      Irrespective of what he has done said I think it is totally inappopriate to put peoples names on here especially after all the Dwayne pms

      or is it all hush hush etc
      He said he'd heard 'rumblings' that the FA had withheld some of the play-off money and were going to investigate the club for financial irregularities. (He was semi-backed up by another poster called Jim D who said he'd heard that tickets had been tampered with).
      When pressed he finally admitted his source was an elderly gentleman from the Lincolnshire FA who he'd met in a pub! He didn't know who he was but the locals all vouched for him - so that was alright then.

      See the thread 'Club Finances' for the REAL position (or the false position given out by Knight and his lackeys in the Football League if you're of the same persuasion as BensGrandad)

      As well as posting these 'rumblings' on here he also mentioned them on the radio phone-in apparently (I didn't hear it so I can't comment). As he's now been exposed as a lying fraud we're all waiting to see what he's got to say for himself. Unsurprisingly he's gone quiet although they are 'rumblings' he's re-registered as another user (Spey House or something)

      Hove Band B. No, in this instance it's fully justified. It's been verging on libel and we need to know who we are dealing with.

      I think you are all being a little bit unfair here, Brian is a dyed in the wool Albion fan and was huge supporter of the Gulls Eye team when we had both our financial and legal problems.
      To be fair since Monday's phone-in I have had the same rumour put to me by someone not only very close to the club but also someone who would be viewed as 'credible' by the likes of Paul and Atilla.
      I sincerely hope it is rubbish, a smoke screen put up by the anti-Falmer brigade, but don't start slating good Albion people off on NSC just because you don't like what they say.
      The bottom line is Brian Lisher loves the Albion and only wants what is best for the club, as we all do.

      I think all the bickering on here is mainly occuring because everyone is getting bloody well peed off with how long this falmer business is taking!
      its getting beyond a joke now!
      Anyone agree?

      Er...so show goes out on Monday. Afterwards someone close to the club says "so what's all this about BHA not getting their Cardiff money?"

      Well give me a dirty raincoat and call me Columbo....

      The reason that I haven't replied is nothing to do with me avoiding the issue as that is something (sorry pushed the wrong key) that I would never do and anybody that knows me would agree. If something has to be said say it as you see it is my motto.

      I have maintained that all along it was a rumour that I heard and was asking if anybody else had heard this rumour and if there was any posibility of there being any truth in it.

      Like all Albion fans I would love us to get permission to build Falmer, find the funds to build it and then eventually get into the premiership but I dont think that all three are going to happen.

      I am not in the least worried that John Baine should see fit to disclose my name at least he has proved to many that I am not Greg Stanley.

      I am proud to be a supporter of Brighton and Hove Albion and proud that I cannot be easily bought with the offer of a job I have principals which obviously some of you may not agree with.

      I have always maintained that Dick Knight has done well for the club but am concerned about his ability to take us to the next step due to his lack of finance.

      At that fans meeting at Southwick FC when I had beer thrown over me and I was physically abused because I had the termerity(sp) to suggest that DK had sucked everybody under his wing with promises that other people in football had assured me he didnt have the money to do.

      I wrote to every Club Chairman in the Football League about the saga with A ,B & S a large number of whom replied and more than one expressed concern that we were jumping out of the frying pan into the fire due to DK financial state. Incidentally I also spoke with 3 different people who had tried to buy the club from Archer but he had said the club is not for sale.

      I will be the first to admit that Dk has surpassed my expectations with employing managers who have won us three promotions yes managers and players not DK.

      My reason for this post was that it was a rumour that I had heard which could undermine our future. I wondered if anybody else had heard a similar rumour or indeed if there was any truth in it.

      The people that used to look into such rumours have been 'bought' off by the club. Is is an old trick in business if you have a trouble maker on the shop floor make him a boss and get him on your side. This is what has happened within this club.

      As somebbdoy mentioned earlier about the VAT due on the money from Archer have we paid it or is the VAT man going to come knocking. Why does FBS have to keep baIling the club out with paying wages etc is this all down to the cost of FALMER.

      I believe that the club is in a far worse financial state than we are lead to believe and that our future existence is in grave doubt. Perhaps I am over re-acting would someone please try to convince me otherwise?

      If anybody wishes to argue with me I would be pleased to answer but I am working at the moment and consequently it may take a little time for me to reply should I get called to the bar.

      Good to have you back, BG. Ignore the witch-hunt against you.

      Didn't agree with what you wrote but sooner or later that rumour would have emerged publically and the club would have had to have dealt with it.

      Just hope you concentrate your NSC efforts more on writing about the team's performance where you speak a lot of sense at times.
      "I have been in professional football since I was 16 - that's 33 years this summer. I have seen and done it all. In Brighton, I thought that I had found a club that sat outside the norm. People who love their club but are realistic about their club's prospects in dire circumstances. That appealed to me. That is what I call true loyalty. Supporting the club as you have done through the hard times. I am prepared to be here through these hard times and to develop a squad as I have started to do in preparation for the day that we all move to a new stadium at Falmer. I need your support, patience and understanding in the long-term because there is no quick fix. I hope you will continue to give me that opportunity." Mark McGhee, 17th April 2006
