    Was Conway at the game today?

    If so does that make this story Bollox.

    Just read Doug O'Kanes piece " How would Beane and Co fit in at Oakwell?" in Fridays Chronicle and agree that of late
    a lot of copy has been devoted to Billy Beane, because arguably he is the most famous of the trio involved in the proposed takeover.

    As evidenced by his attendance at recent games however it looks likely that Paul Conway along with Chien Lee
    probably intend to play a key part in the future of Barnsley FC.
    To my mind, because of comments he has made, they have probably confided their intentions in Hecky
    and have assured him that he has a future role at the Club under their custodianship.

    Conway appears to be a very interesting character. As well as his input at Nice with Mr Lee, he has invested in the
    production of leading films such as The Matrix, Ocean's 11 and the Martian.

    Stopping short of investing millions at Oakwell if the takeover goes ahead, they will continue the strategy employed
    under Patrick Cryne's regime but increase the finances to allow Barnsley to sign a better quality of player and hang on
    to more of their better assets, including the head coach.

    It is envisaged that they will sort out the glitches that have frustrated Hecky and the fan base in the past, for example
    lack of timely contractual talks and offers for star players and the slow recruitment process during the summer.

    As we are aware the takeover has not yet happened but if it does, the new potential owners seem to be listening
    to what's being said from all quarters which is a good starting point.

    NO DEAL IS BETTER THAN A BAD DEAL?

    I'm bored to chuff off all this speculation.

    Support the team on the field & the manager.

    His tweet is from tonight.

    The quoted article, albeit old, is relative to what restrictions he’s talking about.

    Does that mean deal will or won't happen?

    Thought the bloke was American?

    Thiam €1 million according to French Press.
    Thought McGeehan was £900k due to large sell on inflicted by Norwich.
