    Takeover - this actually might be a drill

    So if Ken shuts the club down and walks away with a dead-mans £5mil, it's Marc Iles fault? Brilliant. Whatever deal Ken and Eddie made, I'd be fairly sure it's not just as simple as Ken being able to default on the loan and turn it into £millions, while Davies (now his estate) get back the football club he sold him for £1.

    In Or Out Again

    I'd need to see a venn diagram crossing 'people who promoted Brexit' with 'people who served in WW2'. Those people have every right to be furious.

    Worked a treat so far.

    I don't think it's difficult to assess how he's performing, that evidence is there for all to see every week. That doesn't make him a bad manager, I think he's a (broadly speaking) good manager who's in a situation he can't turn around. It happens to the best of them.

    I think generally people get far too wound up about what strangers think about a football chairman. There'll have been people last week disappointed everyone was paid on time, the same way there are now people hoping the new owners put us out of business so they can say 'I told you so'. I think Ken's a twat, as I might have mentioned, but if this comes off and the new owners can take us forward, I'll give him credit for ultimately delivering.

    Ok. Slowly this time then... Spider said that if the new owners turn out to be charlatans, it'll be on the heads of those who protested and forced Ken to sell. It's on page one of this thread. I asked what his opinion would be if the opposite turns out to be true. If you think the protests have forced Ken to sell, then if the outcome is good for the club, surely it was actually a brilliant thing for people to do. FWIW, I didn't protest, and don't think it has anything to do with the timing of us being sold. If you think people who do think that are on solvents, take it up with Spider.

    You're confusing me with someone who does think Ken has been forced to sell. I don't, I agree with you. I'm just saying you can't have it both ways.

    Presumably if it turns out alright, you'll be begging forgiveness from the brave souls who's protests made it happen? The Warburton stuff is interesting. I don't think he's as bad as his stints at Rangers and Forest make out, but it'd still be an odd look for him to pull a consortium together to buy the club and stick himself in charge. If a deal has been agreed in principle that would suggest there is some solution to paying Eddie's £5m, which is promising (unless the solution is BluMarble).

    Sheff Utd away

    I was always under the (quite possibly incorrect) assumption that a one year rolling contract in football terms meant that there would always be one year left on his deal. If we sack him tomorrow we owe him 52 weeks from then, if we get rid a week on Thursday it'd be 52 weeks etc. etc. It still got to be worth it though. It's inconcievable he'll be managing us next year, so why let him struggle on?

    Sweaty Ken

    The Premier League has Brighton, Bournemouth, Burnley and Huddersfield in it. Villa, Leeds, Forest, Sheff Wed etc. are in the league below (the latter trio having not been higher in the best part of 20 years). Who sets this level and when? And where should we be happy to exist?

    Sweaty Ken

    Nonsense. Holloway got them to the Premier League and almost kept them there, then nearly did it again with players paid not far off we do currently. The Oyston's meanwhile... https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/nov/06/oystons-blackpool-ordered-pay-shareholder-high-court-valeri-belokon?

    Sweaty Ken

    So's 125k to the Athos group, his 625k (inc. promotion bonus) etc. etc. The rights and wrongs of those have been done to death, but it's a bit rich him slagging the fans for the club losing something less than 20k. He should be on his knees thanking them for still bothering to turn up.

    Transfer Gossip

    Ched Evans is basically what Madine was when we signed him (an ex-con with talent but who's never shown it outside of League One). He really wasn't a bad shout all things considered, and was sat in the hotel at 11pm. Not sure what more Parky could've done outside of funding the deal himself.

    Can only sign free agents outside the window if their contract was cancelled during it.
