    Wow you seem to have taken this personally when I wasn't aiming at you. I was aiming it at anyone who was questioning those who are saying that people are using boycott as an excuse. Seeing as i've been going to City since season 68/69, yes I do remember those owners you mention and no I didn't boycott them. I count these two aresholes as our worst ever owners, I hate, detest them with a passion.
    I won't be attending while they own our Club, OUR Club, not theirs. I've said all I wanted to say so that's my lot for tonight, i've got a good book waiting for me. Sleep well. CTID

    Good grief, do people still exist that believe that bullshit? Incredible.

    The name change had nothing - repeat NOTHING - to do with attracting investment. That was a poorly constructed figment of Assem’s imagination, based on the synopsis of a paper he never read. I see you are suggesting people give their head a wobble - you need to take your own advice on this matter.

    Didn't have a clue? Sorry, cannot go along with that suggestion.

    Who? I can recall a C Needler and a R Chetham. If you can’t even remember people’s names, are you sure you are in a strong position to sound off like this?

    Oh yeah, Chetham was Needler Jnr's Hatchet man - so, same regime, got an initial wrong after 30 years. Whats your point?

    As good a description for a brother in law as any other I suppose.

    Well, Allamhouse and City accounts are available, so you can tell me what he was worth at any given time, the massive profits the club was making at amy given time and tell me where he could have funded a 30m striker or two on top of his initial investment then?

    Yeah, hes obvously only got 20m in the bank without selling assets now. He was worth less in 2014.

    Chetham was the puppet. Needler jr pulled the strings, made the decisions. Lack of popularity always comes about when the words 'sustainability' and god-forbid 'profit' come eminating from the boardroom.

    Unless a succession of rich folk bankrupt themselves on funding our dreams
    the city fans will always find a reason.

    The rest is just snowflaking.

    Not personally. Just sick and tired of the drama.

    Will the floodlights work next season?

    What league are we in?

    Seen worse. Crack on.

    Sky bankroll Premier League clubs, he didn't have to put further money in, precisely why he's not had to put in a single penny in for around seven years now.

    Premier League Clubs cumulative net debt stands at approximately £3.5 Billion,Chelsea are responsible for £1.3 Billion of that..

    No denying that Sky pay huge amounts of revenue into the game but depending on your aspirations and ambition,it simply doesn't stretch at times?

    Is it 'Hull City most successful years' by AA or '104 years of mediocrity that went before' by a succession of other owners ?

    Wigan had how many years in the PL and look what happened to them
    Blackburn
    Plenty of others

    always remember duffer saying when he got **** for “all those millions”
    Basically said he was just a funnel from the PL to the players!!
    The club didn’t see the money only in passing

    He did need to invest over and above income if we wanted to establish us there for more than the odd seson at a time. All PL clubs get premier league money, most of 'em more than we ever did due to league position. No ones suggested they have put any money in for about 7 years. Wonder why? Something to do with having to risk another 50 million on forward players to keep us up there at all?

    At the top of the game, the spending far outweighs the income, but it's possible to compete purely on the Sky income if you're willing to work within those constraints. Burnley did it for years, even building state of the art training facilities at the same time (though their new owner has now loaded them with debt), West Brom the same, also Sheffield United recently. There tends to be a fair bit of yo-yoing if your operating that way, but I doubt any of us would have an issue with that.

    I never said it wasnt a poorly constucted figment of the old man's imagination, just that it came about as he hadn't deep enough pockets to keep us in the PL indefinitely without additional revenue.

    Our issue wasn't the fact that money wasn't going it, it was that the owner decided to cash out and that led to us becoming less and less competitive and as a consequence the club generated less and less revenue, it became a self-fulling prophecy.
