    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 

    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.
    The only clubs that break even or get close to breaking even in The Championship are very soon relegated.
    He's sounding exactly like RD now, thinking he can run the club with people who have no idea and he can run it at break even and head to the premier League. No chance.
    But..if there aren’t people like TS who
    think they can buck the trend and try until the cost gets too high who else is going to step in?

    We need deluded wealthy people don’t we?

    Clearly by being in a higher league 
    And clearly by selling players for a profit.
    That's the first rule in business. If you sell assets at a loss, you're destined to fail

    Am I the only person who thinks this sounds slightly strange?

    Only thinks a few signings are required for a top 2 next season.

    3rd highest budget in league one?

    He said he’s lost 8m this season and that can’t continue.

    Jackson already building and planning for next season in terms of transfers etc.

    mentioning about derby situation.
    This is the bit that worries me.  I think we’ll finish mid table at best this season, maybe 10th at a push.  We finished 7th last season and if we were only a few players off last season, we’re quite far off that this season.  

    A few more players and we’ll probably have a moderately better season than this one and maybe finish just outside the play offs

    This is where I am starting to fear for the grand plan, because unless we get 6/7 quality players in over the summer, we’ll be at home to Shrewsbury again in the 23/24 season.  TS is talking up breaking even and growing revenue.  That won’t be the case if we’re still in League One in 2 years

    Let’s see come the summer recruitment.  I’m not confident at the moment 
    Surely you realised that all our under 23s will be world beaters, so we will not have to buy anyone and can sell one or two for profit  :)

    Of course, and the hard part is getting recruitment right. It's been our biggest issue in the last few years, with the right signings we wouldn't be 16th in L1.

    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.
    If we only get a few players in there will be reduced attendances next season.
    As it stands I can't see more than 6/7K S/T holders next season if what he says happens.
    Even if there are larger freebie attendances next season I doubt increased advertising and sponsorship would amount to £500K and probably far less.

    How are we going to get to cat 1 with the academy, and when we will get there, scant details provided.

    I think we'll just miss out by about 30 points  :)

    Fuck me there is less pessimism on the Ukrainian threads

    That would be offering suggestions on where he could improve not just assuming he's bonkers because regardless of what he's saying.

    Would he be kissing up to RD because he's got plans on getting hold of the assets? Out foxing the fox

    In summary he said, "We only need a few players, we have the U23's, he wants to break even & doesn't need over paid football people running the club, because it's just common sense. Still reckons we can reach The Prem".
    He's morphed into Roland.
    He will sell any U23 who is useful.  As he has proved this year. 
    And he says he's still lost £8M!

    Strange way of breaking even when he goes and buys the women's  team , who incidently are worth watching,  unlike the men.
    Two separate teams, even if they belong under one club.

    He's obviously referring to the men's team.

    Plenty of threads on here with those suggestions as well you know!

    Suspect the £8m is operating loss. If so the Burstow fee won’t count.

    Any inkling how much the Burstow sale generated?

    If you can genuinely point out what part of his plan makes sense please do. Until then I can't see him as anything other than a more charismatic and well intended Roland Mark 2.

    I like him. I want him to succeed. But based on the interview I see nothing that suggests he actually will.
    I mean that's a pretty big difference off the bat and is what his buying him more time than Roland ever got.

    And I agree re: the other comments about his positivity and passion so far.  It’s great.  It’s just not enough 
    Yep. That's the thing there's a difference between trying hard to want make things work, which I do think he has done up to a point and doing a good job. Working hard, doesn't mean that you're working effectively.

      The problem I have with it all is that he doesn't have anyone in place to tell him where he may or may not be going wrong.

    And from what I've just heard he definitely needs that type of person in his sphere.

    Also, he's not really saying anything different from what he was saying 18 months ago. It really doesn't sound very progressive to me.
    Just a bloke who's stumbled his way into the football scene who's going to have a lot of fun and lose a lot of money along the way.
    Without listening to it yet but going by comments on here it seems he admits he knows fuck all about football but junior does so they're going to try & fudge their way through. Crying out for a CEO.

    The Under 23s ? That's what they were all saying last summer, pathway to the first team. That worked out well didn't it. If this is the planning in action JJ may as well jump ship now.

    (Hmm that may seem like an attack on your post CE, it wasn't  :D )

    Be lucky to get 6000 season ticket holders next season.
    I'll be doing most of the away games next season.

    It is a big difference, and it has bought him time. But that won't last forever and nor will the money. This could potentially end extremely badly, regardless of his good intentions.
