I don’t confess to being any sort of expert on football finances, I run a business but football finances baffle me. The majority outside the Premier league seem to run at a loss. So, with that in mind, what will someone like Laurence Bassani actually gain from buying Bolton for £25m? Is it to borrow against? Is it to further strip of anything that the pawn shop might take? Is it for a wage? He failed at Watford but left a trail of mystery and dodgy dealings behind.
For those in the mood for a little nostalgia, search 'shoot focus on' and go to images. I remember reading about these when I was a kid. Interesting to note that Phil Thompson, captain of the all conquering Liverpool side of the 70's & 80's, drove a Ford Granada. Not just any Granada, a bloody Granada GL.
Mrs took my two boys to Col u tonight. They were near the team bus just letting the traffic die down when the players came out. Several of them stopped for a photo and a chat, that really meant a lot to a 12 and a 9 year old.
Im looking for help to set up a couple of web pages for additional businesses that will run alongside what we do at the moment. Nothing massive, but a professional presence to compliment local advertising. I guess that will need to include acquiring domain names etc.
Just a conversation me and the Mrs had whilst watching match of the day. It was Watford v Middlesborough. I thought all clubs wore their standard kit unless they clashed with the home side? When did it start that a club could wear whatever kit they fancied on the day?
I guess it's a great revenue stream to release as many kits as you can, but I didn't know you could swap at will.
