Fair play Danny Rose

I find myself agreeing with Danny. Still persistent rumours he will be out this summer though.

Shame if it happens he is better, much better than Davies for me. On his day how many better left backs are ther around realistically? Everton would be such a waste of a move surely.

There’s a lot to question levy on tbf

Sacking Jol and it coming out mid game.

Giving Redknapp Saha & Nielsen when we needed to push on in January.

Selling Berba at last second and replacing with Fraizer Campbell

There’s plenty more but like I say he’s done more good than bad and has finally got it right with poch so now I expect him to back him exactly with what poch wants.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
to be fair that was all a while ago and it looks like he has learnt from each of those...


1. all our dirty laundry is kept behind closed doors
2. we don't invest much in January, but when we do its for quality additions (eg lucas moura this time)
3. we no longer sell players to rival clubs, and we don't sell key players last minute either.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

You must have a seriously short term memory if you have already forgotten Kyle Walker.

Still gutted that he left, but the proof is in the pudding. Seeing him win the double was bittersweet, I just hope that Levy reacts to that and increases the wages and funds to spend a notch or there might be more who want a piece of that.

Levy had gone on about the importance of a new stadium for increased wages in the past. I think we will pay what people want.

posted 1 week, 3 days ago

Yeah I hope so. It doesn’t even have to be all at once; in fact it can’t be as the wage bill can only rise so much without breaching domestic FFP rules. I don’t know the in’s and out’s of Wembley ticket revenue vs stadium hire costs etc, but I’d be shocked if we couldn’t afford to pay an extra £15m in wages next season.

posted 1 week, 3 days ago

That's what I think.

I also think that when the new stadium funding plan was put in place, we weren't anywhere near close to being a regular top 4 side. The revenue is probably a lot higher than Levy projected, meaning we wont be as effected by new stadium costs.

Agreed. I’d imagine we’d have forecasts for the last 3 seasons both with and without qualifying for the CL, so the fact that we’ve managed to continue to qualify in all 3 seasons would be more than the club expected.

I can’t be facked to calculate the average, but having a quick browse of this would indicate that our league attendances alone are double what we had in our final season at WHL, so the Wembley outgoings would have to be huge to take away a considerable amount of the additional income.

Just found it actually...

Didn’t they always say that NWHL was based without qualifying for CL and all estimates made re:income were on the conservative side. i.e. sensible thinking.

So the position we are in now is a bonus

posted 1 week, 3 days ago

Would have been business sense to budget for both possibilities. Either way we’ve achieved more than was expected.

Don is right. The new stadium is a business decision. Match day sales account 20% of clubs total income.
Levy, being a part owner gets that right.
But building a CL team of professional players competes for outgoing expenditures. And Levy wants to cap those -has said so many times.
That puts Pochettino in a bind. He really needs talent in some positions.
But Levy wants to play a market game that results in him picking up last minute players - sometimes that other clubs like PSG want to off load. And he sometimes still makes expensive mistakes too - like Sissoko.
I hope Levy will change his ideas.
But I fear he will not, and I'll bet that Pochettino will leave.
If he does, I'll wish him damned good luck, wherever he goes.
