  1. I don’t know but there’s a possibility it’s just a tax thing. Might want to offset the asset (the stadium) with a liability (the loan). I’ve seen it with people who want to give shares to someone without creating a taxable gain for the person they’re giving shares to.
  2. Pretty sure I once saw big Dave beaten to the ball by a linesman.
  3. Assuming we have rental agreement with them, we should be able to negotiate flexibility for SWFC to sub-let it though right?
  4. If we look at it historically - staying up this season is the equivalent of finishing 12th last season. Previous two seasons before that it’s more like 15th and back up to 11th for the season before them. It’s basically a question of “are we a top half side?” That should be possible with this squad + a striker + a bit of injury luck.
  5. There’s provision for a rainy day and there’s provision for a global pandemic. Agree that most clubs need to prepare better for tough times but I’m not sure we can hold them responsible for not seeing this coming.
  6. There’s loads of research showing how stress can have permanent effects on brain function and particularly the speed at which you can think situations through. He’s had a rough time with us and it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s just slowed down mentally. It’s such fine margins in the game now that a half second here or there and he’s no longer the player he once was. hope I’m wrong and the Beattie can turn him into a world-beater mind!
  7. This is what makes the window so exciting IMO. We’ve got options now to shift things about if it’s not going our way. Before we really struggled against organised teams. Now we can be more direct when we need it. Before we struggled to manage games out (how many points did we drop in extra time last season), now we can bring luongo / hutch on and pack the middle. Feels like very astute work to me.
  8. Anyone know who Acura Sports are? They’re claiming Reach to QPR for £5m - must be bullsh*t right?
  9. According to Nixon. Some interest. Great business if so.
  10. Bringing my 7 yr old niece for her first Wednesday game against Reading. Anyone know where I can find kid-friendly versions of the songs to share with her mum in advance. The little one is excited and wants to learn the songs before the big day.
  11. Interesting article in the paper today on the stats behind sacking / not sacking managers. Upshot is most sackings happen when the manager is unlucky vs underperforming and that bringing in a new manager tends not to make the slightest bit of difference http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/sacking-managers-pointless-stats-slaven-bilic-west-ham-premier-league-a8044586.html
  12. Got 2 in the west lower that I can't use. Drop me a message if you're interested
  13. I've got a couple in west lower that I can't use. Drop me a message if you're interested
