If we were to offer Hillsborough as a ground share I'm assuming that what ever rent we charge them would count as money in towards FFP or whatever its called these days , if so might be worth looking into especially with the lack of crowds at moment

I'd happily rent Hillsborough out to them. We'd have to be careful on the share deal though. If its with the stadium's company then we won't get any FFP benefit. If they pay SWFC rent that might work.

 

Can also see them trying to ground share with Rotherham.

Would be if we actually owned the stadium.....

As I've said before their owners really don't have much money, no searches tell me that Chien Lee is a billionaire. 

They did a right old trick on the French club they owned, they'll do the same with the dingles given the chance. 

They failed to take over Falkirk I think it was because they couldn't prove they had the finances

I'd rather get hammered with consecutive FFP punishments than give that club any meager lifeline.

Just read up on the French thing, as I had no idea. Makes their moralistic stand on us look quite ridiculous now. People in glass houses and that!

Apparently they are close to an agreement with Burton Road Primary School.

I’ve heard it’s off. They couldn’t guarantee filling the ground when crowds come back!!

Nope, because Sheffield 3 Ltd would be receiving the rent.  We don't own Hillsborough.

Well they have a similar finger scan entry system so I reckon that's a goer.
