In one of their comments, in a previous thread, Richard or Abee asked Azeem to be "brave", and that may not have been about getting a new manager. Was it about accepting an offer to get out...
If that was in a post then It may have been Abee said that but certainly not me
OK, thanks Richard. Must have been Abee.
Do you think Azeem should have listened to Abee?

The board of directors would of discussed all possible eventualities and prepared budgets for next season accordingly.
Relegation will not effect the club to any huge financial degree as long as we budget sensibly and at least have a reasonable season.
But of course it's not yet over mathmatically and one of the clubs in the bottom 4 may escape the drop; and hopefully that's us.
That's not what Azeem says in his column.

Judging by this season, that won't happen.

Genuine question, Brian - will we be able to remain full time or will we have to go part time?

Just because it's not being talked about publicly doesn't mean that the club haven't prepared for the inevitable.
Where did I write the word "publicly"?

Donny I think your taking the wording of Shahids comment about not discussing relegation to literally. I read it (as have others) that he is talking about discussing it in the media, the programme, in the public domain etc....

As Brian has posted private discussions within the boardroom and especially in regards to budgeting will of course have included the consequences of us getting relegated, they would have to at this stage in the season whether that actually happens or not. In fact if you want to re read his programme notes he has actually confirmed that the possibility of relegation has even been taken into account when he and Mark have visited and renewed contracts with sponsors.

Hopefully you can now see the context that he meant his non discussion statement to be taken in.

Just another waste of space THREAD. Please think before you post and please no more "you said I said ,no you didn't , yes I did stuff.... Let's all try and grow up together and not for most of us to be thinking we're working for the BBC financial department along with MOTD and other such Progs...... How's Brexit getting on?

Depends on a number of factors, eh! But judging by last night's programme notes posted today by Alex, if Abee [or anybody else] was thinking of a consortium taking over, it won't happen.

According to Shahid's column in last night's programme - "Discussions about relegation are not on the agenda until it's mathematically impossible to stay up".

Just quoting a fact.
Would seem about right!

Every other sane person would be planning for relegation as its virtually a certainty.

Clearly they haven't learnt from this season when signings were done last minute with the squad unorganised and massively under prepared.
This!
That!

I have no recollection at all and don't believe that I have ever said that. I cannot think of a context where I would have written such a thing.

I am not involved in any consortium and have no knowledge of who the 'not fit and proper' members of the consortium are.

In any event I would hope that I would not come under the classification of 'not fit and proper' but if that's what people wish to think then there's nothing I can do about it.

OK. So, Azeem uses words with some care; and why not.

I was wondering if the board should be making two sets of plans for next season - one for if we survive and one for if we go down?
What you mean like our Government with brexit?

No plans for "no deal" which is looking the favourite right now
