Well he said when we survived last season that he wasn't selling until we won a trophy or qualified for the CL. But really he will only sell when he is offered his money back, which won't happen while we are out of the premier league, all these people wanting to see us go down thinking it will force him to sell are idiots IMO.
I think after last season he decided he was going to stop fucking about and gave the club access to it's money, and we spent £100m overall. His problem is he knows nothing about football and has put his trust in the wrong people, our board is a total joke, they hired a joke manager, and Alan Carr's dad being the only one that knows anything about football was given way too much power, McClaren was hired because he was his mate and he was buying players with no character, and some deals look dodgy to me.
Ideally we would bring in a new MD to restructure things off the pitch, and Rafa would be given the power to restructure everything on the football side of things, fix the academy, he can choose a new chief scout, everything.
