    Fans owned club

    I 100% agree with this. Best example for me is Man United, there were loads of people up in arms at the Glazer takeover in 2005, setting up FC United etc - which all largely died down or got ignored at least when they carried on winning titles under Fergie, signed Ronaldo and Rooney, and won...

    I think it'd be pretty hard to argue that Wimbledon aren't successful mate.

    Why?

    Yeh I get that as a concern, but if you hedge your bets you'll probably be ok. You don't whack all of your funds on one single player, you get a few and then move them on. If I had a £1m transfer fee fund, I'd probably look to invest in 4 or 5 promising players, and if one or two come off...

    Why?

    http://www.financialfairplay.co.uk/scmp.php I'm not au fait with the rules, but it ultimately depends on what turnover is defined as, and the limit for that is only wages, not transfer fees. The link above isn't also really clear on what raising capital through loans would be classed as, so it...

    Why?

    So what I meant, and I expect TB understood, is that we basically have no debts atm. Our main expenses are basically salaries. No-one at the club is on a long term lucrative contract, so if our income does/has collapse as you suggested, then we'll basically have a smaller budget to to sign a...

    Why?

    I'm not talking about Scally ploughing money he doesn't have, I'm talking about taking out loans etc from the bank to act as an investment pool, which you then invest in players on the basis that their values will go up. For example, if you invested £1m (all in) on about four players with...

    Why?

    My concern with Scally generally is that he's now shot shy. When he arrived, he speculated to accumulate, and it worked fantastically well for about 8 seasons. When it worked well, the entire league operated differently, ffs we bought SBT and Sarbs in the same summer for a total £1.1m, which...

    TBH I don't really believe Root's account. The fact he said "I don't recall" screams of a solicitor advising him what to say. He was in a rock and a hard place frankly, if he says, yes I heard that etc, then he will be under fire for not acting etc, especially given he previously used his...

    Of course it can, but ffs it's a pretty severe error that shouldn't really be happening.

    Cheers mate, I had covid pretty badly a few weeks ago, so was off this site for the best part of a month, and really didn't miss it. Remember the days when it was jokes about the location of the Queen's Head?

    I reported it for the overt racism it was.

    “Rooty is a good man, he’s never engaged in racist language. “[But] I found [his comments] hurtful. He was Gary’s flatmate. He was involved in social nights out during which I was called a ****. He might not remember [the incidents of racism] but it shows how normal it was that even a good man...

    Joe Root has literally not being accused of anything. Rafiq even said in the questioning that he was a good bloke. Pay a fucking tention
