It's probably a good move in terms of protecting teams from overly ambitious and careless owners, but will widen the gap between the Championship and L1 massively.

My thinking is it'll be seen as a failure because of things like this. It'll be written of as impossible to work in football, but that's nonsense. It works well elsewhere; but it needs to be taken up by the majority of leagues for it to have a chance.

Salary caps would be good at the top level of football to restore some parity. Probably be difficult to implement, especially with how corrupt UEFA/FIFA are.

NFL use salary caps do they not? They still manage to give out absolutely mental deals though

They can only give silly money to a set amount of players though because of the cap, so the talent is spread around the teams.

It's a lot easier to implement over there because of how centralised the leagues are and the relative lack of teams.

It's going to be difficult to manage that like. You can't reasonably ask a relegated team to bin half their staff to fit an arbitrary wage cap, but putting any sort of time cushion on it, say a 33% reduction for three years, will mean teams would just take their chances and in most cases romp the diddy league in their first season back down.
