hope it's true!
Would tie in with what was said at the RAWA meeting where they said as far as they knew FPP were still interested in buying the club, and that it was definitely meant to be a full takeover initially. Basically they suggested that everything Smug has said throughout was correct
Could do with knowing what paper it is and what the date is on it. Could be ancient.
I think it's the Mirror.
And it's clearly recent as it mentions the statement from the fans' groups.
I hope it's right though.
Can’t be that old talks about the fans wanting Donald out and he’s excepted, that only happened a few weeks ago
Yeah I had a bit of a reading comprehension failure there.
It’s alright, Someone on the smb is trying to say it’s months old so your not the only one
There'd be a few people gutted that I was right all along ...
.... I wouldn't be pleased to be right, just pleased for the club and all the decent supporters.
was always happening
how was wycliffe?
sorry folks didn’t see other post please merge mods
be interested to know who the 'chinese group' were, and how far they got.
........ waits for @Smug in Boots
Just for Huawei the lads
The Chinese deal fell through cos they thought they were in for a take away and not a take over..... I'll get my coat....
You wouldn't be pleased but smug
This would be great news if true. It makes Donald's position all the more bizarre though:
First of all he would do anything that was in the interests of the football club.
Then a takeover was happening within weeks.
Then it was investment and never a takeover.
Then FPP were investing in the ownership and never interested in taking over the club.
Now they're the favourites to purchase the club.
Despite all of that, I like the bloke and think he initially did a good job with us. He came in with some big ideas and genuine intentions but he hadn't quite prepared for the scale of scrutiny around a club as big as ours.
I can't help but feel that if he'd laid out his intentions at the start and then kept his distance from the fans, he wouldn't be receiving such criticism, but he tried to have open dialogue with fans and unfortunately there are 2 sides to that coin, and you can't expect it all to be positive.
Exactly if he moves on like he said he would, well done to him and thank you.
It's up to him how it ends for him now
I think I'm right in saying that Clive Hetherington has a long time connection with SAFC (his father was L.O. [Len Hetherington) who was the Chronicle reporter, on all matters SAFC, when I started supporting them in the early 60s.
Not, normally, a bullshitter!
Spot on Owld Feller I remember Ken Hetherington well and thought there might be a family connection.
