RE: Owt in this?

It’s the same shit we get every year around now methinks.

The optimist in me says perhaps something is happening in the background.

The realist says why the fuck would he bother with a public statement like this, whilst grinning
like a fucking mischievous school kid.

I’ll believe it all when I see it.

Just seen the clip, he is trying not to laugh, looks like he is saying it for a bet.

Bullshit.

I think it's believable.

Which means my concern switches to 'is it the right owner this time'.

I sincerely hope so.

I won't be happy if it's arabic money, or 'a plaything' for some rich Yank. We need someone there, for a reason good for the club, not the individual himself.

Let's see.

Well I was having a rant about how awful Ashley is to a bloke at a wedding a few weeks ago.

He turned out to be Blackburn fan and just said "At least he's not the Venkys.'

I'm tired of explaining things to you Willo.

'Mediocre' is what Sun'lun, Leeds, and yes, Blackburn are.

We're just plain shit under the 'stewardship' of the current cunt. But. You wanted him - I didn't. For all his flaws, Fred was the better option, but you just wouldn;t have it.

Now, IVE FUCKING EXPLAINED YOU RETARD - that I WANT A BETTER OWNER. MY CONCERN IS 'WILL WE GET IT' or will it be WORSE like it was THIS TIME AROUND.

Going on temporary block Willo, until you smell the coffee and stop misinterpting everything in your foggy mind.

One journalist reporting that one of the interested buyers have "reacted badly" to Ashley making takeover talks public knowledge with his sky interview.

I'm hearing reports that it's the American/Jewish 'Home Depot' founder.' Arthur M Blank.

Looking at his wiki, if it's to be believed, he seems to have some good character within him, I would say.

But proof is always in the pudding.

*I have no idea how true any of these things I hear are, of course.

A sale will depend on:

a) How badly someone wants to own it.

b) How badly Ashley really wants to sell it.

and a) comes with a 'and why?' attached to it. That's the part to be at least cautious of. We sure weren't when the current owner bought it.

Cautious? Due diligence is a non-entity.

When Mike turned up he said the right things and, more importantly, he had proof of funds. Let’s not forget that we all welcomed him at the beginning because he was saying the right things. As it transpired, however, he fucked it up royally very soon after the honeymoon period.

It doesn’t matter how many questions of motive that get asked before a sale, things can go tits up very soon after.

Yup. Don't believe for a second Mike gives a toss about the new owner.

He's just looking for credence if things go well in the future.

RE: Owt in this?

When Ashley came in he said he wanted to display his sports direct brand worldwide, everyone assumed he meant by taking us to the top, but he meant putting his signs up everywhere and getting tv coverage.

The reassuring thing is that any potential new owner will know that they won't be able to come in and take the piss like Ashley tried to

They'll know full well that they'll have the full might of the toon army on their case if they do - one thing you can depend on our fans for is not to put up with any shit

The only hope I see in this is, Ashley is the one promoting the sale, in all the other cases, it was always the potential buyers who broke ranks and informed the press, which pissed Ashley off.

This time he is the one controlling the flow of information..
