    I honestly don't know what their goal is with trying to buy all these clubs.

    It's evident they cant run ours.

    I'd say the January window was a massive indication of this.

    I doubt Jim Ratcliffe will be the buyer if they do sell us.

    Who knows these Billionaires work in different circles. They'll have someone lined up to sell the club to. It won't even make the press until it's a done deal.

    Agree. He's recently said he wouldn't buy an English Club, including Manchester United if of course
    it ever became available.

    Thing is though, if they do sell, would the new owners be any different of worse?

    You'd hope for better. It looks better for Conway et al's portfolio if they leave don't leave behind a crumbling wreck. I'd hope for a scenario similar to Manchester City's with Thaksin Sinawatra selling to the Etihad group.

    They could be far, far worse, and I am someone who would like them to sell up.

    For every Sheikh Mansour there are many of the likes of Karl Oyston, Ali Al-Faraj (who didn't even exist) or Steve Dale.

    Is 'investing' in a football club a way of protecting assets - not having to pay taxes etc?

    It seems their aim is to own clubs - how those clubs do football wise is not relevant.

    And the losers in all this are the loyal fans!

    Relegation would be a price worth paying, for the long term of this Club, if I thought they would be leaving. We have no future whilst ever they are ‘in charge.’
