Comparison is after 27 games each unless I’m very much mistaken.

Yes, so they are on course for it currently they’d still have to concede 3 goals a game. Or more accurately 5 goals every 2 games.

From game 27 to 42 we concede an average of 2.6 per game.

That disappoints me. I hoped we’d keep a Prem record.

We'll always be the first! 🥇

Its ok at least this season we made a new FA cup record that will not be beaten in many years, if ever, as the heaviest home defeat to a non league team ever.

I wish someone could explain that game - I still can’t make sense of it. The weirdest thing I’ve ever witnessed - well, 60 minutes of it!

Could be other thread depending on point of view but Reading have flogged their training ground to Wycombe for 22 million quid.

Another example of how far off STFC is but also how fucked Reading are.

He’s asset stripping before he legs it.

How the fuck have Wycombe got £22m?

Because they are well run and have an ownership that make sensible decisions.  They have no doubt made some decent money by rising up the leagues and some decent cup runs without going after the dream.  I have no doubt they probably have some backers that have deeper pockets than an aussie plumber.  Wycombe are in an ideal location, right on the edge of Landan and can fly under the radar whilst steadily doing their thing.

I think Wycombes owners are courting some fella from Georgia to try and buy them. Wonder if this is the first step of him getting involved in the club?

Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me.  If you think about their location they must be a prime candidate for a wealthy purchaser - they are not really too disimilar to a Fulham/Brentford/QPR, albeit not in London and with cheaper rent/taxes.  Must be a tempting club for anyone wishing to purchase one.

Gotta think you get more buying Swindon though, but probably doesn't cost as much. Wycombe was who Bergkamp and co were after.

I would put them at a similar size to Boremuff before the Russian took them over and they started their fairytale rise.

Same size average crowds in L2 and L1, never went above the lower reaches of Div 3 and 4 barring the odd season, small fanbase, no major silverware in their history etc...
