    That smile of surprise
  2. Our debt has increased 133% to £474.1 million

    No other football club in the Premier League take share dividends. It is ALL invested into the clubs, that's the difference between Glazer and other ownership.
  3. Our debt has increased 133% to £474.1 million

    So a few things related to my comment: 1. Companies are not automatically required to pay dividends 2. Companies halt dividends primarily for good reasons. 3. This discussion (and my reply) arises from taking divien payouts during the global pandemic financial climate, not normal operations...

    Dividends are not owed, a company decides if it pays out dividends or not.
  5. Our debt has increased 133% to £474.1 million

    Debt is good. For two reasons: 1. Debt is a MUCH cheaper financing option than equity. 2. You can deduct the interest on the debt from corporate taxes Debt is bad for one reason: 1. Debt is risk. Investors first and foremost look at a companys debt when gauging ROI. Anything above a ratio of...
  6. A Solskjaer Masterclass. Whoop Whoop!!!

    This is factually not true the past 8 months.
  7. Erling Haaland or Jadon Sancho?

    Haaaland has the biggest shot-on-target% and chancesxGoals in football. It doesn't matter if the opposition is the local pubteam or Bayern Munich , he will score a goal nearly every single game he plays. I want Jadon Sancho here desperately, but Haaland is a player that chooses a simple pass...
  8. Our debt has increased 133% to £474.1 million

    You're technically right and wrong, but forgetting something important in terms of the ownership of the club. The Glazer family controls some the shares, and the board. 1. The board of the company can suspend dividend payouts for a number of reason. There will be a provision in the company...
  9. Erling Haaland | Dortmund player

    Haaland isn't a penalty box player. He certainly shoots there but he's very involved in the play before the team gets there.
  10. Being "right" about a player or manager is not more important than winning games

  12. Getting carried away after a win against PSG, it seems like the caf has learned nothing

    PSG played the Champions League final just over 2 months ago. It's not the result, its the WAY we won that's important here. People aren't stupid, we all know that this is still not going to be perfect or we will win ever game, but I am sure as shit going to bask in the absolute DELIGHT of a...
  13. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    Tottenham with Harry - 1.9 goals per game. Tottenham without Harry - 1.2 goals per game. He made Poch's entire career. He is so far and beyond Tottenhams most important player they are a mid-table team without him. prior to 2019. In Tottenham, Harry Kane is the closest thing they have to God.
  14. Being "right" about a player or manager is not more important than winning games

    Polarization fueled by confirmation bias and anonymity on the internet all contribute to toxic debate environments. Essentially, if people had to put their actual names behind their posts this place would both become a lot more serious and reflected, but also a lot more quiet since the threshold...
  15. So what happens with our backline once Maguire is back in the mix?

    Well first of all I think we should be vary that Tuanzebe could pick up a injury again, he's come back from a long long injury break. But all that time away, and he does that? Absolutely mental. It's a very interesting problem magnified by Maguire being the captain. IF - this is the version...
