  1. Football will self destruct. Crazy wages and admission prices. It is no wonder some fans, including me have Sky. I doubt if I pay €1 a match over the course of a season. Good value.
  2. Why ? It is because he is bankrolling high earners with his cash and not with earned income from the club that we are in breach of FFP. That is why it was introduced. It is his fault we are in a mess.

    The DC Era

    You are obviously a long standing passionate supporter, although I find your posts angry and rude to individuals. You cannot seem to grasp why people are negative, disappointed and disillusioned with what has and is happening under DC. He is rich and bought the club when investment was needed, so like thousands of other supporters, I was excited for the future. If there were no controls on rich owners spending their money, I wouldn't be as downcast about the future as I am now. He could still pour his money in and get it right one day, however, that is not the case. He must have been aware how close we were to strict embargoes but still spent recklessly. He then has the nerve to want supporters to fund his ambitions by paying silly ticket prices, in a city which is far from rich. As a club we are in a far better position than we were in the dark days but could be so much better. The immediate future does not look good. It is the hope that kills.

    The pressure is on...

    The negativity stems from disappointment. After MM saved the club and stabilised us, his sale to a very wealthy owner gave us real hope of a great future. DC injected real money into the transfer budget, but most of it has been wasted. He asked fans to back him by buying inflated season tickets, matchday tickets and increasing box prices to a level which alienated business people. He has appointed managers who had no experience of English Leagues and it almost worked but almost is not good enough. He now wants fans to keep backing him but admits if we are not promoted this season we are in big trouble. He is out of his depth and I wish I could be optimistic for the future but I can't .

    Time for a poll

    My wish list is a new owner and manager. Sadly I don't think Xmas will come early.

    SWFC name unchanged line up

    I do wish OP's would stop using misleading titles to their threads. The first word should be "Has" I thought it was an early announcement of tomorrows team.

    Mr Chansiri

    We were all excited when DC took over the club. His wealth offered a hope of good times. It almost happened but almost is not good enough. He is responsible for wasting millions, no one else. If we do have financial problems and embargoes in the future, who else is to blame ?

    Sell Reach?

    Any offer over £15 mil. Yes

    My Balanced View

    Anyone who thinks we deserved anything out of that game is watching something different to what I am seeing. We were second best in most positions, only Reach and Bannan would get in there team. We had trouble getting the ball from midfield to the forwards because of poor positioning and equally poor passing. I cannot see us finishing near the top six so forget about any chance of promotion.

    Safe standing

    They already do it at Anfield.
  14. We are in this position because of mismanagement by our owner. Yes the fans wanted Rhodes,. but it was up to the owner to explain although he could afford him, it would have placed us in danger of breaching FFP.
