I have an overdraft facility, don't use it, but its still there.  If it costs nought / very little why wouldn't you, could help mitigate any cashflow concerns

I believe the E & S article said that we were still in overdraft, & would be for some time.
Mainly to pay wages & ongoing transfer debts.
Tend to think that the "small" overdraft described by Jenkins is significantly larger than he originally indicated.
If it was easy, it wouldn't be Albion

The less he spoke the more he heard, why aren't we like that wise old bird?

The overdraft thing I would guess applies to the footballing side given the football side is just one section of the business in the actual Holdings company, it could be wiped out whenever we wanted to if we chose to do so.

I know he’s probably a busy chap, but you’d think he’d have picked the vile game to attend.

Expectations by this stage are lowered.  I see no evidence of significant inward investment to the club, and any cash we spend is likely to be generated from sales.  We have a little bit to spend, and we might loose players in the window- Dawson might be at risk.  However, on balance I think we will come out about even.

Without being cruel I don't think Lai has contributed much if anything as an owner overall to be honest. I don't see that we've changed much if at all from when Peace was in charge albeit that we lost Peace who was an experienced operator as we found out to our detriment with Willilams and Goodman's failures. Overall, I'd say we're worse off than under Peace for this reason............

I’m disappointed, I was hoping to read that he had sold the Club!
