    Good, not that they'll care but its nice to get more press on what ****s they are. Im guessing theres no interest in anyone buying the club atm?

    What was that thing in the Yorkshire post all about Mr Webster finding us a new owner? What was the point in it?

    I wish Ms. Beercock well in her search for a new job.

    To show that somebody has been chosen to sell the club.

    Numbering parking bays totally threw him. He's never had to count that high before.

    Anyway, he has inherited wealth, he'll do what he likes.

    Who on earth would want to buy a business run into the ground for 4 years by these two conmen?

    And even if they wanted to buy, how long before they realise they have to negotiate with dishonest and deceitful people who continually alter the price or description of what's being offered?

    The longer Adkins stays and has to lie to cover up for his bosses, the less respect he will get.

    The same applies to Vicky Beercock. Get some integrity and resign. STOP TRYING TO PULL THE WOOL OVER THE EYES OF THE FANS, IT WON'T WORK.

    What has remained surprisingly transparent throughout this entire ordeal is this, which I will put in the form of a question:

    Why would the owners be focusing so hard on making the club self-sustaining (something they would do if they are staying long term) for the foreseeable and not reliant on their money, when they are simultaneously looking to sell the club to, presumably, somebody who would want to invest money anyway?

    Either they are trying to make us self sufficient, in which case they are sticking around because self sufficiency would only benefit them long term given how long it would take, or they are trying to sell us, in which case the need for self sufficiency is negated entirely as we don't know what a new owner would want to do.

    It's bollocks. It can't be both, so the only logical solution is that this 'self sufficiency' line has been put out as a reason why they aren't spending any money to appease some of the dimmer fans. Because, short term, it's better to spend money and get us promoted and reap the benefits of the Premier League and, if we cock up, another two years of parachute money, than it would be to put no money in and struggle along after the parachute money has dried up.

    Claiming you're making the club self-sufficient is just an excuse for not spending any money.

    Do you think FFP has anything to do with it?

    I think you will find Slutsky was our greatest ever manager, Champions League and national team manager.

    Nah, we’re nowhere near the FFP threshold.

    Claims of ' self-sufficiency' are a nod to the 70's sitcom the ''Good Life' and the horse-**** they peddle on and off the pitch
