If the club’s problems are as severe as Ed is telling us they are, shouldn’t the board come clean with the club’s supporters and admit we’re in a bad street and what they are planning to do to do about it ?
Surely we deserve the truth, don’t we?

{Ed002's Note - The board have no responsibility to try to explain to the fans given the fans struggle to understand even the most basic issues.}

Just think of the walt Disney character Donald duck-nuff said.

Are you literally only here to wind people up Ed? There is absolutely no need to constantly call us all idiots as if you're a member of MENSA.
The powers that be wouldn't release any statements while there is zero action against them. Considering there are still absolutely no firm reports or evidence of breaking the rules why would they invite trouble?

So there you have it folks, Villa supporters are all too unintelligent to understand even the most basic of issues.
You referred to Dean Smith as being the village idiot didn’t you Class of 82, well apparently it’s us that are the idiots my friend.

RK mate ask yourself 1 question why did we sell Villa Park if we didn't have any problems with FFP?

20 Feb 2020 12:53:04
I accept that we have financial issues what I don’t understand is if it’s so transparent as Ed seems to think why haven’t the powers that be punished us before now?

{Ed002's Note - They will once this season’s figures have been digested and a decision made whether or not separate charges are to be made for the sale of the ground.}

Surely if the rules aren’t clear ie re the charges for the sale of the ground then surely the league can’t punish us as if a decision is taken at the end of the process then retrospective punishment is surely against natural justice as we aren’t clear as to what rule we are breaking.

{Ed002's Note - The rules are based on the value of the asset being sold - so they are clear enough for the likes of Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday to both be charged over the sales of the grounds.}

I'm not saying we didn't need to make the sale to make up for the deficit primarily created by the previous regimes but I'm fed up of being talked down to (especially as I am in fact an accountant) .
Also, as Ed himself says the situations are different for his own examples. Derby and Wednesday both valued their stadiums above our valuation which was ludicrous. The Villa property portfolio is actually more valuable than we're giving it credit for.
Also, without being in on the deal how can we be sure NSWE didn't create an exceptionally long leasehold to protect the land? Until all undisclosed figures are revealed then every single person, Ed's included, is speculating.
140mill transfer fees is not 140mill in the annual accounts for this year alone. There will still be charges to the P&L for Scott Hogan's fee for instance and there'll be charges in 3 years time for Wesley as it will be spread.

{Ed002's Note - As an "accountant" one would have thought that you would be bright enough to understand the value of the assets are stand alone issues and unrelated to each other it is not about a comparison between charges, it is about the value of the asset being correct or not - I should not really need to explain that to an "accountant". I rather doubt that many folks would want you doing the accounts. I am sure the inland revenue and those responsible for assessing the sustainability compliance will be interested in Aston Villa's "undisclosed figures". Your previous posts demonstrate you don't comprehend FFP.}
