It appears that much of the economy might move towards this kind of structure. The Spanish banks have to put money aside during good times to help them through bad, for example, I think football teams having to cap wages or save in good times is a good development too. It will help sustain teams, if they go bust it’s the communities that suffer.

EU competition law may be the ultimate sticking point and the freedom of movement of labour and capital. If a club wants to bankrupt itself by buying and playing or indeed put all its eggs (and its supporters eggs) in one bastket, then under EU law it should be allowed to do so.
One avenue might be to make directors legally responsible to act with a fiduciary duty to shareholders, fans and the league. ie force them to only make decisions which would not damage the club nor the league in which it plays

Personally I would like to see a salary and transfer fee cap – for moral reasons if nothing else. Although I am realistic enough to know it will probably never see the light of day.
