Isn't there a sliding scale somewhere from the payout of Broadcasting fights money?

If so, every place matters. 

In which case, were Forest to overtake us, because their opponents Bolton were forced to fulfil the fixture by playing their youth team, could we sue for loss of earnings?

it just makes you wonder where we've might have finished if we'd not appointed Dross in the first place and got SB in much sooner had he'd been available.:tango:

This season for me was always about the rebuild this summer and still is. Anything else was a bonus.

 

More interested in the shape of the club financially and squad next season.

9th/10th is about right for this squad and I'd have taken it in August after the calamity transfer window, hopefully we can make the additions to take us back into being a top 6 side next season.

finishing 9th or 13th doesn't really make any difference does it

bar people whose had bets ,do people really care

 

I do.

 

FInishing as high as possible is the whole point of the league. After the first half of the season when we looked more likely to be in danger of relegation, finishing in the top 9 or 10 would be quite satisfying.

I hope we do finish 9th.

 

I think it would say alot about the progress we have made in such a short time and something the coaching team and players could be proud of considering where we were when Jos left.

I said 12th at season start.

 

Not far away.

 

Either way. Lots to look forward to next season.

Difference is twelfth would have been a miracle with a full season of JL and a disaster with a full season of SB.

No.

All teams in the championship get the same amount of money for competing regardless of finishing position. The amount of TV money received is different for all clubs and depends on how many times you hosted a game on TV and played away at games that are on TV and depending on whether them games were played midweek or on Sunday or Saturday. There are other factors as well but these are the main ones.

True.Oh we were sinking all right. One of the oddest calender years I can remember. I'd love to know the ins and out and what was going on behind the scenes, because something must have been. So many things just seem so bizarre.  

 

Yes, I think Bruce will have us heading in the right direction. 

Just hope we give him time because there's bound to be some bumps un the road with all the rebuilding that needs doing.

Soooo 9th to 13th it is then. 

Brissle result tonite 9th is best we can do. I’d take that and say from bad bad start we had a great achievement.

so imo QPR a must win. 

13th n bottom half although be only a few points difference doesn’t seem that great even though just had a fantastic run since Dross. 

13th n be a few people gutted who had top half finish bet. 

I cashed in after losing to villa knowing had few tough games coming up. 

Anyone  else cash in or got plenty to come. 

I also cashed in for same reason, waiting on Brentford

9th is a must, top ten finish after a dismal first half of the season is good.

If this is true you need to drop SB a few quid.

After we lost to Blackburn and Swansea before Christmas I'd have been happy with 9th to bottom never mind top. 

 

I was seriously fearing relegation.

Don't follow that ,we wasted half a season not picking players etc and still may finish 9th 

Surely that makes it a better squad than 9/10th

Not that it matters now

Not really, it's a squad that's shown over the last 2 seasons it's no where near consistent enough and has been lacking in certain areas for 4 seasons now. It's not as good a squad as the one that finished 4th, players have aged and have been crocked, and some have been badly managed. Bruce has worked wonders and the new manager bounce has been fantastic, let's hope we can get going quick next season as ultimately it's that that costs us every season.
