Fancy only having £789 million, and there was me thinking Randy was rich.... how embarrassing!!!!!!!
The Fear
Cheers to Beefy for digging out these figures!
The Fear
Beefy digs out all sorts of stuff but I've never seen it make the front page before. Granted most of it is naked ladies but even so.. ;)
The Fear
Odd figures. How can Roman's cash not have changed at all? Did he spend EXACTLY the same amount as he earned? Doubtful, thinking of all the interest alone.
Glad we have a five year plan and aren't banking on strength of cash to win the premiership.
Very interesting that a couple of surprise names like sol how did he get up there?
Good grief! Even the chap at watford has more dosh. Perhaps we should have a whip round for poor Randy. I would like to kick off with a Quid. Anyone else?
What phukwit voted for Kiraly in the keepers poll? Jimmy Rimmer should be no1 but was he not just over 25 years? Has to be Bozzy.
Dear Fear, where did you find this one? And mind if I copy it for our Forum?
Blue is the colour
Too late, pinched it allready. :))
Blue is the colour
found it on our forum, you are more than welcome to nick it, although I don't know the original source which should really be credited!!!
The Fear
Bosnich was one of the finnest shot stoppers in the prem in his good days.
will it ever happen
***** were skint. we need taking over quickly! ;-)
Disaregarding the money talk for a moment, I just have to say that in my opinion, Mr Lerner has turned out to be a godsend.
Agree Glensider. Wouldn't it be nice to see our Randy climbing up the league table on the back of Villa's future success...that would have a very nice symmetry to it I think.....! As long as that doesn't mean moths in his wallet Herbert style of course! :)
10.8 billion still (despite a messy divorce, despite paying a fortune for our players, it's still looking good guys)
I´d be happy with don´t know...10% of that? Ohhhh yes I would.
Blue is the colour
Is sir Alan Sugar still involved at Tottenham? I thought he'd left years ago. Michael BAllack must be laughing £18 million and he doesn't even warm the bench!!
I thought Simon Jordan over at Crystal Palace was a big money guy. I know he cant stand the BCFC board of directors, so I guess that atribute is worth having more than financial strength.
