    If we were to be promoted.... "IF"... would the club still be available to purchase for £50 million, bearing in mind he never came into this to make a profit...

    Probably asking a rhetorical question?

    IF they were true to their word (that all they want back is the 'supposed' 50 million remaining debt) there would be a damn long line of prospective owners knocking down their door at the end of May (or are we going up by auto?!). .

    My IF is even bigger than yours..

    It's the hope.....

    50mil plus 10mil for a new striker is still a fairly decent price for a club that's knocking on the door of the Prem.

    Sorry, but it's not. The evidence is the fact that no one is buying us (assuming the Allams really do want to sell ....hmmn).
    Bowen 20 mill. Others 10 mill maybe. Sell Bowen, sell the others, then there's nothing left. So you'd be paying 20 mill for nothing other than a field with a glorified portacabin, a loss making football club with an SMC that needs funding too.
    I still can't see us getting promotion, so 'knocking on the door' is pretty much worthless.
    If 50 mill and 10 mill for a new striker was good value, we'd have been bought a long time ago.

    BTW, what's happened to the sell on monies? Shouldn't that by now have reduced the supposed 50 mill debt?

    He's an obstinate, hard-headed and reasonably successful old man.

    Why do people expect him to change ?

    His steaming excrement is the usual dung.

    Pity many on this thread respond in kind.

    Something better change..

    Did you know that one of the words misspelt most often is misspelt?

    Noticeable when you played someone brought a coach full of fans then the next game someone like Sunderland brought dozens of coaches and the crowd went up by about 50 or 60. Though sometimes they brought that many they couldn’t manipulate the figures. Now it is all about the brand which is why the include everyone with a ticket not there and Arsenal, Man Utd etc declare capacity crowds though there are swathes of empty seats.
    The police released the figures for people going through the turnstiles for Old Trafford the other year, which is what they use to base future policing requirements on. Though the Man Utd figures showed a full house for every game only one league game, Liverpool had over 70,000 and the lowest was 58,000 for Southampton. The only game every seat was actually full was a champions League one which has a slightly reduced one because of UEFA seating restrictions.

    That phrase is up along my wife’s often repeated words of wisdom to me “ you don’t need to drink to enjoy yourself” for incorrectness.

    At a guess, the sell on monies are funding the day to day bills. The same pot any future transfer fees end up in.

    It doesn't matter whether any buyer pays 50 million, or 50p. As you say, they are buying a loss making club. And the SMC. A most attractive proposition, not.

    How many football clubs do make a profit?? I’m sure the top 6 in the premier league make a profit.

    I bet 90% of all other clubs are loss making....

    OLM or someone will have the facts

    Not necessarily. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/jun/06/premier-league-finances-club-guide-2016-17

    O
    f course things change. A year later Man Utd, for example, posted a loss due to creative bookkeeping, some clubs went up others down. Burnley continued to make a profit which some so called big clubs didn’t.
    Interesting seeing the figures for the Championship last season. We had the lowest percentage of wages as a proportion of revenue after Barnsley. We also had the lowest commercial earnings after Barnsley despite having business geniuses in charge. No doubt if they had got the name change we would be the highest.(Imagine sarcasm emoji). Surprisingly, after Leeds and Aston Villa, the third highest for commercial revenue was little ol’ Norwich which meant despite having the 3rd or 4th highest wage bill they had the third lowest wages to revenue.
    Which means, seeing as they didn’t bring in a load of players on highest wages or spend money on transfers if they go down they will be, like Burnley were when they went down, in a strong position to go back up and stay there,

    Yes, all bar a handful are loss making. Some shovel money onto the bonfire that is promotion to the land of plenty. The very one City visited and are more or less back were we started. As opposed to staving off winding up orders and a similar amount in guarantees, they want their 50 million back.

    They blew the chance to sell for the price they want a few years ago.

    I started reading that with interest. But the second I read the age-old bollocks about Hull City Tigers I ended up headbutting my desk and couldn't even bring myself to finish reading the rest.
