Nothing has changed. We sit in the box seat as we watch our squad getting smaller and younger as well as in desperate need of a whole new spine in the team. Everybody knows it needs decent investment.
Here's a couple things that annoy me about their ownership:-
New stand - addressing the stadium issue was part of the conditions on the purchase of the club. After exploring all avenues they made their move. Got planning and then lent money to the club to fund a new stand. So what we have is a 120m loan that has to be paid back in 5 years to FSG. It will use the clubs own income to pay back that loan. Just bear in mind for a minute that when they do eventually leave they will recoup this. Also bear in mind the term of the loan is most likely fixed and if the new stand isn't making enough to repay the loan payments it's going to have to come from somewhere, right?! Yep, the clubs annual budget looks like a solid bet.
ARE - the whole ticket price statement in relation to the Annie road end redevelopment was distasteful. Showed how out of touch they are with the City. And at the moment looks like a dead duck.
Recruitment - this is by far the most annoying aspect of their ownership for me. Moneyball or however you want to describe it, it isn't working - yet the whole football operation is geared towards it (can we have a pulling hair out emoji?).
Indifferent to poor for me.
