    I thought only tory ministers had such outdated and stereotypical ideas these days? *tuts indignantly*

    Well, the definition of a work-related event has shifted significantly this week so we're in a new era of expectation management now.

    I did read earlier that DePfeffels time at the Spectator had various people saying the working environment was akin to a knocking shop and it was common place to see win bottles scattered everywhere.

    So if you want to profer your PA "skills" somewhere..... ;-)

    You've taken my post too literally - I was picking up on Newsbot's (I'm assuming) shameful misuse of the apostrophe in the OP :D

    We have to submit the questions via BFC's media team, rather than BFCST, so I doubt there's any chance that he won't have advanced notice of them. My bigger concern is with the filtering exercise that will be done internally by BFC on the questions sent into them.

    I’ve been in meetings before when questions were asked at previous meetings with a promise of answers at the next meeting, if the answer was still ‘I haven’t heard’ or bullsh1t excuses were forthcoming the chairman stopped the meeting and told them to go away find the answer and we’d reconvene in an hour - wonderfully awkward but stopped people rolling points from 1 meeting to another.

    Sorry - I might not have been clear. What I meant in my reply was that not a single question sent in to the club, or to the Trust, was left out.

    Dane answered everything put to him and I expect this to be similar.

    I was replying in jest to be honest. Was a joke.

    One question I would be asking is " How do the club expect to cover the loss of the £6 million when we drop to division one & also the further loss of income from vastly reduced number of season ticket sales, being as last seasons play off achievement was seen by the club as failure " ?

    tbf it won't be the first time we've been relegated to league 1. answer to that lies somewhere between offloading players to reduce the wage bill, recruiting from league 2 & non-league, and the fact we probably already pay somewhere close to league 1 wages anyway

    I remember speaking to one of the CEOs about the fact they were putting a standard relegation clause in players contracts so I wonder how much of an impact it would have on wages with this in mind.

    probably not that much. the contracts will probably work both ways. 'stay if you want and take a wage cut, or leave if you get a better offer'

    @Archerfield curated this a couple of weeks ago. The wage bill reduces by about £2 million I think so the reduction clause in their contracts doesn't drop their wages off a cliff but gives us a better starting point.

    Do you remember Mansford having to fight the EFL to maintain wages at 75% of turnover when the rest of the division was at 60%?

    I'm not sure there's such a thing as "league 1 wages". What we can afford in League 1 will be a lot lower than clubs such as Sunderland, and Wigan now they have a new owner.

    We lost £3m last time we went down to League 1, which was covered with money brought into the club from Stones sell on, Hourihane, Bree and Winnall sales. We don't have that luxury now, so the wage bill would need to drop even more than it did in 18/19.

    My question for the CEO would be, "What went wrong?"

    Gut feel is that 'standard' would be 10-25% reduction on relegation to League One. I'd be inclined to think that we might be towards the lower end of this, based on the fact that our Championship wages are much lower than average to begin with.

    League One also has a salary cap from this season, I believe, although I think it's complicated by numerous exemptions for existing contracts, so this is only likely to impact on newly contracts commenced whilst in League One. NB: This is based on something I recall reading at the start of the season, so could be completely off the mark.

    I'm guessing he isn't Christian. So he probably believes in a prophet.
