    Bilic showing first signs of frustration!

    In a piece in the E&S.

    So here we go........itís a ďpull your finger out of your a r s e prontoĒ shot at Dowling and Jenkins.

    There will only be one winner Slaven.....history tells us this.

    Heíll be gone before the advent calendar has its first window opened.

    Sadly.

    Welcome to the world of WBA Mr Bilic, a club of no ambition whatsoever, a penny pinching club that takes a lifetime to do one transfer, if you think the club will sign 2 or 3 players this week then you are deluded. My advice to you is to walk away now before your reputation is damaged beyond repair, anyone dealing with the likes of Jenkins and Dowling needs to take a long look at themselves, this great club is on a downward spiral to oblivion.

    I do not understand the world of finance. But if Mr. Lai is unable to put his money into the club due to the Chinese forbidding money going out of China, then how can a Chinese club buy Rondon for £16.5 million should they want him. The money would be coming to us so it is leaving China.

    Isn't it obvious JD. That 138 million Chinese Ranminbi will go straight into Lai's back pocket meaning that it never leaves China!

    I read somewhere that Arsenal fans are calling for a change of owners, and i think Arsenal have a bit more ambition than us.
    The reason why this club has no ambition is our fans are too docile, Peace took the p!$$ for years and now Lai is doing the same, and all fans talk about is if the new strip is nice or not.
    You get what you deserve in this life.

    We could have a Steve Bruce situation. Sheff Wed have only just appointed potato head and as soon as a bigger club comes sniffin, he's off.

    If only you lived in the North East you would know how untrue that is.

    Geordies been trying to get Ashley out for years, protests, press and internet campaigns and one heck of a lot more, so much that Ashley hardly ever is seen at the ground (that bit sounds like Mr Lai). Other fans at Blackpool, Blackburn and plenty of others have also tried to change the owners but they will only go if it is financial worth their trouble.

    We have no chance of anyone buying the club for the money Lai paid for it and until he gets his money back plus whatever profit he wants, then in my opinion we are stuck with him. Also stuck with the Championship at best so better get used to it I think. Letís hope it isnít League 1 before then but you never know.

    Despite initial enthusiasm to invest in overseas football the Chinese economy began to slow down. Their government decided some time back that foreign club ownership was a financial burden they were no longer prepared to encourage in the short/medium term.

    Money still comes out of China for long term infrastructure projects like rail or power stations though as they see a return on their money. With this in mind the Chinese government have imposed a 100% tax on foreign transfers to discourage them taking place. £16.5 million for us (Rondon) means £16.5 million for them too (tax) and represents a nice little earner. Transfers still happen but Chinese club owners are having to prioritize and think more responsibly.

    I like Rondon but he turns thirty in September, he only has a year on his contract and I don't see him as a £33 million priority for anybody. So unless there's a hefty mark down on his release clause to get his wages off the books I'd be amazed if he goes to China. And if he does go there for a total of £33 million somebody's going to need shooting after they've been knocked sh!tless first.

    Can hardly contain my excitement for the coming season.

    Hope Jenkins has provisionally booked an open top bus for next May.

    Don't go to the games it's pointless protesting if you keep buying season tickets and going to games protest with your feet and keep away what's the point of protesting if you still get 50 odd thousand going to the ground your just idiots of course he's not bothered hit him in the pocket

    I was quite excited when Bilic was appointed as the new HC but did wonder what Jenkins & co. had promised him in order to get his signature. As some have speculated, I would not be surprised if he was gone well before Christmas when the realisation hits him regarding Lai and his hatchet man. The way things look at the moment, I think that success this season will be avoiding League 1.

    Maybe Sainsbury's have made an offer for the Hawthorns site?

    I noticed Chris Lepkowski absolutely skewering Dowling today on Social Media...

    Essentially saying he is completely inept, unprofessional and incompetent. One of the reasons why our successful academy is being decimated, he's marginalising coaches who have been at the club for years and they're being forced out to join other clubs.

    I think CL still has a lot of sources still inside the club. He is absolutely scathing about him.

    This does not bode well at all for our future.

    It's looking increasingly like he's on his way.

    Don't know how much for but if it's for anything like previously quoted figures somebody needs thwacking with a big sh!tty stick .
