I'd be amazed if on day 1 the plan said:

More of a framework really.
FFP teeth have clearly changed the landscape somewhat.
Given those constraints we might be entering an era where the most important signings are the 5 loanees and champ clubs simply can't afford to buy anyone for substantial money.
Rest of team made up of cheaper foreign gems and the yoof.
In theory it should tip things more in our favour. But may also mean that parachute payment clubs have an even greater advantage.
Gonna be interesting
