I think it is vital that we start playing the kids ,it is obvious that we are not going to spend any money and most of our players are going to be way over the top if we do manage to get promoted

Meanwhile Wolves have just spent £16 million on a new keeper to add to their already impressive squad. What the hell has happened to us?
Its a minor point but I believe they have just agreed a fee for their current keeper. Not a new signing

Yes, sorry. Fair point. The red mist had dropped when I wrote that!

Yet to make an appearence at the Hawthorns this year and only made a handful of appearences while we were in the Premier league (against the top 4) shows he's lack of interest in us and our targets and shows his interest in the bright lights of the Premier league and its glamorous clubs. I remember the excitement when he took over. It couldn't of gone much worse under his leadership.

Maybe he'll become so disinterested that he'll sell us off cheaply to someone who cares - ooh look there's a flying pig!

I think that the original motivation for buying English clubs was that the Chinese Leadership wants to establish a league system that enables it to win the world cup.  Classic authoritarian regime trope of excusing clampdowns on freedom of speech etc for trophy victories and expansion abroad.


Then suddenly General Secretary (for life) Xi JinPing decides that too much foreign exchange was leaving the country and reined all that spending in.  You don't argue with Secretary Xi even if you're a multi-millionaire.  So we would seem to be in limbo.

To be honest I’m not sure what his wealth is. Im sure he’s a very rich man but it’s probably on paper, and he’s money is locked away in businesses etc. but again like many have said he never said he would go on a spending spree, in fact he clearly states in the one interview when he brought it would be pretty much business as usual

It's as if some posters never bothered listening to what he said when he bought us and are judging because he hasn't done the things they've decided he should do, rather than judging him on what he said he would do.

Maybe he's here to also talk about any targets in the January window & money available.

Who knows, he might give us a free drink again, doubt it though.

On another related subject, has any St holders had their £10/5 voucher as per usual?

If we are still in the mix form January he needs to back us sensiblely if he wants his money back. If we don't get back out first shot i fear it may take some time.

Apparently on his hols if media are to be believed, could anyone recommend a few sightseeing opportunities for him and the family around West Midlands?

The "astute" businessman Lai could go to the German Market and buy it for £200m and think he is actually buying Germany because peace told him it was. But, he'd only commit to the purchase of it after doing his due diligence (reading the beano). Peace would then be a consultant/chancellor for a "year" to watch over his latest wunderbar investment, for a good salary of course.

His holiday must be to West Bromwich then given he was at the game last night and had meetings with Moore today

Ah well, he was expecting us to beat Brentford quite comfortably, then we would have seen the grinning picture of him with his thumb up in the back of a car, being whisked away for another couple of years. His message would have been, carry on as you are.
I think Villa will turn us over, had he been here for that the crowd would have demanded he spend in the January window. Heaven forbid.
I wonder if he get's those three ghosts that used to haunt Jezza?

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
