  1. Lukaku song thoughts.

    Really? I don't recall it being chanted at Junior Bent. If he reads your post he'll get a complex.
  2. Lukaku song thoughts.

    I have absolutely zero idea what they're singing. You guys have clearly taken nightschool classes in speaking northern.

    Who are they talking about again? The very small number of Derby fans I have known have been very self-deprecating and laugh about their having the record lowest points score in the Premier League and similar glorious failures. As I say very small sample but they have all been a totally sound bunch.

    I've also had a quick gander at where this 6% came from. Whilst it's not disclosed if you look at their interest payments y/e 30 June 2016 they are a whopping £435k. Simple average loan balance is £7.5m so that's 5.8% which is probably 6% given the crudeness of a simple average calculation. Bearing in mind that this was 15 months' ago it's not going to look any better now. 2015/16 loss was £2.9m but there are two big adjustments in this: Write off of capitalised costs £2.3m Interest waived on previous bonds shown as income £0.6m So the underlying loss is (2.9) + 2.3 - 0.6 = £1.2m or £0.8m before that big interest charge. With all the legal fees for the failed UWE you can push that underlying loss to at least £1.0m for y/e June 17 and add another £0.5m of interest. Loan balance is trickier as it's showing at £7.2m but with £1.4m of payments made on account that didn't exist in the prior year; some of which will translate into debt. Minimum loan at 30 June 2017 is 7.2 + 1.0 (loss 16/17) + 0.5 (interest) = £8.7m, porbably higher. This leaves at most £1.3m undrawn which is insufficient to meet the losses and interest for the current season (£1.6m); hence my pencilling in March as a backstop date when the Al Qs have either to sell the club, sell some of its assets (Bert suggested that the ground was up for sale) or actually put some of their own money at risk unsecured to complete the season. Interesting times.

    A quick change of the memo and articles, flog off the playing side for a nominal sum, and bingo: Bristol Rovers Property Development Company Limited. In a nod to the company's origins in football they could name some of the streets after ex players and managers. Tillson Terrace Bradford Boulevard Dog Botherer's Drive Holloway's Hostel

    4. Is the key one and the answer will come in March, if not before with current gates, when the loan facility secured against the ground will be fully drawn at which point they will need to put their own money at risk. Currently their only skin in the game is the amount they paid for the club. I'm not expecting the club to go "pop" in March; they can put a charge on the land for the training ground to take them through to the end of the season but a buyer then has to be found as you then have a club with zero net assets losing c. £1.3m a year and they would have to put their own money at risk to keep it going. And there seems to be big reluctance to do that.

    I'll keep an eye then. I'm no Steve Lansdown but I have a few quid and it would be nice to frustrate them.

    True; it's like being the PR Man for Hannibal Lecter!

    Ah, leave the guy alone they are great videos. If there's an equivalent vlogger for us please direct me to their vids.
  11. Gary Owers and Martin Kuhl Appointed at Torquay

    I think the owner has made their intention crystal clear by naming their holding company "Riveria Stadium Limited"! No mention of Torquay FC or football...
  12. Sky to refund Blackpool fans who made trip to Plymouth

    That's not bad given they won 3-1; and Plymouth had a player sent off for the thrd game running.

    The council owns the freehold and shows no sign of giving it up. That's the best security that the club has.
  14. Gary Owers and Martin Kuhl Appointed at Torquay

    I really hope they turn it around for Torquay; their league position is shocking for a club who were a decent fourth divsion side for decades. They are currently bottom of the conference: 21 Chester 8 22 Solihull Moors 7 23 Guiseley 7 24 Torquay 3
  15. Harry Redknapp - New Birmingham Boss - Cotts his Assistant !!

    Really? I've heard calls for Warnock and I tend to agree but having seen how 'Arry has performed recently, particularly at QPR, I can't see why anyone would want him here. Where he gets success it's by attracting players by paying double the wages that any other club would pay and that hasn't ended well at club after club.
