The revenue generated from player sales over the last 5 seasons chart shlws all our issues. 

 

When people say... 'why can club X spend so much money'... well look what theyve also generated.

This is just one chart of many, which point to the complete mismanagement of our club. From top to bottom.

But let's all call DC a genius, for creating fake companies to sponsor the team, allowing him to put more money in... I'm actually sick of hearing that justification. Nothing about how this club has been run can be justified.

 

Well-intentioned, probably. Wholly inept, absolutely.

We judge players by what they do on the pitch, we judge managers by how they get their team to perform, shouldn't we be judging DC by similar metric?

Just in case you weren't sick of thinking about how much he's ballsed up this club, there are "subtle" reminders throughout Hillsborough of who's responsible for this mess. But hey, at least that allowed him to put more money in than any other sponsor would...

that really is pathetic from the club. So unprofessional from DC. He really has got us in to a proper mess. Awful business leadership.

I have always said, that the time a club usually moves forward is when it is able to sell players at a profit.  Profit which we can then be reinvested back into the squad.  

 

I think we have two significant problems, both of which are interlinked.  The ability to scout decent up and coming players and knowing when to sell and for how much.  

 

You only have to look at the list of all the players we have signed to get an idea of our recruitment strategy.  What used to wind me up was seeing players get signed then don't get anywhere near the first team for the foreseeable future.  I just don't get the reasoning behind a lot of our signings.

Absolute scandal to be so low.

Saying that been this way for years never really been a selling club from my memory.

Problem is can you imagine the uproar on here if 3 years ago we had sold Bannan, Lee etc, proper meltdown.

If we sold Bannan, Lee for good money and brought in new blood, who knows where we might have been?

Leeds have sold Wood, Jansson and Roofe in the last few years who were all fan favourites. They seem to have coped alright?

 

Our record sale before Lucas João was still Chris Brunt

Clubs have sold players to balance books since professional football began.

Sure some people would have moaned if a popular player was moved on but vast majority realise that is what clubs do.

Best priced 10/1 for relegation now, does someone know something we don’t?

 

Given our current form, if the betting industry had got new of our points deduction I would be surprised if it was any higher than 9 points based on this.

 

If they had news we were going to get deducted 9 or more points then I would have expected our odds to be shorter than 10-1 as that would put us right in the mix with no sign of the next win.

The owners biggest mistake by far was not selling Forestieri when it was all kicking off,  the fan base would’ve absolutely imploded but we needed a big decision from the owner and unfortunately he lacked the football expertise to make the right call

Birmingham have sold Che Adams and have Drew Bellingham who’s going to be the next big thing, they’ll be alright.

 

We have nothing in comparison.

 

We have a 'valid' ground sale. The question is over the year of sale, not the sale itself. If we lose the case then surely the ground sale is put in the following years accounts and we are OK P&S wise for a couple if years?

Disagree a bit there R.D., since the same fan base were collectively demanding the signing of Rhodes and he duly obliged........ It works both ways!

Thought this myself. Would it be in our interest For the ground sale to be for a later date (assuming that we aren’t effectively relegated and fined heavily).

Probably wouldn't have been in such a state now. If we had sold, when our better players were of value and replaced them with players on the rise or strengthened areas and attributes, we clearly lacked in after Wembley. On the other hand, would we have reinvested wisely what we could have got for them at the time? We've been directionless and leaderless, in so many areas on and off the pitch. We need to be much more sensible and forward thinking over the coming years or we'll keep making the same mistakes and regressing.
