Feck me I know that. Wolves are a very similar club to us though, similar gates until they sniffed success this season, if we are close to or in breach of it, imagine how much more they are.
Thanks for keeping us up, Harry.

Difference is the dog heads are going up that makes a big difference ‘ and at witton that’s why they are all sweating buckets because if they don’t go up it’s doom and gloom for that lot

I'm not sure that wolves revenue is 'far higher' than ours. It may be higher but, as BS62 said, until this season there's not that much difference in gates and I'm not sure that Wolves generate much more than us commercially - if they do, then we need to question the people running our club as to why that is.

If wolves were not going up this season then they would be heading for big trouble regards FFP, however they have gambled and it has paid off. We gambled (although to a much lesser degree than them) and it hasn't worked.

As others have said, Villa have to go up this season because if they don't there will be a massive cull in spending and a fire sale of their best players

Agreed. They can’t be that much different to us but will do a QPR and exceed the limit but before they are outed they will be in the PL and out of reach of the EFL.

Sorry Burlington but I don't think it'll be 'far' higher than ours either, obviously more now they are selling more shirts to the great unwashed and attracting more commercial revenue but still nowhere near enough to justify what they've spent.
Now the vile will be far higher than ours and has been for years, but the great and good still say they are in breach.
Anyway, it's a sham the whole FFP thing, Prem and FL don't want to enforce it really as they've got their snouts in the trough too.
Thanks for keeping us up, Harry.

It appears that Steve can sometimes out-weird Wor Lee in the spoken content of his post match interviews , however he fails dismally in the Pissed Up Gurning department

Apparently a few people on twitter said he had to be held back at FT telling some blues fans to feck off.

Hang on, you were the one who said FFP my arse.

They had a bigger turnover and an operating profit.

They don’t give a shit about FFP because they’re going up, we will get a fine if we continue to spend and we’ll have been relegated, not a sound business model. The end

I don't even know why I'm arguing with you, tbh all I was saying is the FFP is a sham, just the authorities paying lip service to it. It's not in their interest to stop money coming into the game.

So further to my much maligned post insinuating that he may be gone this evening (which may still happen and I've heard nothing to say it won't)

Can I ask opinion as to whether or not the greater SHA masses would support this or not?

Personally I think SC is probably a very good coach but not a manager and his ramblings and more so violent outbursts suggest that he isn't up to dealing with the pressure of the no1 spot.

Time for me SC went or took a back seat role.
