  1. The club loses money; it’s the only thing we do consistently. SL covers those financial losses, as any other owner would need to do. That’s the starting point for our business plan. I think we have a new direction, and I don’t mean downwards. For the first time in a long time we have an experienced football person in charge and restructuring the club. It will take time and patience. There will be bumps in the road. January is important in my opinion. Can we wheel and deal to improve the squad and move some players on? We all want improvement on the pitch, let’s all get behind the club.
  2. Out of curiosity, what would you do differently?
  3. The model works if you develop the young players. That requires competitive football because there is only so much development that you can achieve on the training ground. After we sold Webster we brought in too many young players, far more than we could develop on the pitch and as a result the model failed. Hopefully with Scott, Atkinson and Tanner, and to some degree COD we are now resetting our approach and giving them league minutes. If we sell players in Jan or next summer we have the likes of Benarous to come in to the first team.
  4. Alternative take is he does well when given time
  5. If that gillet were lucky….
  6. My conclusion was based on your assessment work Dave. There are definitely challenging times ahead, for the club to communicate those financial constraints and supporters to be understanding when it appears we are selling off our best players. If there are permitted covid exceptions, other clubs will also benefit from them so it doesn’t help us much by comparison.
  7. The worrying thing is we may already be in breach of FFP once the 18/19 profit falls outside the three year period, and we may need to sell some assets such as Bentley or Massengo and not be able to replace them. Meanwhile Kalas is showing off his new Lamborghini Urus.
  8. A cynic would suggest the authorities wanted to protect prem teams during covid but also to ensure Sarries could get back in. There are 13 teams in the prem this season as a result.
  9. Just saw the trailer for Scream 5, which looks a throwback
  10. Maybe they should take all the icebergs out of the ocean too, or melt them
  11. Not many positives so far this season. We look well off where we were. At least there’s no relegation

  13. Good luck with that. Not many trains stop there. There used to be a shuttle bus from Cov station to the ground on match days which worked well. Not sure if it is back up and running post covid.
