Waddock would be an annoyingly good appointment. Perfectly capable of taking them into the play offs next season, you'd think.

 

Agreed.

 

The Conference play-offs that is. He's got great experience having got Aldershot out of non-league, plus Tubbs scored for fun at that level with Crawley.

Trousers you bitter green-eyed scummah, they were absolutely fine back then and fully solvent! :x

 

It was only when the child-maimer got a bit unlucky on the world markets that things went slightly awry, not that he owned the club illegally or anything like that.

And there was definitely no problem before the FA Cup theft, or the win at St Marys, other than the odd administration.

So the new company gets to keep ALL of the results of the four previous companies and just loses the odd £100M of debt here and there - same as we did, same as Chelsea and Man Utd have.

And if they do have to pay off another manager the parachute payments will cover it cos they is ringfenced.

for once Idont agree with your assessment, they were in the mire under Mandaric,

It was in the media that they were £150 min debt. MM was very clever to get rid then. I do hope he does not return when he sells Sheff Wed

The biggest fan 'owned' club, lauded across the land as the beacon of how fans want to be connected to the club, a community club. They wouldn't 'sell' it to MM or anyone, that would never happen.

The liehberr's bought the "club" and immediately pinned £27m worth of loans to scum. When the "club" advanced towards the PL they converted the loan to shares. Two things about this.

 

Firstly when running up a further £25m of operating losses to get to the PL, had this investment gone belly up you lot would have been left high and dry the same as we were by Gaydemake and Chanari.

 

Secondly they converted the loan to shares just before securing promotion to the PL to get the maximum return. That is the shares would soon be were worth more that the loans so they converted them for their own benefit. They have not acted for the good of the "club" but in manner that protects themselves and maximises there return. This is their reason for buying and remaining at scum.

 

My main point is that since being in the Premier League the club have made clear that they will not entertain the Europa League. Last year when you played Sunderland you had absolutely nothing to gain or lose in the PL being marooned in 8th place with a stack load of points between both 7th and 9th. Still the reserves were put out and a genuine chance of success gone west. Why? because the owners don't want to risk Europa League football which will either require a bigger squad or likely to have an adverse effect on PL prize money returns. This season near full strength teams have been put out but Keoman let the cat out the bag when he said that scum "needed to be seen to be taking the competition seriously". Clearly you are not.

 

Yes, they have invested in the academy but they have not returned to the first team squad or the club the money they have brought in. There is a reserve which, if it hasn't been already, it will be returned to the Liebherr's in the form of a dividend before the club is sold.

 

If they left tomorrow they would have left you in a better financial but they would not sell the club tomorrow. Before any sale it is clear (as was seen last summer when i personally believe the club was on the brink of sale) they would sell the family jewels and clear out the bank account first. What is more they will leave you with the same number of major trophies in the cabinet. Please don't be fooled; they are not at scum for the good of the club, the community, the youth academy and certainly not to win any trophies. They are there to make money and that is the top and bottom of it. That means no prospect of winning a trophy as it makes no money or, more precisely, risks far more significant sums of PL prize money.

 

So I return to my point... It's all fine and well having money but if you're owners are only geared to making money there is in the current structure no prospect of such clubs striving to win a trophy. With no intention of actually winning any trophies what is the point of being a football club? The harsh reality is, like Newcastle and Villa, you exist to sit in mid-table and collect premier league prize money whilst costs are kept to a minimum and fans taken for as much as they are prepared to be bled for. You are so welcome to it cause even though we sit at the bottom of the 4th Division, I sleep comfortably knowing that the 4:1 ratio of major trophy wins in our favour will remain for as long as the Liehberr's are in charge.

 

You "club" is not not football clubs because it no longer strives to be the best football club it can be; only to make money. You want to back a soulless corporate whore and line the pockets of our friendly jolly foreigners then be my guest.... the last laugh is on you!

All that Liebherr stuff is a relief, I thought we got outplayed by Sheffield United and Palace but it now appears that we deliberately lost those games.

I've also learned that apparently the laugh is on us. :(

Which has made me all jealous.

 

And I've just checked the glorious history of the business that operates from Fratton Park.

Formed 2013.

Best league finish - 13th League Two.

 

 

But on a positive note it's those little gems of delusion that fuel this thread, you forget how thick some of them are - go on tell me more about the dock strike and your shares...

I was being a bit tongue in cheek Nick, MM would need more than Robinson's share to get a sale but it would be funny after all what was said if they revert back to the old ownership model.

Yes, but even a story about a cat stuck up a tree would have been more worthwhile than a video with all the production value of a primary school project.

 

Edit - they could, for example, be writing a story about the missing accounts.....

He sort of has a point, but also misses the point. I am certain the Liebherr's are in it to make money (or at the very least, not lose it), but that is not necessarily wrong . (It's no wonder they don't get it, given their history). Making money usually goes with success. Reaching the Champion's League would be successful in football and financial terms. I have never had a problem supporting a well-run club, living within its means, as it pushes forwards.

I think at the moment, when look at the tables, that the last laugh might just be on them.
