Have I missed anything?
clubs that can should pile in money now as the 'size' of club you are financially will be effectively locked in with only profit annually permitted as growth - ie 'scale changes' will be very difficult. We shouldnt come out of this too badly tbh. But for example, its unlikely that say Leeds would ever be a major force again.
An achilles heel in this is sponsorship deals that are actually hidden investment. Not really been addressed.
