  1. Boo Hoo……….. I don’t hear this financial version of crying spouted from any other Football Club apart from West Ham……….even the notoriously bad Mike Ashley had enough common-sense to fund transfers at Newcastle without bursting into tears…… Suck it up or get out of the business GSB.

  2. Tottenham & Arsenal are because they financed their grounds, we bagged 45m.
    The rest for us is to GS.
    Man U American crooks.

  3. How the hell did this lot become businessmen?.the lack of activity in this window has become a joke.Just watch what happens.no signings then panic and bring on board free agents on mega wages as usual.Could not run a bath never mind this football club.

  4. But but But but I thought they were spending their kids inheritance?

    Surely that is not yet another lie and in fact any money they have ‘put in’ to the club is earning them more interest than any banK would be paying?
