How are we able to say he can sign players before we have sold someone to take us out of the embargo?
Venkys have the option to write the debt off if they choose to?

Because we're set to come out of FFP in January when the transfer window starts.

The last I remember reading was that we stood a good chance of getting FFP in january if we sold another player for a sum over £4 mil. If that's true then we could expect a sale.

Unless of course we've somehow lumped a huge ammount of our losses into last years accounts so as to show an improvement in this years...

It should be interesting to see what happens anyway.

The rumor-mill says Lambert Chose Blackburn, as he would have more control at Rovers than QPR or Fulham; just speculation, but does that mean decisions on player acquisitions/transfers?

It means that he won't have a director of football sticking his oar in as he would in the shape of Les Ferdinand at QPR.

Allows Lambert control of buying as well as football operations. Can allow for a more seamless set-up, certainly allows for more joined up thinking. Both approaches can work, depends on level of cooperation. Take a look at Liverpool under Rodgers and the notorious "transfer committee", Warburton leaving Brentford due to losing control over transfers is another good example.

Managers like autonomy.

Immensely pleased with the addition of Alan Irvine to the coaching team. Immensely well respected within the game.

As appointments go, this new team couldn't be much stronger on paper.

Pleased with Lambert and Irvine taking the reigns. I believe they will get more out of the team than Bowyer could and both have a wealth of experience of the game. Only other person I would have been pleased with would be Pearson but he is too much of a loose cannon and we don't need any more negative press

Lambert seemed to be the best choice out of the main candiates linked to the role - I prefer him to Tim Sherwood anyway, who has done very little as a manager so far to justify the hype. Lambert's Norwich team played good football and he did a great job there. His last season at Villa was a disaster but hopefully that was just a blip. With Irvine as his No. 2 we have a strong management team in my view, with a proven track-record of taking a team up to the PL and keeping them there.

I'm also pleased to see how far we've come that we can actually attract a manager of this quality - credit must go to Bowyer for that. 2 years ago no credible manager would've touched us with a barge pole. It's also pleasing that he picked us over QPR and Fulham.

I'm quietly optimistic that we can perhaps make the play-offs this season, but I would expect a strong promotion push next year if not.

Agreed... I think I can drop the 'ish' from my name now after 5 shocking years... (I was banned during the Kean era, been trying to behave ever since ;) haha)

that would be he fine with me.. I'd like to know how some clubs owners are able to wave the debts but we seem to be in debt to technically ourselves*... write the debt off, loan more, and lets get back up!
