I don’t know if FGR have approached him or whether he approached them - but either way, it certainly gives of the vibes he *might* have been interested in coming here.

Obviously this is the bit where someone puts me in my place by knowing exactly what FGR will be paying Ferguson, what their budget is and how it compares to ours.

They produce financial accounts.  While you cannot use that to determine any individual salary, you can see they were ploughing cash into the business via "sponsorship" to a level well beyond most if not all L2 clubs.

Max 50k per home game is £1.15m 22 players on £2k per week is £2.2m plus all the other expenses of running the club. Bare in mind not everyone of the 2500 fans are going to be paying £20 per game.

Which was my point - the accounts clearly show Ecotricity/Vince sending a wad their way each season to underpin the wage bill.

Agreed but you’ve taken the time to look at the accounts. Plenty wouldn’t.

I got irritated by a LinkedIn post by their CEO or some other important position congratulating themselves on their successes.  I took a gander and replied to him once the financials confirmed their Commercial success was Daddy.

Bielsa doesn't do mid-season. Everton wanted to appoint him and he said he'd sign, but manage the U23s until EOS and then take over the first team, which is a funny idea if nothing else.

How about Jody Morris?


What if this is all a tactical/strategic process?*  Wink

Everyone in relevant footy circles know that the Leeds dude is about to get the chop.
Swindon shrewdly sign Morris with a caveat of 'Leeds get first refusal at this stage'.

Morris gets "headhunted" by Leeds and publicly state he's the '...man we always wanted!'  or some bollocks.

Town get hefty compo for Morris.

Meanwhile Artell has been told this is the cunning plan (Baldrick) all along.
Town announce Artell.

Cue meltdown from STFC Facebook Fan page(s) whilst SdM counts out the compo like some Urban King - filling a money gun with one dollar bills, making it rain as Clem looks on with a shy chuckle.






*Disclaimer: If anyone thinks I'm being serious...please. It's purely a bit of light humour. Which seems to have escaped the TEF a lot in recent years
