Re: Administration and recovery

but still I think that’s football fan anxiousness not business sense... I don't. The pragmatist in me tells me that there's no fecking way on Earth that we're going to be good to go 18 days from now. What do you mean by good to go? My point was more that the business of the deal is priority for tho...

Re: Administration and recovery

I'm probably wide of the mark, but it is starting to appear that this FV consortium are only in this to try & make money in the future, from the hotel, land, car parks etc. It is starting to appear that they actually don't give a damn about the fans, players, staff, football side of the club. Its n...

Re: Administration and recovery

And "allegedly" one of the parties in for hotel is that fruitloop that owned Forest.... We're doing a grand job of collecting fruitloops through this process... One might wonder if someone who perhaps has a grudge against the club has circulated the details round their loony mates. Or perhaps I’m j...

Re: Administration and recovery

Yep all I’m getting is ‘deal is more complex than it appears and takes time but everyone is relaxed’. Bit too f*cking relaxed for my liking - season starts a fortnight on Saturday and we're already operating under at least a four-win handicap I’m the same. But equally this is a deal involving milli...

Re: Administration and recovery

Also remember FV have put in a 1M non refundable deposit. And administrators have recently made payments to some creditors including the training ground operators and some youth teamers. These are not actions of admins expecting to be liquidating the business in the next few weeks. Clearly there ha...

Re: Administration and recovery

FV were required to show proof of funding as part of the process. The admins have said repeatedly that they were the only party to do so satisfactorily. That money is in an account. And has been validated. Alongside the two year business plan. Whether the increased competition for the hotel is drivi...

Re: Administration and recovery

From what I gather I do not think there is any plan to start the season in admin. My suspicion is season start is a hard deadline. Complete by then or club will be liquidated.

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Sibley's hit a lot of runs as an opener... Then again Garry Ballance has hit a few too. Roy and Bairstow to open though surely? Technically will be challenged but I think Aussies will fear them more than Jennings or Ballance or any other rabbit we put in there. Mind I fear the worst for this Ashes....

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Pru’s line up looks about right. Number 3 a huge call really. I’m unconvinced with Denly but not sure who else bats 3. Stokes perhaps? I’d also open with those two. It’s worth a try. As for Wood he is different to Archer he swings it at pace and is skiddy. But his fitness is an issue for tests. As i...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

How many boundaries you scored in an innings is not arbitrary - it's down to the skill of the batting side vs the skill of the fielding side. Its like goal difference - I guess. I think so long as its clear and both sides know - and going out for the superovers the umpires confirmed to each side th...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

And as much as NZ were unlucky - they have to look at themselves. Santner ducking under the last ball of their innings has to be up there amongst the most idiotic of things to do in a one day game ever. Had he had any contact he might have smuggled another crucial run. Had he got lucky and top edged...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Dujon’s right about the flukey nature of the win. For me it’s all about celebrating an incredible game of cricket and sporting drama. It’s lovely having our name on the trophy but I do feel for New Zealand. In all previous tournaments the trophy would have been shared in the event of a tie. In othe...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Think I read that the ICC are in charge of the pitches rather than the ECB. Imagine we'd have had flat tracks all round otherwise. I imagine Jimbo will remember that one! The groundsman is actually and factually "in charge" of the pitch, regardless of who notionally is responsible for ensuring thei...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

And yeah, undoubtedly lucky. Probably the luckiest win I've ever seen. Not to say it was a travesty, just every single little thing, and a couple of pretty big things went our way. The Boult catch and Stokes deflection (all in the final 2 overs?). Madness. You obviously take it, and it isn't going ...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

I'm not a big 1 day fan but this team was incredible before Archer. At home we really should win it. I’m not either. I’ve always struggled to recall any ODIs more than a couple of weeks later. This team are making me take more notice though. Bowling is the weakness, and the only worry for the World...
