Is it time for Hemmings to finally go?

But you haven't pointed out where I'm wrong. I urge you to not try and waste my time.
Ooops , sorry, but if you are worried about wasting time maybe you should spend less time on here and more on your studies.
And then you can get out in the big wide world and maybe find the difference between theory and reality.

I don’t think TH wastes much of his time prattling on here, actions speak louder than words, far far too many words on here and fuck all action.....

Something needs to be done with the club, otherwise we will find ourselves in league one before anything. Hemmings and the recruitment team are taking the club backwards not forwards.
Has it crossed your mind Hemmings is safeguarding the future of the club until someone with a serious amount of money takes it on?
I think we would all say thanks for what you have done over many years but until.......

I’d never resort to verbal abuse over an opinion of an owner, but clearly some people aren’t allowed to voice their own opinion on topics.

Take it as a compliment; they can't dispute you so resort to insults .
Imagine wanting a better thing for the club you support, for a the owner to give us the training ground he promised and to not waste any of the money on poor recruitment to help us take the next step.

Otherwise what’s the point of just trudging along. It’s just a shame some people can’t give an argument against it without resulting to abuse, because that’s what a forum is for. To resolve ideas for the better of our club.

(We all know what you have done for this club and we are just wanting that extra mile please for our great club !!! ) but if it’s not there for you and you don’t feel up to it please advertise the club for sale and step aside as easily as you can, both yourself and your family and we will try find someone who wants to go this extra mile as we need it , the fans and everyone involved in PNE deserve it now please do it .

I agree with him wanting the right thing for the club and to push it forwards. I do agree that if we sell major players from our squad then we do need at least half of the funds that they have been sold for to upgrade and patch up the holes they will leave behind.

However, I don’t agree as much with him wanting Hemmings to just chuck money at Neil as our recruitment team recently has been shocking and that needs to be changed before we go all out signing.

Hemmings needs to just put his money in the right areas, such as abroad scouting, finishing off the training ground, funding an u23 side. Rather than giving Neil money to spend on players like Graham Burke and Connor Ripley.

The issue with the U23 squad is that there are pretty high licence fees and then you also need a full backroom staff as well as the players. We would also need more facilities in order to accommodate them.

Is that coming back to the promised Training Facilities which still haven’t been built?

I'm a big Hemmings critic but I'm not especially supportive of the idea of having an U23 side.
Surely the jump from the U18s to championship level is mental. We also have one of the weakest youth systems in the area, meaning we have to overpay for unproven youngsters such as Bayliss and Storey.

Yes but the jump from U23 football to Championship football is also huge. A development side isn’t the bridge that people think it is, hence why the better ones in U23 sides will go out on loan.

But barely none of them do go out for game time, Ledson got his loan cancelled on deadline day. He’s made 1 sub appearance since

To a degree but I'd rather see the money we would spend on U23 invested in the current squad or new training ground at the moment.

If we get to the prem then I would like to see U23

I know people hate rovers but I do wish they'd try to go look at the facilities they have, not just for the first team but also their u23s.

Their U23s facilities, alone, put our first team facilities to shame. We are light years behind and even the, planned, new training ground will bring us nowhere near what they have.

The costs, as you rightly say, of running an u23 squad are enormous..

Time for Hemmings to go .... so seriously who else is going to put £5 to £6 m in every year ? No sign either of any other seriously cashed up Preston fans who want to get involved and it’s a small pool of people who have can spend that kind of money which you’re unlikely to get back. We should praying for the family to stay involved as without that kind of investment, we’re only headed down.

He has offered his opinion
he pumps over £6 million of his own money into the club
whilst we will always want more this is what we’ve got for now and there are absolutely no realistic or tangible other options
so it’s make the best of what we have is it not?
yet another thread for those with PHDs in spending someone else’s money or removing a cash flow and replacing it with, well nothing really

Michael Keane can bankroll us. Can afford fancy letters and postage and all sorts. It’s an odd approach to tell someone you’ve no idea how they run the club or what you’ve sunk into the club but that maybe you should do something else. But he isn’t the first so all power to his elbow.
