yeah, I dunno, feels like about a coin flip to me.

villa are dead as dead can be, the mackems a good halfway there, the barcodes, yeah, there are certainly enough relatively weak teams down there to give them hope but, yeah, it won't be easy for them.

Would love to see them go down this year. Brady, Gold and Sullivan are three of the biggest cunts around.

Millwall one of the clubs I dislike the most, obviously, but what's been happening to them lately - if anyone's been following it - is outrageous. Basically a load of their land was due to be compulsorily purchased for development and the chief exec of Lewisham had an interest in the development. Anyway, following a number of questions and investigations, the plan has gone tits up. Good.

Kind of ironic of course that they were campaigning to stay in Lewisham when they were originally from Millwall itself, north of the river.

Meanwhile, Everton involved in some ownership sharp practices.

15/16 Accounts as reported by Hay. £9 loss on the year.

£9 doesn't sound so bad, £9m on the other hand...

I've read the article now, doesn't sound too bad all in really. Take the exceptional one off out of it and then remember 16-17 will include the sale of Cook we're probably quite close to being sustainable. There's still a lot of overheads given our low wage to turnover ratio (relative to others) but then, for the most part those others seem to have been posting hefty losses (I think, now actually been paying too much attention aside from the odd tweet I've seen). Of course, 16-17 accounts could say anything given they include a takeover.

There's also the tweets from Hay, one of which shows (I think) page 38 of the accounts, which outlines the bonuses to be paid upon reaching the Prem. Think I saw £10m in there!

Yeah, I don't like Millwall much as, well, Millwall, but the few Millwall fans I have known have mostly been alright. My daughter's step-dad, for one, being an Oxbridge law graduate, is hardly the typical 'Wall fan. The blokes who used to fix my car, a Greek family who all support the 'Wall, are sound chaps. Danny Baker seems alright an' all, though I don't actually know him. The throat-slitting gesturing cunts are obviously filth, but, well, a lot of their fans do seem like ordinary S.E. London folk. Glad that particular move against them seem stop be foundering. Never want to go back there, though - except in the cup, playing our reserves, who stuff them 4-0.

This is reasonably interesting regarding how players are accounted for. Relevent in context of the long deals we handed out last summer and new contracts for existing players:


As far as I can see it doesn't go on to the downside in year 2 onwards if sales don't continue at the same or higher value season on season.

I suppose the best time then to sign a Ronaldo type is during kit deal negotiations. Will immediately translate into money up front.

This Gordon Taylor thing is mental.

His salary is much higher than the pfa's total spend on 'charitable activities'. Over 100 ex players are in prison (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... reers.html), many more down on their luck in various ways (alcohol, Alzheimer's, etc).

Time (many years ago) to get rid.

It’s like the slimy fuck has looked at current players’ pay and thought ‘Yeah, I should be getting some of that’.

Prick.

A wonderful thread here on the Harry Redknapp effect on Birmingham's finances last season. 71% wage bill increase and £5m in year impact on transfer fees at a club which made a £16m loss the year before (pushing £40m loss last season). Why is he allowed to keep doing this?!
