    However, it is the mention of incoming owners in a letter sent to staff that is the talk of those close to the situation and inside Sports Direct

    It appears to be positive, but, I can't say I'm overly impressed with how the guys at the shops are being shafted.

    This. Just seems unnecessary imho. Surely when the shop reopens they will need staff? Also seems like a bit of a far reach imho to be takeover related. Surely it’s a bit jumping the gun?

    Also I thought this takeover was supposed to create jobs and save the local area. Not the complete opposite?

    This has the hallmarks of MA all over it for me.

    Seems like furlough stopped, so he's just got rid.

    He doesn't want the staff if it doesn't happen or in between

    I can tell who actually read the article.

    It is not going to Castore.
    It's going back to the club itself.

    Takeover prep.
    Must mean they are extremely confident
