Re: Return of Afobe

As the club were quite relaxed and only wanted him on loan does strongly suggest they have other marquee signings in mind in the summer.

How ambitious are Fosun? We'll find out in the summer. I think in the PL we'll have more scope on FFP.

Offering Neves an updated contract of 150K per week and 2-3 pre-prepared top signings and a word from Mendes to stay put, might give us another season of Neves.

Due to FFP Fosun have to carefully grow the business and the revenue base. They cannot just do a Man City or Chelski, where they spent buckets of cash, got success, and the stadium and were able to grow the revenue base more rapidly.

This is a business. Hopefully Fosun will be able to build a multi-million pound football subsidiary in Wolverhampton. Can we provide enough bums on seats?

Wins puts bums on seats.
Winning is of course more difficult to achieve in the Premiership,but longer term that it´s what it takes.
The novelty of Prem wears off if it comes from years of just mere survival.
Look at Sandwell and Stoke for example.In the end it get´s boring for the middle of the road fan just to see the club scrap by yet another season.

I found it more fun when we were winning in League One(hate that´s division three)than when we were losing in the Premier League.

For now,we are the top club in the West Midlands.IF Villa doesn´t find a way to go up this season,they could very well be in trouble.Sandwells is stale with a current owner not equipped for a decent assult on the Premiership.Bloos has never been a factor.

This could provide us with more opportunity regarding new fans.They will continue to come and the fan base will grow IF we keep on winning and develops into a top six-eight Premiership team.

It´s the benchmark and it will take alot of investments,but Fosun seems to understand this.
