Gibson is always trying to sue other clubs and then says he’s a football man whilst doing it

Which other clubs in the last 18 years? besides Derby, who have been found guilty by the EFL of financial fraud. The EFL offered no compensation to clubs who suffered.

This is a bloke who hired multiple managers on big contracts, spent vast amounts on players and they can’t even half fill their ground, and then accusers other clubs of spending beyond their means Crazy

How many high profile managers have Forest gone through in recent years?  - over 30k crowd against Forest this year and 31k home tickets sold for Saturday - Boro don't do offers like £1 tickets that many other Champ clubs do to boost their attendances despite being in an area of relative economic deprivation. In recent years both Bournemouth and Villa also broke financial regulations to get promotion, but nothing was done about their fraudulent promotions. Other teams in the promotion race effectively suffered in 2015 and 2018 & 19.

Fecking idiot that bloke, he’s still hounding Derby even now despite them having been punished multiple times over - the dispute with Derby has been sorted. Derby were paying wages way beyond their means and it was costing other clubs points as stated by Football League. Mel Morris was the idiot as highlighted by curreny Derby manager Wayne Rooney.

Oh and he’s pressured the efl into changing ffp rules because... his club is about to fall foul of the current rules - wages bill is no higher than that at Forest.

I wouldn’t listen to that idiot on anything financial and waffling about morals. - Most geniune fans would rather have Steve Gibson as their chairman than the rulers of Saudi or a Russian billionaire whose wealth comes from supplying diesel and steel for Putin's tanks.

Boro's wage bill is around £1.8m/month while Chelsea's is around £28m/month.

Didn't Chelsea sign up for the proposed European Super League - the one that excluded 99.9% of other clubs in Europe pof ever joining?

The billionaire clubs practically have the trophies sewn up for themselves nowadays - Leicester have managed a couple of successes but that is becoming harder and harder.

Abramovich doesn't supply diesel or oil. He made the bulk of his money buying and selling an oil company decades ago. A company he owns 29% of 'may' have supplied steel for Putin's tanks according to the UK government. May.

Britain has supplied the Saudis with £20bn in arms and technical training since 2015 and they are using them to obliterate their next door neighbour, Yemen, but that's not at all similar is it? Boris going over there next week to agree a new oil deal to replace the Russian gas it's suddenly immoral to buy. Laughable hypocrisy all round from people being spoon-fed their opinions by a complicit media.

Where does the money comes from for the large Russian Army? The Russian Federation does not own oil and gas companies. The wealth of the country is highly centralised with private individuals.

What does Abramovich currently own in Russia?

The oil company you mention cost him around £150m and he sold it for around £3.5bn 8 years later according to Panorama- he must be a fantastic businessman or something else was going on.

I didn't think the Saudi Royal Family (which is effectively their Government) were fit and proper owners neither. Two wrongs don't make a right.

The bottom line is a lot of greenwashing is going on in these football ownership deals.

Analyst you appear to be living in the past. You said he supplies diesel when he hasn't owned a petro company for a long time. You said he supplies steel when a company he owns a minority stake in 'may' have supplied steel. It really is ridiculous to try to attach blame for an invasion to someone who supplied steel for tanks that weren't even built when he supplied it. There must be hundreds of companies complicit in all of the UK's invasions over the years if that's the barometer for blame.

'The Russian Federation does not own oil or gas companies' - why don't you do a little google research before writing absolute nonsense. They own  majority stakes in Gazprom and Rosneft their biggest gas and oil companies. Gazprom is the biggest gas company in the world. Both are publicly traded, so they wouldn't own all the shares. They moved to re-nationalise their oil and gas industries years ago after the sell-off to the likes of Abramovich.

The money for the army, which is a relatively small expense in terms of GDP, comes from oil and gas exports, by far their biggest source of revenue.

I never indicated that Abramovich was anything other than corrupt. All I did was correct the uninformed nonsense you were spouting.

Report Analyst March 18, 2022 1:53 AM GMT
Lurka - I am mainly living in the current - Abramovich's assets have been very recently frozen by the UK Governement because the UK Governement believe he is helping the Russian Federation's war effort - it may be steel and nickel nowadays but it has been oil and aluminium in the past for vicious Russian wars in Checha etc. His taxes also fuel the Russian war effort, ordinary Russians are relatively poor but there are an large elite group of billionaires. Please watch the news. There are Russian billionaires who have not been sanctioned as they are not helping the Russian war effort, thats not my opinion but the UK Government's opinion and actions.

