Re: Financial Fair Play

I really wonder what is in it for the current owners. I guess when you are so ridiculously wealthy that it doesn't matter then you can do stuff that doesn't make financial sense. Perhaps Dai Yongge is one of these compulsive business men who just likes taking on a challenge much like some of us mig...

Re: Spaculation Henri Lansbury

Heard through the grapevine, Henri Lansbury is being offered out from Villa on a 2 year loan and we maybe suitors. Apparently doesn't fit into plans at Villa and there are 2 or 3 ahead of him. If Villa get promoted his wages increase to nearly 60k a week due to bonuses. he is being touted to clubs ...

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Haven't we basically outsourced the old DofF role ? Not sure have we, is this through this agent we now have links with?? No, it's Kia Jaroobchian who by all accounts brought the loan players in and has been involved in other ways too. Would not be surprised to hear he ended up taking a stake in th...

Things I have learnt from the software development trenches (1) Clients are idiots (2) Project managers are idiots (3) Migration is always shit, (4) It's never obvious how badly shit the migration is until it's too late (5) Clients and project managers think migration should be straightforward.

Re: Speculation: New manager

Say José Gomes goes, who would you want to bring in as a replacement. Chris Hughton could be a shout Surely Hughton will they WBA or Boro jobs. The whole Gomes thing seems very sketchy so speculating who might replace him if he happens to move seems very premature. If the Yongge’s decide to sell wh...

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Edit: add in how well he worked all of the loanees and U23’s into a failing team and like I say, he’s the complete package. That was good fortune. Let's see how he does at the beginning of next season. Particularly if the next crop of loanees (i.e. Steve Clarke era) don't work out so well. If that ...

Re: Dare to dream?

would be delighted to get Martinez but think a solid centre back pairing (ie Miazga) and solid midfield (ie Baker) are at least as important.
One at a time.....

If you are moving huge amounts of data, yes. If you are just setting up contact details and pointing to an old account reference, no. You'd be amazed tmesis, you'd be amazed.

Re: Value the Squad

Have just re-read the O.P. and it has led to some mildly interesting discussion. I think the views of Pete on values are in many instances way off beam. I think he has failed to take into account that our squad consists of players just above Div 1 level and that is how they and our club is perceive...

Re: Rival Watch

yep which I think also is roughly my point. They weren't massively different (up to .5 of a year different) from the likes of us, Norwich, Preston or Brentford. I've little doubt (though again without checking) that their squad prob cost a fair bit more as well I think the difference is the spread ...

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

I'm going to renew my seat, but not yet - no point paying up sooner than I need to. Maybe the club could be a bit more like Amazon, Take orders now and take the money when they actually ship the goods. This will give them an early indication of the income they can expect rather than having to wait ...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Only thing about the Maff piece which i agree is a useful read is the sale of the stadium. The profit on the sale is not the proceeds, which was £26.5m (page 12 of annual accounts) The profit from the stadium sale is the proceeds of £26.5 m less the net book value of the stadium, which was £20m.
