Thing is though, what becomes the punishment for owners who fail to uphold their end of the bargain? League expulsion? Thatís essentially whatís happened with Bury.
The only way that things can be changed is if the league or the FA has final say on all club sales, something which Iím fairly sure would require a some kind of change in company law.
Football clubs as they are currently are private businesses and have owners that can buy or sell them whenever and to whoever they want. The league, as far as I know, have no legal recourse to prevent a sale, just to say whether or not that club can play in said league.
This goes far beyond just the FA or the League introducing new regulations.
