Hollis made?

Blimey!  remember him?  

Bernstein, King, Hollis et al, mentioning them sounds like we are talking of our club from a decade ago - that is a sign of how far we have come

Be good if we had a banner  "100% Tony"  for the next home game.

Yeah saw that earlier. It makes zero sense and looks like complete guesswork, still they got a "click" out of me and you so it's job done I suppose.

how much? So i don't have to give them another click.

I was just thinking, Steve Bruce must really want to give his very best to our club because of Tony Xia. Surely this is the best owner he's ever worked for?

Dave Whelan at Wigan - loved the club and honourable to managers but not much money to spend and always hogging the limelight. 

The owners at Sunderland - whoever they were - didn't seem to have much money or ambition. 

The Hull owner, who seemed scatty as anything and caused Bruce to walk out on them. 

Sullivan & the porn dwarves at Small Heath, nothing else to say here is there! 

Brucey must really think all his Christmasses have come at once and be really keen to get us back into the Premier League with the riches that Tony Xia seems to have. 

And a good enough reason to get us up, PL established and upwardly mobile with expansive football.

I think a banner saying:

50% + (20->) 50% = 100%

would be more appropriate!

He has stated in press conferences he's waited his whole managerial career for an opportunity like this. I think you're right.

And then we go and end up being the first team he fails to get promoted at the first attempt :ph34r:

I highly doubt they have any access to his real networth, I mean weren't people having mini meltdowns about him allegedly only being worth 52 mill or something in the beginning?

This guys companies have involvement in everything from smart cities to Aero space, does Billion Dollar deals.

Evenif not all his, it's clear he has access to monumental sums from somewhere.
