    I thought that was a car crash interview.

    No need for knowledge and experience in football when a subscription to Sky and a smart son installed at the training ground will do.

    Think JJ might just be looking over his shoulder now - it ain't gonna cost much to get rid of him.

    He's the anti-Roland when it comes to replacing Managers.

    Personally I think people are being v harsh. If he was saying this with us in the play off position then people would probably be agreeing with him. There needs to be a long term shift change to make football clubs more financially viable.

    Key thing for me is his enthusiasm and approach for next season seems high, talk of increasing budget further and at a competitive level for promotion, seems there’s a fair strategy think already in place for next year, that Jacko is clearly in plan for next season etc

    Perhaps I misread it all 


    You're right, if we're in the play off positions a lot would agree with him but, as we all know, we're not even close

    Missed the beginning of the interview re: Jackson and while it's  good IMHO that JJ is staying it does sound like the treaded vote of confidence.

    It just seemed to be "football isn't that complicated and I know best".  Well, his way hasn't worked that well so far.

     He did say the focus was on increasing revenue rather than reducing costs, which is good and a key difference from Duchachatelat (who lost a fortune in less time than Murray et al and with no equivalent success).

    And he DID did accept, despite what some are saying, that winning football was an important part of filling the Valley and so building revenue. 

     Been generally positive about TS but wasn't impressed by what I heard.  Lots of optimism and positively, which I like, a lot less detail as to how things will be improved in the short or medium term.
    Think comments about harshness towards the interview are correct.

    his passion for the club and tenacity for it is positive, albeit annoying if he continues to want to have a hands on role on the business side! 
    Ideally he will realise he needs a CEO - could the CACT interview help? 

    Says Martin Sandgaard knows a lot more about football than himself, and that he believes English football as a business isn’t too complicated and more common sense- which id tend to agree with, albeit you have to get it right! 

    Think his American bravado of ‘I know I’m a good businessman’ chat is frustrating , and yes whilst he’s made good sums of money and started a positive business, doesn’t equate to being able to just breeze through the league

    He said he/we have lost £8M this season.
    He is going to increase the budget next season.
    He wants to break even. 
    Where is the extra £8M+ coming from?
    He seems as deluded as Roland to me, albeit a nice egotist.
    Clearly by being in a higher league

     Sorry. But when the creaks start sounding you have to call them out imo.

    We are well atoned to this aren't we?

    Increased advertising and sponsorship linked to more "eyeballs" in the stadium is part of it as he said in the interview.

    I can't see how that fills the £8m gap on it's own but it does fit in with other rumours about expenditure to increase advertising revenue.

    More centre circle sex should fill the gap, wallop

    And clearly by selling players for a profit.

    I think it's more that he's trying to be/is naturally optimistic and sees all problems as solvable while also being a hard nose businessman who realises that the English football model, as seen in its most extreme form at Derby, doesn't work.


    Whether he can buck that I doubt.

    If everyone else is overspending can we/he do it using a different model.
