    Gaspode reacted to duncanjwitham in EFL appeal   
    Basically, all we did is instead of doing an equal share each year (e.g. 25% per year on a 4 year contract), we split it differently depending on how likely we were to be able to sell the player. So someone like Vydra, we might have done something like 5%, 5%, 5%, 85%.  On the grounds that a player doesn’t plummet in value like that in real terms. Which was backed up when we sold him for a profit 2 years into that contract.  Other players we would have split differently - Huddlestone was probably done in equal shares per year since we had no chance of getting money for him.  Obviously some didn’t work as planned, and we would have taken a big hit in the final year when we let them leave on a free instead of selling them.

    I know what's actually happening, but I'm not going to tell you in case it upsets the bloke down the chip shop that told me to keep it a secret.....

    Here’s where I’m at on writing an open letter to the club as the owner of this forum.
    We have thousands of members, all with their own unique views which we provide, in my opinion, one of the best platforms online to air which can be and is seen by the club.
    Unlike traditional supporters groups I am not an elected chairman/spokesman, but simply the owner that created this platform.
    My voice holds no more weight than any other fan on this forum.
    Fans joined this forum to discuss the club with fellow fans, the forum name dcfcfans does not stand for or against any kind of viewpoint/agenda. It is quite simply a platform to air your views.
    Traditional supporters groups, as far as I’m aware do not have online platforms outside of their social media accounts for their members voices to be heard. 
    For their collective voices to be heard, open letters such as Punjabi Rams have written would be the best way.
    If any members on this forum do feel they want to create an open letter to the club, feel free, this is your platform to be heard. 
    All I ask is that it is made clear that the letter is signed on behalf of fans that have given the letter a like and not on behalf of the full community to avoid any kind of disagreements.
    As I say, this platform does contain views from both ends of the spectrum and would be impossible to collectively create a letter that is unanimously agreed upon.

    Thanks this is it, he comes on here giving it the ‘big i am’ and gets snotty when we don’t all bow to him and his hints of issues. This site is full of intelligent experienced knowledgeable individuals and it is insulting to suggest any of us have our head in the sand.  His posts are borderline wummery

    I think you are misinterpreting why people have selected that answer.
    It is not because, as you keep claiming, they are burying their head in the sand.
    It is because we are sick and tired of everything that is hanging over our club, whether that be failed takeovers, FFP or EFL charges and appeals. We just want to go back to the club being about football.
    You keep saying we need to be aware of what's happening and we should do something about it.
    No one - including you - is freakin' telling us what's happening.
    So, what on earth do you expect us to do???

    It’s funny, one reply to him saying PL teams operate a similar policy and he replies one minute later saying they don’t.
    Numerous other replies asking him how he has arrived at his figures given transfers are largely undisclosed and asking for a bit more detail met with radio silence.

    Just what I've heard. I don't claim to be in the know. 
    I've heard this and will pass it on. And what I've heard is Alonso is not taking over this football club.
    I have absolutely no idea who is. But it's not going to be Alonso.

    Where's the bloke from the other day who reckoned he knew everything but didn't want to betray any confidences by making it public? Perhaps he could tell us what's happening?
