Barry will be happy.
The Chinese have spoken (by proxy) and have Cleared *Everything Up.
Adam Blackmore's summary.
There will be investment off the pitch in the coming year over the next year, 2, 3, 5 whatever the plan is.
There is no panic about the current situation in the league table or on the pitch.
MP's job is not under threat because of extenuating circumstances wrt a VvD shadow hanging over the club for 6 months.
Everyone is doing their job and this is a phase - but Ralph says they each have to do their job better.
That's what we needed to start 2018 - Ralph has pulled the wool from under Sanchez by Clearing Everything Up.
Ralph has spoken for 20 minutes, said nothing, put no new facts into the public domain and now his job is done until 2019, or May or when we sack someone or buy someone.
Everything is cleared up thanks to a 20 minute....
...He said fucking nothing.
He said fucking nothing!
Ralph spoke about nothing for 20 minutes during a (presumably) planned "let's get this out in the public domain to cheer the fans up" sort of a way, and he's used weasel-words and euphemisms about aligning corporate-chakras whilst not looking in the moment, but holistically and retrospectively looking forward to solutions to leave us...exactly where we were.
Or has he?
There will be investment "off the pitch".
By implication, that means there may not be investment on the pitch, but it might mean that SMS gets a coat of paint (presumably red - but you know these 'foreign' owners and their lucky colours).
Anyway, that was disappointing and a missed opportunity, but it changes nothing for me as I wasn't (overly) panicking before.
*By everything I of course mean nothing.
