    I'm currently having an argument on Pork Talk.

    They're convinced the payments began in 2006. I beg to differ, as I'm pretty sure we were in receipt of them after our one year in the Greed League.

    Anybody help to confirm either way?

    Thanks.

    They were nowhere near the size they are now, but we received them until 2000. That's why everything went down the shitter after the play off defeat.

    from wiki

    The Premier League distributes a small portion of its television revenue to clubs that are relegated from the league in the form of "parachute payments". Starting with the 2006–07 season, these payments are in the amount of £6.5 million over the club's first two seasons in lower leagues, although this rose to £11.2 million per year for clubs relegated in 2007–2008.

    That statement in no way proves it started in 2006. We got them, but it was only something like a £1m a year.

    I like how they (want to) believe that there was some morality behind the fact that they never went into admin and waited eleven years to write off all that debt.

    exactly,,and the 'club' never wrote off the debt,'arrys mate did,i've read an article on line where howard wilkinson says how close they were to going bust,,,and without milan they'd be well and truely shafted...
    then the fans are there going on about it like nothings wrong......david hirst was on the telly earlier on this season saying how they tried to keep up with the jones' and how it very nearly went wrong....they've been a very lucky club..their fans just wont have it tho'...30 million is the figure they owed according to a bbc website.
