Read Vinny and Jeff's section.

Vinny similar guff to last year. Is now bench marking season tickets by the gap between the most expensive and cheapest.

Won't go back to kits every other year as apparently fans are fashion conscious and like spending £100 a year and would be disappointed to not have a change every year.

Admits Steve Bull stand is shit, but nothing they can do about it

More expensive (positioned as good, better, best) food and drink options for next season.

Jeff headlines.
Looking to float eventually
Lots of Esports/records/clothing bollocks
Sell to buy - FFP blah blah
To interest fans in China you need something Asian - as suspected Hwang has fuck all to do with football
Repeatedly mentioned Wolverhampton has only 200k people- totally uninterested in local/matchgoing fans
Best means best run, not best team
Regrets biggest club rhetoric when originally came.

None of the others interest me particularly so I've not read them. Appreciate the above is probably a cynical take

So the plan is to float us, along with the rest of the FSG portfolio

I've skim read, but it seems that Jeff considers the success of the wolves 'brand' more important than the success of wolves football club. With the constraint being that it all has to be self funded.

I think we knew all this anyway, at least we have PL football I suppose. Relegation would do a big amount of damage to the brand!

The interesting thing would be would they spend money if we’re in the bottom 3 in January? I imagine not, as they’ll just sell up if we go down

Absolute bollocks from Vinny and Jeff Shi. Fucking shite.

Slagging off the fans in the ground as not being on the same page as the board as we want more success on the pitch and don't give a fucking shit about eSports. Fuck off.

Vinny "debunking" the Leicester price comparison takes a grand total of 1 minute checking the 2022/2023 offer on the Leicester club website to be shown up as complete nonsense. Every single ticket in the ends at the King Power is cheaper than we are offering for tickets in the South and North Banks. Bar hospitality there is not a single ticket in the King Power more expensive than our most expensive standard ticket of £786. Stop lying Vinny.

A float of WWFC is a surprising revelation. I assume that would be in the UK which means they’ll have to adhere to a lot of governance rules and be more transparent. It’ll also restrict the “financial massaging” they can do in relation to the accounts.

I guess that is a move to try “Americanize” the club and open up another potential method of fundraising but I am not sure there will be deep enough pockets for anything meaningful to come out of share sales (eg I think Green Bay Packers did a stock sale to fund / try fund stadium improvements - see here if curious: https://www.packers.com/news/packers-sixth-stock-sale-nearing-end)

Just listened to Bruno. Not really much new that we haven’t heard him say before or that we couldn’t already see really.

Clearly wants to have a squad that allows him to be flexible with systems but has toned down what that looks like, now saying he’s happy with 13/14 senior pros, 3/4 like Chiquinho/Toti/Mosquera and then academy products like Cundle.

There isn't anything too restrictive about being on the UK stock exchange. The issue comes with the fact that you are supposed to be running the club for the benefit of the shareholders, which gets murky in a sporting enterprise.

Wait the Scott Sellars one is only 12 minutes long? That’s hilarious

The Lage one is full of absolute gibberish. He can't communicate properly, it's a huge problem.

Also it's not 1998 any more, clubs don't float any more for a good reason.

As I (we?) suspected we are now in a hiatus until we are relegated. E-sports and sub standard Asian players are what interests the owners not entertaining football for legacy fans.

Fosun have turned into the dreadful owners we assumed they would be.

Out of light cometh darkness.

Seriously if Fosun are at the point now where they give such little of a shit about the club that they don't even try and act passionate in an in-house interview - maybe they should sell up.
