    That's the City way isn't it. A bit of that cleverness without being so blatantly obnoxious about it would be ideal. City are doing great obviously and their fans are loving it but they must be losing an absolute fortune year on year, what if the sheikhs get sick of it where will they be then?

    I'm sick of the FFP restrictions and especially so if we end up with really wealthy owners but a balance can be struck.

    Sounds promising! However, l'm a bit long in the tooth to get a stiffy over premature SAFC speculation :)

    Got to be the Dell-a-Bowl, surely?


    Or

    Estadio Dell-a-luz.

    Amazing.

    Are any of the new owners from Del aware.

    PS, sorry I'll get my coat.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned and although highly unlikely could these investors be buying whilst the $ is strong against the £? Move us up for minimal investment then sell us again. Big (ish) profit made and goodbye.
    Hope not.
    Not trying to be negative just trying to cover all angles.

    This is potentially the biggest thing to ever happen to SAFC and although excited to f*ckery still scared in case it goes tits up.

    Gil, thing is they could just buy pounds and speculate on currency or a FTSE small cap fund or whatever or a derivative to make money on buying a weak pound and then selling when stronger. Fair enough it makes the deal cheaper for them, and why not take advantage of that, but bloody hell it's a hard way to go about currency speculation! I'm a bit cautious too but delighted at the same time if true, time will tell if it pans out but looks a good chance to me.

    On another note, appreciate the heads up on this Smug, whether it happens or not you can only speak in good faith based on what you know or have been told, can't ask for more than that, cheers mate.

    You can rest assured my info is good mate.

    The people I've spoken to are two millionaires and someone at the heart of the club.

    I haven't sought this situation, it was thrust upon me.

    After years of suffrage things are about to change in a way we couldn't have scripted.

    Brilliant! Thanks mate,more excited now. Appreciate you haven't sought this info and go to the trouble of passing it on despite the predictable doubts and sniping etc Look forward to seeing it pan out, although I'm happy with progress as it is to be honest, onwards and upwards!

    Looking at the FFP rules and the way in which the financial press suggests the blokes allegedly involved in the takeover operate, I imagine it will be a case of properly managed and sustainable growth rather us becoming a billionaire's plaything like Chelsea or Man City
