  1. This stuff does male me proud but I wonder how many of the rest sit 1 point above relegation Sean?

    Making a serious point and not meant as a negative, more a discussion point. Based on this and the teams around, are we as supporters really setting our sights too high to have top 7-8 aspirations year on year? Or are we mismanaged?

    • Given what they have to play with, probably not too much wrong with the coaches, AD.

      If you extend management to the Owners, then, yes, mismanaged in the extreme.

      The biggest mismanagement was moving to a 55-60k stadium, highly unfit for purpose, and with the delusion our fan BASE really is anything like that number. Reducing the admission prices to accommodate that number is an absolute con given the add-on income once they are ‘captured’, in and around the ground,

  2. Success, at last!

    Coupled with being in the top 20 richest clubs (by revenue), never let it be said we follow a duff club, whose owners are only in it for personal gain and need to remove THEIR heads from OUR backsides.

    • Must have been the same over the previous 60 years. It’s a bloody business = of course they are in it for gain …are you in yours? What is wrong with you. Football is not a ****ing charity

  3. Put it this way; at least games involving us are entertaining!

  4. My calculation shows that while we shipped in the most goals .. Villa actually performed worse than us during the seasons they spent in the Prem.. we averaged 1.52 goals a game and Villa 1.62 a game …
    Remembering those early days at London Stadium when we let in 13 in 3 games really brings a tear to my eye… 😃 COYI

  5. Seems like the real problem to be addressed was the defense and not the 40 odd forwards they have acquired in the ten years.
    Hugh – No one is disputing the fact of them making money ,but when you put it into context,I think we are one of three clubs that have owners charging interest on their loans!
    There was talk before Christmas of the owners deferring £40m loan+ interest repayment due to them – I suspect that will come very close to having got back all their investment + interest!
    Do you honestly think that wanting £500-£600m for the club is A) Outrageous and B) Probably the main reason there is no interest in the club?

    • I’m not good on finance but the the cash in football is extraordinary potentially and PL clubs are no longer being bought – people are looking at the Championship and take them up
