OFFICIAL CLUB STATEMENT (clickbait title)


Recommended Posts

Or instead of investing millions in our own academy we could recruit relatively cheaply from the massive PL academies, develop and sell on for profit.

A bit like the FDB situation but with the “develop and sell on for profit” part included rather than “sign and never see again”.

Not even a tin of emulsion and a roller 

 

 

 

Got a big tarpaulin sheet on the back of the West Stand with an Owl with titts, what's up wi thi?

Hey, could be the infamous Teet Owl?

 

If Chansiri came out with that statement it would go a long way to reassuring a lot of our fan base but he would have to also concede he has made mistakes and is still wanting to learn while not blaming supporters. 

This would then be a true Carlsberg moment.

Middlewood to ex -Norton Aerodrome = Cat 1 Academy 

 

And self - funding , as latter in green belt so relatively cheap.

 

Would now getting housing on our current traing ground , so £25 million as lease is 118 years.

But seriously, why hasn't that bloody Presto Stand logo on the roof still not been painted over? 

 

I seem to remember it being mentioned before at a fan forum, and the excuse being that they couldn't do it for health and safety reasons because there wasn't enough time between games or summat. We haven't had a home game for almost 10 months now...

Be patient not just with me, as I continue to learn what makes a quality chairman. But be patient with our young players who will be the future of our club. Encourage them, don't berate them when they make a mistake

 

 

Pity the poor sap who as to manage them while they learn.......

Once complete, the next phase will be the replacement of the Kop with an identical structure.

Nope...it is unique and timeless. We CAN redevelop it but it needs to stay the shape it is

OFFICIAL CLUB STATEMENT 

 

Fellow Owls

 

We are in difficult seas. Our problems with FFP are well documented, and the remainder of the season will reveal whether that will threaten our Championship status.

Regardless of whether that status will be maintained, it is clear that our clubs approach is unsustainable given the current rules of FFP, which incorrectly favour clubs with parachute payments. We will continue to challenge that rule, but also recognise there are other factors that must change in order for us to re-establish this great club in the Premier League, a goal which I'm sure we all share.

 

FFP rules do not prevent us from investment in our academy, or our stadium. I'm today announcing a change of direction for our club.

 

We will purpose build a new academy, and it will be the best in Yorkshire. We will invest in new pitches, accommodation and leisure facilities that will make our academy one of the very best in the country in order to attract the best prospects from all over the UK.

 

We will invest heavily in our scouting infrastructure, not just in Britain but overseas.

 

And we will develop the players to deliver our goal, to supplement the first team players we will continue to invest in within the FFP guidelines.

 

In addition, today I'm announcing that the entire West Stand structure will be demolished this summer and replaced with a new purpose built modern stand to accommodate home fans. This stand will be one of the most modern built in the region and will be the first phase in a redevelopment of Hillsborough to ready it for our return to the Premier League. Once complete, the next phase will be the replacement of the Kop with an identical structure.

 

All of the above investment will have no impact on our clubs FFP calculation, but we believe it will demonstrate our firm long term commitment to the future of our club.

 

This process will not be an overnight success. I hope you will be patient with us while we deliver it, and continue to be the very best supporters you can be.

 

Be patient not just with me, as I continue to learn what makes a quality chairman. But be patient with our young players who will be the future of our club. Encourage them, don't berate them when they make a mistake

 

Together, we can all work together to deliver our future as a long term addition to the Premier League

 

But divided, it is unlikely we will ever return

 

(what I wish) Dejphon Chansiri (would say)

Cheers Paxo

The point is

 

As a club we can invest on both those major items that would improve our club without it affecting FFP.

 

And yet. We havent.

 

"We have an email from the EFL saying they won't let us do that, despite the actual rules. Promise!"

What makes you think it won’t affect FFP? I am sure it’s the business as a whole and not just players wages that count.

Sad thing is that could’ve been his opening statement after taking over from Mandaric.

 

He could’ve upgraded the Stadium and Academy then, and we’d be starting to reap the rewards now. He’d probably have more cash left in the piggy bank than he currently does too.

But how will any of that help football agents get more fees for organising unnecessary transfers for the players on their books?
