Recommended Posts

Was this statement originally posted on Chansiri's MySpace page at 2am? We've got the most emo chairman in football.

I haven’t seen Bielsa’s press conference but gave you a LOL anyway Hooky. lol

 

Been busy these last few evenings reading about Disclosure, our need to fight aliens in outer space with advanced technology that can traverse galaxies, and that we’ve had for years, and Trump’s pending indictment of 60,000 Shadow Government operatives who are in bed with the lizard aliens including the Clintons

 

All fascinating stuff.

 

I think Neil needs to up his game with this site to compete.

Hahaha, been entertaining myself with that too Owlsman. I had no idea whatsoever about pizzagate until a few days ago. But one of the best is, "house of Windsor and the New World Order. " lol  It has more twists and is ten times more entertaining than Game of Thrones, ffs. Recommended viewing with a spliff and a bottle of JJ.

Not heard it called 'togger' for absolutely yonks.

 

 

 

That's the problem with the modern game. Too many of the good words have been lost.

For every 'togger' that has been consigned to the history books a new terrible phrase or word has entered in it's place.

The dreaful "Presser" being top of my hate list.

And of course, the awful, nauseating .... "baller" and "tekkers"

Two questions:

 

If you were the chairman of a club entering financial difficulty and a transfer embargo...

and another team offered you £2m for an unproven youth striker who you don't think is worth their demanded £xk per week contract,..

 

Wouldn't you just sell him?!

 

If you were the chairman of a club entering financial difficulty and a transfer embargo...

and you have players on substantial contracts not getting game time,,,

 

Wouldn't you sanction their sales or loans?!

 

I'm sure there are reasons to say 'No' to both, but I'm struggling to think of any right now.

What a carry-on. 

 

The chairman's latest drunken rant is published and then the following day we are linked with a winger from Fulham. 

 

Oh, and Agnew says no one is going. 

 

Ths club.

If his parent club wanted to off load him I very much doubt they'd be asking top dollar in wages from a club that could potentially take him off their hands if the loan is a success, I'm sure also we wouldn't have bought in a loan player who was earning £5k more than the highest earner at the club.

I don't know we did when we signed Jordon Rhodes on loan initially and we paid a loan fee for him. With the Owls currently anything is possible.

And that's why I want fans to be able to by voting shares.

 

I'm not funding Abdi or Doyen again.

It wasn't a loan in the usual sense, it was a full deal that was called a loan to defer the payment, it was always a full transfer other than in name.

The thing with shares and voting rights is not straight forward though. Often only certain aspects of a companies dealings can be voted on and having more shares gives a bigger entitlement regarding votes.

 

What is a Voting Right

A voting right is the right of shareholders to vote on matters of corporate policy, including decisions on the makeup of the board of directors, issuing securities, initiating corporate actions and making substantial changes in the corporation's operations. It is common for shareholders to voice their vote by proxy by mailing in their response or by relinquishing their vote to a third party. Unlike the single vote right that individuals commonly possess in democratic governments, the number of votes a shareholder has corresponds to the number of shares he or she owns.

Total and utter over simplified nonsense, there's bar staff, security, cooks (unless this wholesale food cooks itself), cleaners, waiters, the food is eaten in the main suites not the boxes so you have about 50 tables to dress etc. There's a drinks allowance with anything over settled on the day.

You obviously are not aware how it works. For a start they now eat in the box's served by one waitress. The drinks allowance is £75 between 10 people that doesn't go far at hotel prices. Security, cooks and waiting staff are already there being paid so no extra wages. They just have to work harder for a change.

Why are they already there? If there were no boxes they wouldn't be needed, strange. Our company had a box up to the relegation season (last game v Palace) but I've not been in one since DC took over.

About 7/8 of the box's are being utilised on match day. Because of the lack of tacke up they are now being sold as one off matches and also the community side use them. Believe me the staff are not stretched on the 3rd floor match day but there is limited activity.

Yes, hindsight is a wonderful thing.

 

If we had won the play off final all would have been rosy.

 

But it's what happened after the playoff final that I'm talking about. All fine to that point aye! We spent a few quid, got some real quality in but it wasn't out of control. 

 

Not hindsight really, I believed at the time that DC was a sensible fella, he was on it and had finances under control. Always seemed a bit mad to spend that much on one player (Rhodes) but if we can afford it... why not? Ah right because it turns out we can't actually afford it :duntmatter:

The Bruce??...Thats the bit that baffles me a little bit...

If what DC is saying is the whole factual situation at the club, and he doesn't come across to me as someone who deliberately tells untruths...maybe someone who overcompensates for failures a bit, dresses them up in a coat of excuses....but..If what he has told us...he has told Steve Bruce...What does Steve Bruce see as the attraction in taking over the reins?

He's hardly "rushed" into the job, for well publicised reasons, but these valid reasons would also be fair enough he said...

"I'm flattered by Wednesdays interest , but its too early to etc etc etc"

So what has attracted Steve bruce to the job?...Its gotta be summat a little more magnetic than the doomsday scenario we all expect hasn't it?

Agnew must wonder what he has got himself into. Already throwing the nowt to do with me lines, at least Bruce can answer them, oh wait no he cant.
