CountryRoyal Every one describing their work makes them all sound so self important. Ok then rockstars.
CountryRoyalHound and I made some of it up anyway

Wallsy Gourlay really did do a job on us. Vastly inflated wage bill and a big drop in player sales.
Brain Traysers 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 might do a Sudoku. He has the kudos of owning an English football club, the possibility of owning a Premiership football club and not much of a downside.
Whether there is anything shady the ownership (in terms of extracting money from China) seems unlikely as I understand the Chinese have clamped down on it, but who knows whether there is an 'angle'. With the Russians it didn't take much to find dodgy connections, the Thai's seemed to be looking for an entry into wider UK business but the Chinese seem to be what they seem to be so far....
Hound Tbf we’d likely make a very big profit on Moore, Swift, Meite, Barrow and Yiadom if we did sell
If we’d sold Moore for 10m last year when we could it’d blown your argument away a little
The players we got rid of it we didn’t make a profit on because they were rubbish generally. We jut haven’t sold the ones who turned out well
And it’s certainly not just inflation. Moore worth 10* what we paid. Meite, Yiadom and Swift were free
