  1. We had planning permission granted a few years ago, no reason to think it wouldn't be again.
  2. The stadium has suffered from chronic under investment for decades. All that has been done for as long as I can remember is the minimum to keep it operational. Even some of the suggestions made on here like "a kick of paint" would cost several hundred thousand pounds. The stadium needs more than a cosmetic makeover it needs major redesigning. The north stand concourses need a redesign so the stand can be used to its full capacity. The kop & west stand including the NW corner need totally replacing. It's not likely to happen without sustained top flight footba
  3. Hardly a suprise considering income generated for the last 12 months has been almost £0 Not defending DC but it's hard to pin this totally on him, a global pandemic and a season without a fan being in the stadium won't have been thought of as a risk in many clubs financial planning.
  4. Who knows what the situation would be. I can't see how the club could sell a sponsorship deal for a building they don't own. With how rushed the sale of the ground appears who knows if sufficient detail was put in the leaseback agreement re sponsorship, naming rights etc.
  5. We don't own the stadium so any naming rights wouldn't go to the club.
  6. Sheffield 3 is it that owns the stadium now? They could sell back to SWFC for a nominal fee with an agreed future payment of £60m when we get back to the premier league, club then sells the stadium again to Sheffield 4 for what ever number chansiri plucks out of the sky. EFL spontaneously combust.
  7. As title, EFL drop all charges against Chansiri, and others.
  8. Give us a clue how he can double the club's turnover. That's what would need to happen for us to be able to sustain a squad capable of challenging at the top end of the table without him having to continuously fund losses. Selling more shirts and pies won't cut it unfortunately.
  9. What would you suggest he do differently (that will actually make a tangible difference)? The biggest mistake is not selling players when we've had decent offers. But imagine the outcry if we'd have sold FF after his first season with us when the bids were coming in.
  10. New account and overdraft with the co-op bank?
  11. And those "fans" were happy to let the club slip in to administration.
  12. Barring VAT what tax liabilities are we trying to avoid using this scheme as a loss making company? What money do you think is going to be taken out of the club considering without the owner consistently covering losses we'd be up poo creek. I'm no financial expert so it's a genuine question.
