Yeehhh **** all other teams apart from a tiny minority. So inward, small town mentality.
Yeah I bet Brentford and Bournemouth wish they’d fecked it off too.

Rovers' owner spunks a fortune every year and they managed to finish one place above us last year.

That's why we can't afford those players.
No they didn't 😉

Oh that’s good to know my day gets better! I mean good job we’ve got no money for the playing budget safe in the knowledge now the training ground we spent £3m on isn’t even an asset of ours.
It's an asset, to the club, because it's where the players work day to day. In turn, it helps attract players etc. It could/should/will improve the players. But to an owner there's no resale value.

For every Bournemouth or Brentford there's more than one Portsmouth, Leeds, Derby, Swindon, Bury etc.

Fairly sure there’s some sort of covenant that ensures it remains a football facility though?
I think you're right.

Take this information with a pinch of salt it’s just what I’ve been told.

“It looks like you guys won’t be signing anyone. Haven’t heard anything, a lot of logistics have let you guys down this window. Don’t expect anything unless things change very very late on to the point in maybe too late to complete paperwork. Good luck however“.

let’s hope he is wrong…

Didn't we ask for it to be removed? I might be wrong.
