  1. Hence my line:
  2. Seems like he's trained on, to use a horse racing analogy. Someone with so much confidence is surely worth a place on the bench at some stage this season? I hear the 'he's still built like a boy' arguments but Michael Owen is nearly 40 and he's still built like a boy! And Ian Rush was a right skinny bugger throughout his career. That bit of the argument is nonsense imo...
  3. Even the Happy Clappers on here have acknowledged how much fitter Udders were than us. Well, such a simple thing like fitness has brought them a 200 million pot of gold whilst we are still in Division 2. Needs sorting ASAP.
  4. Well, he is married to a Sheffield lass...
  5. And DC has only a 5% stake in the family business. My speculation is his personal wealth is considerably less than MM's reported 100 million but the talk of a consortium at the time of his purchase would probably be correct. Who is in the consortium is anyone's guess, of course, but the EFL ratified the deal so that's fine with me. The alleged Reading connection was certainly discussed oon here at the time.
  6. Well, yes, but you can't value a person's wealth and not take into account the perceived value of their holdings in companies. Like I said, 400 million for DC seems stupendously high and you really can't believe everything you hear. I'm sure Forbes is a much more reliable barometer of actual wealth that Big Gun's mate down the pub edit: how Forbes compiles its rich list https://www.forbes.com/sites/naazneenkarmali/2017/05/30/thailands-50-richest-2017-the-nations-wealthiest-rise-against-the-odds/#990671345cda
  7. I think you will find it does. Wealth is viewed as cash plus assets. And assets include stakes in companies, valuables etc. I remember Alan Sugar complaining about how far down he always is on the Times Rich list and he believes no-one should be on the list who couldn't sign a cheque right now for a 100 million quid (apparently he can!).
  8. Where did the 400 million come from? Not doubting you but Forbes list the Chansiri family (now whether this includes DC or just the TUF part of the family I don't know) as worth a combined 700 million dollars. 400 million for for DC alone seems very high...and I can't see the company being worth 12 billion at the moment gievn their current 4 billion t/o. https://www.forbes.com/profile/kraisorn-chansiri/
  9. There bloody well has to be (not that i'm complaining) Let's not forget the huge TUF billboard behind him at his very first press conference. I would be surprised if DC's personal wealth is as much as Milan Mandaric's, for instance. PS agreed about parachute payments, but should we go up next season and come straight back down I do wonder if we will get any threads on here complaining how unfair it is on our Champ rivals that we are getting them lol...

  11. About the same as we are paying Lees per annum reportedly...people (certainly on here) vastly under estimate the importance of managers.
  12. Since when did awetfanny become a bad thing? Have you ever seen one? Oh, and stop stalking me. www.imaweirdoandhatealmatbecausehedoesnotagreewithwithmyfrequentlyinanewitterings.com
  13. Talking of holding back, did you not read my retraction posted a couple of minutes later which can be seen directly under the post you are replying to? www.specsavers.co.uk
  14. Endured it again and revise my opinion on Boyd to OK. Some neat touches but it was the awful neshing out with that ball to him which stuck in my mind first time around.
  15. Have to agree with this. Looked great in the other game, looked rubbish here...
