    Default Saints £57 Million in debt?

    What do you mean "still"?

    We've known the debt situation since the accounts were published in March...

    http://www.saintsfc.co.uk/news/artic...4-2367070.aspx

    It is soft debt to the owner and the company made a £33.4m profit.

    UPDATE: The opening post originally said "still" before a very quick edit left no trace of it

    Just enough to counter income and reduce the tax burden. It's the sensible thing to do.

    Seems to me that this was written buy a 'journalist' who has very little knowledge of the workings of football or business finance in general, read the word 'debt' somewhere in the accounts and pulled out a number without any context surrounding it. #factless (?)

    Just one for headline writers and pompey fans. A basic knowledge of accounting and it's not much of a story, and no big secret.

    Saints are doing just fine financially, but doesn't mean we haven't relied on the owner to get there.

    Figures would also be based on year ending June 2014 (so despite all the references to Ronald in the Fail report, it would be almost completely unrelated to anything he did)

    So why when I make an edit, it says in the post it has been edited, but when IC does it there is no record of an edit having been made?

    If you edit within a few minutes, I find that it doesn't mention the fact that an edit has been made. How long was the timespan here?

    If you edit a post within about 3 minutes of posting, it doesn't leave a note saying an edit has been made.

    Jesus. Is it really worth getting so worked up you have to quote an "independent witness" and explain how edited posts work.

    Instant Classic lied and you took his word in order to turn it against me.

    in my experience of forum software if you edit something before someone has replied or within a certain time frame if nobody has replied it doesn't tend to show an edit.

    if someone posts a reply it usually always shows edit if you commit the edit after the reply.
