Hearing on the finest grapiest grape vine that the deal is across the line. A massive amount of salt is to be taken with this information.

Re: Doom... or just Gloom?

I think the take over is more advanced than reported. The friendly game that took place yesterday was the first sign that things are beginning to happen. Those players must have been made promises regarding pay to actually turn out and play. Maybe they have been paid? I am more optimistic than at a...

Re: Doom... or just Gloom?

just like in every other element of this whole fiasco -- there's an element of brinkmanship at each significant step... I hope that this is the case again now.... and that before the season starts someone blinks first and the deal is pushed through

Re: How Many Points Will We Be Deducted?

i don't care how many points they deduct -- the only thing that counts right now is that we continue to exist even though things are looking bleak right now I am still confident (god knows why) that a deal will be cut at the last minute which lets us survive On another note .....

Well they're not getting the hotel until well into the season if at all. So now we'll see what they're made of. I'm really not in the slightest bit optimistic.
when the going gets tough the tough get going... if FV have the financial balls of steel... now's the time for them to show em

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

It's an interesting read to go back a mere three months and see all the posters on here willing him on. Really? My memory is not what it was but all I recall about Bassini from posters on here, was outright skepticism. Particularly after we heard him speak for the first time on SSN. I thought then ...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.
