I wonder whether that is the reason for the Messrs K being here last week. :conf:
The Boohoo boys? Interesting idea - you suggesting they'd buy out the debt for a slice of the future action? It's not the daftest idea I've heard.

If you look at how the shareholdings are currently moving, and based on £20m to buy the club in the first place, then they've created a shareholding gap approximately equivalent to £5.5m, with Shazza reducing her share ownership a bit and Jeff Thomas having got rid of his. Feels like they're trying to get Nick Luckock in more, and/or have created a place at the table...

Unlikely I'd say. We'll see but given public nature I'm pretty sure it will be a commercial link up (as Iles thinks too) rather than a buy out or investment. Maybe we're launching a fashion range with them or they're supplying the club shop or maybe they're going to run (rather than buy) the hotel.

Worth noting Iles says Nick Mason has started coming to a few games....and he speculated that is likely because he's got money in but didn't want that publicised!

He certainly has had a shareholding since inception. His shareholding didn't change at the last confirmation statement @ 250,000

My bad! He has some sort of collateral in, but not a shareholding as yet.

Crawley, walk, run.......or lessons learned over the last two years. Just a last thought to end this match thread.
