    To be fair , I have never said anything about transfers because I don't have insider info. This time I have a small amount of info from someonewith contacts at the other club, who i believe. If it turns out I'm wrong, I'll happily say so.

    It is all about making money. Fans are most important, but no money = no good players = no success = potentially no club

    How on earth can you say that after what that guy did for this club??? HE saved it so YOU could go and watch the team every week of the season...

    If you haven't got that sort of money then shut the feck up. HE put HIS money in to keep three club going, and is entitled to have it back.

    Simple...

    Absolutely, but if we had no money, we'd have no good players and no on-field success; and many fans would stop going if we fell through the leagues. It's all linked

    I don't understand what's not to understand about that statement. It's pure common sense to me.

    Many clubs right now don't need any fans to attend games

    Making money for pc? He is probably owed about £9m as the share subscription account was converted to loan. The amount written off by pc over the years and therefore not repayable totals in the region of £4-5m. Pc does not take dividends or remuneration and unless he changes that policy the only was I can see him making money is if his shares become more attractive to a prospective purchaser

    Didnt he say he wanted £8 million if we ever went up to the flight to cover what he had put in if he sold the club to new owners? That was around the time of the Italians interest.

    In the last 9 months Mawson' transfer fee, Hourihane, Bree, Roberts, Holgates appearance money should be also due, Mawson's possible sell on fee, record gate receipts for the 16/17 season, promotion to the Championship kitty. We've spent a small fraction of that.

    Take your money out Pat, we should still have plenty left, especially if it's in instalments
