  1. If there was trouble and they were punished by having to play behind closed doors, would anyone notice? Although not sure how you closed door a ground of tents and portacabins...
  2. One of the worst things about the beyond-satire age we live in is I'm actually unsure if you're joking or not...!
  3. I imagine they'll need to get the pickups and caravans in and do some donuts on that grass... They've been complaining that a decent pitch is screwing them as their players have to actually have skill (and it's why they're so awful away) Couldn't make it up...
  4. There's also one in the thread about their Commercial Director working out the extra income it'll bring in. Firstly he overestimates the number of seats (and assumes they'll all be full) and then assumes they'll all be new supporters rather than fans moving from other parts of the ground. No wonder they're financially screwed...
  5. Maybe not the best move by Cheltenham if finances are tight - without the family connection to loan players from us all the time how are they going to get a full starting 11 together?!
  6. Opposite to much of last season where we'd get ahead by a few then chuck it all away... Maybe the idea is we're trying to save ourselves more in first half but overdoing it at the moment? Hopefully will even out soon
  7. Good spot - not even their new turnstiles do (not sure a pedal counts as automated :laugh:): 8 Turnstiles 8.1 These must be of the automatic revolving type fitted with counting facilities and a computerised turnstile monitoring system.
  8. Agreed - I think if we make the Prem one day I could watch it again then, but not before
  9. I remember watching it in the student bar in Swansea with my local mate supporting us too - I then a few years later had to support Swansea in the final in return. I was very happy for him but couldn't help but wish it had been us... Swansea City since have become a much more valuable club (whereas we were probably about the same size at the time) and it's fed into the area around it - lots of regeneration since then. Even with their relegation they're still with a good chance of going back up - which shows the pot of gold waiting for the winners and why it was so heartbreakin
  10. In addition, the Championship has become a much richer, stronger and more competitive league, particularly due to the balloon payments to the Prem drop outs. To be finishing top half of the table in this league and having gone toe-to-toe with Premier League giants and win or give a good account of ourselves shows just how far we've come...
  11. For a second my mind thought "wow that was a quick season, fingers crossed we win this time!" Then the usual "so close yet so far" memories of being a City fan kicked in
  12. I had a similar thought :laugh: - he probably sits in the budget review each year just going "Look it's fine, just give me the number so I can sign the cheque and get to more interesting stuff" As for the topic at hand - I'm not really that surprised by us making a loss, was more surprised at how much given the cup run, selling players (if any major ones were in before the budget cut off) and the corporate income from the Gate. Good job he's not expecting self-sufficiency any time soon - hopefully not until we reach the Premiership (fingers crossed!)
  13. Nooo my Twitter links never seem to work!
  14. Apologies if already posted before. This was highlighted in yesterday's Post: SL converted another £18.4 million to shares last season, so we don't breach FFP (most likely). Firstly quite amusing the CFO's post (imagine he loves having SL - "Steve we need some money") and secondly I'm shocked we lost so much in such a successful season! Particularly with players sales you'd expect we might actually make a profit, but maybe this is just removing some existing debt? Either way I'm still very, very glad we have SL...
  15. Would be great if the host turned round and said "things take time but you're losing 2 million a year - surely you're nearing the point of no return?" I think he'd fake a heart attack to avoid answering...
