Hows it going Rick?

 

Hope you are have a nice summer... I mean winter. :carlosswfc:

Hey mate! All good yes.

And this is a particularly mild "winter". I've spent most of it in shorts and t-shirts (tops of 20-24, mins around 10). Feels more like Spring, though might be something cooler on the way.

Personally think DC going for it was in his first season. That failed and now we are going to have to deal with the consequences of that by having sod all money to spend.

I don't think he has but I think others close to the source have pointed out that £20m has been wasted recently and have tightened his purse strings a little. 

Yeah but regardless he's a the best owner in the history of the world apparently

We already have a punishment. It’s called FFP. Try competing for 3 spots when 3  delegated clubs get a £40 head start and you can’t spend. 

Well I didn’t proof read that did I?

I'd just say fizz it.

 

If they try and fine us more we point to this and say it's a precedent, we should not get a bigger punishment.

I think the fl have to confirm any signings and if they are already watching you financially they can say that you can't complete certain signings if they think it will take you over your limit, so I believe.

I think its a fair assumption that DC has money to spend, if not him personally then he has access to it.

It's common knowledge we are  very close to the ffp limit and whilst our squad is very good there are no guarantees that throwing money at it and taking us over the limit is a proven road to success, yes it worked for Wolves and Bournemouth but teams like Villa and countless others have failed.

Looking at our recent history we would be foolish to risk the stability of the club.

The squad we have with one or two additions is more than capable of promotion from this league.

If we are still in this league next year we will have greater room for movement in the transfer market.

And the spending of the first year under Chansiri will be written off so all in all it should free up some serious cash.

Just got to steady the financial ship for a season or two. Get a few young fit lads in, build a squad and push on when the books are clear. Let's see what Jos can do.

Financial Farce Play?

Think I'd prefer Financial Arse Play if I'm honest.

 

You might prefer "Financial Arse Play"

But I , most certainly, don't. ........

When does our spending money time reset... does the 3 year losses and expenses thing still apply or has that changed? Will we be able to chuck some cash about next season?
