  1. EDITED - SEEMS LIKE THE SPORTPESA THING WAS EITHER A RED HERRING OR CHANGED TACK. Not sure where else to post this ... From the dodgiest of sources as well but just sharing ... https://tbrfootball.com/aston-villa-reportedly-set-for-new-sponsors-with-everton-dropped-sportpesa-stepping-up/
  2. Linfields playing in UVF colours for their change strip this season
  3. Everything is up in the air, football is even more broken and as much as people like to pretend they know what is it going to happen in the coming months no one really knows. Clubs are going under, clubs are having their transfer budgets slashed or even erased. And tons of clubs owes huge sums to agents and other clubs for unpaid transfer fees already. There is a huge black hole in the finances of football where the clubs themselves actually doesn't have much money and are relying on loans and their owners to bail them out because agent fees and ridiculous salaries are siphoning all the money out from the game. Man U has apparently taken out a £140m emergency loan to be able to keep spending in the summer despite owing £200m in unpaid transfers to various clubs... Player valuations are falling through the floor. I know there is a debate about this and we'll see. But there are still transfers to be done in the summer. And some, like Ziyech to Chelsea is already done. Apparently Icardi to PSG is very close to be completed but for a much smaller fee than what was initially suggested. "Only" £55-58m or so. Bit of a steal that. Let the madness begin!
  4. Thread for Positive people only. If we can keep Wesley, Mcginn and Luiz at a minimum we've got a really good Championship side to bounce straight back up! Even tho we will get around 60-80 million for Grealish, I don't think we really need to spend that much money, Quality over Quantity this time please. Two quality wingers are the most important transfers we need. Not sure who will be partnering Konsa in defence all depends if Mings go. I don't really trust Hause & Engels. They will make decent squad players. Playoff is the minimum requirement. If the players still want to play for him, and the board are happy lets give Dean Smith the chance like Dyche got for Burnley to get us back up and who is now considered "a good manager". Who do you think we will keep and what position do we need to strengthen? Should Dean Smith be the man to take us back up? Could we possibly keep Mcginn, Luiz, Mings and Wesley?
  5. The guardian and other outlets state that apparently FFP has been removed for at least the 2020 season. From what I read the only area that still needs to be complied with is losses of no more than 105m or something. Now I'm not advocating us going stupid and putting the club at risk, but I do think regardless of whether we stay up or go down, we need to invest heavily (and intelligently), we probably wont have a better chance to lay a strong foundation than this summer. FFP being removed for at least this year gives us the opportunity to flex our financial muscle, I hope we dont waste it. Thoughts?
