Ah, I'll wait for OR to come online... Simba

I've been thinking about it a lot, and it isn't easy to make money out of a football club. They've paid transfer fees, agents' fees, wages, running costs and the initial outlay on buying the club, so on the face of it they would struggle to make a profit without breaking the covenants on Ewood and Brockhall.

However, if they were to sell players and remove all the cash assets from the club and run it using debt leveraged against the assets that they can't sell (i.e. Ewood, Brockhall and future income) they would probably make a reasonable profit and then either try to salvage some more cash by selling the club or, if a buyer can't be found, they could let the club go bust.

What I can't fathom is if their aim is to make a profit they would have been better off taking the offer from the Qataris the other week, which by all accounts offered them a very healthy profit that you have no right to expect on a 12-month investment.

The LET says they offered 25m, 2m more than the Venkys paid for Rovers. But I'm almost sure I saw some reports of 45-50m (?).

"...if a buyer can't be found, they could let the club go bust" - I've been pondering that. It hurts to do so, but as ruthless and evil as it is, I still think it's a possibility.

I don't know what numbers the Qataris were supposed to be offering, but people whose information on that sequence of events proved far more accurate than anything Cryer and co have ever come up with have said that it would have represented a substantial return on the investment that the Raos made last year.

Remember, when Venky's bought the club the LET also reported that they had cleared the debts. Some time later they quietly acknowledged that that hadn't happened, without ever putting it in print.

Cryer continues to be the club's mouthpiece, printing what he's told and being grateful for it. Nobody could possibly report on Rovers without criticising the current regime, yet he passed off Kean's 'revised' deal as being met by a "mixed reaction".

Was it a mix of outrage and disbelief?

It's very quiet on here. :/


And before anyone says it, no, I don't think GR being here would make a huge difference. It'd be nice if he'd pop in, though.

Why would you want to go to Leicester, though? :/

Seriously, dude, from what I know about universities AND cities, go to fucking Liverpool.

I don't know if it's any good, I just take my cousins' word for it. Seems like uni is just an excuse for an extended piss up for some people anyway.

Why, what's up with Leicester? I quite like the look of it.

French and Spanish.

It's pretty good, yeah. Though out of the ones I've applied to it has the lowest entry requirements, but it's nice. Very Happy

Leicester is depressing, dude. It's like Blackburn or Burnley but bigger, and with nicer buildings. Same class of people, and same race issues.

Nottingham is awesome. Bit rough in places, but where isn't? Not sure about the uni, but I think you'd do well to leave the north west.

The uni is the best one I've applied to (but it then follows that it's the hardest to get into), and the campus is just beautiful. My first choice by a mile.
