TBF if they sit in the South Stand and pay our prices that’s quite an income stream. 

 

Never thought of it that way mate. :Chansiri:

That's different to a loan, where we would have to pay up front what we owed to Middlesborough and would have an effect on FFP.

 

Not if we backdated Rhodes sale to 2018, because we made a profit that year with the stadium sale.

How Wednesday are missing out! It's time they got rid of Monk, Chansiri (don't know how much that would cost given he /his wife owns club lock stock and barrel), at least half the playing staff, and even the Stewards. These could be immediately replaced by OT posters who could do an excellent job, and know all the rules pertaining to FFP or whatever it is called.

Oops. I forgot the £millions that need investing, but whatever..

Sorry if posted elsewhere.

I've just read that a deal was agreed for them to take Rhodes on loan until the end of the season, they were paying his wages in full, at the last minute Chansiri demanded a £1m fee and that was the end of that.

Rhoades will now sit out the remainder of the season on huge wages that could have been spent elsewhere.

And we wonder why we are financial fizzed.

Incompetence of the highest order.

 

If that's true then...............................................................................................................

This unfounded baseless rumour should've got more than 5 pages by now.

Tbf, it doesn't take a footballing genius to reach the conclusion that we are not particularly well run. 

 

Chansiri has spent up to 150 odd million? Bar the initial upturn, we are now no better than before he came here. 

 

For the investment he has put in, we should be in the Prem or at the very least knocking on the door. 

 

An inability to buy/sell at the right time (he can't even buy his own stadium at the right time) has cost us and will continue to do so until he pulls his head out of his own backside.

Perhaps we needed the 1m fee or we would have been worse off in terms of FFP for this season. In regards to what we owe Boro for him.

 

We are stupid. But are we that stupid. Clearly Monk would have said he wasnt going to play what with all the strikers we signed.

 

I just think before we all have another pop at the club. We should probably know all the facts.

 

are you new to owlstalk ?

we don't wait to know the facts on here, Facts are for wimps 

We like to dive straight into the rumour on here and become judge jury and executioner and preferably within 3 pages so we can use the following pages to either hammer the person who started the thread or each other depending what side of the post you side with 

lol

I love how red top newspapers (particularly The Sun) are knocked from pillar to post for not exactly printing the truth but as soon as they put a spurious football story out some (5 pages worth) take it as gospel, bizarre.

Can't see how letting a striker, on around 40k a week, go on loan for six months can actually make our FFP position worse, however you look at it. IMO just another one of DCs rather eccentric decisions, that goes alongside refusing to sell Hirst for nigh on 2 million and then freezing him out of the U23s and losing him for a pittance. Bonkers!

Indeed, and the “we’re a family so don’t sell players” policy is a strange one specifically when you have strict FFP constraints that you don’t want to mess with.

It says all agreed then, we asked for a 1m loan fee. So to me that says someone has reminded him of the loss we make on Rhodes if he leaves on the cheap. Or they thought ok he is out the door then thought why should we post a loss on him this season when we can keep him and be better off.

 

There are players here where Monk would have said to Chansiri, look they aren't in my plans get what you can for them. Rhodes, Winnall and as we have now learnt Westwood. Surprisingly enough all the players linked with moves away.  So unless the offers were look we want theses players for free or for next to nothing then there is no reason to say no and get money in when we need it.

I think you are getting confused how is keeping a player and paying his wages for the rest of the season better for us than getting another team to pay his wages.

 

Forget the account mess, we need to cut outgoings if we can find teams to take players we are not playing and pay their wages either in part or full then that is a good thing not a bad thing.

The Rhodes article came from a Scottish newspaper not the Sun so not sure if they just copied the story to fil a bit of space.

 

Look we keep saying these stories are not true but how many of these sorts of stories need to come out before people start realising, the amount of stories all with the same we asked for a silly fee, we ask for a loan fee, we asked for his full wages to be paid, sure every news source cannot be making these things up because our chairman has not confirmed it.

I would probably agree, except for DC's track record of making crazy decisions that have actually put us in our present financial predicament.

Only interest Rhodes has had was Norwich wanting to take him on a free in summer
