictions in wages coupled with revenue sharing would help the financial situation in the Football League. These two factors have been the keystones for financial statability for American sports leagues.

    Thought you might be interested in this - it’s appeared on the Torquay United forum’s google ads a few times and appears to be a genuine attempt to sell a non-league club. Any idea which?

    Chris: That’s Boreham Wood, of the Ryman League Premier Division. I’d have guessed that their ground, Meadow Park, is worth more than the asking price on its own, but there’s probably a covenant slapped on it, preventing it from being used for anything other than recreational purposes.
