 What I don't like about Bormuff, is that we should be playing them.  Always been a good away day... a regular traditional opponent. Now we're reduced to Cheltnum, FGR, and Yeovil, not the same. I would like to see a win at Whaddon Road, mind.

When they were in the Champ & 'spending their way to glory' I would bet they still spent a heck of a lot less than the majority of other teams in the division at that time. Granted their spend v turnover would have been completely disproportionate but so would ours have been under PDC in League 2 & the following season where we would probably have gone up if he'd stayed. It's all relative. Good luck to them. It's hardly the fans fault. We'd be fucking loving it if it was us.  

The season they got promoted from the Championship they lost over £40 million.

Howe is a very good manager who has done a great job there, plenty of other teams have spent loads without getting to where Bournemouth have. Actually his greatest achievement there was probably keeping them up in League 2 when they had a big points deduction.

It's has always been the case though that the whole thing is only sustainable as long as the owner continues to bankroll the club. If he pulls out they will be heading back down the leagues in a hurry.

Which begs the question why in the current PL era and the 28th richest club in Europe (apparently) can't afford to move forward with a new stadium or pay down some of their long term debt.

You would think they might be hitting a high water mark in their history and they just want to sustain PL status now. When clubs think like that relegation eventuallycatches up with them.

Will be interesting to see if that happens do they go down the Burnley route and rebuild or a Pompey/Sunderland slide.

Indeed. This is the problem with the Premier League simply handing over £100 million plus to each club to spend it how they want. Everyone ends up spending it on transfer fees and wages because they assume everyone else will and if they are the odd ones out they wont be able to compete.

If would make more sense to give each club £50 million each (still way more than most clubs in the world) and make the other £1 billion per season available only for infrastructure (stadium / training ground etc...) ideally this would be available to all clubs not just PL.

You'd end up with much the same players, just on less ridiculous wages, and there would be tangible assets to show for the billions going into the game instead of the money just passing straight through.

This is one reason why the sale of Wembley is such a nonsense. There is more than enough money in the game to fund the grass roots by more than £600 million every season not just once. It just needs a proper structure in place to do it.

Will never happen though, obviously Sad

Boscombe got lucky. We didn't.

Their manager has done very well but has a strange fixed rictus grin that is a bit disconcerting.

Look forward to competing with them again at L1 & L2 level in the future.

Fair one. I suppose if the boot was on our foot though and moved us to somewhere nice like the M5, like Stroud...I guess we'd probs be a bitter too.  Smiley

I don't think you can blame AFC Wimbledon for wanting to have their own ground. A rather flippant response. If you want to blame anyone, blame the Khosla Family (who took all the ground lease money c£2.5m) or even Chelsea for not facilitating them. AFC at least gave them £1m to look for other options. That was a massive amount of money for Kingstonian. Didn't the Kingstonian chairman also say they'd provide free travel for fans while they played at Leatherhead?

The agreement was always AFC would play there until they found their own home. As I said, blame the Khosla for pocketing the Wimbledon lease money and Chelsea for refusing facilitation to stay.
