UEFA Cup and Pedro's budget

51 posts in this topic

Be 30-35k for qualifiers and 40-45k for Group Stages, I reckon, depending on opposition.

if we get to the group stages it will be a miracle and while pedro still needs to invest in the squad anyway, doing it on the back of some hopeful European money is not they way to budget for it.

thats 3 games I think we'll sell out given it's a return after so long. 50k at £25 a ticket x 3 games = £3.75

 

You have the income (plus hospitality & tv money?). You've missed out one tiny wee thing.................EXPENDITURE! 3 x plane hires, visas, scouting trips, hotels and training for our whole entourage, cost of three full capacity match days at Ibrox, appearance fees, win bonuses, staff costs, marketing, promotion, stadium staff, security, policing etc etc etc

It's been so long since we've played in Europe I'd expect sell outs every game

I hope you're right, I just don't see us selling out a first round tie against Bala Town, even if it is our first game back.

I can't stand this talk of "gambling" it's not a gamble it's an investment

It's the boards job to invest in the Club, they claim Caixinha was their first choice as manager,  £6-8 million is imo the least we need to compete with celtic.

If investing in Caixinha is thought of as a gamble then why was he the number one choice?

If the board don't want to do their job and invest then why are the fans putting up with them

And if the Europa League cash comes in as OP suggests then it would be bonus cash so why would it not be invested.

I don't know where I stand yet when  it comes to Caixinha,  but the board have said he's their man so they need to put their money where there mouth is and stop bullshitting us. We shouldn't be waiting to see if we get the Europa league, they should have a set budget for squad investment and and European money or money from player sales should be seen as a bonus and at least 2/3 of it invested back in the squad

Starting a rhetoric of 'Investing lots is a gamble' is just preparing to make excuses for the board when they don't invest

No way 10 mill plus. Quarter of that possibly. Hate to be negative but unless some big signings can't see us getting past 2nd, 3rd round of qualifying. The fact we will be unseeded and some of the teams mentioned on a post here makes it extremely tricky.

Without the group stages we will probably lose money.

First home game could be a sell out, just for the occasion of it, the others won't be.

We're not getting anywhere near 50k for Europa League qualifiers anyway. 

MAybe the first one as we'll be back in Europe but aye there will be a drop. The early season qualifiers have been bought previously by Premier Sports and I'm guessing the majority would rather attend the game than start a subscription with them.

If you can't even get the name of the competition right, why should anyone pay attention to anything else you've said?

You've totally missed out the play off round(4th round of qualifying)... not that we will make it that far anyway.

Seen this on Twitter the other day. A list of potential opponents as things stand at the moment. For those thinking we are a good bet for getting to the group stages, still the same confidence after seeing this ?

That's just depressing! :-(

in answer to the OP, no i don't think it is worth the gamble as spending a few million will only marginally increase our already slim chances of qualifying!

we should focus on building a team to consistently win games in the SPL next year. If we are consistent against the rest of the SPL, the old firm games will take care of themselves!

I seem to remember a certain Craig Whyte hoping we'd make it into the group stages of either UEFA competition, but Super Ally fucked it up for him. I won't say what happened after that, because I get very upset about it. Don't gamble with money we don't have yet!

I'd be shocked if we got past the first qualifying round.

people seem to be focussing on the word gamble from the OP. However you could easily argue that we need to board to find 6-8 million on being competitive in our own league anyway.  Whether the board will find it is debatable, but our team needs that type of investment.
