SeaJack:Couldnt agree more. I can’t believe the government hasn’t banned them all from TV. I know it’ll never happen though, because the betting industry has too many fingers in the tax pie. Never mind we’ve got a nice big sponsorship deal out of it, so that’s ok isn’t it????
Correct me if I’m wrong but, by my recollections the club was in the black to the tune of a whacking great £50mil in our first season in the top flight. That figure doesn’t include the amounts for the sales of players and compo for Brendan Rogers before we embarked on our second season. The money already there to sustain the club was augmented handsomely by these sales so how on Earth it went from one extreme to another in a relatively short space of time is quite staggering. All this before even introducing the TV money into the mix at the end of the first season. I’ve never got my head around the disappearance of that healthy £50mil nest egg that the club was sitting on when the final whistle blew on that Wembley play off final.
Not the racist bomb again. No one ever wins in these arguments. The rich Arabs Coming to rescue us, is probably all bollocks by Jenkins anyway. A ploy to take the heat off his duplicitous arse, before the Trust do.
