    Would KLD be allowed to travel into the U.K. to watch the match on Saturday with it being work related? No idea if that’s the plan but wouldn’t it be fantastic to see him in the stands live on Sky.

    Surely they'd be a leak now if KLD had been approved by the EFL, Roker Report were quick to do so when SD was and released an article....

    Roker Report said FPP had taken over to be fair.

    Wise Men Say said we wouldn't be taken over now.

    Donald favouring a particular 'fanzine' was when I started to have doubts.

    I'd hope KLD is more professional and doesn't make an announcement through a bunch of lads running some group.

    It needs to make a statement and address the entire support through the club.

    This may not turn out to be accurate at all, but maybe the fact that this week we have been scheduled for Sky on Satda night is a reflection of the club wanting to tie in positive publicity from the takeover with a live game.
    It would be a very obvious PR act. Sure Mr Jones would have been part of the decision also. It's a good game for Sky, with BT having the FA Cup.
    Seems a helluva coincidence that our first live Sky game in months is at the same time of an imminent takeover.

    Love that to be the case but I think Sky are going for a league one bonanza on Saturday. Think there's a few league one games on Sky that day.

    It would be an ideal time for an announcement. Would get people talking about our situation too. But then if misinformation is passed on. It's on a bigger scale. I can just see SD being sat there telling everyone how he saved the club and the fans just don't understand blah blah blah.

    Imo we just need it announced and changes started within the club. Keep our heads down and work hard to get out of this mess united as fans and club.

    Not sure about that mate hulls original game this Saturday against Wigan was already scheduled for sky so we're just replacing Wigan in the schedule, however that's not to say the club might see it as the perfect opportunity to do the announcement today / tomorrow

    As Sky have a man 'on the inside' I'm sure they'll know what's happening and will be happy just to report it on SSN.

    As you say, though, it's the perfect time for the club to take advantage.

    Even though we all know it's about to be announced the supporters need a boost at the moment and so does the entire club.

    I remember Allardyce leaving Hartlepool at half-time.

    I agree with this 100% I think the fans have been through the mill long enough, I am not bothered about any fanfare I would like to see actions not words, make a statement like a couple of decent players ASAP that will get the fans raising eyebrows.
