    Pigs and us….

    The way a Club is being run has everything to do with the fans as it reflects on our success or failure and profile in the game. Whilst Kevin McCabes intentions may have been honourable it is clear his management style was archiac and it reflected on his poor business acumen where football...

    Pigs and us….

    The shambles saw us progress to a Court case where neither party was putting any money into the Club and we were days away from a transfer embargo. Employees were dismissed at the whim of the owner because he didn't like them not because of their ability. In one case one had his money stopped...

    Pigs and us….

    When PA first took sole charge there was an energy about him probably because we'd just been promoted to the EPL. That seems to have gone now as the downward spiral of the last 18 months shows no sign of abating. It was a sign of intent to appoint SJ on possibly the highest contract in the...

    Pigs and us….

    Will never give up on the Blades its in my DNA, my Dads RIP and now my daughters. As a long standing season ticket holder with business experience I'll continue to question where I feel the Club is going wrong. We are on a downward trajectory again in the usual SUFC Boom bust cycle. Money talks...

    United 0 Coventry 0 - report

    Well at least yesterday confirmed the players are equally crap playing 3-5-2 and its the players who are the problem more than the manager. Back to last seasons style of play that relegated us and keeping with it will do the same this season. 1 corner all game at Home. 1 effort on goal in anger...

    United World

    United World is a great concept when you are a billionaire. PA doesn't have the financial clout on his own to develop it whilst SUFC remain in the Championship. He needs more investment but whether that will be forthcoming remains to the seen. In the short term he has to develop his main asset...

    United World

    The Athletic article is under the heading " The championship for sale" where they attempt to list each clubs financial state and rank in order those clubs that in their opinion may need new owners. Its not exclusive to SUFC. I agree its Hemminghams opinion but its hardly ground breaking news...

    United World

    Yorkshire Live once again stirring the pot and then admitting PA is actually after investment and not looking to sell.

    SACK SLAV

    Far too sensible a post amongst the raft of hysteria sweeping social media at the moment. The problem is the Board thought Heckingbottom did well when he lost 8 of his 11 games!! and were lulled into believing this set of serial losers were capable of going back up without a lot being spent...

    Exit strategies for our dross

    Agree with most of that although I thought Stevens was one of the better players last night. The problem is no-one is likely to take the dross and we are looking at considerable losses that will seriously impact on the clubs ability to do business in the JTW and Summer. I said when SJ came in I...

    Only 2k away tickets for Oakwell

    Dingles are skint and their ground is crumbling with the closure of the West Stand to-day. Seems the issue with allocation is they can't afford to pay for additional stewards when the away following is large. Florist paid for some of their own stewards recently to attend and got an additional...

    RIP Charles Henry a Blade

    My Dad passed away peacefully on Saturday aged 96 in the Care Home. Charles Henry were his first 2 names. I spoke about him before on the D day thread. He was there for his country on 6 June 1944 on Sword Beach. An orphan from Nottingham he'd joined up in 1943 at the age of 17. In 1946 whilst...

Last years its estimated our turnover was significantly down to £97 million with increased wage and costs to £90 million...

    Save the Blades!

    If you're going to post a rant at least get your facts right. 1. No evidence in Club accounts the Prince has taken £40 million out of the Club or a bonus for that matter. 2. We haven't sold 30,000 season tickets its just under 21,000. 3. The parachute payment we get this year is £45m not...
