The breaking News thread...

Post by thebish » Mon Jan 11, 2016 1:15 pm

OK - as the "debt" thread was really a place to whine about the debt, and given our alleged 48hr drama-window, then I thought it would be ACE and (indeed) GREAT to have a breaking news thread...

(I realise that forum wags will take the opportunity to break any old "news" - "I've just done a huge dump" etc.. - so if you're gonna do that - then at least make it funny - otherwise, it's really about "breaking news" that relates directly to the club's future!)

having said that - I haven't got any breaking news! It's probably far too early yet!

^^^ BREAKING NEWS : - "Bish has NO Breaking News !!"

Now, back to the studio.

(Could we get a rolling scroll along the bottom of this thread ??)

To add to that post above, Eddie has apparently 3M of personal loans to the club that he wants back and isn't writing off. Bolton News reported this the other day.

I think that's everything from the past week or two?

Well this thread looks like being a rip roaring success. A long summary of news that broke ages ago, some piss taking and not a dump report in sight (I just had one, it was textbook).

Nothing, it's just part of the criteria that he's put down (apparently). Personal speculation but it could also be one of the stumbling blocks thus far; ED insisting on it and one or more of the consortia saying "none of your bleeding business".

I mean I get that ED wants to hand over to someone who will look after the club in the long run, but given that we're facing administration I don't think this is the time to faff around with excess due diligence. We need to be sold really, and if they've been talking to Deano's group this long they can't be the complete con artists we initially thought they were.
But it does suggest they've not proven that they can afford it - I'm torn to be honest. As I said, it's feck all to do with ED now in my opinion, but that said, we could be going through all this again 12 months down the line, but without the little bits of assets that are seeing us get by day by day

Nixon says we are exploring ways of raising some cash via selling property. I assume that is either because Clough sale isn't going through or because they aren't as set on admin as quickly as Iles suggests.

It's a fecking joke this. I don't believe a word that comes out of the place. I'm not speculating about it any more, I'll go to Sheffield, sing shou and swear a bit and see how it all comes out in the wash. Hopefully better than the nice new jumper I got for Christmas that now wouldn't fit my 8 year-old self.
