  1. There are loads of things that it depends on that could be different between the football and rugby or Leeds and City. It could be that we insure our players contracts so they are effectively being paid by insurance now, we could have a furlough option to pay 20% in certain circumstances like this and that is already enacted, things that make up the full package such as cars are difficult to take away and just damage the local economy rather supporting the jobs at local dealerships.
  2. There's going to have to be some kind of legal protection for decisions taken due to this virus.
  3. Cancel this season and be done with it, hopefully run a full season next season starting in July/August when we hopefully have the worst of this behind us. Im hopeful that social restrictions will be lifted long before that, I don't like freedoms being removed in any circumstances for long and if these restrictions carry on into May I worry what the adverse effect will be on the HNS dealing with mental issues.
  4. What? Are you saying people with XY chromosomes are able to participate in sports traditional only people with XX chromosome have been involved in? After having years of testosterone surely those with the XY chromosomes have a massive advantage in training.
  5. How I seem to end up in a endless loop of buying a new season ticket. EDIT: never mind, phoned them and was through no problem.
  6. Do you think anyone would be proposing that if was say Brentford and Preston top with Leeds and West brom in the playoffs a point behind them?
  7. Cant wait for someone to say "keep it amateur, we like it the way it is", like you just record it and send it out and it takes about 2 hours of your week, you must love those comments :-).
  8. Maybe the club want to get rid of the moaning Dolman supporters one day but want there to be evidence that an emergency announcement was made.

    I have answered your question which was "Have you details of the ‘history of clubs financially struggling as soon as he moves on’ ?". If you want to change the question to "have you details of the ‘financial pressures’ specifically being down to Redknapp?" then no I don't have that evidence but you have admit there is a pattern? To have the evidence you now want I would have to have documented Harry's life for about 15 years. On the £18m\£800k (which I didn't disagree with) I go back to my original point - as long as the players he signed aren't on unsustainable wages and massive signing on fees then it's fine(but they were).

    nearly all of them, here are the most notable: 1983–1992 AFC Bournemouth Redknapp remained at the club for two more seasons, both of which ended with the club falling three points short of the play-offs. However, mounting financial pressures caused him to resign his position at the end of the 1991–92 season, and he subsequently rejoined former club West Ham United as a coach. He was replaced by Tony Pulis, who built a much cheaper squad that could only manage two consecutive 17th-place finishes before Pulis walked out of the club, blaming financial pressures.[citation needed] 1994–2001 West Ham United Things began to falter for Redknapp with the sale for £18 million to Leeds of Rio Ferdinand in November 2000. Redknapp used the transfer money poorly with purchases such as Ragnvald Soma, who cost £800,000 and played only seven league games, Camara, and Song. Redknapp felt he needed more funds with which to deal in the transfer market.[54] Chairman Brown lost patience with Redknapp due to his demands for further transfer funds. In June 2001, called to a meeting with Brown expecting to discuss contracts, he was fired. 2004–2005 Southampton In the 2007–08 season, George Burley revealed that players such as Bale and Kenwyne Jones had to be sold to stop the club going into administration and that failing to achieve promotion had put the club in serious financial difficulty. 2005–2008 Portsmouth During the 2009–10 season, it had become apparent to the club's new owner Balram Chainrai that Portsmouth were approximately £135 million in debt[53] so to protect the club from liquidation, Chainrai placed the club into administration on 26 February 2010

    I kind of agree with you in terms of the financial buck stops with the owner but I don't think it's irrelevant because I belive its greyer than the way you are saying. The fact that you believe everything the owner of the millionaire dog says is interesting - there are questions like if he didn't care about the wages then how was he a competent manager of the club? Surely cost is part of managing in any other profession. You seem extremely "pro Harry" (and I am as well) but there is a history of clubs financially struggling as soon as he moves on, is it just a coincidence? Do you think there is anything negative about him?

    As long as those players didn't take a massive wage well above what the club could afford your position stands up quite well.
  13. I think taking Eliasson off was the right thing to do. We have tried to incorporate him as much as possible to the detriment of the rest of the squad. I hope someone stumps up for him in the summer because he is an excellent player and person that just doesn't seem to fit in to our football. As much as I hate to say it I feel like him leaving is the best thing for all involved.

    I'm wondering (tin foil hat time) if we're sticking to 442 to accommodate Eliasson so we can sell him in the summer and go back to 532 which suits the entire rest of the squad much better, we wouldn't then ever have a discussion about 442 because it wouldn't suit us at all.
  15. I always compare ourselves to a few teams that we seem to try to emulate that haven't been in the prem and are on a similar trajectory. When we first got promoted Brentford and Leeds looked at least 2 seasons ahead of us with Preston looking about a season ahead. Last season I would have said Leeds still look 2 seasons ahead with Brentford and Preston a season behind. Now Leeds look 3 seasons ahead with Brentford 2 seasons ahead and Preston 1 season ahead. Either these teams have all been able to take big strides forward or we have gone backwards. I don't know whether to blame LJ or to feel sorry for him. I'm sure he would like to play more entertaining football but every time he gets a good player they are sold and he has to start all over again with someone new - usually taking a step back to hopefully be able to take 2 steps forward. It's a tough one but I don't think anyone else would do a better job with the constraints The constraints are what are supposed to takes us forward slowly but surely but has there simply been too many backwards steps hoping for forward steps in the future, maybe in a couple years we will take a big stride forward if we get to keep the current crop.
