More about the line below when coupled with the £10.6m loss, as opposed to the (still less of a loss than 1982 ltd) £10.6m.


And as with the 82's they have a chairman who covers the losses. Was this not exactly what we were doing 2 yesrs ago?

It was, but not to the same extent.  It made a good deal of us uncomfortable as well.

Its typical of football that 'only' losing 10m instead of 15m is seen as a good thing.  Such a nonsense this sport.  Ive said it before, someone significant needs to go down to wake up this ridiculous business.

Haven't Leeds, Portsmouth etc done so already without anything substantial changing (except arguably FFP)?

Don't think there is anything to make clubs think twice about doing it at present. None of the financial schemes are having an effect and clubs are happy taking the risk and the potential penalties.

I reckon the best chance is other clubs looking at what we're doing, what can be achieved and copying. One day people like Lansdown will start asking the question of why he's blowing £10m a season when a club that is close to breaking even on smaller attendances is ahead of them in the league.

The more clubs that use the loan system (and the number of loan players allowed being increased) and refuse to pay ridiculous salaries to players outside the PL, the more wages will come down, the more clubs will start breaking even.

And maybe, just maybe, a few more young English players will make their way through to the highest level.

One of the bigger clubs will implode soon and that will be a massive wake up call to clubs carrying these debts and hopefully stop this vast overspending madness.

Hopefully starting with Bolton, or at least Gartside.

Martin Ųdegaard will be earning £80k a week apparently. Way way too much for a 16 year old!

Hope he is managed well.

He's Norwegian, that's pocket money to him.

I read that his father has been offered a coaching role at Real so sure he'll be guided well by both his father and Zizou

I think this has been lost in translation. I saw a few reports of this 80k a week first thing this morning and have since removed this.
I really can't see he would be on 80k.

Crowd trouble at Ghana/Equatorial Guinea game right now. No need for it at all. Commentators saying EG fans have left the stadium to ambush the Ghana fans.
