They are claiming the takeover is all but signed and new will break in the next week or so.

I went through the whole bullshit claims and he is adamant that its done and its come from the accounts department within the club.

If this is indeed true - happy fucking days.

*Potentially* 'Happy Days'.

*It all depends on who, and why, they want the club. We thought exactly that, 11 years ago.

And, Tuesday 18th/Wednesday 19th is the date I have for the news break.

Kenyon is the man and if he is involved then I am happy to believe we will become a sporting club again, as opposed to whatever the fuck we are and have been in the last decade.

I understand the party has ties to Atlanta, so it may not be Kenyon.

But as for yourself, my information isn't quite 'direct'.

I still can't allow myself to get all excited until I see the new owner holding a scarf aloft on the turf at SJP.

Too many near misses over the last few seasons...

Agree.

But also concern remains 'what is it being bought 'for''.

Fuunily enough TAB - I've a bottle of very good Cava sat in the fridge for ages, waiting for this moment. IF, the new owners clearly signal good intentions for the club.

putting that kind of money in can only mean they want to achieve things surely to fuck, a few flair players, having ago in the cups and not worrying about relegation every season would be a great start

On football focus just now they said that the 'interested party' are around 100 million short of the asking price. Confused

Let’s face it, the BBC haven’t had their finger on the pulse for decades. They just copy shit from SSN.

I thought they had to prove they had the finances before they could look at the books?
