Is there any way you could elaborate further on this without compromising yourself?  Sounds exciting.......


that's really as much as i know. i hear that Shutes is out of the picture and Holloway may be connected to the second group of potential investors but nobody seems to know who they are. i just wonder whether it's someone who's been one of his chairmen or directors in the past

Funnily enough - was discussing this with fellow Town fans on New Year’s Eve afternoon when he signed. All said/thought there’d be more too it than coming here for 18 months and buying shares. The hope was he knew of/was involved with others to takeover.

Know he’s been out of work etc - but it’s a massive undertaking to move house, quit media circuit, drop down to League 2 and put money in - personally I don’t feel he’d do that unless something was happening behind scenes. First time I’ve ever thought there was potential in a takeover occurring - it’s probably wishful thinking/pipe dream etc - but it’s the hope that keeps you going.

It's all really exciting but the only thing that seems odd to me is that it's only an 18 month contract. I know we're used to a 6 month rolling job but 18 months is very short isn't it and just seems to jar with the purchase of shares, long term vision etc

Blimey. Every time  I login he's either been on Talk sport, Sky Sports, in the Club Shop, addressing the supporters, on the pitch, in the bars, and now I understand he's holding a "meeting the families" day today.
Never known a guy to change the dynamics of a club like this before. And he has single handedly made me buy a ticket for Mansfield. UTM


It's ok, once he has finished his induction week he will be better briefed on how we operate and will behave accordingly and not repeat a couple of mistakes he has made already;

1. PR is not done through the media but is done purely on the pitch.
2. Operation Promotion was not a fantastic effort by the fans at all....it was in fact the worst thing that could have happened to club
3. Fans should not be encouraged to come in greater numbers as they are hooligans and highly disliked by every other club in the land

Wow. This is an incredible turn of events.

Could be the game changer we have waited so long for.

I was getting to the stage where the continual gloom around the club was just killing me. I am an optimist, but even my hope had been all but extinguished. I had almost given up.

But now, in the space of a couple of days, I feel enthused and invigorated. I can believe in a positive future once more.

Gonna be one hell of a ride!

Really? Thought he was the only one to have made good
Where did they make their ££££? Didn’t realise shoplifting could be so lucrative! (Allegedly)

I think you've summed up the thoughts of a very high percentage of our fanbase there Ron.

Nice one!

I wonder what Ollie would think if he read that? He’d probably do his research and be gobsmacked at the goings on at our club in recent times.

The last few days shows that many fans’ apathy has only been dormant.  Interest Now awakened!
