    I don't think that there are any conspiracy theories, more like trying to understand if the budget deficit that required money to be pulled from the player budget is real or not. Is it going to impact on the clubs long term operating conditions, or is it being used to facilitate the sale ? If it is the former then we have a bigger problem than the latter. We don't have many facts, but the ones that we do have don't add up which is why we have the speculation

    I predict that it won't be spent until it is in our piggy bank. It might get released to GC in January if he needs it, but I don't expect any additions to the squad this window. The potential sale appears to be all about saving where we can, so until that is completed/cancelled, don't expect any major spending.

    I think that is what I am speculating. We used up some of our reserves last season to support an increased player budget. This season the new board want to replenish that and are taking the money out of the playing budget that GC thought he had.

    The only way I can square the circle from all of the statements is that we used up some of our reserves last season (again conjecture). That is hardly financial mismanagement

    Except that according to JLow and Springford, we didn’t.

    is that one of those the older I get, the better I was stories ?

    I guess that if we dipped into our reserves, that would be technically living beyond our means without going into debt. However what are we supposed to do with the reserves if it is not used to avoid a relegation ? Maybe that is where the mystery £200k is. Perhaps the board wanted to take it out of the player budget and instead use it to replenish the reserves

    I think he means it is sick that you want to make improvements to Cappielow

    And what do our stadium sponsors say about this release of energy ?

    I have every confidence that the number of new players arriving will be 3 less than that.

    You beat me to it. I read that and dismissed the rest of the article as being lip service. If you are going to try to improve the PR, first step is to get the ****ing facts right.

    But follow that and all the pay at the gate and away fans gate money goes into someone’s piggy bank. We do have to forecast some income and add it to budgets or next seasons manager will get a massive pot to spend

    And what a coincidence that the OF draw the lowest ranked teams that remain. Anyone might think the draw was rigged