SS - Mainly subjective opinions stated there and fairly selective facts. The Riverside holds around 32k nowadays and there are 16,500 season ticket holders paying an average of £500 per season ticket (look at early bird season tickets currently on MFC website if you don't believe me). My maths say that is over 50% attendance just on season ticket holders. The last league game against Luton was around 24k that's approx 75% capacity. The club siffers a little because it has the equal largest stadium in the league. Boro's ticket prices are one of the highest in the league if not the highest. They have lost players in the recent past because they don't pay enough example offering George Friend and Adam Clayton less than Birmingham were willing to give them, the same with Danny Ayala who was offered more by Blackburn than Boro were willing to offer him.
Rhodes was sold for the same fee as he was bought. Bamford was bought for £6m and sold for £10m (inc add ons such as Leeds getting promotion) I did think we sold him cheap and was not happy with his sale. Assomabalonga was a complete loss, but when Spence is likely sold for £15m in the Summer it will be recovered. Spence was a free from Fulham. Staying on finance the FA Cup run this year has generated around £3.5m so far or around 18% of the annual wage bill. (Mansfield away, Man United away, Spurs at Home, Chelsea at home). The Club did waste money in the 2017-19 period, but were not paying the wages Villa and Derby were paying. Boro in that period were on parachute payments and Villa and Derby were not which amazed me at the time. In time both Villa and Derby were shown to be financially cheating, by the EFL. It is very difficult for Championship clubs not on parachute payments to compete for promotion, there is an allowed level of subsidy which was raised in the Covid season's 2019/20 and 2020/21. Steve Gibson does subsidise the club within these limits and there has been major sales of players Adama Troare (£20m inc add ons) and Ben Gibson (£15m) in recent years. The largest fee paid in the 2019-21 period was around £1.5m for Dykesteel. The training facilities are paid for by non footballing income from the Rockcliffe Park Complex (hotel, restaurants and major golf course) also used by England and Scotland National teams. My guess is every Championship club not in receipt of parachute payments is subsidised.

The war in Chechnya has got nothing to do with the current sanctions and the UK govt haven't made any mention of that or any definitive finding that he is helping the war effort in Ukraine, only that a company he holds a 29% stake in (which hasn't been sanctioned) *may* have supplied steel for tanks and goods and services that *could* contribute to the war effort. There are something like 500 Russians on the sanctions list, 200 added since the invasion.

Gibson just gets better....

Middlesbrough will be donating its share of gate receipts from the Chelsea FA Cup quarter-final clash at the Riverside to humanitarian aid in Ukraine. The club announced their charitable pledge on the eve of the game.

The Riverside Stadium is at full capacity for the visit of Thomas Tuchel's Blues in the last eight of the competition. With sanctions against Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich meaning Chelsea only managed to sell sub-700 tickets, Boro were able to put another 3,200 home tickets on sale earlier this week.

FA Cup rules means that clubs share gate receipts 45% each, with the other 10% going into an FA central fund. It's unknown at this stage what will happen with Chelsea's split of the money, with the club currently unable to make money owing to the sanctions against Abramovich.

Firstly - that there are people on here that believe his money is from legimate sources.

Secondly - believe some of his resources are not helping the Russian Government, today.

Thirdly - use deflection techniques like look at what the British Government or Saudi Governement has done to defend him or say there are others like him to defend him.

It is a matter of public knowledge that Roman made his fortune from buying Russian companies for a song upon the collapse of communism.

Its also a fact that the system from which the supposed oligarchs profited was put in place by the west. Notably corporate America, who themselves were hoping to get their hands on Russian oil and gas.
Some such as Margaret Thatcher and her friend Mikael Gorbachev counselled agaisnt the extreme privatisation policies which were employed. Unfortunately Gorbachev got ousted by Boris Yeltsin. Who was too pi553d to notice he was destroying his country.

This whole business of going after Roman is a very anglo saxon, northern european form of retribution.
A pointless, puritanical act designed to cause maximum headlines aimed at a class of rich foreigners who are unlikely to be inconvenienced at all.

It's ridiculous because Britain is all tough and principled with smaller countries but not with Russia. Sanctioning a football club doesn't help Ukraine one bit, a token gesture. An invasion by Putin and overnight principles and sanctions against oligarchs suddenly materialise, not because of anything they've done either. Gross hypocrisy all round.

A . Rudiger... Asked for a transfer. The least loyal, trustworthy, or dependable people will be the first to begin abandoning a failing endeavor. Times of crisis will test the loyalty of the people you've hired. Rats abandon a sinking ship first.

Rudiger is out of contract at the end of the season and was always leaving. Thus, he didn't hand in a transfer request. Same with Christensen. They were talking with foreign clubs since January, before the sanctions. If Chelsea valued either of them they should have tied them down before their final year, esp after they won the CL. Rudiger wasn't considered irreplaceable until Tuchel came along. Christensen has never been so considered.

The reported £4.25bn seems a ridiculous price and means that pumping £1.5bn in would have been a worthy investment (if it wasn't for the sanctions and because it was largely well-spent - contrast with Everton whose owner has pumped money in at a similar rate). Interesting to see where the money goes.

It's £2.5bn for the club and another £1.75bn invested into the ground and club etc, so £2.5bn. That's probably slightly below market value. £4.25bn is thus a bollócks figure.
