I know that some on here will think that I a a wee bit biased but given where we were when Dave King took over and where we are now, he must be the best Chairman we have had in recent times.

He has led us from financial ruin with no team or structure to a position of stability with a solid foundation.

After a couple of poor appointments, he has brought in Mark Allen and then Stevie G and provided the financial support to assemble a really strong squad that is light years away from last year.

Court cases galore take the gloss off but just perhaps he is the street fighter that we needed to wrestle control away from Ashley, Green, Whyte etc?

Murray led us to the cliff edge and everyone since has bee ruinous for the club until DK formed a dodgy alliance to wrestle control away from the previous regime - Snow White he is not but he ain't Darth Vader either!

IOM - the floor is all yours!

I was with you till you started moaning about Murray. Did you complain when we where signing all those great players? Not one person did. He chased a dream for us and only just failed twice.

Dave King takes a lot of stick, without him and the three bears we would still have ashley and the other mugs👍.

Good start so far. Two friendlies 75 k fans make about one million
Four qualifiers make at least four million from 200 k fans, tv, corporate, catering etc. Also 700 k from UEFA so far
Let's get past Ufa in to groups ten million to be made, not sure many expected this
All we need to do is sell our tops, we are slowly getting there.
Our fans are the greatest.

Southend, no I didn’t complain about Murray and wouldn’t criticise him now either because he did what he thought was right and gave some good years.

If you read my post, I am comparing how far DK has taken the club (from very lowly and weak situation) whereas Murray took over a relatively stable and successful club and made it more successful until the crash.

David Murray deceived the fans and relied on fans trust and his businesses to hide this. He kept telling everyone how much money he personally put into the club when that wasn’t the case. He then sold the club to one of the biggest charlatans in the country despite being told by members of the board not too.

Look DK has his faults but what he and the rest of the board has done whilst being hamstrung with ridiculous contracts is nothing short of remarkable. We’ve went all in on SG and this team. A gamble that was worth taking imo and I know it’s early but who on here would have thought we were 2 games away from the Europa league.
Let that sink in for a minute.

Jboy. Look at the figures for reaching the group stages. We will not make 10s of millions. Maybe 6-7 at a push.

17 Aug 2018 11:16:36
Marco never said tens of millions. I said we would make ten million
Let's see how it pans out
I'd say about five million gate receipts, 2.3 million for getting there.
Tv money, not a lot, corporate, catering etc
Money for wins, draws hopefully, so let's be optimistic, IF we get there.

Totally agree colster.

The figures are in Euros but still:

Play-off round elimination: €300,000
Base fee for group stage: €2,920,000
Group match victory: €570,000
Group match draw: €190,000
Group winners: €1,000,000
Group runners-up: €500,000

It could add up rather quickly in the group stage with the base fee for making the groups.
If a ticket was £20 x 50,000 fans that equals £1m per game revenue.

So let's say £2.6m for reaching, £3m for gate receipts and be negative and say we win 1 and draw 1 game in the group, that's a total of £6.36m plus TV, sponsorship and what not.

Let's compare that to last season and see how far we have progressed! In SG we trust!

17 Aug 2018 14:11:33
out of 6 games i'd be hoping for a lot more than 1 win and 1 draw lol.

Any money in Europe for us at the minute is a bonus. Hopefully pay off some debts and improve squad again in January.

Colster I said on here a month or so ago that I didn't think we hat a cat in hells chance of getting to the group stage! How wrong I was it's been a staggeringly good start from Stevie and the boys and I for 1 can't wait to see what lies in wait for us this season, 10/ 10 so far it's been brilliant so far.

Let’s get to the group stage first gentlemen. talk about counting your chickens?
