Fulham - How Are Cardiff Getting Away With It?

Fulham - How Are Cardiff Getting Away With It?

Now this may seem like a case of sour grapes but I can assure you it is not!

It is in fact a plea for an understanding into how Cardiff City can, apparently, pull a fast one when it comes to financial irregularities.

Announcing that they had signed Craig Bellamy on a season long loan yesterday, thereby ending our hopes of getting the player, it turns put that they`ll be paying (if the papers are correct) half of his salary with Manchester City paying the other half.

Now you might feel that Cardiff have done a decent deal when you consider that Manchester City will still have to pay approximately £1.5 million for a player who will not wear their colours this season.

That is until you work out that Cardiff City will also be paying out a similar amount!

Now the reason I point this out is that whilst Cardiff may be giving themselves a pat on the back today, spare a thought for Motherwell.

The Scottish club are having to take possible legal action against Cardiff to get a transfer payment Cardiff owe them for one of their players.

It`s a financial mess and it make me eternally grateful that our club operates on a sensible financial basis thereby not allowing themselves to be left wide open for the old nudge-nudge-wink-wink brigade to fling some mud in their way!

Too many loopholes. Too much agent influence. Wages inflated. Transfer fees inflated. Clubs operating with prolific debt. Yeh, what could go wrong with this situation?!?
