  1. Simply a lack of quality. That’s nothing to do with Farke. If you want a competitive team you need ownership with the financial capability of matching that ambition.
  2. To achieve what he has with the playing assets available to him is simply genius. He is in no danger whatsoever. Quite the best worst team we’re ever likely to see.

    Strikers next season

    The cashflows from Pukki’s disposal will help to grow further our broadcasting income cash pile.

    Top 26

    It is not our natural place. In modern football this is crucially determined by the ambition and resources of clubs’ owners. Would many regard Bournemouth’s natural position as a tier one club? I think not. But its owners have made it so.

    European Team Of The Month

    Fabulous player and a genius manager. Neither of them provided with the assets they needed to succeed in the PL. Suspect our broadcasting cash pile will grow yet further come the Summer.

    Genuinely hate to say it

    What Farke has managed to extract from his players assets is simply genius.

    Sheffield United

    With the board’s strategic objective of finishing in the top 26, presumably, finishing but failing in the playoffs fully meets the board’s strategic objective. Our broadcasting cash pile will soon evaporate in such circumstances. It is the lack of further investment that never gave Farke a chance this season.

    Amadou off?

    60k a week saving hugely helpful in further enhancing our burgeoning broadcasting income cash pile

    Sheffield United

    A shiny ground in the chumps or competing in the prem. I suspect the former is the predominant ambition of our fans.

    Sheffield United

    Purple, with a timing difference presumably any corporation tax payable in the Prem will be recovered by offsetting future trading losses following relegation in the chumps (assuming we don’t have taxable trading losses brought forward at the moment which I suspect we have). The broadcasting income cash pile (not being invested in players) presumably will be used to offset the net cash outflow on player wages, beyond that supported by the two years of parachute payments in the chumps. Without external investment we simply cannot compete. Farke should be given a medal for what he has achieved with the assets at his disposal.

    Sheffield United

    We use our broadcasting cash pile to subsidise player wages in the chumps. Sheffield Utd’s broadcasting cash pile is used to pay player wages in the prem. You couldn’t make it up.

    Amadou off?

    In the absence of external investment if we can augment the broadcasting income cash pile by saving on players’ wages and/or transfer receipts, the longer we can subsidise our operating model back in the chumps.

    Jamal to Palace?

    Helpful in adding to our cash pile of broadcasting income to mitigate player wages back in the chumps. New investment required.
  14. Highland Canary

    We can still do this!

    Too open. Defence not upgraded in the Summer. We’ll finish 20th but with a huge broadcasting cash pile we can fritter away on player wages back in the chumps. New investment required.

    Turning on Farke

    In no sense should Farke be perceived as a problem. He wasn’t given a chance. Sadly, I suspect that many will happily applaud being a relatively big fish in the chumps rather than competing in the prem.

    What makes Farke special then?

    Farke never had a chance with the defenders at his disposal. We were never going to score at the same rate in the premier league. None of the four centre backs at his disposal last August, bar perhaps Klose, are of premier league quality. But the board prioritised building a cash pile of broadcasting income currently flowing in tranches into the club. He has worked miracles with the playersp at his disposal. We should be advocating building a statue of Farke rather than criticising him or the players.
  17. Highland Canary

    What makes Farke special then?

    He is a managerial genius but never had a chance with the (lack of) backing he received. Look to the owners not the manager or players if you have an issue. But Tottenham’s stadium is magnificent. Pity we won’t be there next season.

    Lukas Rupp

    Not obviously a signing that will dent the cash pile.

    Delia simply never ever learns

    Farke is a managerial genius. The failure at Old Trafford is simply down to an unwillingness to invest in the playing squad. That decision sits squarely with the board. But at least we have a massive pile of broadcasting cash.
  20. Highland Canary

    We failed because....

    Our huge cash pile, courtesy of the broadcasters, is continuing to expand in the bank rather than being converted into premier league quality centre backs.

    Max Aarons

    The savings on player wages will be helpful in growing the cash pile.

    Srbeny off?

    The savings on player wages will be helpful in growing the cash pile.

    Learning lessons

    Farke is a managerial genius. That he has coached the level of performance out of this squad is nothing short of miraculous. The reason for our failure lies firmly in the boardroom where the strategy simply appears to be to watch cash accumulate. Presumably, this is to mitigate the cost of player wages back in the chumps.
  24. Rhodes would have done a job as number two to Pukki but, presumably, we either lacked the ambition to sign him and/or couldn’t afford his wages in the Prem.
