    Be interesting to see how the finances go after we have spent the EFL money. We'll be hand to mouth until the next lot, assuming we are still in the Championship next season

    All parties currently are untrustworthy, and again takes us back to a position of where does the light at the end of the tunnel come from ?

    Ha ha! £1.20 a collector's piece

    hehehe, along with my Vacheron Constantin watch as well

    Ha ha! £1.20 a collector's piece

    Talking about collectors items, I was given a BWFC car bonnet ornament (like the old AA and RAC ones from the 1950's), and have never seen another. It has the original BWFC town crest on it. Often wondered if it was sought after

    To be fair, all the lads involved have kept a dignified silence (unless I missed something)

    I did some work for one of the big banks who forgot to change legal entity addresses when they moved offices, and were fined. But take your point, there is no consistency and doesn't really matter, just wanted to make the point you can be fined for wrong information at CH, but they never check, and unless a customer complains regarding that, they certainly wouldn't know.

    You actually have to inform Companies House of any change of address, you can be fined heavily for not keeping that information up to date and accurate. He may of course have a residence in Switzerland, and that is the address he is quoting, but he may not technically live there on a regular basis

    Ken won't "just do one", he has too much riding financially on this. He may sell to someone who could be worse then him (but I would hope the FA do a proper job on the fit and proper test this time).

    Not really, the only other Acts regarding football stadiums are around safety and security, the ACV is a cloak and dagger ACt, where you think it protects an community asset, but like anything else, if something went to legal action, it probably would not stand a test case in law, which is why I was surprised Ken made a thing out of it when the ST went ahead, he still owns the asset and can sell to whomever he wants. A bit like Craven Cottage, when they were redeveloping the ground and Mohamed Al-Fayed owned the ground, he could do whatever he wanted, apart from the grade 2 listed building that was part of the ground, now that has far more standing and power as you would imagine

    Yes and No (which is not the answer you were looking for unfortunately), the asset regarding football stadiums is slightly more complicated than other entities. The 2011 Localism Act makes it easier for local communities to bid for and take over the assets, but it still doesn't stop the owner from doing other things, he couldn't though decide to build a supermarket at one end on a whim, not that any club in their right mind would ever do that

    Doesn't affect value, the value remains whatever someone is willing to pay for it, the ACV just restricts the actions a current owner can do with or to it, and only for 5 years, so the ACV just is a small barrier, and wouldn't affect the club being sold, even though Ken has intimated that it has or would

    The owner of an asset of community value must inform the local authority if they wish to sell the asset. If a group wants to buy the asset, they can trigger a moratorium for six months, to give them a chance to raise the money to purchase the asset. The owner does not have to sell to a community group. The asset of community value listing only improves the chances of community groups being able to purchase by providing more time to raise funds. It does not require the owner to sell at a discount. The listing of a property as an 'Asset of Community Value' lasts for five years after which it is automatically delisted and the restrictions imposed by the covenant are removed. Communities can however apply for the listing to be renewed. Care should be taken to ensure the listing is continuous- apply for renewal not less than 8 weeks before the original listing ends.

    If you want to protest either don't go at all or don't go in for the first 10/15 minutes. Throwing stuff is infantile and likely to get you banned, protests inside the ground affect the players, and when it is all said and done, we want the team to win.

    He'd have to pay back the money he owes to the PFA first

    Think it is worth sleeping on it at the moment. My guess is the winding up petition on the hotel is the priority (god knows what that is all about). The EFL are well within their rights to withhold the money we were/are due in January, which may have complicated matters. He can't keep his gob shut for long, so suspect something from him tomorrow (more in hope then anything else).
