    Makes consistently poor decisions. Shame, because he has a bit of pace about him and a goal in him. Impact sub at best.

    Oh no. You've said it now.

    Chairman’s statement

    Im just baffled by the timing of it. There's a reasonable feel good factor at the moment. Big cup game to look forward to. Managerial appointment universally applauded. Injured players getting back to fitness. Previously excluded players back in contention and playing well. Then along comes DC like a great big mood Hoover and reminds us we're up the creek without a paddle in a few months. Just unnecessary ramblings of little value that can only have a negative impact.

    That's not really what I'm getting at, but in answer to your question, I don't think a box at either Sheffield club has much of a value from a corporate point of view, aside from maybe 2/3 games a season. I'm not sure a client from London is going to be seduced by a couple of box tickets to Wednesday or Utd v Brentford. Box purchases at our level will be driven by well- off fans, not by anyone making a strategic business decision.

    I'll say it again - you can't charge over £100 a head and make a loss serving them a 4 course meal. It depends what else you factor in as costs. There are 1001 things that need paying for at the football club, including the players wages that people in the boxes are paying to see. If you wanted to work out if a cinema was making money you'd factor in the cost of the rights to show the movies. How does that work with exec boxes? It's virtually impossible to accurately say what a box does or doesn't make.

    How do you even quantify what's a profit?. I'm pretty sure you can turn on the lights and heating for 3 hours and feed 10 people 23 times a year for £19k, but that's not the full story is it?

    Potential points deduction.

    It'll all be forgotten when Atdhe puts us one up at the Bridge.

    I guess it's because the timing of the statement is a bit random, plus the mysterious 'decision' that doesn't seem to have been communicated.

    Depends if it gives us the wriggle room for a couple of decent loans until the end of the season. If we could.line replacements up and turn a good profit it might be a chance worth taking.

    Chairman’s statement

    Of course there isn't. Either a change to the rules, selling best players, or the most unlikely promotion since Baldrick became a Lord in Blackadder III. They're the only ways out.

    I bet he's sold Fox, the bugger.
