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.

let them, explain the reasons behind the approach and tell them it's in the best interest of the club

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.

    • Just seen them and thought exactly the same. What is the point in the 2nd and 3rd kit as it contains same colours as the home kit?
    • Internationally for us it's until the 5th of October and then an additional 11 days of a domestic only transfer window afterwards running until 16th October. For me we'd be mad to let our glaring needs wait until even mid September though that's why I think it's good Warnock's not waiting around. Been quietly a newsy day on the transfer front for us a name to cross off, a new name's popped up and status of bids clarified by clubs we seem busy at least. Jackett has said they've received no bids for Alex Bass quashing that link down a bit. Morgan Fox is set for stoke. No bids received by Northampton have met their valuation for Goode, Echo say Boro sense silly games afoot and unwilling to enter a bidding war for him. Boro and QPR have agreed terms with Spurs for Luke Amos (nominal fee around 500k)
    • "Guys, we really need to decide on the colour scheme for our away and third choice kits, Puma said we've got an hour until the deadline"    
    • Bristol City doing a boro and going with Dean holden- big call that
    • Probably not footballing wise although didnt he give Ravanelli a black eye leading up to the FA Cup final.  I do remember him scoring against Liverpool in my first game I went to at the Riverside which we won 2-1.
