Quoted from golfer
I said i would run round B.P. with a white feather stuck up my Arsen if Ashley Took over-the offer still stands if this recent  "rumour " is true.   £2-50 entrance fee if it materialises.


Well I know my information is factually correct but that does not mean it will happen. Personally, I will only pay £2.50 if the white feather is still attached to a live chicken 😄😄😄

just out of curiosity  ....if this does happen would the trust keep their shares or would they have to sell them?

One thing I would say, if this all pans out to be true - which in itself is a big if!

We should all be mindful the grass isn’t always greener. Yes John splits opinion and I wouldn’t disagree with a lot of the criticism aimed at him in terms of decisions made etc. However we see some of the disasters that happen with some owners who come in and in some respects have no affiliation/attachment with the club prior (just look at Blackpool and chesterfield) and one thing that certainly cannot be said about John is that he doesn’t care about this club or have it’s best interests at heart.

If there is a takeover then I’m happy to see how it goes as I think a fresh approach is needed, but we shouldn’t just assume everything is going to be rosey.

I believe that you might only have to offer to buy all shares if you get 50% of the shares.  To buy Fenty out you need to take 43% of the shares.

I  would guess a buy out would mean  the trust would have to agree to sell there shares. but depending on weather they want fan s to be part of it, or they want total control

You don't think the past twenty years have been a disaster then? Our grass hasn't been green for a very long time..

As long as they love the club, better the ineptitude you know eh?
