ZipOilroyal Although it seems a pitiful situation, Dai and his sister have not been shy in bank rolling the club since May 2018, rightly or wrongly. And according to Jose they continue to be motivated to plough more money in to help improve our position, although current FFP rules prevent them from doing so.
They have continued to push ahead with Bearwood, as this investment falls outside of FFP rules. Ploughing more money in even with a huge operating loss, shows commitment.
I have a feeling the owners and those now making the decisions will again be creative and get 3 or 4 very decent loan players in for next season, as well as a couple of frees on sustainable contracts. Not being able to do anything until July 1st also gives them time to work on moving players out; McNulty, Popa, Kelly, Mayler and a few others. Get through 19/20 season and we’ll have a clean FFP slate, a new training facility and owners who have proved to be financially supportive, only this time around they will be a lot wiser due to mistakes they and those before them have made.
I’m looking forward to next season and watching an honest group of players playing for the club and fans… It will make a nice bloody change.
Good post. Perhaps our owners were a little naive allowing Gourlay so much control but overall they have backed the club to the hilt and deserve a lot more than they have had back.
Yes, a good positive post
I agree, get through the season and things will look a lot brighter. Big contracts (Meyler, GMac,Gunter, Popa, Mannone) will have come to an end along with a number of others. Young players with a year of champ experience. New training ground, room in FFP to sensibly invest
We’ve still got a solid enough team if we can plug a few gaps this year. It’s not all doom and gloom
