Chairman’s statement

Recommended Posts

We need to change our mode of operating. We need to be somewhere between what we were doing and what other sides like Preston and United are doing. 

 

Simply going cap in hand to raise more funds externally might be ok for a short term fix of this situation. But if we end up right back in the mire again that’s his fault

Here you go again, the highest paid player at the club is on £35k so I've no idea how McManaman got 40, do you get your info from The Sun? :tango:

Nah, the much more reliable "pigs-mad"

ive heard steve agnew say we keep our best players reach,bannan etc ,then bruce /agnew say we wanted a club to match our ambitions . well the above statement says that aint possible . if someone offers 15million for reach he has to go, then reinvest some or all of it ,clearly they wont be any fresh funds this summer ,maybe 2-3 loans or out of contract players ,yes we are losing 10 plus players in the summer most on silly money but we have over a 10 million shortfall in the accounts to avoid an embargo . 8 figures was quoted so 10 million is the lowest it can be. I can see bruce having face on before he even starts 

 

I keep seeing this "losing 10 players in the summer" yes their contracts are up but what if some actually want to stay?

So he makes this announcement in yet another late night statement full of contradictions only weeks after hiring a bloke on 2m quid contract that is still diving in the pool ...and chansiri tells us this....you couldnt make it up at this club.

Ive had enough of football seriously.

My concern is that Bruce might not even come now in light of the above. Even if we release players in the summer it's a new financial tax year. The embargo will already be in place meaning we will lose players and not be able to sign anyone.

 

 

The fa seriously need to take a look at FFP

It's either selling players or more raised ticket prices.

If it's the former , he can't in all good conscience do the latter after his questionnaire regarding maintaining a competitive squad.

The problem?

We haven't even got a competitive squad to start with

 

Bit of a mess eh?

Welcome to Owlstalk DC. Great to have you posting on here.

 

Clarity my hairy arse.

 

Promotion or relegation ?

 

Pay high ticket prices for the best players or crap ones ?

 

Players injured or fallen out with Jos ?

 

The fans money is irrelevant but you want some more ?

 

Make your mind up.

And what has he done to try to achieve promotion sign 1 player for 3 transfer windows and bring in 2 loans one of which never plays.

 

where is the plan for promtion, where is the investment, yes I know it's sat in the stands watching the crap unfold with the rest of us.

 

sell Reach sell Bannan get £20m in,  release half the squad in the summer offload Rhodes,fletcher and Fessi none have done anything for 2 years and let's start again with a team of frees and kids. Where Stuart Gray when you need him.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I'm sure DC regrets signing Abdi, Van Aken, Jones, Rhodes etc however at the time they seemed like decent signings which the majority of us applauded. Rightly or wrongly he rolled the dice in those first 2 years. We are now going to have to take our lumps and start again. No amount of whinging is going to get us out of this situation. Lets see how the next 2 months unfold and then go from there. I'm 99% sure that the 1867 scheme is not the only thing he is considering at the minute. Take a breath and chill, things will work out.

What a stupid post. Clarity was needed 12 months ago. He believes we can go

up this season and is gambling with an embargo based on this, poor leadership. 

 

He tell us there’s going to be an embargo again in the summer and this is the list of players that are out of contact or whose loans end

 

Westwood

Palmer

Jones

Lee

Onomah

Hooper

Matias

Boyd

Abdi

Hitchinson

Hector

Pudil

 

Do people not realise how bad it is going to end up? Next year could be like Blackpool or Portsmouth a few years back.

And for all those saying they are concerned with regards to Bruce....he's signed a contract he will be here 1st February as stated a million times by journalists that are very well connected to him.

There are a few things in that statement that will get people’s backs up,

 

He implied at the fans forum that supporter investment is a drop in the ocean compared to his investment which is true, however he also implied it didn’t make a difference how much fans put in, which you could say is also true given the levels of cash being hemmoraged currently.

 

However he cannot seriously think after he has said all the above that a new fans scheme is going to generate any revenue at all?? I mean seriously why would anyone think that’s the way out of this mess....completely deluded.

 

We are already paying as a fan base some of the highest prices in the EFL to watch an average side with a couple of good players.

 

He has squandered millions, and seems like it was boom or bust over a three year plan with little foresight on year 4 & 5 and what to do if we didn’t go up.

 

The next 18 months are all about staying in this division.

So on the brink of another embargo of his own doing we are to applaud him for trying to sell players. Something he should have been doing constantly for the last few years so we don't even get near to this sort of situation. Are you completely deluded or are you just accept to watch he club in decline thanks to the inability of the chairman to stick to the rules. Honestly some fans baffle me.

How about getting some proper sponsorship on board DC to increase income instead of dodgy D taxis and Elev8. Admirable he wants to put all the money in but it just doesn’t work and we’re in a financial state. Even after that statement he’s still not got a plan, worrying.
