  1. With the following season and attendance of fans in doubt.
    All these players going out of contract on 30th June could very well find themselves without a club or on contracts on severely reduced wages.

    So I can understand why those whose contracts expire on the 30th June are reluctant to take a wage cut/deferral. When there future employment and earning power is in jeopardy.

    One of the residents' arguments is that direct information was promised in advance of every match (things can change match-by-match).


    I've looked on the website myself and can find residents information articles for 6 matches. Out of 19 home games (20 including the friendly). 


    The articles start with these paragraphs:

    You can kind of see the frustration for some of the residents if what they've been promised hasn't happened.


    The generalised information is great and I suspect that is what the club have put in place after the fact so they don't have to post an article for every match. Which is fair enough if that information is correct and if residents are then told that it is the definitive place to go (some didn't know it even existed). Plus, it doesn't reflect any changes match-by-match and doesn't help when it come to planning for cup games as shown above.


    Personally, I think the residents have a point. I'm all for them being directed to the website to get the information (it makes the most sense - I know letters used to be delivered regularly to households in the area in the past, but that just seems outdated in this day and age) - but that information has to be up to date and accurate for each game. Make sure the same correct information is filtered to the stewards and police in their briefings (and consistently applied), and then there is little for the residents to then complain about IMO.



    Those pages I quoted were just cached ones.
    If anything - the fact I couldn't find anything Pre-October shows they didn't do anything for the first 2-3 months of the season.

    End of the day though

    I just thought I'd provide what i could see . No opinion on the matter

    Questioning a few signings is a wholly different topic to wanting a Brentford style buy/sell and stay where you are policy, totally different.

    And page 2 of that thread i linked

    "Sorry but if you're not slightly concerned by the way we've handled our business under Chansiri then I think you need to wake up a bit. It's been haphazard with not much logic or careful thought in my opinion."

    Come on - I've given you evidence of fans questioning the running of the club in 2015

    Admit you're wrong

    Whereas your views are absolutely open to be changed?


    Nobody's fault *but* DC's...


    Pot. Kettle.

    I mean considering he's the 100% beneficial owner and in charge of running the club and has all the power and control of all the strings?...

    I'm assuming they are happy to be sustainable at the level they are at, they might get lucky one time and achieve it but its unlikely, if DC who is potentially worth millions had breezed into the club with this pragmatic approach our fans would have gone ballistic, your only speaking now with hindsight after the initial gamble faded.

    Absolutely not
    I was fuming we had gone down the reckless approach

    Now it's just apathy

    I can feel everyone getting cup fever this morning and the place will be full to the rafters 


    We then beat Man City 2-0 with both goals coming from Tom Lees 35 yard free kicks 


    We then go on a stupendous run in the league, getting into the play off final 


    Making two trips to Wembley having beat Newcastle in the 1/4 finals and the Pigs in the semi's


    Having done the double DC then gets next years kit out before August at an affordable price 





    Gone too far with that last line haven't I??



    You had me up until the kit too.
    Was entirely believable

    If you were properly following accounting standards then the front loading would not be permissible and it would have no impact on FFP. 


    Indeed as noted on here there is a case for arguing it is really a loan and your "interest" is paid out on the form of free season tickets. 


    Saying that I can't believe we have sold enough to warrant detailed technical scrutiny

    Oh yeah that’s how your supposed to do it

    Id be willing to place a sizeable bet it hasn’t though

    Not exactly sure that's such a big achievement, still ended in abject failure (and his tenure hamstrung the club for years following in view of recruitment, player conditioning and culture)


    I bet Big Ron would be a bit aggrieved having won a cup and actual promotion to the top league. I'd also put Sturrock above Carlos if judging on play offs only, he actually won his one.

    I still remember Sturrock in the pre-match interview when asked how do you think you'll do

    "I've never actually won one"

    Great....add to the nerves lol
