As pissed off as we were with JR's experiment of free agents?

Let's not forget Bramall and Watson were both on the board during "The Experiment". It didn't solely come from Ryan.

But everybody says they ain't 'football men' so it couldn't possibly have come from them, could it?

Viking Chat / Signed Polo T shirt
« Last post by Donnywolf on Today at 02:54:04 pm »
Just spotted a Large T shirt complete with Tabs etc for. £5 in Barnardos Armthorpe


There are 2 Barnardos there and Shirt is is small one next to where deebees shop was


No idea whose the Signature is and no number as a clue. If I was guessing (I am ) I would say Cameron John ... But it's unworn , clean and worth a Fiver unless it's the shop Managers autograph

Remind me again how much Brentford will be getting next season, bfyp?

Lots indeed.  But if you want to be Brentford how many clubs can risk a £41.5m wage budget. Is that seriously what you'd want us to do?

To add to that Bournemouth had a wage bill of £58m that year and didn't get promoted. In the premier League their wage bill was over £100m. They probably spent not far off on wages in a week what we spend in a year. Staggering figures.

I’ve lost track of how much money that PL clubs get from sky these days, is it around £160m.
If it is then I think a wage bill of £41.5m isn’t too extreme.
I wouldn’t be too concerned if Rovers were in their position.

Would you be worried in Derby's position to name but one?:

Baz we won’t that’s the point I’m making our owner will not risk spending that money and that’s his choice but using teams like Derby to make a point is wrong we would never be in that position with the current owner.

My concern is not all based round money. But our Chairman says we will bounce back decisively now is that based on his knowledge of the transfer market and funds required or is he relying on GMC and Copps to bring in players that will get us back to league one with the funds we have left after the 16+ players that are already contracted.  I’m not sure I have the confidence that we can do that. We will see the level of player we bring in. But saying we will overspend that will definitely won’t happen.

All well and good but say that takes 3 years to gain promotion. You've a £25-30m a year cash gap to bridge.  Assume 4-5% interest on that debt adds another £1.5m ish.  Over 3 seasons that's £100m in cash and that's assuming break even on transfer fees.  Even then you may not make it (these numbers not far off what Sheffield Wednesday were relegated with).

So to have a go, do you know anyone with a spare £100m+ to gamble?

You're also not getting that money back ever, promotion is fine but as In Bournemouth's place that £100m needs to be spent to even have a sniff.

I believe the National lge have set a precedent for final playoffs being at the highest placed teams ground.
For Boston this would have been great to have been held at a neutral ground such as the Keepmoat.
York’s ground only holds 8000. There simply will not be enough tickets to meet demand.
This is a match that would interest neutrals too.
York will want home advantage of course.

Our owner has the money he chooses only to spend through Club Doncaster what is required to help us be self sufficient.
Like BB has said whether we have reached that level we will see next season.
It’s up to him what he does with his money not me and he will never spend like other clubs to put us in danger so why people keep saying it to make a point is wrong.

How the he'll do you know what his net wealth is tied up in and has the ready cash to put in should he choose to do so?

JR couldn't afford to carry on and be self sustaining yet. Obviously for him it wasn't sustainable yet, TB doesn't seem to get much credit for maintaining the sustainability of the club and putting in far more than JR did. .

And this baloney about Brentford and Bournemouth. Don't make me laugh. They were lucky that they were chosen by Billionaires who were prepared to gamble in a massive way considering the level of support for each club respectively.  It's a complete false economy and their success has nothing to do with how many supporters they can draw through the turnstiles and isn't a real representation of their history, their struggles and the community the football club supposed to represent.

Until such time someone else comes along, the club has to continue where the money that you and I put in matters. Just as it did during JRs tenure.
