I was glad he shared. It's this sort of context that's really lacking from Phil's story IMO...

Sometimes you gotta tell the people more than once.

Or maybe ten times judging by some of the news comments.

That is true. And it is a point which needs making. The more season tickets that are sold, the more can be spent on the squad wages-wise.

I believe that club owners can invest in the club - sell more shares to themselves - and that those monies raised would be counted as income for the purpose of FFP. Loans to the club, as per ME approach, do not count as income.

I think that's a crucial difference between L1 and higher leagues, where it's much more strict and doesn't allow owners to inject cash' quite so freely. I mean it kind of makes sense, revenue is revenue I guess, however immoral it may seem to bend the rules, that's the owners prerogative. Burdening a club with debt to get around the rules clearly isn't sustainable and defeats the purpose.

Either way I do agree that ultimately, while the new owners will no doubt stomach a loss making concern for the foreseeable, the take up of season tickets will no doubt influence the level of investment this summer. Not least just giving them the confidence that the appetite is there. It's easy to sit here and say it, and people's circumstances are different, but I would really love it if loads of us put our money where our mouth is now ME has gone. Lets give the new owners the benefit of the doubt and look forward to a new season with some optimism. I'll be buying one for me and one for my old man.

I think the footballing world has got to understand we have tons of people out of work and between jobs who can't presently dump a few hundred quid in one go on football, whatever their feelings are towards the price. ST will be effected by all of this, the fact that rule is even still in place for L1 given the last year just shows you how detached they are.

Agreed. We've got what we've been crying out for, over years.

No more Lambert, no more Evans, and new owners who have gone out of their way to engage with the fans.

It is important we put our money where our collective mouths have been for a while.

Which is what I was trying to work through at the weekend

Away from the painful trudge towards the end of the season by SWGF 25 Apr 13:51
I think my question was more regulatory, and not necessarily Ipswich-specific.

If our owners wanted to to give away season tickets (or sell them for £100 each) they could. They've got the money to not miss that income. However, they *can't* because it will affect their ability to pay wages due to the lack of turnover. Or am I misunderstanding something?

big shirt sponsorship coming? Can gamechanger or one of their side business do it and flood money in that way? or would that be breaking rules.

No need. Owners are allowed to invest additional funds into the club to increase income and therefore what can be spent on wages. They would most likely do this by issuing new shares in the company, something that have said that they would do when they took charge.

I'm not sure they have side businesses with the financial muscle to do that.

Poll: Would love to see one of our midfield contribute 10+ goals. Who is most likely.
