Like I said previously, we’ll soon find out…
I know what you mean, there's not much precedent for it in recent years to give you confidence. We've been canny in our buying but it's been on a strict budget, I don't think we'd make any daft sales but we don't really know at this point in the window.
Really hope that is true as it is a sign that we are kicking on. If the club then pull a rabbit out of the hat for a replacement then that is further proof that the data side is working
That sentence says it all. Neil has clearly improved him and we've reaped the benefits. He seems to have taught him to keep things simple, not try to beat a man twice and just gets his head up and picks a pass. He's a good asset defensively and when he keeps things simple going forward he's a real team player as well as being creative.
This isn't unique to SAFC or the takeover thread, seems ubiquitous online. Feels like ~20% of people (online) are so insular they genuinely can't believe anything ever happens.
You bumped into a footballer, or whoever really, in the street and had a chat, even near their training ground or something? Plenty just can't believe it.
"Had a chat? **** off, didn't happen."
11pm and someone will be lurking on here so they can post that you're lying and nothing's happening ...
... there's a weird clique who are desperate for things to remain as they are.
It's so they can be Sid James in 'Carry on Moaning'
It's not defence of him loads do not know how close we were to being bust.
It's a defence of them 2 initially stopped the rot.
We were ****ed mate, hemorrhaged money for 5 years,
It became apparent when Short stopped the cheques, contractors like us did not get paid for months for work we had done for the club, they came in and paid about 40 suppliers their money.
That's when they realised how bad the finances were.
I was owed over £11, 000.00 that to my business was a lot of money.
So pardon me if I don't jump on the bandwagon because what they did was get me paid.
Things change mate.
I'm sorry its early, what's that referring to ?
It would be nearer 10, IMHO.
Also this Tory scumbag crap, what's it got to do with footy loads up north voted Tory in the last election.
Is everyone who voted tory a scumbag ?
There would be no point in selling him for 4 or 5 million as we couldnt replace him with that amount of money. Start talking at £10 million
They do. I was told yday that it's still ongoing and it's one. Let's see.
I wish it was just done
Don't we all mate. Everyone wants this done. It's sort of like a bad smell, lingering about.
Usually if something stinks you just find the cause of it and remove it. This is like a rat has died under your floorboards, you know its there somewhere but you cant quite just get to it to get rid
No doubt about it. The interest is real from rangers. I know a scout up there too, who used to be at Sunderland.
Data backs it all up. Involved in more chance creation than any player at the club and 99% of other players in the league.
Quite interesting to hear that. I’m not saying they shouldn’t sell up as I’m sure Charlie and Stewart would agree their time had a natural lifespan at the club but if it was as bad as you say tough things had to be done to keep the club afloat, it explains why other stuff like cosmetic and youth players had to be sacrificed.
They should never ever be forgiven for their fire sale of any youth talent. Generational talent sold for peanuts. Disgrace.
If Bobs right though we were close to folding.
