To be fair to the OP, I heard that this was one of a long list of things that DC was looking at to try and solve the P&S problem. This was around the time of the first fans forum this season. Not sure £30m is an accurate valuation, and as far as I know it wasn’t pursued. Unless the idea is being revisited.

Heard from a good sorce Mr C has sold ground to family member for £30 mill ,thus clearing debts and providing Mr Bruce with funds for transfer window !

 

Just to add further legs to this theory.

 

I sit near the subs bench, Chansiri is always around the dugout when he's in town. He's very proud to lead the team out and show his support. However yesterday, He wasn't around the dugout at all (which is significant). Walking towards the concourse before HT, took a quick look over the Executive box and indeed, he did have alot more family over than normal.

 

Steve Bruce would not take this job without an ambitious owner.

 

Chansiri will not sell players to balance the books.

 

Selling the stadium to someone extremely trustworthy, is a very logical next step to increase revenue and work around FFP.

As others have said, regardless of whether or not this is a good thing for SWFC (and I think the jury’s out on that, if it proves to be true), it just goes to prove the hypocrisy that is P&S, Profit & Sustainability lest we forget.

 

How rules can be established on the premise of making clubs more financially responsible yet can be circumvented by financially irresponsible / unsustainable decisions is beyond me.

 

This may or may not be in Chansiri’s thinking but for me this obviates the need for a complete review and overhaul of P&S rules that are clearly unfit for purpose.

Maybe the P&S rules are changing after this season and we are following the new guidelines ?

Will make trying to sell the club at a future date very difficult. 

 

A whole world of protracted discussions awaits..

If true and if it’s family, let’s hope it’s family who are simply doing a favour and have no interest in the land of using it as a bargaining chip with him as that would create a bigger issue than the share split that made the Milan deal so difficult.

 

The common sense approach would be to sell a couple of players, sit tight and go again next season if we can.

Great post.

 

I understand the need for some kind of regulation, but the current system is unworkable. While clubs with parachute payments are allowed to spend way beyond everyone else, it creates an unfair system which encourages desperate practices in order to try and even the playing field.

What’s not to like, you don’t hire a manager like Bruce, and expect him to do things on a budget

 

According to his son, he had a fairly low net spend at Villa

Yes. Clubs are put into an administration type situation for having cash to spend in a loss making industry that relies on willing owners to prop the whole thing up. Even a 1m quid loss is unsustainable so why is 39m ok but not 45m for example? The key should be that debts are not laden on clubs and should be written off.

He didn’t spend that much at Hull the first time he got them promoted either.

Why is that Gerinako, you don't have any problem living in a mortgaged home do you ? So why a problem sitting in a rented stadium 39.5 hours a year. You will still have the same emotional attachment !
