Re: Explain like I'm five: our FFP crisis

And of course, the financial clusterfcuk of 2017/18 is exacerbated this season by the fact we made a profit in 2016/16 which mitigated against it last season but is now off the books for FFP. The other issue is that we don’t know what the loss is going to be in 18/19. A bloated squad won’t have hel...

Re: Explain like I'm five: our FFP crisis

I presume we can't just sell Bearwood to a third party, pay a peppercorn rent for 2 years then buy it back for the same price and write it off against FFP as an Academy expenditure?

I suppose if we could, everyone would already be doing it.

Re: Explain like I'm five: our FFP crisis

until season 2017/18 is out of the three year FFP calculations money will be tight. So, if we somehow survive this season, the situation should ease. At the moment though, there are signs that we could be 2019/2020s Ipswich. Yes because 20/21 will only matter alongside 2018/19 and 2019/20. Next sea...

Re: SPECULATION - Martinez?

Whatever happens with Martinez, I hope Gomes settles on a definite first choice keeper. Don't want to see us chopin and changing or the season might unravel.

Re: Rival Watch

Never really understood the clamour from our fans for Elphick...played 3/4 games max and in one of them we conceded 4 goals at home to a bang average Ipswich team (not forgetting all 4 went in on the half Elphick played) Have you forgotten how bad we were that season? I think it was a mixture of wi...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Never liked PSG. The ultimate manufactured rich man's plaything football club. Ajax were winning the European Cup the season PSG were created.

Re: The Forest is Green!

Apparently one of the objections was the noise levels being a disruption to local residents.

Was it being built next to a bat colony?

Re: One for HNA? refs - offside or not?

I thought the linos were meant to keep their flags down until the player becomes active as no offence has been caused prior to the player being active. IMO, if the lino initially raises his flag, he's indicating an active player and he can't reverse it when the defender touches the ball because, by ...

Re: Celtic Eye Moore

Initially, I misunderstood Seth who was talking about their Championship winning team in 2014. He made 30 appearances that season. He certainly didn't get a Premier League medal because you have to play a minimum number of games.

Re: Celtic Eye Moore

I think from a footballing perspective, Celtic have a hell of a lot more to offer than us; European football, decent chance of silverware, playing in front of 50,000+ every other week, a level if exposure a world away from 90 seconds around 9:30 every Saturday night on Quest etc, etc. However, that...

Re: Fixtures for 2018/2019

Festival weekend is 4th weekend in St there's a good chance we will be at home on the opening weekend, assuming there's no midweek league fixtures before then.

I think Sutekh will be shocked at how much the fixture list for 2018/19 will be like last season's.

Re: Fixtures for 2018/2019

Can't wait for the 2018/19 fixtures to be released.

My bet is an opening fixture at home to Derby.
