  1. If 18000 fans were to put in £5000 each then that would raise £90,000,000. There would need to be a very very very strict wage ceiling and rely heavily on younger players from the academy and lower leagues. Develop and sell for a profit.
  2. Between the lines it seems Pulis wanted his targets bringing in , while Chansiri advisors alerted him to fact they were defensive minded targets, and an older generation of player going against what Chansiri had openly stated when he took over that he wanted to see attractive attacking football, and his more recent statement of wanting a younger squad. This (style of play) was the reason he gave when appointing CC as opposed to Gray at the time he first came in as owner. He's made a balls up appointing TP in the first place in that respect, however he has at least act
  3. Avoid relegation this season to aim did playoffs next season. That was the plan. Chansiri didn't think that with Pulis it would be acheived to push on next season IF we stay up this season. It's not rocket science what he was saying !
  4. I can see the logic in this. And switch to 4312 or 433 Also cash in on Iorfa who's out long term injury anyway. Iorfa 5m Bannan 1.5m Reach 2m .....,............Westwood. Palmer. Dunkley. Lees. Penney. ..................Shaw............. .......Dele-Bashiru.Brown. ..Windass<.Switch Roles.>Harris ....................Rhodes
  5. I suggest that an official protest is made against Chansiri at the way the club is being run. Enough is enough. It's a complete shambles. Everything is pointing at us going in the direction of Bolton or worse still Rangers or Bury . And Yes we can protest during Lockdown: PROTESTING UNDER THE NEW TIER RULES On 2 December 2020, the national lockdown in England ended and the Government introduced a new system of Tier rules. The new regulations prohibit outdoor gatherings of more than six people in all Tiers, with the rules being even more restrictive in Tier

  7. Or perhaps it's a communication issue, you know with English being his first language and perhaps not knowing Cypriot!
  8. While it's not exactly a shock that he died relatively young, it doesn't take away the impact of his passing. He was legendary within in his own life time. A footballing genius, with a troubled personal life. The joy he brought to many watching his sublime skills, AND the pain to fans of opposing teams also, can not and should not be forgotten. To watch him with the ball at his feet was mesmerising. In my opinion, nobody in the modern game comes close, not Messi nor Ronaldo. Diego Maradona: Obituary - Argentina's flawed football icon -
  9. Who said anything about it being our fault? The post is simply suggesting that reason he hasn't played is because we can't afford to pay his ex club any more money. It's not unusual to have caveats in a transfer that make further payments at different stages. If the player wins promotion with new team, previous team receives x amount Every 10 goals scored x amount is paid Landmark goals 50, 75, 100 activates further x payments Landmark appearances 25, 50 etc etc activates further x payments
  10. He clearly hasn't got a clue what he's doing, why else have we ended up with 6 point deduction. He gambled everything on the first two seasons under Carlos. Throwing money at it. It was spent badly and now there is no ability to spend similar because we're overspending on wages. There's something like another 12-14 players out of contract in the summer. That's when our wage costs go right down.
  11. How do you know he's not got a 20 goal a season clause in his contract? By limiting him to 10-20 mins per match reduces the possibility of him him getting thst target. When first signed it wasn't a problem with the money being splashed around. Such is the poor foresight of our chairman, he offset the expected future outlay to be afforded from premier TV money. However, such is the financial dire straits now, he cannot afford to pay the agreed clause and therefore he isn't picked. Same with Westwood. He equalled club record clean sheets in two seasons. Clause in his co
  12. Hardly a bad era at Wednesday under Wilkinson; 1983–84Div 2 2nd 1984–85Div 1 8th 1985–86Div 1 5th 1986–87Div 1 13th 1987–88Div 1 11th 88-89 Then he left and Peter Eustace came in, one of our worst ever starts to a season and he was sacked. Big Ron saved us managed 15th. 89-90 Div 1 18th Relegated under Big Ron playing pretty football 90-91 Div 2 3rd (Behind Oldham and West Ham) promoted and won Rumbelows League Cup So, in all, Big Ron had ONE successful season. However, he had been afforded funds (as was Trevor F) that
  13. Your guess is as good as mine! To make it less obvious perhaps?
  14. It does make sense if it costs a million quid for each landmark. Taking the club over the edge making more breaches and having more points taken off.
