Villa are going to be in a mess next season already overspent the 2 seasons before plus another 150 odd million this season. I wonder how lenient the FL will be with them. 

It will be interesting to see if the EFL ignore  this blatant Disregard of FFP displayed by Villa

Article in the Athletic this morning saying Morris borrowed £80m from an alleged  crook to buy Pride Park. They really are a horrible club. They are going to be in such a mess next season.

Regardless of mistakes made by Gibson we know he has the money to support us. Only FFP limits how much he can put in

yeah, it's a solid approach, build slowly and limit the risk

That’s great but if it doesn’t work out (let’s not forget that the premier league is incredibly hard and competitive) then very large sections of the fans and some media will scream out the lack of investment/ambition

Wonder when we will hear anything about the Wednesday situation, if there indeed is one? And when will there be a ruling on Wigans appeal? It would be nice to get that done with, so we know what we can count on.

Even if there's nothing inherently wrong with borrowing the money (as far as I know, borrowing/lending happens all the time in business? I don't run a business though so someone please correct me) and there's nothing illegal with this incident (besides the valuation issue) it still goes to show the kind of person Mel Morris is choosing as his bed fellows.

The guy he loaned from is facing up to 15 years in prison for god sake.

Also Derby fans are really trying to convince themselves this is a big ball of nothing (which it might be). Even as far as to say "It may also back up the fair value of the sale price? Why would someone lend Mel £81m if it's only worth £60m...?"

A little bit of walking around money @Brunners 😀

Not sure what world he's worth £80m in, mind.

He's an overrated diver.

The same world in which Jadon Sancho is worth over £100,000,000 and the same world which pays Mesut Ozil £270,000 a week to not give a rat's ass about Arsenal. A very, very wrong world.

i assume you mean 100k a week cause Sancho is definitely worth more than £100,000 as a sale price 😛

D'oh! I meant £100,000,000 as a selling fee, but I forgot some of the zeroes.

Mind you, I should be used to seeing lots of zeroes this season. Goals for, expected goals, marks out of ten...

They have already been cleared by the EFL following promotion. They sold their stadium for 56 million and 30 million was promotion related costs which apparently counts against the deficit however weird that sounds.

But this won’t wash with the more sceptical of the fans. 
 This wasn’t a pop at your idea of how to maintain a clubs stability whilst trying to push for promotion as I agree it’s the golden egg solution of how to do it. Just it’s a tightrope the chairman/financiers need to walk

Tifo football have a really good podcast (roughly 30 minutes long) about the Wigan situation. It's really well explained (better than my long post) and has some newer information about the situation than when I delved into it about a week ago. Have a listen if you can.

Likely to be a lot of nonsense but there's a few rumours on twitter that Sheffield Wednesday may go into administration today. Theres certainly been issues recently such as failing to pay some of the team on time a couple of weeks ago.

Conflicted on who I want to win tonight in the huddersfield vs luton match. If Luton lose then it's almost impossible for them to overtake us. But of huddersfield lose then theres more teams still in danger.

    • I think the Parkinson sacking may bite the Makems in the backside. I assume there is more to the story than just the on field performances, if not they may just have sealed their long term fate in League One for a very long time.
    • Whoever gets it has a job on their hands. Used to be known for bringing local kids through and according to relatives most of the promising kids from the area choose us over them now
    • my late wife met him at a fan convention in Harrogate some years back and she said he came across as a very straightforward guy, spent a considerable time chatting to her and her friend and even got a couple of the other guests (Kenny Baker and Jeremy Bulloch, I think) to do the same. Viewed himself as an ordinary person who'd been lucky in life and was just as happy to send himself up as play serious roles, but took the Green Cross Code very seriously to the extent that he was prouder of that than his role in Star Wars... One of his favourite sketches      
    • I think Bettinelli is a good organiser and engages with his defence. His Goalkeeping ability is average at this level like a lot of other Keepers. I think we have to remember that if he was great he wouldn't be here. When Shay Given came on loan just watching him was a joy and that was including the warm ups where he was aware of the kids walking behind the goal waving flags when he used to tell the players to stop firing practice shots at him in case it hit one of the little ones. Small things but they matter and tell a lot about the man. He always made marks in the turf (probably much to the annoyance of the Groundsmen) so he knew his positioning in the heat of the action and was always exercising to keep warm and alert. Another Keeper I liked was Paul Smith, a comparative nobody in the history of Goalkeeping but I have positive memories of him always giving his best during his short tenure here. Likewise I have good memories of Danny Coyne. I remember when Mark Schwarzer first arrived he was a good Keeper but his kicking was terrible, he struggled to reach the half way line. After the first Summer break something had improved (presumably coaching and practice) immeasurably as the length of his kicks were half as much again after that.   Willie Whigham was a real character, Jim Platt possibly my favourite whilst Steve Pears was probably one of the best in living memory. Keepers, they come and go, some leave positive memories and some like Valdes and Guzan are best forgotten about.
    • You mustn't have been at that game then, that Boro fans felt we had a better chance with ten men tells the true story. He was an absolute liability, appallingly poor, how on earth he had earned a living in the professional game is a mystery. That Villa fans beforehand had nicknamed him "Bad" instead of "Brad" fills in the gaps.
