    They agree it though and Mowbray has said he still has funds in the budget to use
    Every manager wants more - that's the nature of any business

    Another went to Everton yesterday for about £1.5m too.

    Maddison left because his agent wanted him to leave

    I will swap you your butterscotch flavour for a raspberry one ! Not had instant whip for years - a ban on full fat milk in this allegedly healthy household :(

    Doesn't matter why he left. OP thinks we didn't get as much as we could have but no-one seems to know what we actually got. I'd like to compare that to what the OP thinks a player not considered good enough for the Championship and loaned out to Aberdeen would cost now.

    Then his thinking is clearly flawed - assuming you are correct.
    So why does he and others post such comments when they have no clue ?

    I was sick as an 8 year old after having Butterscotch Angel Delight, it still makes me feel nauseous to this day (some 4 years later).

    My post has been bypassed again, our owners in this particular league, could inject some equity into this club to get us out of this league, they choose not to, because their ambition is clearly not promotion. They proved it in January.

    I wouldn't disagree with your deadline day comment I just don't see people seeing £1B being spent and asking where's our share of it. The majority are more than aware of what league we're in and the constraints that entails.

    I think on here, the majority are more than aware.

    When you step outside into the telegraph or social media it is a whole different ballgame of expectation.

    They have done this last season I believe to cover the club's ongoing losses.

    You really need to think about the nature of SISU and what they are. It isn't their money. They would be investing money belonging to somebody else. That somebody else is going to want a return. I don't think they would want a fairly worthless share in a loss making company in millions of pounds worth of debt which hasn't made a profit for over 20 years.

    It's quite telling that you missed the following paragraph from the text you found on the internet:

    The telegraph has the same few idiots most likely with multiple accounts trolling, they're not representative of the majority of our fan's by any stretch of the imagination. If you take them seriously than more fool you.

    It isn't just there, social media etc.

    People on here whether they love SISU, love the council etc mostly put their points across, they debate things.

    When stepping out into the wider world it isn't the same :(

    You dislike SISU, but you don't come out with some of the wild stuff others do at matches or on social media etc. You debate your point whether I disagree with things or not.

    That's what I'm getting at.

    It affects wages in the Championship though and there is a gulf opening up between League 1 and Championship teams. So trying to entice youngsters down to establish their careers in League 1 is difficult.

    You know what I mean. ;)

    It was an example of different viewpoints.

    Even at games, the amount of rubbish spoken by people is shocking.

    I haven't seen it much, as at the football I tend to just like to go to football and see it as football and leave the politics out. The way people I have seen get worked up, almost so angry they have tears and half of the stuff they are angry about is made up.

    Than
    Thankfully I understand how businesses work but the club still needs to set a realistic budget.......and the fact that you say mowbray and Venus agree to it......what other option is open to them. But hey thank you for the reply captain obvious.

    I think anderson implied it had gone down - the only reason i can think of for using the word 'similar' there are lots on here who must know because last year they knew our budget was 8th best in the league which implies that they must know every teams budget - either that or they are bullshitters. Ticking along at break even isnt a good way of running a business - businesses require investment to grow and the owners should do something to improve turnover. I think we can see where continual budget cuts lead - income reduces, the team gets worse, the number of customers reduces and you can repeat this until the business no longer exists because your customers have all found somewhere else to go. I assume there is actually a strategy behind this approach - maybe they hope the council will blink when CCFC is threatened with closure and that they will offer SISU something they want/demand. Im not second guessing SISU - they cant be as stupid as they appear but then again if they cant set a budget when their business is finance maybe they are.

    Be careful what you say when making analogies on here mate. They're frowned upon... unless it's the arseholes who make them ;)

    I think some people are gone mad, like really were the fans yes we get to bitch and moan but we dont decide the budget or who TM buys and were in league 1, were 5 games in unless were in same position after say 12 games in then go mental and nuts and protest until then lets shut up moaning and be positive see how it goes first. Im pissed off as much as anyone about no investment and where the maddison money is gone but non of us can see the money filtering through the club where its going at least we still have a club. give it a few games in see whats happens!

    Would it be fair to say that Chris may of been over exaggerating on his own predictions?

    Peoples Ignorance to the whole situation never ceases to amaze me. A season ticket holder (of many many years) I know actually referred to Mr Sisu being the problem with the club and the ground issue.
    If you're dealing with that where do you start?

    I think Maddison in a decent footballing side will be worth way more than we sold him for (last 2 games he's played, Norwich have scored 12; very surprised they have offloaded him so quickly)

    The Norwich side Maddison played in against Coventry was their reserve/academy side.
