    I thought I'd take a look. Two stats worth mentioning. There are 10 grounds in the Scottish Premiership that have a capacity of more than 10,000, the National League has five. So I'm not sure how the statement that the stadia are on a par holds water.
    Television revenue. Scottish deal delivers £540k for each match covered according to the BBC, Premier Sports - who cover National League games - have not been able to extend television payments beyond the base £5k per match agreed in the contract. So, water through the sieve on that one as well.
    I'm not really accusing you of talking balls but I am telling you that the two main points on which your argument seems to hang are not valid.

    8 million! That’s a ridiculous sum of money for a bonus to anyone, yet alone a championship manager! Ain’t my money but Christ I wouldn’t be throwing that around! Would love gerrard here, would be a serious coup, but I just can’t see it happening. Really don’t think he’d take it, he’ll show loyalty to rangers I’m sure. Would be exciting if it did happen mind, to be able to attract the players he’ll be able to- we won’t lose much in that respect when we lose Lampard if so. Would probably be one of the few options available that would genuinely get me excited- provided he plays decent football of course, I haven’t seen much of rangers so should hope the board make sure of that. Other than that though, that would be a serious appointment. Would certainly lessen the blow of losing Lampard. Good to see Mel would stick to his guns of not going for dinosaurs too, tho I would have some reservations again about lack of experience, would rather someone with more than one season to their name myself but hey, better than pardew! Just don’t think anything money wise will tempt him away. It’s just too unrealistic imo to try for him, he’ll be happy there so why would he jump to our nightmare job? Not gonna happen, barely worth trying. 
    Surely we haven’t really decided he’s the first choice yet to replace Lampard. We’ve not even had the official approach yet, shouldn’t even really be considering managers until that happens. Certainly not deciding on our first choice until lampards gone and we’ve spoken to our main options, which we can’t until the position is vacant! Particularly when that first choice is as unrealistic as gerrard, need to be careful to know our level I feel. Wouldnt have thought financial details like this would be thought about until our decision is made and we open contract talks either, it’s a very odd story.  We can obviously afford it if we go up mind, so whatever gets the right men here I guess! 
    Still couldn’t see why gerrard would take a championship job though. He’d get a prem job by taking us up so I guess there’s that, but I’d think he could get there without having to dip down to the second tier. If he wants to succeed klopp one day, for one he’ll need patience cause he ain’t going anywhere soon, and secondly he’ll need to be managing high in the prem. Itll take a lot to get us there, near miracle in fact. Don’t see why he’d risk it, he could get a better job if he waits and wins summat at rangers.
    7m for Lampard and his coaching staff would be seriously good business mind as that’ll be mental money for championship coaches, almost unbelievably good. Kudos to Mel if he pulls that off, would be serious business from him. Should help us be able to afford gerrard if by some miracle he did want to join in terms of compo needed to get him out of rangers. Is a good point that a big name in charge will attract the investors we’ve been looking for for a while. Could help us with a bigger budget next year which could be vital.

    We got 1 million for Luke Thomas ffs. I'm glad you're not in charge of our transfers, he's young and has a lot of potential, and if Celtic sell Tierney they'll be getting a big windfall, we should be asking north of 5 million from them for him.

    Guess it does make sense Chelsea could’ve been waiting for Lampard to get back from his holidays before making the official approach, wouldn’t want to talk business I wouldn’t suspect while away. Hopefully things crack on this week then, we need this resolved with a new man in ASAP before next Monday. Get that approach in tomorrow chelsea and stop pissing around, if nothing else to stop the insanity of this thread! And so we can make our own approaches before the best options go!
    Worrying that the telegraph says it’s affecting our transfer plans, we don’t want to be missing out on our top targets and ending up down our list of options because of the speculation. Hopefully a week today everything is sorted, one way or another. All these ex pros commenting gets to me as well, so much disrespect about. Let’s get rid of the circus. Talk when the deal is done, not beforehand. They’ll be saying they knew it all along if it all goes wrong I’m sure. Bankers

    He only gets the bonus if he gets us promoted. If that happens Mel could give Gerrard his £8 million bonus and then get another £8 mill in cash, pile it up in the middle of Pride Park, set fire to it and still easily be able to afford it.

    For now, take it all with a pinch of salt. The guy who’s writing for the Evening Standard and the talksport Guy are angling for the ‘we broke the story first’ line.
    Go with the DET and Percy lines that we haven’t been approached but pretty much ‘expecting it’. Then get annoyed at Chelsea for acting like silly buggers.

    Clearly we don’t think he’s ready for a role in the first team over Forsyth and Malone, but I can’t help but feel if Celtic want him- who have probably a marginally stronger squad than ours, then perhaps that’s underrating his ability. Don’t get me wrong if we’re gonna loan him out a loan to Celtic would be an excellent move given he’s settled up in Scotland, but I think he’s worthy of a go here, or maybe he’ll never get one. Perhaps we’re looking to sell him to them, again tho I think that’d seem ridiculous never really having given him a chance. Talks over any deal will still be in an early stage discussing what all parties want with this one so there’ll be a way to go yet, but I think this one could be likely, certainly over Aberdeen and rangers without doubt.
    No idea whether this Tierney lad is any good but if arsenal are in for him and it seems like a coup then he must be decent, particularly to be worth than 25 mil- tho understandable with his age. Obviously a very good player with that demand in him, arsenal will do well to sign him, clearly fighting hard for him so he’s gotta be good to turn down 15m.  If they’re losing someone that good then replacing with lowe its probs gonna be a severe downgrade. Be interesting to see what we respond to their enquiry- do we still rate him as having a future chance or are we gonna get shot like we did with Thomas? Be surprised given the options they surely have available if Celtic do come in mind, I’m not convinced he’s that good yet, doesn’t read the game well enough yet, there’s better out there for them. Mind if their only other link so far is some bloke from Iran then maybe I’m mistaken, that would be a bizzare move.
    Suppose it’ll depend on how the new manager rates him, both long term and short term, as to what happens here.

    Imagine if you, MRisG, had just enjoyed an exciting debut season managing Plymouth Argyle. You’d really settled into the area and you’d made no secret of the fact that you’d really enjoyed your time there. Everyone knows that you’re a lifelong lifelong Derby fan and, a week before Plymouth’s biggest game of the season, you get asked about managing Derby, a team who still have a manager under contract and a play-off final to contest. Naturally, you dismiss the speculation and reiterate that you’re under contract at a club that you feel part of. As anyone would.
    Fast forward two weeks and the Derby job is now available. Mel Morris asks you to come in and help the club at a difficult time. You still mean every word of what you said about your time at Plymouth, but you know that the opportunity to manage the club you love might never come again. Plymouth are in a better place than you found them in and the fans love you.
    Surely you take the job? The sentiment about Plymouth remains, however, and you still retain a fondness for the club. I don’t see why people are painting Frank to be a traitor.
