Newcastle have bid £1.5m for Dion Sanderson, who Wolves have made available and want £2m.

Seems not a bad price, I thought.

Probably sound in principle but it's a bit like the tail wagging the dog.
"The Fair Game group includes Luton from the second tier, Accrington, AFC Wimbledon, Cambridge and Lincoln in League One and Bristol Rovers, Carlisle, Leyton Orient, Newport and Tranmere in League Two."

Not sure how sound the principle is. Parachute payments are there to allow teams the opportunity to entice a higher calibre of player and be able to keep them for more than one season. It also means the benefits of promotion aren't a flash in the pan. Can any of those sides (Luton aside IF we're being generous) realistically say Parachute payments have had a negative impact on them? They're not in the market for the same calibre of player and even if they were they'd lose without Parachute payments most likely.

Some of the proposals seem reasonable, but I disagree with the abolition of parachute payments. They are suggesting those payments be redistributed to teams lower down but it’s not as if that money is there to be used for whatever reasons league clubs determine, it’s a specific payment for a specific reason. And taking it away is tantamount to making the premier league a closed shop.

At very least it’s going to hit lower league clubs that aspire to top flight football the most. Relatively big clubs like us, Forest, Boro etc would have at least have a chance of being able to get promoted and maintain some level of success. Take parachute payments away and the likes of Luton and Tranmere may as well give up.
