    You advocate tighter regulation by the EFL. One of the many issues I have with the fundamentals of regulation by the EFL, EPL and UEFA is that its objectives are muddled from the outset. Is regulation needed to stop clubs living beyond their means or to stop rich clubs living up to the standard they most certainly can afford? Likewise, as far as I can see, the “fit and proper person” test is riven with contradictions . Is it intended to exclude criminals and those whose wealth is of undefined or dubious provenance? or simply people who don’t appear to have the required resources (however the requisite level is defined)? When owners take money out, they are “asset stripping”, but when they simply plough money in, their largesse is said to be wrecking football, they need to be restrained, the club is just “a rich man’s plaything” etc etc
