    Is This Team Connected to Our Rovers?

    In their first season, they managed 4 points in 7 games. Given how amateur clubs at this level work, at some point they might just disappear and we will be the only people to remember that they ever existed.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I went through the accounts and looked up the transfer numbers for past seasons since relegation. The first column is purchases during that year. It should count all guaranteed payments associated with the transfer, regardless of when they have to be paid. The second column is cash spent on transfers, regardless of when the purchase was made. It should include add-on payments made during those periods as well. The third column is cash received from transfers, regardless of when the sale was made. It should also include add-on payments received.

    January transfer window 2020

    Not a surprise at all just like when Henley moved. He's also American so does not count against foreign player limits. Presumably his salary is not too high to make it unreasonable for him to make a move.

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    It will be the first time that the Brereton transfer hits any published accounts so we may get more insight there.

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    Surprised that nobody has mentioned the latest share issue that was posted today: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/07406020/filing-history Looks like another injection of cash totaling 9.625 million.

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    I have done these summaries for a few years so I will do one again, but most of the relevant information has been covered here. Of course, I do accounting related work 250 days a year already and the accounts have to finally be posted on one of the few weekdays where I am not working. As an accountant who prepares financial statements, that is the perspective that I tend to take when looking at accounts and it is always beneficial to also look at the perspectives of people with other backgrounds in finance and accounting. Page number references are to the page in the accounts themselves and not to their page number of the electronic file. Page 14 gives us key information about cash flow for the year. We spent about 700k on transfers and received 1.05m on transfers. We spent about 800k on payoffs, a decrease from the year before and page 6 tells us that new payoffs totaling 400k were agreed on during the year. Page 22 has our purchases for the year at 867,500. Dack was purchased before this period started so this should primarily include the likes of Samuel, Downing, and Bell and it looks like all of our business for this season did not start until July. This season's business, which does not include January since that was after the date of the accounts, resulted in net purchases of 7.6m, which should only cover guaranteed payments. Pages 24 and 25 give us more information about cash we owe or are owed for transfers. We are still owed 1.3m this year and 10k in future years from sales and owe 1.2m this year and 375k in future years. Potential add-ons that we could owe total 2.1m. Obviously, with our purchases in the summer, the scale of transfers will change significantly. Here is a chart of purchases per year: Here is cash related to transfers and payoffs: As expected, turnover decreased due to the difference in media deals in League One as shown on page 20. That should recover this season while Matchday and Commericial income held well and should increase as well this season, but the graph shows just how far we have fallen over time. The wage bill has fallen again, although it figures to increase this season and staffing levels continue to drop as well. After a few seasons with not much in way of transfers, we are back to adding in a lot of expense other than wages. Income should increase to a higher level than our relegation season, but still below the parachute payment days. Our wage bill will probably not be as high as it was during the relegation season either, but presumably will get there soon after new contracts and signings. More importantly, after a few years of clearing out some of the costs from past moves, we are committing ourselves to more costs now and in the near future.

    The MLS players' union releases salary information on all players. Depending on the exchange rate at any given time, he was on about 10,000 pounds per week. The Galaxy had an option to extend his contract for a season, but did not pick it up. In theory, I think this means that another MLS club could pick it up if they want although that does not sound likely. They had a poor season so they are probably looking at using the salary cap space freed up by not having him at the same salary next year for something else.

    ESPN+ for those of us in the United States.

    Yes, you can search for the online service ESPN+. They currently offer one week free trials and you can watch it as a replay if you end up being busy at that time.

    who's going to Ipswich

    ESPN+ is a new subscription online service that moved the Football League distributed games away from their previous free online service. It is possible to get a 7 day free trial.

    Pre Season Matches

    In the United States at least, Eleven Sports has picked up the Liverpool game. It will be live on their Twitch and then delayed on their lightly-subscribed television channel at 5pm EDT.

    I don't know about their football team, but their women's basketball team is coached by a Belgian national and he coaches in English.

    Brad Friedel

    Brad Friedel was named USA U19 Manager. That's not actually a competitive age group in our confederation, so presumably he will be helping players get ready to play for the U-20 team. Interesting that he's moving into management and not just goalkeeper coaching.

    Henning Berg sacked again. Just to throw out a complete guess, I will predict that he turns up at Stabaek next.
