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

As far as apportioning the blame goes, Bassini is well down the list for me. This is all on KA.

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

Just suppose...a hypothetical James Bond Plot: A rich somebody from Nobodyknowswhereland, with a lot of pieces on his chessboard, needs to put his money to work and says, "Hey, I know a guy we can use as a frontman while we stay in the shadows. Buy a football club in his name but with our vault-ful...

Bassini has no money, unless he is the front man for dodgy Thai cash

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

club sale is imminent ----- YAWN YAWN YAWN I recall hearing similar bullship before.... Not on this one you haven't. No mention of an imminent or even eventual takeover. Closest we get is quite the opposite: "the failures of the recent takeovers". Let's hope Captain Wrong will strike again. Who's C...

Re: What are you watching tonight?

I imagine climate is a factor.

Also, probably just the Americans trying to make it easier for themselves, more style over substance, with fairways a mile wide and really shallow bunkers.

Don't see the love, just a slightly better Miranda Hart doing posh girl stuff.

I can understand the Mumsnet demographic liking it. The Wanderer? Not so much

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

Who knows? Meanwhile, the club is run by a clown, the football is the worst in my lifetime and the alternative seems to be administration, liquidation or another clown.

Heaven forbid we have a bit of hope of some decent leadership.

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

They realised Howard had been on a massive wind up. Worrying news tonight from one of the LoV lot saying that they think the Davies family have recalled the shares and started liquidation proceedings. Not sure where he’s got this from but it’s the guy who went to court to cover the hearing so....wo...

Aah - I did see a comment by, what's the other Ayn Rand character (Ayn Rand ffs), saying something about libellous comments.
Yeah, 'straw in Pacific' is about right - nice call...

The other Rand character was apparently Basran

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

Also that they had a deal with Bassini agreed but he didn't put up the required assets (property).

Bassini being a complete timewaster and bullshit merchant? Now that is something I can believe.

Regardless of whether you believe the story or not, the club is up shit creek without a paddle.

Re: Beg, steal & Boro (H) 9.4.19 KO 8pm

We were decent until they scored then they didn't know what to do. I've held back for a month, here goes. This is all subject to us existing as a club. The sooner this ownership bollocks is sorted the better. Parkinson needs to go, he's only adding to an already impossible situation. The man is bot...

Boro are in free fall and they all want Pulis gone. So obviously they'll win 3-0.

Can't read DSB's "KEN KOLUMN KLAXON" in anything other than John Oliver or Andy Zaltzman's voice.

Which apt given that usually precedes bullshit.
