You got access to his bank account ?

The very fact he is pushing 10 year season tickets tells me all I need to know.

The state of football.

 

Is it played in the courtroom or the football pitch?

Yeah I'm not sure who it's from 

@Grandad does it say who/where the quote is from? (e.g Barnsley FC)?

 

It wasn't the Barnsley owner who made the quote

 

He (Paul Conway) said "

“People seem to think little old Barnsley will follow the rules and not make a fuss,” Conway told The Athletic.

“If we’ve been wronged as a result of the league not following its own rules, then it stands to reason that we’d go against the league and its TV money and ask them to pay us the difference in revenue. We think that’s fair and we hope it will benefit other clubs who follow the rules and try to develop young talent.

“I’m an American and in American sports, we self-regulate — if someone breaks the rules, they are cheating the rest of us and we take action.

“We went through this two years ago, when we were five minutes from staying up on the last day only for Bolton to win and go above us. Everyone knew they were cheating the system and were hundreds of millions in debt.

“We decided not to do anything about it then but our attitude has changed. Relegation to League One cost us about £7 million in revenue. If something like that happens again, we’ll make a claim and we think we’ll have a strong case. We’re not asking for a change in the rules. We are asking for the rules to be followed.”"

 

The Prince Andrew quote came from another 'club owner - who did not want to be named'

 

So - it definitely wasnt from a fans forum

Given it's unlikely that the 10 year season ticket would generate sales from people who were new customers meaning it could have adverse effects on FFP figures  it suggested cashflow was possibly an issue - the same for the very early early bird. It may also be an attempt to firm up future season ticket sales but it was a strange tactic and a strange deal.

If Chansiri is on the brink as has been suggested then you’d expect him to be looking for an escape route? His recent interview with Doom suggested he was here for the long haul?

 

Then again all these threads descend into whether you’re Pro-Chansiri /Anti-Chansiri  and we haven’t had a good one for a while? 

 

My stance is wait and see. Chansiri has made some good decisions and some not so good and I do think should he stay here then he will have to change some aspects of the way he runs the club? But when all is said and done, it’s up to him and apart from starving of income on a match day which is happening now anyway due to Covid-19, there’s not a lot we can do?

Guessing this was written before the charges were dropped.

 

Who are we in debt to? The owner who pays the players but doesn’t have any money. :duntmatter:
