'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ipswich Chief Evans Thwarted by Premier League

Ipswich Town owner Marcus Evans' plans to have a wage cap introduced by the Championship have bee suppered by the Premier League.

In an attempt to create a level playing field, Evans proposed that clubs relegated from the top flight, who will already get a parachute payment of 59m, should have their wage spend capped at 16m for the first year, dropping to 10m and then 8m in te third year.

Crystal Palace suggested an alternative proposal which would mean relegated clubs wouldn`t receive their share of TV income from the Football League - estimated at around 2m.

But an e-mail sent by PL chairman Richard Scudamore threatened the Football league with a total withdrawal of their contribution of solidarity payment of around 2.3m to Championship clubs and that was enough for the meeting in Walsall to end in a no-vote for Evans and Palace.
