The Aguero situation could be a problem and perhaps the Fernandinho one as well. Apart from that, I think we are pretty well set and won't need any huge acquisitions in the next few seasons.

Think a replacement for Fernandinho will be in the region of £50M. Aguero on the other hand.

I meant more in the case that we need to replace two or more of our spine in one window/season.

Well that could be a problem if this FFP gets off the ground. I wonder if its actually a way to stop transfer fees getting even higher. Though i reckon Aguero probably has a year extra on Fern so we may not sign both replacements in a single window

Heard a little on the radio and I think they said £89 million (100 mil euros) net loss in one season. Whichever it is, it's there to once again cement the current old guard at the top and ensure that they get the most revenue. Double whammy with the introduction of historical seeding when it comes to CL payments.

Heard that the Dippers got approx 70 mil from the CL last season but if they did the same this season it would jump to approx 120.

There's only one loser in all this, and it's the majority of clubs that are historically outside of the old guard.

Corrupt? You fucking bet it is and they're not ashamed to let everybody know it.

Don't like this piece from the BBC. Basically our attendance numbers are bullshit.

Rags on the other hand....

The BBC are very selective in their "news" pieces. They're just behind the mirror at the moment.

Clubs are compelled (I think by the FA or maybe the Premier League?) to publish 'tickets sold' per game - police are compelled (for health and safety reasons) to keep actual matchday attendance figures. It keeps coming up in the media every now and then, usually to beat us around the head with the discrepancy.

Strangely, Merseyside police are not compelled to hold that data and were therefore unable to publish it. The game we played against Southampton was apparently attended by 38k according to the police. I was at that game and there was a lot more than 38k there. One of us is lying.

They held it, for certain. Publishing it is something else though.

A discrepancy of 15000 or so punters is equivalent to the main stand being completely empty with the rest of the ground full. Be gobsmacked if that was the case.

Absolutely and the discrepancy is about 17k. It doesn't have any balance as a story either. It's only a sample of games and only a sample of clubs.......agenda based.

I find it laughable that we are down 7500 on average yet scum manage to convince everyone that thier figures exactly match the published figures. Something not right there.

Average attendances per club
Club (% of capacity) FOI (% of capacity) Difference (% of capacity)

West Ham 55,309 (97%) 42,779* (75%) 12,530 (22%)
Man City 53,274 (97%) 45,792* (83%) 7,482 (14%)
Southampton 29,906 (92%) 25,660 (79%) 4,246 (13%)
Tottenham 61,843 (69%) 58,103 (65%) 3,740 (4%)
Chelsea 40,593 (98%) 37,088** (89%) 3,505 (8%)
Watford 20,319 (95%) 17,171*** (80%) 2,602 (15%)
Man Utd 73,575 (98%) 73,575* (98%) 0 (0%)

Read the article this morning and it's basically a load of bullshit aimed at the click-bait Rags in order for them to try and beat us with. We've already seen that the Rags ain't full and it was reported as fact a couple of years back yet the Beeb seem to somehow get figures that say they are full every game. It's obviously sanctioned by a Rag and written by a Rag for the Rags. This is what happens when you have the Swamp across the way.

Some f the figures for us are ridiculous as you can't even imagine those games against Spurs and Liverpool weren't 99% full. Yes, we will be down in occasions due to individual personal circumstances but to the tune of 10s of thousands, you're having a laugh. Don't get me wrong, when I moved to Colin Bell 3 in the mid 00s there were plenty of seats empty, and you'd see lots in the East Stand, but that soon changed and ever since it's always been near enough full.

The biggest question for me is why they have to declare tickets sold rather than actual attendance? Is there something in the Sky/PL contract that says there could be sanctions if the clubs aren't getting over a certain percentage of bums on seats that it affects the contract. Such as, if Sky/BT is having an adverse effect on the match day fan then the packages to be shown on TV for the next contract are decreased?

Oh, and as talked about on here, we had a what looked like full house for a game last year yet it was reported that we were about 6 or 7 thousand fans short. There didn't look an empty seat in the house so it must be a reporting issue.

As for the article, the Beeb have gone out of their way, under the guidance of the ex-MUTV boss, to try and put us down again with the only thing that they think they can hurt us with. It's pathetic that the Beeb can do this but yet again, like all the sordid stuff that went on in the past, they just carry on regardless.

The police published some figures about the rag attendances about 3 years ago. they were down 10-15 thousand in some games and cup games were worse. Seems Jose's scintillating football has got them flocking back. The BBC is a propaganda outfit across all its outlets involving everything from news to politics to sport. It cannot be trusted to be honest about what day of the week it is.

Interesting, isn't it. Even the match going Rags won't believe that as I know from a first-hand source who admits to their being many empty seats. Like I said earlier, it's normal, and always has been, for people not to turn up, but it seems the RBC has gone full tilt and we can't now trust a thing it says.

I've wondered for a while now why when people do this FoI shit, they use the Police for that info rather than going to the club?

Am listening to this week's episode of a Swedish Premier League pod cast and of course they bring up the BBC report and swallow it whole without any criticism or reflection. The host also claimed that there are far more United supporters than City supporters in Manchester and claimed that City are presenting inflated numbers because we are a propaganda project. Sigh ...

Without any sense of self awareness? Hilarious that they would make such statements then turn around and call us the propaganda project
