They found the money for Rooney.
Not disagreeing with you Jasper. Glad we agree that ‘they’ only ever intended buying the club and making large profits at the expense of reinvesting. Debts to clear now for sure (apparently mind you as no one can see the books). Get to the Premier league and profits made will be mostly pocketed i’m also sure. Hell they might surprise me and pump a whole load of money in to the academy which has proved its worth saving our club at least for the moment it seems. At least the previous regime reinvested any money earned into the playing side of the club on our journey up the leagues. We always broke even or made small profits or losses. We were a model club. That was until they saw their possible personal wealth and shit all over the trust in their haste to get it. C’est la vie!
As much as it would be grand to see our high earners stay and help the Club back to the top,the risk of doing a 'Bolton' should not be forgotten.To be talking about them almost guaranteeing us promotion after only 4 or 5 successful games out of 46,and therefore justifying paying them Premier League wages seems pretty risky to me.
