  1. That is amazing work from Ashton-£2m!
  2. Looks like Villa did a derby and sold their stadium to circumvent FFP: really disappointing that clubs are doing this-We are competing with parachute payments and dirty tactics (not to mention refs being against us!)
  3. It’s all about wages! As mentioned transfer fees are amortised over length of contract but wages are in the FFP immediately in full! So if we did spend say £30m on 5 top quality players, their wages will be £30k per week which would cost £24m over the 3 year FFP period alone! Given our underlying losses are circa £15m per year (at least) and you are allowed to lose £13m a year then even with the recent sales we can’t afford to push the boat out too much! That said I reckon we have 2 marquee signings, 3 team improvers and 3 squad improvers in us at this point, with more if we sell COD or trade others..exciting summer ahead!
  4. Imagine we would accept his book value. Assuming he was on a 4 year contract that is £2.5m..
  5. Given how poor in the final 3rd we have been I have a feeling that we will totally revamp our front line. Can see Taylor and Diedhou both going and replaced with two real quality strikers (assombalonga, vydra, etc)
  6. Really appreciate being able to watch him strut his stuff, have never seen a city defender so aware of space and so assured with snuffing out attack’s. My other two favourite city defenders were Taylor and flint who had the same combative/Ariel qualities but this guy is streets ahead in terms of class-I imagine it’s what bobby Moore was like!
  7. We are pretty solid at the back so it’s not all bad. Let’s see what January brings then if no improvement he’s toast in the summer imo
  8. Does he choose the players we sign or if it the scouting team/Ashton?
  9. Think people need a bit of perspective and stop wetting the bed! Yes it’s not been a great 2018 but we are still a competitive championship team, with a promising youth set up and infrastructure that’s improving all the time! You would think we were in league 2 with some of these doom and gloom posts!
  10. He hasn’t lost the dressing room. We seem to have gone backwards but let’s give him jan and see if we can get some cutting edge back!
  11. Ha no doubt a group of bed wetters wearing stone island...proper nawty
  12. They still need to make significant cuts to avoid breaching FFP. The new investment only helps with cash flow issues so you won’t see them spending much cash
