Post by CHEWBACCA » Sat Dec 04, 2021 9:36 pm

Do you think he will help us out financially when we are in the sh1t when we go down ?
If he doesn't and we don't get back up at the first attempt we are fooooked.

Needed more from him when he was here and he didn’t then, so can’t see why he would if we got relegated!

I think it's fair to say that the majority of fans backed SD over MG before the takeover.
You reap what you sow.
Personally I would be chuffed to bits if he came back as chairman

He’s put us in a bit of a predicament in that we have underinvested in the squad for years to ensure a profit was made. Millions in the bank isn’t the way forward in football. Good investment in all areas is far more important to grow the business.

If he hadn't put that capital away could ALK have bought the club?

I will always be grateful for the job he and the other former directors did during a brilliant era under their tenure.

The sh1t we are in now is solely down to neglecting the strengthening of the first team in multiple recent transfer windows.

I'll go along with that totally.


Initially had the club at heart, I have no doubt, but eventually we were right
royally shafted for personal gain I'm afraid.

Has he though?

Invested 180m in 5 seasons. How much more are we really expecting him to invest?

With a wage bill as high as we have where was the extra money going to come from

Old argument but maybe some of the £80m in the bank that he paid himself as part of the transaction?

Agreed to the leveraged buyout and certainly is not out of pocket.

Club goes back to him if we go down, doesn’t it?

Doubt he’s particularly keen but I’m sure he has some sort of plan for that eventuality.

We made solid profits for years, I didn’t expect to just be signing dale stephens in the 2020 summer window, which was when we should have been rebuilding by signing a winger, a centre midfielder, a Nathan Collins. We could then have sold Tarks for good money last summer for good money, would have another wide option, another midfielder.

I thought that was only if ALK couldn't make the payments owed to him?

If the above is true then, sadly, I suspect ALK will sell off our assets to keep hold of the club for a while, but might eventually have to concede defeat after a few years. At which point I'd be glad to have MG back I think.

Nope.
He takes back control of the club if he isn't paid.
Relegation doesn't mean he doesn't get paid, because none of us know the terms of the deal.

You mean the summer window when we were in the middle of lockdown and had no idea of the financial implications. We still do not know the extent at which we lost money that year. I suspect we will be considerably in the red from it.

That's different to him paying himself though, also if he'd agreed to sell the club, Garlick isn't "allowing" anything, the new owners are doing what they want, he doesn't get a say

Drop in matchday revenue, TV income rebates, retail revenue etc all due to Covid.
We didn't even know if last season would go ahead at the time.

We can keep going over this for as long as some of you keep ignoring all the contributing factors for last year's summer trsnsfer window being poor/different to normal.

Pace took the money from the club and used it as part of the deal to pay of Garlick. He also put at least 60m quids worth of debt on club to purchase it. So in theory Pace has taken 140m out of the club but that never seems to get mentioned

If people are going to continue to make false/libellous statements about Garlick then we are right to point this out.

ALK have paid for the club, the how and why they've done it certain ways is yet to be fully revealed.

And it will be a very big surprise if the moment ALK/Pace start actually putting their own money on the table is the moment when the Premier League money disappears. Would be a bit naive to think the contract isn’t the way it is for a very good reason.

From what we know, Garlick agreed to a deal structure that allowed the clubs funds to be given to him to buy his shares.

As the major shareholder before the takeover, the only person that could agree the deal structure was him.

Are you not confusing payment structure with deal structure? That’s completely different. Why would Garlick have any say at all on where Pace is finding the funds from?

All he did was invest the minimum amount of the TV money he thought he could get away with, stashed a load away, on the basis of "Need a new stand/rainy day" and then used it to wholly line his own pocket!

The club was ran within its means financially.
That meant we had money in the bank in the event of a rainy, relegation or, as it turned out, a global pandemic that severely affected the club's revenue.

The wage bill has increased annually and accounted for the majority of the club's out goings.
We've also got a nice shiny training ground, tier 1 academy, proper disabled supporters section and all the other things that have had to be done to the ground and infrastructure over the years.

The club was actually able to get rid of its overdraft facility at the bank because it wasn't used.

If we'd gone down, we weren't going to be the next Rovers etc because our wage bill to turnover was in very good shape.

Now despite all of that, Garlick is now labelled as a greedy sod purely intent on lining his own pocket during his tenure in charge....

Spot on. One thing Garlick is is a very shrewd businessman and very shrewd businessman only think of one thing...themselves. They have the ability to lose any moral conscience on their business deals.
He has got out whilst seriously under investing the squad for several seasons. Hoarding the money which is then used by ALK to buy the club and he walks off with it.
That serious under investment then comes back to bite ALK with relegation and not him and if it goes wrong financially (which is a good possibility)he can walk back in looking like a saviour. It absolutely stinks. Despite all this some of our fans think the sun shines out of his backside. I genuinely despair sometimes.

It's been done to death.

1. Mike Garlick is a Burnley FC company director. He was part fo the board that sanctioned the sale to ALK, he was part of the board that agreed to pay BFC's money ALK and to guarantee ALK's loan, he still is part fo the board.

2. Mike Garlick knew exactly where his money was coming from before he signed the deal to sell his shares.

Every step of the deal for Burnley FC's money to go to ALK and thence to Mike Garlick was supported by Mike Garlick. Whether we all think that was a good thing or not, is a moot point. The point is that he knew what was going on and he was in favour of it. When he was majority shareholder and the club has umpty millions in the bank, he made a fully aware and conscious decision, in his fiduciary duty as company director that the best thing for Burnley FC was to pass a vast fortune to ALK and for ALK to pass it on to Mike Garlick. That is fact.

Nice correlation between him stopping strong squad investment at the same time as certain parts of the fan base began questioning why we weren’t spending hundreds of millions each window.

Those who question the strong cash reserves that we had forget that this was one of the main reasons we were took over/ worth being taken over.

We've also got a nice shiny training ground, tier 1 academy, proper disabled supporters section and all the other things that have had to be done to the ground and infrastructure over the years.

The club was actually able to get rid of its overdraft facility at the bank because it wasn't used.

If we'd gone down, we weren't going to be the next Rovers etc because our wage bill to turnover was in very good shape.

Now despite all of that, Garlick is now labelled as a greedy sod purely intent on lining his own pocket during his tenure in charge....
Your last sentence finally got it right.
All the money in the club account appears to have been included in the sale price, which all went to the directors, leaving them very, very rich and the club totally best and wholly dependent on Prem TV money, which is under threat.

Director who decided who, when, how much?
Majority shareholder.

He picks the club back up at a reduced price because we are no longer in the Prem and struggling financially (with ALK having defaulted due to lack of tv money)
So he is back to square one owning the club with a tidy sum/profit in his back pocket. Now does anyone really think any of the money he would re-invest into the squad? We would be back to penny pinching days and midtable mediocrity in the Championship. If we are lucky!

Or am i being a little too cynical? :roll:

But if they have "defaulted" he wouldn't be getting the money would he. So the "tidy sum/profit in his back pocket" wouldn't be as tidy would it.

Do we think Dyche would stick around if Garlic returned? I can't see it.

I don’t imagine that will be a problem for much longer.

As Pace said on his interview the other day. It’s his job to make sure the club is not relegated

Are you suggesting Dyche might be potted? I really can't see that.

I think the board will be discussing it. If we are in no better of a position by January I think that will be the time

Bloody hope not. There's no guarantee that a new manager would save us and we'd have lost the man who led us to 2nd and 1st in our last two Championship seasons.

It was all over Twitter at the time. Nearly all of the posts have been deleted now. It’s why his family members have deleted there accounts
