Why do we even still have a thread about that lot on our forum..?

im not interested in them and only entered the thread to say so, they have no place on our forum and I for one would prefer it if it was on a sub forum somewhere !!

The good news for somebody that isn't interested but still posts in the thread is that you will get a notification every time somebody quotes you, which will be a handy reminder of how much you don't care. :whistle:

Why would he spend money and destabilise a winning team?

So you'll be happy and think you'll cope if no new signings come in during the summer?

Alternatively, he could spend his trillions building a legoland bowl but he doesn't seem too interested in that either

Funny who you bump into on a social occasion and what you make small talk about isn't it?

I mean there's a saying that comes to mind in situations like this.."Loose Lips Sink (Pirate) Ships". 

Oh! my, I am going to belly laugh so intensely when their particular Pirate Ship has to traverse the choppy waters ahead and inevitably run aground.

You think the relegation to Non League was hilarious? Wait for it cos it's going to get a whole lot funnier....

I'm off back to the party to see what other prize gems are going to fall my way, nothing quite like alcohol to loosen people up.

They will be comfortable in league one..mid table finish won't be a problem-not a big step up,that's for sure!!

Just heard they are now the 10th richest club in England....

Oh yes a billionaire who is not listed anywhere in any rich list not even in Jordan and so rich that he has to seek investment to build a new stadium because apparently "no one person could fund such and undertaking", so perhaps looking for investors to help buy Tubbs.

No.

Who we let go is more of a test, are rover's still a selling club.  Well, to a degree we r all selling clubs, but u get my drift.

 

I thought your club had just made a massive statement of intent by offering a squad full of conference players new contracts?

Granted, that doesn't mean Wally won't make funds available, but with wage caps based on turnover in place will he be able to get quality in if the wage bill has been blown on some bloke who 3 years ago had to get up to deliver post.

It's interesting that none of the 14 players out of contract has yet resigned.  Presumably cogniscent of how wealthy the new owner is, constantly bragged about on slagchat. their agents will be asking for 200 - 300% pay rises.

The same will apply to potential new signings who will be looking to relieve Mr Wally of some of his lolly.

£9k a week offered to Taylor, on very good authority. 

Something about 3rd party ownership.

Wasn't it 3rd party ownership that resulted in the whole Tevez/West Ham/Sheffield United thing?

Got to be honest, I'm not entirely sure how it works, other than it isn't allowed.

That and a few other nuggets I gleaned last night. 

Waiting for the hangover to die down and I'll pass a few more on...

As he's out of contract I suppose it would make sense for them to pay him 450k pa rather than spend that on another striker.

But they are heading for trouble if they're thinking of 3rd party ownership.

If the player has any sense, he'll be off to something bigger and better I would have thought.

 

I heard Reading mentioned.
