    The EFL check is done, I've been told ... twice.

    I've no idea if there are now other formalities between the buyer and seller like exchanging contracts or whatever. I really hope any delay isn't to do with Donald deliberately dragging it out.

    If it has passed EFL is KDL not the new owner? Can he not kick SD in the town halls and tell him to go away in jerky movements?

    Good news tho.

    Season tickets always accounted for weather your there or not plus holiday season is the only reason I can think , remember it looked empty but then again I could only see one half of the ground on tv

    Some last minute signing of contracts and things would be likely I'd imagine. I believe the EFL changed things recently so that no deal could be complete until they completed their checks (saved having a situation where a takeover happened then the owner failed). So if they've given their approval that would presumably be the green light to get the pre-agreed contracts signed and money transferred etc, so would likely be days rather than weeks. I have no idea if this has happened yet mind but was told that the EFL had given KLD the verbal nod as it were, so it was always likely to be a formality. Based on that, them having formally approved him now wouldn't be a surprise at all .

    Maybe the actual signing of the contract couldn't be done until after the EFL response.

    Wouldn't it be nice if karma strikes back and Matthew Pauls personally sues Donald and Methvan for millions, Karma is a bitch that would make my year and i think many others too <party>

    Just to add to that, knowing the two in charge it'll be "let then stew for a bit".
