What is it about Rotherham?
at 21:53 28 Jan 2020

They are physical and were up for it.

Should have scored three.

Not good enough.

Only started to play in the last five minutes.

We were out muscled and dominated.

Haven’t had a shot on target

Remarkably poor. We look bereft of energy and ideas.

Have brought almost 1,000 fans 4 hours north.

Pathetic by the team.

Which says it all.

Hardly had the ball near their goal.

Just a lot of huffing and puffing with little output.

Very poor.

Why are funds so tight at Ipswich?
at 19:25 28 Jan 2020

Yes I will. It sounds impressive.

You spend £6-10m a year to plug losses and turn it into £15-20m.

It’s all about “tax and stuff and offshore stuff”.

Sorry for being too specific.

So where is your evidence that he has taken money out of the club for his own gain or that the club is somehow “just a front” for something else (whatever that means).

As I say, unless you can substantiate these allegations, then apart from looking like a tit it’s also pretty unreasonable to slate a man who has kept the club afloat and subsidised tens of millions of losses. Several other clubs would have been grateful for this - ask a Bury or Chester fan.

To date he has spent about £60-70 million of capital on the club. Player sales have been used to subsidise other costs. He has not taken any money out of the club - which is not surprising given it doesn’t make ANY money with the exception of one or two seasons - and then only due to player sales.

Anyone who understands business will see it’s a bad business to be owner of Ipswich, and it costs £6-10m a year for the privilege.

Give it a rest. These wild and lazy pub allegations against him are not based on any evidence and have been shown to be nonsense. He hasn’t taken any money out of the club, but put £60-70m in, and any offset against his other tax is limited and he’s still worse off.

I doubt he has the disposable cash to be able to spend much more. His worth is based on his assets - the value of his companies were he to sell them. They will produce profit but I doubt it’s huge, given the slow down in the corporate hospitality business and why would he want to throw that money away? A football club is a bad business to own - it costs him £6-10m a year just to own it. The market had moved on now from when he bought the club such that to get into the premiership you need serious money.

There are also financial fair play rules which limit the amount he can spend versus the club’s losses.

Why should Prince Andrew..
at 11:34 28 Jan 2020

People keep saying “face justice”.

But under the law, she has immunity.

So justice is about the rule of law and she is I am afraid operating within it.

It’s morally bankrupt - but then what is the point of the rule of law if not to set out what we deem to be acceptable or not.

Agree morally.

However as the law stands it is justice in the US case because the US is operating within the law.

Because under the law he doesn’t have diplomatic immunity so the comparison isn’t an equivalent one.

Whatever moral criticisms can be made, this is the law as it stands and as this country agreed it.

Maybe Lambert’s rotation policy will start to pay off?
at 07:34 26 Jan 2020

Except it was the rotation policy that was used when we were top and had a very strong start to the season, so your explanation doesn’t really work
