Snakey / GY, I presumed (rightly or wrongly) that GY was thinking of a house away from the stadium. I suspect I am overly pessimistic on the financial aspects of this.
I shall give some consideration to the other idea of the Leyton Orient-esque flats.
Back later.... :)

Thanks GY for a reasonable reply, as you say, we can have different opinions.

GY - your idea last year that the club should buy a house for the players to rent was a sweet idea. It all sounded very nice, the players have somewhere to live, the club gets rent to pay the mortgage and the asset goes up in value in the long term. Unfortunately, the numbers don't add up, and when ...

wasn't one of the points in the powerpoint presentation that income was down £118K or so as there was no &quotbig&quot pre-season game this year (last year). If Jim brings one of those in that is surely useful.

Re:

Looking at TNS website, they have only 50 scouts worldwide. Whilst I would guess that the majority are in the UK, that wouldn't provide enough cover for each League and Premier game on a Saturday. So, unless OUFC have contracted TNS to look solely at OUFC opponents, which doesn't apear to be a serv...

come on GY, make your mind up. Only one week ago you were saying
&quot8. Do we need/can we afford so many backroom staff?&quot

The club is presumably looking to cut costs across the board, on player costs to back-room, to admin.

I don't understand HAT and DASBOOT on here, an explanation for simpletons like me would help. What are they on about? Why are they called what they are called? All a bit clique-y

It is a strange one, we (in the terrace) call Flynn an onanist all we like without reprise, but one outburst/gesture from the player gets calls for him to be cited. I know the players are supposed to ignore abuse, but he did have a cut, even if it was a "nothing" challenge. Evenso, I am stil...

I must have been stood near the complainer at the time. the steward told me off for taking pictures / video clips with a digital camera. I'm sure there are regulations protecting the official media, but apart from (very occasionally these days) posting up a shaky youtube video of a goal, I don't thi...

back to the debenture point. I would say it is quite likely the people preparing the accounts for WPL forgot to disclose them - the fee is relatively low, only two shareholders and it is the first year of accounts which increases the risk of missing a few disclosures. Putting the numbers together is...

I was having another think about this yesterday. I did wonder if the loans might be classified differently if they had different terms. eg investors loans are at one rate / repayment terms and directors loans are at a different rate. so the investor loan could actually be 50:50 and the director loan...

I thought Yemi was much improved yesterday - a brilliant effort. Ran his legs off and so much more inspired.
