What are we not being told?

Is the fat one actually making any attempts to sell us?

Ignoring Liverpool I read today someone is about to bid £300 million for..... Wait for it..... Blackburn fucking Rovers.

I'm confused why the fuck would anyone by a club who couldn't even fill their ground regularly when winning the league. Talk about setting fire to your money!

Grrrrrrr

No one wants to bur Blackburn for 300 mil, its actually alot less. That bar stool wants to invest 30 mil in the club, like for improved facilities and transfers and what not

300 mil for transfers...

Maybe Ashley thinks doing it this way he will get his money back. Why else would he not sell if he was being offered money. He obviously is making enough money to keep his investment safe.

Nobody wants to buy us.

Why would anybody want to buy a club that has a history of hating it's owners and chairman.

Anybody wanting to buy a football club is only interested in making money.

We have made it plain and simple what we think of those people.

I heard that Blackburn story on the radio and was equally confused.

I think it's a little more sinister than 'nobody wants to buy us'. I think that no self-respecting person wants to do business with the likes of Ashley and Llambias - their reputations stink and people do not want anything to do with these sleazy, lying slimeballs.

Ashley doesn't want to sell for a reasonable price, if he's going to sell it will be for a lot of money. In the meantime the club is paying him back those interest free loans.

That sounds about right....you just know that those 2 odious Bastards would just keep moving the goalposts.

Blackburn? For Pete's sake man.

That said, the risk of us going bust under Ashley is next to zero. It won't happen. Pompey had about 74 owners last year and look what happened to them. Being bought out doesn't necessaraly mean all roses. As we know.

RE: What are we not being told?

Ashley is a business man. All other talk is irrelevant. He will either keep us until he has made his money back or sell us to a buyer who will provide him with a profit.

All this talk of conspiracies and our fans alleged attitude to owners is to my mind a little far fetched. Nearly all fans of all clubs moan at their owners. If this alone put off buyers why are they queueing up to buy Liverpool?

Me too, its a bit underhanded, if you or I didn't pay taxes we'd be imprisoned, how do football clubs get away with it?

The Prem essentially write their own rules, and their rules state that only footballing related debts to football institutions will be paid in full, and first. Everybody else can whistle, this is what the tax people are challenging.

RE: What are we not being told?

Ashley has found out he cant sell the club (did he ever want to ? Barry Moat FFS) he will not harm harm his investment, he is a business man and he is not daft. He is a fat fucking cockney cunt who does not have a clue about football and should never have gotten involved, but he is no mug he knows business and i doubt he bought a football club to make money its impossible isnt it.

There are a few PL clubs that do report a profit though mate, am positive Wigan & Spurs are among them, or were among them, there is no way Spurs still can be the way they have been throwing coin around over the last couple of years.

A settled wage bill, and sustained PL status for a club the size of ours would no doubt be a nice little earner. Its the restlessness of the fans that would rock the boat, and rightly so, if we just have to linger around year after year to line the pockets of whichever bastard happens to have the keys.

RE: What are we not being told?

I cant understand why the fat cunt has not made the club a plc surely with investors he would not be paying all the money out and getting his money in ??

RE: What are we not being told?

He wants to control the club entirely and answer to no one (mind that didnt stop Shepherd).

Also there are far more stringent reporting rules for PLC's, making everything, well, more public.
