Is this a legitimate trusted source though? I’m sure I’d seen elsewhere it was a newly registered domain name and no known journalists are linked to it? Sounds like someone in their bedroom with too much time on their hands 😳

Quoted from chipsandgravy

. Having met through previous buinesses dealings In my opinion his ego was far bigger than his capabilities of chairman. When you put him along side the likes of Carr/Furneaux who went before him he was out of his depth both as a chairman and as a person.


Sounds like we may as well; keep Fenty then, we've already got someone with a huge ego bigger than his capability and out of his depth, clearly no one would notice the difference


Personally I would much prefer that any takeover by a group had a local man (even Huxford) involved somewhere

But then if its all balderdash it doesn't matter anyway does it?

No idea if a Huxford is/may be involved but I hope not. The strongest rumour in my circles is a hedge funded guy

In the article, it does state that it is being led by an Investment banker and goes onto say that Huxford is also involved.  So the way I read it, Huxford isn't the main player.

Sounds a load of shite


Well if it is the said Director was telling porky pies to my mate which I do not believe to be the case and the interest is genuine.

Currently sat with The Wurzels in my local drinking Chedddar Valley cider. They say they wrote this story.

See you all tomorrow

Quoted from Mikey_345
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.


if this rumour is true, I kind of share your caution. I sincerely hope that any deal doesn't involve the Trust giving up its shares. I wouldn't want to see a repeat of a rich man holding a loaded gun to its head.

Quoted from Teesknees


£2.50 entrance fee? entrance fee to what your ars e?

You could have a feather stuck up your ars e. but you could be wearing trousers, so you'd still be sticking to your promise and keeping your meat and two veg out of site!


To be fair though. That would be preferable to the full contents of the grocery store being on display.

Quoted from Tommy


That's what I thought whilst reading that. A lot of detail for a rumour like that. Whether that makes it more or less believable, I don't know.


People who lie tend to add in a lot of additional detail when spinning a yarn. Not saying this article is a lie. Just saying, don't assume that because there's a lot of detail that it's true.
