  1. It's been done to death, but it's entirely feasible that AL's actions in bringing in players that contributed little on inflated wages lead to a fractured changing room which meant a lot of players' mind wasn't entirely on the job. Wellens takes some of the blame, but it might have been an impossible scenario to manage... As for the debts, you're making it sound as if Corney hid pretty much every single debt we had from AL. If so, he should be taking appropriate action and I guess he'll hope to recoup a lot of the money he's spent to invest in the team at some point in the future.
  2. For arguments sake, lets say he did do his due diligence and Corney pulled the wool over his eyes with some of debts, the other debts like the HMRC were his as soon as he bought the club! It's great that, according to the statement, we're back on an even footing, but should we really be grateful for doing something which should have been his immediate intention? He's not here for the love. He's bought a business and has had to spend a bit to stop it declining beyond recovery. The mistakes he's made so far have been massive - he's interfered in team matters and handed out unsustainable contracts to average random players. Those two actions were huge not only in our relegation, but also increasing the club's debt/his own spending. I like the tone of the statement, but it really tells us nothing. The hard work for him starts now.
  3. That's some mistake throwing £3 million at a venture he "didn't fully understand"....

    Remember at the time thinking things can't possibly get any worse..

    If we don't win this, it'll be a really really poor start to the season..

    They're bringing 800+, Forest brought 700 for a friendly... ..do they not have anything better to do in that part of the world??

    In a pre season interview, when asked what targets were set for this season he said "We'll see how it goes". I almost shat myself with excitement..
  8. Money he should have known he had to spend before he bought the club to fit in with the long-term plan that he also should have had before he bought the club. Maybe he'd have more resources now if he hadn't handed out massive contracts to average random players that weren't really wanted or needed? He's played his part in our relegation. He's not doing it for the love. So far we have little to be grateful for.

    Bunn Officially confirmed

    This might be exactly where we're at..

    Because of the compensation issue more than anything else, I would guess. And what if, in his first two games, he loses at home and gets a scabby point away, while showing similar demeanour to Bunn? Do we demand his resignation?

    A Football Manager CV would be more impressive than mine. Couldn't get into anything after CM 01/02. It became too much like hard work..

    The "70 CVs" figure always makes me laugh. I could stick a CV in with my enviable record on Championship Manager - would that count as one of the 70?? And for the reasons you've listed, we wouldn't get anyone better..

    Would have had to pay compensation, surely? Who's to say he'd want to come, given our reputation?

    You think? Certainly wouldn't get any one with experience. Even someone without experience might think twice, given the reputation as a madhouse we're gaining and the fact they're more than likely going to fail..
