I've told my Blunt mates that Chansiri has found a loop hole that wipes out our debt and gives us a massive transfer kitty, it's cooking the books and a bit dodgy, but the football league can't do anything about it because it's not strictly cheating, although it really is.

 

They've all left the chat

 

Pretty sure they are firing emails off

 

"Well let me tell you Football League"

 

 

Which thread in the dressing room is this Hoots?

the Brexit /Corbyn or Conservative leader thread ?

Who honestly knows...

 

It'll wind up United fans though, no doubt.

The whole point of FFP was to make it a level playing field so teams without much money could compete. 

They did seem to forget about parachute payments with thinking up these rules though.

Whilst I completely disagree with FFP, this is where people get confused.

 

it was never about being fair.

 

It was an ill thought out scheme to stop clubs going into Admin and by and large, it’s worked in that respect.

Maybe a debt for equity swap ahead of a sale...

 

That would be a major plot twist

 

a debt for equity swap is often done in preparation for selling to another company 

 

WTF:

Would selling the ground not reduce our shares? As oppose to doubling them?

Selling the ground would have no impact on the number of shares whatsoever.

Thought the whole point of FFP was to prevent clubs all building up massive debt gambling on the PL dream and being forced into adminstration.

Since the FFP rules, going into admin has become quite rare, so it’s achieved it’s aims but it’s stifling genuine ambition

and traditional PL clubs (bigger clubs) are finding it harder to regain their natural level.

Why is it called financial fair play then?

You are probably right. But we was also told the lie that it was to help the smaller clubs compete as you could go and spend whatever you wanted to win the league.

That's why they changed it to P&S.

What because they realised it wasn't actually fair.

Personally I think a sale of the club is a distinct possibility in the near future as I think deep down the Chairman is frustrated with things in general particularly the P&S rules and he obviously expected promotion to the Premier League before now so I can see him engineering an exit before long?

Was the same but only two were blades.  Hate to say it but both were nice lads.  Must have been our influence. lol

So, I guess you shouldn't mess with Bruce. Glad some things been done because at last we got a proven manager and it seemed like he couldn't spend anything cos of previous managers and agents, etc. Had a feeling Bruce meant business when he came here. So, can we now get all the defenders and wingers? Where's that sought after 250 defender list? lol 

Probably been binned given Van Aken was deemed the best one on it.
