Re: You're winding me up!

Dannie Bulman is still playing some nine years later at 40, and scored a cracker for Crawley which is nominated for L2 goal of the month.

Re: Chris Wilder

CNEMWO OK I give up. Back in the day of Rage On as a physical fanzine you could buy with money, there was a running joke about Denis "Next England Manager" Smith (Out), aka DNEMSO, lampooning both his claims that he had once been under consideration for the national job and also how far he'd fallen...

Re: You're winding me up!

Also for Tiger to make a quick buck if it is Thohir taking over, means Thohir would have to pay a significant amount of money just for the club, as there would be the cost of what Tiger bought the club for, plus what has had to be spent running the club since then (if of course that wasn't coming fr...

Re: You're winding me up!

Though I have to wonder if we are just going down the same loop of club and stadium being separated again, with owner keeping all the ancillaries leaving the club without all the key non-ticket income? Also as the club is losing so much money, how long is this sustainable?

Re: Safety in numbers

The Bristol Post did a feature on the rich list for football league clubs. https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/efl-richest-football-owners-villa-2746213 It's staggering how much money is out there, and what is an affordable loss in one year for the richest clubs could probably...

Stretching the topic a bit, but Dave Collins's son Nathan is now playing for Stoke City at just 17.

Re: Safety in numbers

The bigger question is what on earth is Tiger's plan for the club? There was talk earlier in the season of identifying five alternative stadium sites, but that all seems to have gone quiet. There are two wealthy directors in Bakrie and Thohir who don't appear to have any share in the Singapore holdi...

Re: Where are they now?

Jonathan Mitchell (Loanee GK this season) has a key role to play at Shrewsbury. Hopefully not at our expense!

Re: WhyCom-plain

I can't find one of those league tables which shows how well we did against top teams and bottom teams and obviously we play everyone twice a few months apart. But I wonder how we would feel if we had started with our current form which is top six, and then ended the season dropping down to 12th?

Re: Tiger's Visit

I'm still struggling with that loss. My memories of the 2017/18 season were that Pep was a disaster, and the club seemed to be running on vapours, with various members of staff leaving and not being replaced.

Re: Tiger's Visit

That adjusted £5M is very worrying as an owner needs very deep pockets to fund it year-on-year. For the last 15 years or so the club has muddled along losing under a million a year in the Conference, then under 1.5M a year in L2 under Lenagan. This increased to 2.5M and 1.9M under Eales in L2, presu...

Re: Tiger's Visit

So checking on timings. O'Dowda and Roofe were sold July 2016 so those transfer fees should be income in the 2017 accounts. The 2017 post balance sheet note had net player buys and sells for £3M. Lundstram was sold July 2017 (500k?), Johnson August 2017 (3M?)so those should be in the 2018 accounts. ...

Re: Tiger's Visit

It’s not where the cash ended up , but how a season when there were player sales of 3.5 estimate still ended with a loss of 2.

Perhaps I’ve got my dates wrong and Johnson and Lundstram were sold the year before?

Or maybe Eales took money out as an expense ?

TT any ideas ?
