    I'd be interested to see how he would frame his response to the collapse of a deal he claimed never existed in the first place.

    All they seem to want to talk about is Billy Bean, the film and who played him in it.

    He's only a very small part of the consortium. It's not like everything hinges on him.

    They were the ones who originally broke the news of the takeover happening. Wouldn't be surprised if it was true, though their reasoning of it falling through doesn't quite seem to make sense.

    That would leave us in major trouble if true.

    But predictions are sometimes not well-founded, Hudders?

    I do get what you mean. We need a buyer as it's unrealistic to expect Patrick's family to keep putting money into the club.
    However, we have an operating style that has reduced that input to a minimum in recent years. Worst comes to the worst we have to yo yo between divisions Two and Three (old money) for a while. And no, that's not me having an owt will do attitude. I want this takeover to go through and for us to have a little more financial clout.
    Whatever happens though, if it falls through, we still have a team to support every Saturday.

    They don't need to. We have about £20m in unspent transfer fees sloshing about somewhere.

    How do you know that?

    Some of the money received from transfer fees in the last 2/3 years might have been used to reduce any debt the club might have had.

    I'm not saying the money isn't there, but I don't buy into your mantra of the club are merely sticking it under the mattress.

    We will find out when the latest accounts are published. Assuming they show they true picture of course.

    I'm still wondering how we managed to lose £1m in 2015/16.

    as someone wrote above its the most non "news" article i think ive ever seen. nothing has happened, no quotes have been sourced, no news!!

    still it gives people something to talk/worry/get angry* about on a quiet day i suppose

    * delete as applicable
