I'm generalising with no context or background information. But Mr Starmes ought  to be flogging personal goal seminars.

Stfc- Fucked whilst he was here.

Yeovil. Well fucked

Rovers. Jesus wept.

The man has trousered millions by being the kiss of death. That is a talent

TBF to Starnes, I suspect he's trousered more in the order of 10s of thousands, he's no Peter Ridsdale.

No, he left in 2018 to go to Rovers.

Was told years back about the Wael family from my mate who works at Rovers, been a timebomb waiting to happen. He doesn't has a brass farthing in real money.

The "newly minted" Rovers is not as it seems, the new owners are in it for ground redevelopment and not investing in the team, they have given Clarke no funds for new signings because they do not have ready cash as they are property investors.

Rovers will have no more money than we have for new signings this summer and Clarke has been told to trim is squad.

But the injection of money at board level, paying off Rovers debts in the process, seemed to give them the impetus for a winning run towards the end of the season which gained them promotion, the feel good factor as it were pushing the fans and players on to 10 wins in 13 matches.

Not sure which thread this is best suited to but Alan Nixon tweeting this morning:

"Premier League. Being asked to give 200m to EFL. 10m per club. That’s 6.6m per Championship club. 1m each for League One. 666k for League Two. One off money. Issues over those with parachute payments. And Prem want ‘something back’ out of it. Big big issue.

So will Power the club get £1m or £660,000? Asking for a friend who’s thinking of leaving the country in a bit of a hurry.

No real reason why the split should be that far apart. A fairer split per club would be something like  £4.8m(Champ), £2.4m(L1), £1.2m(L2) or even award in order of finishing position (once squabbling in L1 has been sorted) something like;

Champ
£6.15m (+£200k Bonus for Champions)
-
£3.85m
(red. of £100k per place to 24th)

L1
£3.7m (+£100k Bonus for Champions)
-
£1.5m
(red. of £100k per place to 23rd)

L2
£1.4m (+£100k Bonus for Champions)
-
£250k
(red. of £50k per place to 24th)

This might encourage more clubs in the EFL to finish the season as it stands and secure a little more future for those clubs in uncertainty (a fair bunch it seems).
