  1. I notice Gibson has only started moaning about this now the unfair parachute payments to his team have stopped.

    Who stays, who goes at S6.

    I’m 100% sure KW will be with us next season, I would consider bids for FF though.

    Owls transfer rumours 2019/20

    Mmmmm not sure about that one, of the loanees we had last season he seemed a lesser one and had a lot of injuries.

    The price of football tickets

    United have had an owner for 20yrs that has bankrolled them, he's sold any players of any value just to keep the club runnning, the Owls had years of bad financial decisions that alnost sent the club bust, it was rumoured we were losing £5m a year when DC took over, something had to change. Incidentaly I don't disagree with the fact that the POG prices are too high but there are plenty options not to pay it, I rarely do.

    The price of football tickets

    The football under Jos was dreadful thats the main reason crowds were down, they'll be back up next season with the same prices if we are competing at the top. You can't compare Premier to Championship on ticket prices, they have many more revenue streams so can afford to charge less.

    The only bias in this thread is from you. United have had fire sales of players much to the fans disgust for years not sure what happened to the Brooks money but cash was borrowed from a third party for player purchases, after years of mistakes McCabe struck lucky with Wilder, no more no less.

    How is is a massive casualty when crowd numbers are up on pre DC years? How can it be financially stable when he said in court that he had to put his own money in to stop its demise, that isn't and has never been financial stability no matter how you dress it up, he admiited he had to dig in his own pocket just to pay staff wages.

    I agree with all of that, thanks for confirming but don't go spouting about your affordable ticket prices when it was clearly a business model built on sand. SWFC were pretty much in the same boat pre Chansiri but had no one to bail them out.

    Surely the players we have now in comparison to then are worth the extra, the last season under SG was awful.

    Its was £28 under MM, most matches now are £33 for POG. Depends how many matches you intend to go to in a season, if its the majority then yes.

    Why did we get less than 21k (around 11-12k) ST holders when Milan Manderic was chairman, your arguments don't stack up.

    So what if you have an owner that hasn't got that sort of money to put in? If its part and parcel why has McCabe said under oath that he no longer wants to plug the financial blackhole, surely if its "part and parcel" it shouldn't be a surprise.

    I'm saying that Uniteds ticket pricing was not sustainable, if McCabe had not put his own money in they would have been in trouble, the word demise was mentioned in court. I agree £33 is too expensive but only a very small percentage of the crowd will pay that, 21K season ticket holders certainly dont.

    So why did McCabe in the High Court state that he could no longer sustain plugging a financial blackhole and he had to pump money in to stop the club going into embargo?

    Where does the majority of revenue come from for Championship teams in that case? Uniteds certainly wasn't sensible as the "financial blackhole" was constantly being plugged by the owner to the tune of £70m it was totally unsustainable.

    I agree it is dull in places, its totally carried by the music and Live Aid finale.

    It doesn't make the Wednesday/Leeds ticket prices look ridiculous when you consider the facts that the teams you mention in the Premier League get huge revenue from TV rights and don't actually really need ticket money whilst the EFL force clubs to spend only what they raise in revenue with the ridiculous FFP rules.

    Plug venue closing/sold on.

    This rumour was doing the rounds months ago but its still open for business.

    The price of football tickets

    POG amounts to so little of a percentage of attendees that it hardly factors, when cheaper tickets have been offered POG numbers have not significantly improved, crowds numbers are up on pre-Chansiri days so your argument is flawed. What other clubs, Leeds are very expensive and others have parachute payments to offset ticket costs.

    The price of football tickets

    Hardly anyone buys POG as the majority are sensible enough to buy membership cards or season tickets, crowds are down because of the quality of football prior to Bruce, there were over 26k at the last game v QPR with nothing to play for and high POG prices. Blame the EFL's rulings that clubs have to bring in more revenue for the problem.

    Dejphon Chansiri to buy Hillsborough?

    Agreed they are two of the worst signings in our history, can't see Bruce making that sort of mistake.

    If the alleged bribes/money laundering is proved to be true the League could come down very heavily on the proper old fashioned family club.
  23. What was going on in the boardroom makes it even more of an acheivement, well done that man.

    Fair comment but surely if your bringing an investor in you check out their credentials, it doesn't really affect the Telegraph if they get it wrong.
