Why Do We Bother?
Posted 15 Jun 2007 - 15:45
I am getting really pissed off that clubs like above seem to be having the potential edge over us with regards to cash & what do we hear from our beloved club?? FUCKALL!!! AS EVER!!! Kenwright you have taken us so far but pleeeeeeeeeeeease if you cannot take us the step further (without moving us out of OUR City) will you please leave your ego at the stage door and sell up to someone who can!!!

It is frustrating that we have not signed anyone yet, but we have been critisised for telling the world our business and been gazumped at the 11th hour
We are now doing busness in a business like manner.
One thing is for certain YOUR DAMED IF YOU DO AND DAMED IF YOU DONT
Blackburn, Birmingham & even Sunderland with more money / aspirations than us
Who have they signed?

then when we still finish mid table and the clus is saddled with debt and players who hate each other, maybe a few of you will see how good BK is for the club
im amazed that people think money = instant success
newcastle have been spending large amounts of money on a yearly basis and what have they won ?? sweet fa.
why the hell do people think that west ham, villa, birmingham and blackburn will be world beaters just because they have a few pennies to spend ? its not about buying high value players, its about buying the right players for the club.
italian teams, this comment is aimed at lazio parma fiorentina and roma, spent zillions in the late 90s and won fuck all. those clubs almost went under, indeed fiorentina did whilst parma are still paying for it today, as they wasted money on over priced players like signori and mendieta.
do we want to be the same ?? or would you rather this club move forward slowly before pushing the top 4 and finally being debt free ?
what we need is a few more years of finishing in the top 6/7 and cementing our place as a top uefa cup side.
yes we need investment but a complete over haul of the board of directors is a disaster waiting to happen. remember peter johnson ?? enough said
7 years ago we would have killed to have finish in the top 10 four seasons out of five...lets get behind BK and DM and stop moaning

of the rs are worried about their new american owners!!Sure they are going to
get their nice superdome,that on bad days may be 2/3 full...and they might get
the odd big name......overpriced and probably past his best,and that's about it!
Thay are pulling their hair out over Rafa maybe walking out!!
The same Yanks that tried to buy Aston Villa with their borrowed money....and who
said Baseball was really more their game!!
I'm 100% behind Kenwright and Moyes....should have been 5th this last season!
WAS 4th the other season.....finishing above teams that have either sold out or
have plenty of money!!
You don't know what you've got till it's gone!

i cant belive birmingham are beeing took over by the 5th richest man in the world
Indeed they are....putting it from a different angle, this new owner is TWICE as rich as the owner of chelsea....Probably due to its Asian connection i assume,,,,

We have been unattractive for investors over the years, perhaps with maybe a new stadium, that could change.
As for DM and BK always supported them and always will for the same reasons as Blue 250.

at the moment they, along with spurs, are the best run club in the premiership. The owners dont pay over the odds for players or spend lots of money on salaries, which ruins dressing harmony.
Do they honestly want to sell out and run the risk of being ruined as a club ? and if they do sell out, do the fans honestly think that all of a sudden the club will buy players like kaka raul buffon etc ? nope...they will probably do what west ham have done, bought average players for over the odds and for massive salaries
does everybody honestly think mr abramovich will be at chelsea forever ? and he keep bank rolling them for decades to come ?
one day all these big backers will get bored with football and pull out, then the clubs will be in real trouble

Abramovich is already showing signs of loosing interest at Chelsea and when he walks and it is only a matter of time they are in deep shit, maybe even bankrupt but at best they will do a Leeds.
The yanks at Liverpool now look like they are backing down on the big transfer budget they had promised.
Living above your means can only lead to trouble in the long run.

I as well think people get a bit confused with investment of clubs. They think investment in clubs will bring success. You have to remember that once the owners of clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea lose interest they will then just dump the club and buy some other club. By placing so much faith in one person to bring a club to success, it will only that same man to walk out and the club will collapse. Everton is unique as it can rely on its youth acadamy to bring in its talent while other clubs need to buy theirs. All we need to do is maintain a spot in Europe and we will get success.
i dont think we need investment, but we do need a more "suitable" owner.
and also, we have got a good reputation for our academy. but look at our first team, we bought most of it! we do need to rely on buying players to improve in the short term
