Re: Red Hats and One-eyed Snakes - the ups and downs of new ownership.

So when, exactly, are the EFL due to pronounce on Sir Baz the Rescuer's fitliness for ownershipness? Or has it, his fitliness for ownershipness, already snuck through??? He claims he submitted his form last week. Unsure if that means the full business plan or simply the owners and directors test fo...

Re: Are we still here? Are you sure!

Phil Parkinson ‘I was told that there would be a finish to this one way or another this week. It was administration or a new owner’.

Administrator was appointed and ready. Bassini came in overnight to stop that process.

The case for the persecution rests M’Lud.

Re: Red Hats and One-eyed Snakes - the ups and downs of new management.

I still don't see a Bassini takeover without some involvement from KA. I see three possibilities. 1.w) A "clean" takeover that involves paying off all creditors and covering what will be substantial ongoing losses, particularly in L1. Dependent on how quickly we get promoted back, if at all, we are...

Sky now reporting Bassini deal as complete... That's what he's telling everyone...but its subject to EFL clearance. You see that as being any sort of hindrance? No. Although I would say that the funds thing - he has to prove their existence and where they come from. We know that his past indiscreti...

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

Big question and concern regarding Bassini (above the obvious ones to do with him and his lack of money), is what would be the ongoing involvement of Paul Aldridge, or even the Andersons, if any? Iles is at pains to point out that Aldridge is employed by Ken, not BWFC. Don't know what that means mo...

Bassini has no money, unless he is the front man for dodgy Thai cash Genuinely interested: How do we know the Thai cash is dodgy? Is all Thai cash dodgy? Should someone tell Leicester? Bassini said in his Talksport interview that he had no backers. All monies to be invested is his alone. It may be ...

Christ, that it comes to this. Bassini is nobody's idea of a saviour but Anderson has now clearly reached the point where he's refusing to keep the club alive, even if he has the money.
