    I don't believe either of those things to be the case.

    I still believe they'll take over and can't see a future for Methven tbh.

    Don't mind SD & CM as advisory roles

    About the area as such but still think the staffing issues

    We're behind the delay

    So you'd let perfect strangers walk about our fair city

    Without introducing them to a few of the establishments ?

    I couldn't give a **** if they wanted to drink with fans or not. That's not important

    Personally I’d like our owners, whoever that turns out to be, to be professional and stay away from fans and pubs. You’ll be liked from a few because you’ve had a pint with them, shown yourself to be one of the boys etc, but you’ll be worshipped by every fan if you get things right on the field.

    When it’s all said and done that’s what it’s all about. I like Donald, but I just wish he’d be a bit more savvy.

    Why do people keep spouting this line? Donald himself said at a talk in back in September when the infamous "1 to 2 weeks" quote came out that it was a takeover and that he didn't know if him and Methven would stay on afterwards even though they wanted to.

    Apart from the Grigg fiasco, which was as much due to the pressure caused by previous shortsightedness, they have done OK in my eyes, without them I think we would be in an even bigger mess tbh.

    Hi I'm a new member who's been following this the last few months. Do you think the 'investment/loan' is due to a late disagreement in takeover price following due diligence? So the deal was ‘off’ because of that but then back on (or ‘never off’) by agreeing something like ‘We’ll loan you the difference in our valuations, and if you can pay it back we’ll pay your price, but if you can’t, we convert the loan to shares at our price’. Assuming SD could only pay it back if we got promoted or otherwise increased revenue, the outcome would be they get a championship team at the SD price, or a league one team at theirs. SD effectively gets to back himself to be successful, and demonstrate that his valuation was correct. The 'investment/loan' approach might also resolve or at least defer the rumoured staffing issues if they were to do with keeping SD and/or CM.

    I think some other posters might have suggested similar. This is the only way I can make any sense of this, have it fit with the various SD and CM comments, and give a reason why the Dell people would hand over any money at all at this point. I think this would fit with the talk in comments, and possibly a lot of the Nixon stuff. A big downside is that if a deal like this really existed it might have to be under NDA, so SD might not be able to share the excitement that this really is a take-over and might take a lot of flak until able to do so.

    It amazes me that some people totally believe they should have full access to the financial running of the club. I wonder what Nissan would say if we asked them for the same access.

    People using a num de plume demanding full disclosure. Its mental. The clubs finances are private mainly and should remain so. A billionaire spent loads and left us in division 3.
