Chimp:We have reduced season ticket prices by an average of 7%.The big earners are on their way out (Neill has gone, Ljungberg went last year).We made a healthy profit last year, some of which was used to sign Savio.Therefore, rakis is right: It's business as before...
in reply to the comment by wotmenah (U9917592)Almost right except of some legal isues foreclosure never took place but it was all done to clear his debt. They couldn't just take the company without foreclosure but if they foreclosed all his creditors would of had rights so they had to "buy" the clubsecondly the reason the other spoken of buyers never came in was he wanted £200million for West Ham which even i a Hammer think is alot £120million maybe £150million top whack and as for the "arsenal model" rivaly aside for a minute this would be the play young players (noble, collison, tompkins, sear, savio, stanilas there are a couple others on the bench like bonds n'gala) with some experencied heads (parker, upson ,colins etc) to form a team. yeah i think we doing ok there (not like it's the arsenal model though west ham has always had it's academy at it's heart )
lets keep this simple as no one really cares about the legal jargon.For a club they paid £80million for, they are looking sell for £150million. Common sense says it is not going to happen especially in the middle of a recession, which should be stated is effecting all the money men in football. Look at Newcastle and Mike Ashley he is about to take a £100million hit on them.
The bubbles are still floating. May the next buyer have very deep pockets.Thanks for the loyalty Mr Zola, you're the main man.

Out of the frying pan, and into the fire!Everything now hinges on CB Holdings meeting with it's creditors this coming Thursday, and so I wouldn't start counting those chickens just yet, as the bubble will still burst if they do not get the much needed six month extension.
It's called "cooking the books" in terms of administration and deduction of points "the fat lady is still singing very loudly" West Ham, Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea's dependence on Lady Luck grow bigger by the day, how much money do the directors of WHU claim in expenses?
gooner:You really are clueless!There is NO "cooking the books" in terms of administration at West Ham! West Ham were one of numerous businesses owned by Hansa, and because we are a viable, profitable concern we are a prized asset!The reason for the takeover is purely to protect the value of this asset (in other words, to make sure there is no enforced sale of the Club for well below market value)!Do you understand?WHUFC - low debtAFC - HUGE debt!Simples!
Did you know if Arsenal don't qualify for the Champions League they will have to fold as a company!? And then all their fans will start supporting West Ham, Chelsea and Tottenham! HILARIOUS!
