The relationship as I now see it:

 

The club are only responsible for maintaining rental payments. HK entity responsible for ground maintenance. What happens if the club cannot maintain rental payments? Eviction or repossession?

 

"The club are understood to have to pay the Booths just under £200,000 a year [2004] and the expensive duty to keep Millmoor intact falls on the club, not the landlords. In addition the current directors say the Booths are entitled to what might seem an extraordinary package of privileges for a family no longer in control: about 30 free tickets to every home match, with entertainment; advertising in the ground; and first call on away tickets and even FA Cup final tickets.

In late 2006 the club fell behind with the rent and tried to argue in court that the original agreement undervalued the properties and that the lease was onerous. The case was struck out, the rent was paid, the agreement maintained. "  (Source: The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/football/2008/apr/23/rotherham.leaguetwofootball)

What has the revenue coming into the club got to do with the business that owns the ground? They are by all intents and purposes, completely separate entities. If the club is paying rental for the ground, it could be argued that the landlord has a responsibility to maintain the ground in a satisfactory condition. 

or not depending on the terms of the contract, what actually did the contract between the 2 parties state in relation to 'satisfactory condition''?

Don't suppose there's any chance of some sanity on here is there??

 

Even if it's a teeny weeny miniscule bit of sanity.

 

Even a minimal amount of logical thought (bearing in mind the circumstances) would do.

 

 

I agree. And that has to start with the Chairman first.

Weird outlook.

 

Thank you "Mr Chansiri" for not bankrupting the club - I won't question anything you do as a consequence.

Think we need to get Cheerful Charlie's name on top of the West Stand to cover the Presto up.

As we don't "own" the ground does this mean the owner will throw a bob or too at improving the facilities?

We haven't owned the ground since MM bought the club. DC has owned the ground since he bought the club from MM. The fact that a different DC company from the club company now owns the ground makes no difference whatsoever. I don't think he will spend a penny, mainly because the basis of his wealth is actually with his family and not him personally. Having splashed something like £130m already on the club, the ground, players transfers and subsidising player wages and now buying the ground off himself, I doubt anything significant will be spent. In any case, with COVID-19 preventing any proper return to normal crowds for at least a season, why would he?

Neither because Chansiri owns both entites

The Landlord would use rental monies to borrow capital

You're in the wrong place for sanity. Even a little miniscule bit doesn't exist on here. You know the phrase "you have to be mad to work here". It's same on OT WTF:

No point “questioning” if you’ve already made your mind up.

 

No answer would suffice regardless.

 

You’re not looking for ‘answers’ you’re looking for retribution.

No - I’m saying you can’t absolve him from any criticism on the basis that he hasn’t bankrupted the club.

 

I don’t know what you’re on about regarding “retribution” that doesn’t make sense.

Think if they made all the seats in the ground face away from the pitch that would be a major improvement on my matchday experience.
