The way we are heading we will finish up 11th (if we are lucky) and none of them will receive their top 10 incentive.

Good. They don't deserve an incentive.
Log on to the N-O forum.
Check the transfer thread in the vague hope we might be going to spend some money, get p*ssed off.
Move to the Mike Ashley thread because I'm p*ssed off, get more p*ssed off.
Come to this thread to cheer myself up a bit.
Leave.
Repeat.

WOW guys, we exceed the financial fair play rules which only actually make a difference if you're trying to get into a competition we actively want to avoid!  CONGRATULATIONS!



The Premier League also have financial fair player regulations which have nothing to do with European competition.

He specifically refers to the UEFA rules.
UEFA rules are also a fair bit stricter than prem rules so make it look better in theory by saying your well in compliance with them

@TomBarclay_SUN: New #nufc managing director Lee Charnley: "Our intention for the first team is to sign one or two players per year to strengthen the squad"

:anguish:

That'll be easy with the £20m of Mike's own money he will invest each year, Stadium Renaming Money, increased commercial revenueCarroll Money,Cabaye Money, Money from selling land around SJP, lack of money spent over the last twelve months, Premier League New TV Deal.
Gannin doon then.

If our form since boxing day is anything to go by, probably.

You could say that it is ironic that charnley puts his attention to Uefa FFP because we as a club have no interest in being in either of the uefa competitions, If he said premier league instead then that would be fine.

It's one of the biggest insluts to our intellectual capacity that the Ashley regime has produced.

Do all of Ashley's Yes Men have a competition to see how far they can get their tongues up his arse? Or maybe that is the selection criteria? Whatever the answer they are clearly all s*** scared of upsetting their boss.

You don't get promoted up the ranks by questioning the ridiculousness of Mike Ashley's continued existence.

I see that and its pretty stupid of him to specifically mentions those regulations given their apparent thoughts on the UEFA cup.  Just saying FYI that their are also Premier League FFP that obviously effect us whether we're in Europe or not.  Though they are certainly less stringent than UEFA's rules.

i have agonised for weeks that i have done the right thing not renewing,  i knew it was something in needed to do but after going for 30 years and having a season ticket for 25 yr and over 130 loyalty points it was a real wrench but that statement has proved once and for all that we are going nowhere and i have made the right decision.

I think you'll find all Premier League managing directors say the same thing.

Hate the dryness of the statement, but he's just a thoroughly uninspiring promoted money man.

If we get an ambitious director of football to work in tandem with the bloke, great. Could work out really well.






That's not going to happen though, is it.

Some right hyperbole here like. It's an official statement to present the new MD, they're not going to say "Alan Pardew is a useless t*** who we'll sack in a bit".

Yes, things are looking grim but there's no reason cutting your wrists because of this statement.

Rubbish. What we're seeing on the pitch is a direct result of the policies set out by the board of directors, and it's abundantly clear from that statement that there is no ambition whatsoever to make this club challenge for anything above existing in the Premiership. It's not something new of course, but that reads like a BoD statement of every other corporation. Absolutely no understanding of football, fan passion, etc. Hurts more than getting dicked on the pitch every forthnight.

Remember Joe Kinnear? That was a disaster. This just confirms things we already knew.

An ambitious director of football to buy 1 or 2 players per year and give them to Alan Pardew? Yeah I'm canny sure that won't work.

@CaulkinTheTimes: Would always want clubs to communicate with fans, but difficult to read Lee Charnley's #Nufc statement & not feel monumentally depressed.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

He sounds truly inspiring. He was Llambias' understudy, IIRC, which means he should be an improvement on JFK, at least.
