  1. We are fortunate in that this really doesn't matter. What a terrible result though.
  2. That isn't my memory but a check back to the original will always answer the question. I didn't keep my paperwork as there was no CGT implication for selling at the price that I bought.
  3. Disappointing to read. Paul Holland used his position as the boss of struggling Ilkeston Town to pocket £2,000 after he fell on hard times. As a youngster, Holland was capped twice at England U21 level and played alongside the David Beckham and Robbie Fowler. But Derby Magistrates' Court heard Holland, of Toton, near Nottingham, struggled after his playing career ended in 2000. And when he was given the job managing Ilkeston FC he repaid those who tried to help him by siphoning off much-needed funds. https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/880437/England
  4. Primarily in the manner in which he is now seeking to find fresh investment. Instead of simply marketing the club and selling to the highest Jordanian bidder he is trying to ensure that a responsible person with adequate funds comes in and, if they know what they are doing, is sold a majority stake. James Brent did just the same at Plymouth in bringing in as an investor and then selling to Simon Hallett. It shows that the future of the club is important to the family rather than their aim being to simply flog it to the highest bidder and hang the consequences as was best illustr
  5. I have had a play with a predictor. If Joey Barton's Fighting Gas wins their three remaining games 3-0, and Wigan, Northampton and Rochdale lose all of their games, with Swindon losing two but beating Wigan then the gas are staying up. I don't know why they're so gloomy over there and writing off the season already. https://www.worldfootball.net/table_calculator/eng-league-one/
  6. Just to correct this it was very much not a compusory order and they have not bought up all remaining shares; it was entirely people's personal choice whether or not they wanted to take up the offer. It was a generous offer of the Lansdowns making good upon an earlier promise to repay shareholders at the price they paid for the shares when the actual valuation was about a thirrd to a quarter of that. I had about two grand back I thought I wouldn't see again and was very grateful for that.
  7. It really wouldn't work. The point about the German model is that it applies to all the clubs. If Bristol City in isolation followed the German model then it would be goodbye to the Championship forever as so many clubs within it, like us currently, have owners that are prepared to write off £10m+ year after year. We would have to drop down to the level where that isn't happening around us. What is required is a much stricter version of FFP applying to all clubs or a change in the law regarding allowed ownership of English football clubs. Exeter was doing fine, last I look
  8. It's all going to come down to the final day. That's just the way that they do things there. Stay by your radio for either "Print That" or "Geoff I bin thru two divorces..."
  9. It won't happen. Why I say this is that there are two different items in play here: the ownership of the football club through a limited company and the football club. Owners can and do go bust but the club continues because there will alway be somebody who wants to own a football club; and if no individual then a fans consortium will step up. When a club is in administration then the administrators are looking for the best deal for teh creditors and that is to sell the club as a going concern. Or, as with Bury, the fans just start up a new Bury playing elsewhere leaving t
  10. Agreed. I didn't take in the reference to the current state of affairs.
  11. I think it's human nature to seek out your comfort zone. Pretty much all of us could have had far more successful careers if we were prepared to slog away endlessly but you get to a level where the money you're on is enough and the job's ok so you sit there until you retire. Pro footballers have been training day in day out since they were children. That level of training brings injury niggles and just sheer boredom with it which is why so many them get into gambling, drugs or drink. Sure we'd all love to run out at Ashton Gate, it would be like winning the lottery, but what if it'
  12. The phrase is actually: "The 1970s called; they want their opinions back."
  13. Why is it disrespectful? A woman wants the man to stay around to help raise the kids and a man in order to do this wants to have no doubt that the kids are his. That people do raise other people's children is down to social conditioning but isn't natural.
