  1. Your choice but hope you're in a minority.
  2. Wouldn't bet on it. Premier may have many fans abroad that drive commercial sponsorship but TV rights deals aren't that lucrative. Combined fans backlash if coordinated could really do some damage. Let your TV provider know you'll scrap your subscription if they sign up, ditto custom for things like your local boozer. It's about time fans readdressed the balance.
  3. Only if you subscribe. Simple solution.....
  4. Let them go ensuring it's a one way door. Once gone they aren't coming back. Boycott all income streams and make clear to sponsors you'll be boycotting their products. Let them rot.
  5. Well, if ever I'm required to develop a case study on 'ennui' the final two years tenure of WeeLee at The Gate won't need much fleshing out. It was when he stated spouting such drivel one knew the end was nigh so beggars belief we stuck with him for those final two seasons.
  6. That's your opinion, which of course isn't law as it correctly notes a thief, is a thief, is a thief. It's also naïve as those large global corporations are owned by people like you & I via our pension provisions, savings et al. Much as when One Eyed Gordon removed dividend tax credits many applauded at the attack on the corporates. They stopped clapping pretty quickly when realising several tens of thousands of pounds had been removed from their personal pension pots. Morals also don't relate to individual preference. You decide by preference, but that has zilch to do with morals. Yo
  7. Yet you profess to be happy to pay monies that you see as benefitting our club? How then City receive greater income courtesy of Sky subscriptions than us fans cough up for admittance? I'd also be interested to hear what other forms of theft you think equitable? Nicking sweets from the corner shop, filling up and driving off without paying, breaking into one's neighbour, for theft is what you describe and admit having undertaken?
  8. PoF is essential listening for all football fan, though they won't like much of what they'll hear.
  9. Not doubting what you've written Bert but if it's true that's most odd (and I've delivered a few major building projects in my time.) For those who don't understand Bert's subtleties. In normal practice were the land on which the training facilities to stand be owned by Wael (not the club,) the club would enter into a pre-lease or service supply contract with the owner who, through their contractor, would have constructed the facility at their risk in accordance with Rovers requirements (Design & Build.) No funding for Cat A & B works is payable until the facility has practical co
  10. They need that money to continue the folly they've constructed these past decades. There is a much easier and cheaper solution. Have the whole EFL enter an agreed CVA putting the owners at the bottom of the pile and start from scratch. Establish an agreed wage and sustainability structure. Not good for players, managers, agents and hangers-on but best for fans and football. Handouts will only line the pockets of those who've ruined the game.
  11. They're not tiny and of late I'm seeing many more of them around town. Fact is their discerning palates moved on from Blackthorn ages ago, they now prefer Frosty Jack's or Ace - at least that what the blokes in the pub told me. When I say pub, they were actually squatting in the doorway avoiding the rain.
  12. Not quite. Although those you mention take first dibs there are other forms of registered interest that may take likewise (anything with a charge, for example.) Ditto shares which may be preferential (i.e. must be repaid first - sometimes distinguished A,B,C....) Gas net debt is circa £25m and the freehold and canvas assets are worth nothing of that quantum. If they shut up shop today the present owners would lose money, same as us. Inflating loan fees to self advanced loans has no merit once net assets turn red. Revaluing assets likewise leads to capital gain, hence the reason we went a
  13. Coppell had agreement for £250k on condition the deal was concluded within a couple of days (Sheff U were in dire financial straits with HMRC and offloading players to meet the bill.) Kenny's wages were within budget because we were getting him on the cheap. I think Kenny gilders the lily in suggesting Sheff U wanted to keep him after his ban, they were simply looking to cash in.
  14. Only if the assets are worth more than all debt, especially preferential...... Not sure this is the case at The House Of Tents. Remember loans MUST have a repayment schedule, including end term (else they aren't loans.) One of the main reasons for converting loan to stock is when there are 'obstacles' in taking out replacement loans. Another option, as with Mr Lansdown, is it's a mechanism to ensure any 'investment' (sic) may eventually be 'written off'.
