Coventry City taken over


Recommended Posts

I’d have no issues with Mike Ashley buying us. He’d get us turning a profit within two years. As long as any promotion to the top flight is tempered and accepted that we might yo-yo a bit, I think we’d all take that within 5 years.

I think he’d do due diligence, realise he couldn’t get us turning a profit that quick and not bother

Last time I checked, admittedly a few years ago now, Newcastle had posted a profit in the Premier League on a regular basis.

However, they did make a loss during their most recent season in the Championship, despite making huge gains on player transfers.

Therefore, "profitable within two years" would likely only be possible with back to back promotions.

I'm up for that!

The club is currently self sufficient, as far as I know, with little or no funding from DC so not that much of a step and he'll be looking at long term profit.

Invest to get to Prem, lap up some lovely sky cash then sell
