    asset stripping..

    evening you Geordies, know everything ain't Right atmo but is

    Ashley selling the Family silver to push you into the Champs? to profit from the sales and then still get the price he wants? whoever takes over will have to start from scratch with a team with no quality....

    take care now

    If that was the case then why employ a manager on 6 million a year and hand him a bucket full of money to get the club out of the championship?
    Why would an owner buy in a player, breaking the club's record if his intention is to asset strip?

    How many players have been sold for big money against their wishes?
    If clubs come to unsettle players and the players express a desire to leave then isn't it sensible to play hard ball with them and get the best prices?

    Ignore him, John.

    This is pretty much what we are worried about.
    And what has generally been occurring since he strolled into town, sadly.

    He can't get the price he wants if the club has no assets.

    he's selling your best Players and collecting the cash without investing, being relegated with parachute payments what do you not understand?

    Bingo ! It's scary that so many of our own fans can't see this. Mind, his gamble of instant promotion has paid off twice.

    Clubs are swooping with bids because the mood music of the club is set to unambitious.

    They know the players are all available to buy and we won't be competing for anything anytime soon.

    Evening, John. Good to hear from you, man.

    To be honest, I'd happily accept selling every player on our books just to get rid of him...and I'm not even exaggerating.

    Worryingly, though....I don't think he's asset stripping before he goes...he's just a fat, useless and greedy man who is a gambler and thinks he can run us on the bare minimum (and he hasn't estimated that right, either).
