I still don’t get how JB, who clearly knows how to make a lot of money from a business, saw his toilet handle business literally go down the crapper?!

I suspect like most manufacturing it has been superseded by developing countries.
That is no reflection on Jeff’s business acumen, your honour.

Wonderful AFKALS - I was in awe until I noticed you spelt curent incorrectly and undid all your good work! :joy::rofl:

Arses - right compound interest model !

I’ve bodged this around to get a year on year scenario, based on compound interest rate of around 6.8% pa

Whatever method you use it’s over £5m


#186

Great stuff…well done


#187

5 or 6 million out of our club and counting . Why does he not just do the right thing and slash the rent by half to give the club and supporters a bit of hope for the future at least.


#188

Because he isn’t really our number one fan, he lies, he is his own number one fan.


#189

Of course, he could correct my assumptions in the interests of transparency.


#190

Anybody any idea of how much interest you make a year from 6 million quid ?


#191

You lose 100% interest in building a competitive football team.


#192

You’re probably better off investing in some sort of pension fund.


#193

In Cyprus up to 20%


#194

It’s his lack of interest in the football team and the club’s future that’s the problem!


#195

Thank you AFKALS

So £5.5m rent + loans interest + transfer fees


#196

Now that’s a pretty decent playing budget :sunglasses:


#197

So it could be estimated that Bonser has taken at least £10m out of the club?

• £6m rent
• £4m in transfer fees, commercial profits, loan interest etc…

Total & utter leech


#198

All the do gooders …he’s done this he’s done that for the club…he’s also raped the club of any decent chance of competing on a regular basis in this league ( never mind the pie in the sky talk of the championship ) other than lucky breaks here and there from players that have turned out good more by luck than judgment.


#199

Bonser is definitely a do-badder :smile:


#200

Nope. Don’t exaggerate. It makes it easier for him to defend. He’s taken the rent. Everything else is documented too. He does not take transfer fees, he may take loan interest, and profits are ploughed back into the club… the accounts say so, even if they are as transparent as mud.


#201

Good post …there is no need to exaggerate what he takes. The rent is enough, The lack of transparency is largely to blame for these wilder theories though and the Club should learn from this but I doubt they will.
