Well,here I am back for one night only, you lucky buggers!!...
It's been a funny old season from from Mismanagement to mushrooms, my thoughts on our beloved club doesn't read well,so look away now if you are easily upset(quite a few on here no doubt), firstly can I say IF Steve Bruce is announced then that's quite a coup in our position both on and off the pitch,having been to several steering groups it appears our chairman talks a lot without much substance,yes he gives `titbits` away like players wages and throwing Abdi under the bus,but when pressed on FFP he seems more clued up than most but yet we ended up in a temporary embargo,but it's ok because he`s working "very hard" to solve this,well Mr.Chansiri I can save you the effort,there is no `wriggle room`.
Maybe that's why he said after a lengthy fans group meeting that the club is up for sale! I mean that was genuinely a WTAF! moment.
Good news! we employ a CEO to run the club,yay!!!many fans even as far back as Pearsons departure were saying thats what was needed, well we thought we'd employed one,when in actual fact she isn't a CEO but a glorified marketing manager,again a chairman who can't grasp that you can not run a club on your own from thousands of miles away(hopefully the penny will drop one day),fair play to her though she`s sorting out contracts for the up and coming players (if you believe that)
Just for reference the following will not cover the 20m (yes 20mm not 15m) or be a loophole to shoehorn money in;( there is no loopholes just for reference no matter how hard you work)
Sale of the club
Injection of cash from outside sources
Made up companies/brands
Loopholes(play on repeat)
I will put the following in CAPS LOCK so it's not lost on the masses...
THE ONLY WAY TO SOLVE FFP(P&S) IS TO SELL YOUR BEST PLAYERS,but oh no we aren't going to do that because we (SWFC) are working hard on trying to avoid it
Sooo...we come to the `Brucie bonus`, the club is in the mire(fact) but if reports are true he's going to be one of the highest paid managers in the league AND we get people talking about who he`ll be signing in January!! , really!!! but really!? even if he signs no one his wage must be that of a decent Championship player,added to that his entourage who won`t come cheap,lets be honest Brucie ain't coming on the cheap.
My view on our chairman's latest acquisition...last throw of the dice,it's s-h-i-t or bust boys and girls! yes our chairman in my opinion is that deluded he thinks good old Brucie is going to get us to the promised land this season
Well I hope he's right but more importantly for me he sticks with us for the next 3+ years in the wilderness.
DC has been good for this club,but as you can and will see he's been an absolute nightmare with his idea of how the club should be run
This club is a mess,forgive me if this thread doesn't age well,I will be the first to apologise if I`m wrong.
On that note A very Merry Christmas and a Great New Year to ALL of you on here,I love you more than words can say
There´s a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say "cuckoo"
Regretfully they tell us Cuckoo, cuckoo
But firmly they compel us Cuckoo, cuckoo
To say goodbye
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu
So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
I´d like to stay and taste my first champagne
