So what can we expect next?

Unread post by PSumbler »

The last in our series of articles looking at the impact of Covid-19 on football and the Swans

All week on Planet Swans we have been looking at the impact of Covid-19 on football from transfers to life outside the Premier League and, over the last two days, the subject closest to our heart and that is Swansea City.

The biggest problem the club has imo, is cash turnover. They will have, in hand, the revenue from season ticket sales, plus online turnover from merchandise.

But operating costs must be massive, especially wages.

I wonder if the management will ask the playing staff to enter into some compromise until folk are left back in the stadium?

Also, if the punters are not allowed back in at the start of the season, and subsequently miss a/some game[s] then the club may have to provide refunds.

Not looking good.

Sadly i don't see the owners investing anything at best maybe balancing the books with a top up but i think they will rely on outgoing transfers.

They have taken us from a mid table prem side to a over achieving Championship side with no thanks to them but Cooper's contacts in the game.

Next season's decisions on and off the pitch my define our short and long term future, We are going to lose the whole spine if the side from the 19/20 season which i would be surprised if Brewster and Gallagher return and with VDH and Ayew almost certainly both going.

So potentially we could be patched up with further young loanees and journeymen next season so what now are the supporters expectations for next season? Have we found our true level in the league and is there a real danger we could be in a relegation scrap next season?

It is going to be the same for everyone.
We are not carrying major debts yet.
Peripheral staff may well be made redundant.
Excess playing and coaching staff could well be cut and the academy suspended.
If we have 'found our level' as a mid-table Championship side so be it. For older fans being an established second tier club was a dream.

20,000 fans will each give 2000 quid and the fans will buyout the yanks for 40 million

Won't happen but nice to dream


I always tell the truth, even when I lie

The club has about 30 owners, the majority of which made their investment in a PL team which was subsequently relegated. It was a bad investment.

The majority of the owners don’t care two hoots about football, or Swansea (wherever that is).

I don’t see anything investable in SCFC at the moment. What would investors get for their money? You know for a fact if you invest your money in a large financial organisation like a bank, there’s a very good chance you’ll get a return on your investment.

Talking of refunds (& not wanting to derail thread) has anyone heard about the 80 odd quid from last season?

Personally I haven't heard anything & I want it returned out of principal.

Edit

I just received an email and transferred the money into my bank account which I will donate to a cancer charity.
