I'm glad this is being talked about. It's the best way to achieve parity in football.

I agree, It's needed for the sake of the sport, unfortunately it will be very difficult to get it up and running with the already huge gap in wages between clubs.

The big clubs would fight any new proposals and if they all grouped together then I don't see how they can be stopped but if new regulations could be enforced then its only going to help the game.

That's the problem, the G14 group of the biggest clubs in Europe will fight a proposal like that to the death, because you take away their economic advantage.
It's a shame, because salary caps have been a great success in the U.S.

That's the best thing they could do to football.

No need to. RM launched the idea a couple of years ago though not very full hearted, maybe... For example, RM would have been very glad if they were able to say Casillas "Sorry dude, we cannot pay you 9 mill a year because of salary cap. We can offer 6 max." Casillas could ask now for 9 mill because there's no salary cap and Florentino could not accept the "emotional loss" for RM (supporters would have chased him and killed him ). The emotional part plays a big role in football and it's very easy to see ppl like Helguera, Caparrós, Coloccini, Juanma, Hector, etc. accepting to see their salaries reduced in order to play in a team they like.

It's not going to be that easy, Zepp, it's still going to screw them. They would have to do a lot more careful planning before going after a new galactico. They'd have to either get someone existing to lower their wages or to sell them (which will be much harder to do other teams having their caps full). Those being sold won't want to go to lower profile clubs who have space for them.

The question is that if you see what RM has been doing, they are paying less for every "galactico" they are buying... Paid 60 for Figo, 72 for Zidane and then Ronaldo 35, Beckham 25, Owen 12, Robinho 24... And now Ballack can come for free! And they are paying lower wages too (Robinho earns just 2 mill gross). Everyone wants to play for RM.

But of course, they need more planning and specially, allowing the coaches and managers to do their job. But hey, I won't say that too loud... I prefer them doing this
