I can translate it pretty well from Italian, but I'm no good at all this financial stuff so all I get from it is that our finances seem to be pretty bad.

I wonder if this is a new situation, or if Cairo has simply run through his "play money" budget for the club. He's too successful a businessman not to have realized the situation when he bought the club. He must have known what he was getting into. The other alternative is that he was genuinely surprised by the awful effect of playing in such a small venue (less ticket revenue). Hard to say, but increasingly distressing.

Anytime an owner says something to the effect that, "Anyone who wants to buy me out and try their hand is welcome," that's a very bad sign.

I don't think Delle Alpi would offer you (significantly) more ticket revenue.

It goes to show how hard it is to make a decent business out of calcio. Started from scratch just a few years ago a now already this...

Not that you are in danger, Cairo seems like a decent president, but you know.

Not bigotting
