    I’d go back and quote all the posts talking about Fuhrman and the shock everyone had for 24 hours after Wheatsheaf posted that “it’s not not Fuhrman” (sic) but its really not important to the point I was making and I know you don’t really care about my point anyway so I’d be wasting both of our times :D

    It would seem out of character for him to make something up that’s positive wouldn’t it? Normally he only seems to be positive when he actually only has news? Is that fair?!? I’m only going off what I’ve heard he’s said at various times thru here

    All they can go on is what financial information we have. They can’t retain a bail out loan on the basis of a possible takeover.

    The takeover is the “most complex”, that Rodwell has been involved is, because like his employer, the club is on another level to those tasked with running it.

    yes I guess. But at the same time we have to prove we would go into administration without the bail out. And as things stand it’s impossible (I believe) for us to go into administration. The secured FPP loan essentially secures that - as they would be able to immediately claim the club if the loan isn’t repaid!?

    I still think would have been more fun if he’d said that it was “most complex” because his boss used the clubs money to buy it, then borrowed money he “didn’t need” to run it, and now wants to sell it for more than it’s worth.

    But I guess “big club innit” is a more PR friendly excuse

    Fair question.

    I'd say that the club grubbing around for a handout at the same time as being involved in a proposed takeover is a flashing amber warning light. Donal will obviously need it, and will not be interested at all if it hampers us in the future. It will be money he doesn't have to find.

    If the new proposed owner wants or needs it that is not a good sign either, but I doubt that very much, which might imply that Donald is seeking it of his own volition.

    Why do they all need to be in the UK for it to be announced?
