    He was offered to Newcastle last month so I'm guessing any kind of ban is now served,mate.

    Come to think of it the CFO role is going to be MASSIVELY important for us with FFP.

    We are going to have to push that to the very limit whilst never crossing it (or crossing it in a way they can creatively explain...).

    Think it's more likely that she'd simply complete her duties up to the end of the month and then go. Accountants like clean cut-off days.

    was banned for 4 months from March 2020 - so he's been able to play all this season

    I really didn't know too much about him to be honest mate. I'd actually forgotten about him until last month when Sky Sports showed an montage of players celebrations and he was on doing that arm thing. Though he'd retired.

    Its a sensible move, we're steadily being taken under the wing of the Dreyfus stable, and organisation that knows how to be successful in its business operations, I feel more optimistic with every announcement I hear , its just feels like they're getting our house in order.

    I obviously have no idea if we are after him. It would make little sense to me especially with Stewart nearing fitness. However he's clearly got good pedigree and would surely be good at this level.

    However nobody has taken a punt on him all season so I'm guessing he's either not fit or demanding ridiculous wages. And whilst we now have money and the ability to spend money, I don't really want KLD wasting his hard earned trust fund on pension pots for players who won't give a **** if we go up or not.

    We've got to believe we're a bit more savvy than that. The days of our club picking up journeymen at the end of their careers just looking for a final pay day are surely over under this regime.

    His wages alone would dwarf the squads combined most likely?? If so I don't think they'd be up for that

    I would hope they are. But that’s been our business model for so long now that that’s what we’re used to. And likewise most sports journalists will also look to spuriously link has beens and never weres’ because they haven’t taken the time to actually look at what KLD is trying to achieve here or how he intends to do it.

    Journalists are always filling column inches with ****e...particularly the lazy ones.It's an unavoidable suffering for most of us.
    It's results on the pitch that'll wake them up to what's happening here.
    Until they start to notice it,between us on this Board,we have more than enough little grey cells to sort the wheat from the chaff,and to wait for them to catch up.When it does finally dawn on them,they'll present it as though they've had a St Bernadette-like vision,but in reality,they'll simply be playing catch up to those of us who've already worked it out and are miles ahead of them.<laugh>

    So your for the game is affected by 30 seconds of people kneeling down? Could just close your eyes? Football is affected by politics and the real world.
