  • If the weather is like it is right now here, @mooneyman I will be somewhere under a roof. Nice to see my fellow chairboys and gals are expected to combine to celebrate a rare sighting with the mark of the Dev(il)
  • I wonder if they would combine names and then indicate in their name they had joined together. They could be Aylesbury United and Aylesbury United.
  • Obviously we don't know whether GA would like to have bought Williams or whether he would prefer to spend any money available elsewhere. We will not know the outcome of the investment vote until well after the transfer window has closed. While th…
  • New contract for Mark Alambay?
  • I'll go for a 1-1 draw
  • 18 months left on contract, in the Northampton team and probably on a higher wage than we could afford. How is this supposed to happen?
  • I think Eric the accepted term in these circumstances is TACRITE....
  • frustrating game you have created here @railwaysteve. I did a bit of research before the Donny game, discovered that before Christmas they rarely took more than 400 to away games nearer than us so went low. They brought well over 500. Maybe the Lon…
  • Young lad, it would appear living far removed from friends and family, possibly for the first time, local celebrity living life in a goldfish bowl acts like a bit of knob after a few beers on a trip home. Now gets pilloried in social media. Fa…
  • To be fair not a bad way to end if end it is to be.
  • Micra is right. I cant say Tennis is a sport I am overly interested in but the sight of an aged great former champion trying to make his battered broken body carry him to one last win by sheer force of will is surely compelling. Incidentally t…
  • Steven with a “v” not a “ph” please @ReadingMarginalista. Don’t want high blood pressure to threaten @micra recovery. With an otherwise fairly boring name, he excels with a middle name of Ferold. (Yes it is raining at the moment)
  • Obviously entirely up to you @EwanHoosaami how youchoose to vote. May i ask if you expect to vote against, what alternative way forward you have in mind?
  • @StrongestTeam , you are absolutely right that the Americans/board have to convince you that their proposal is best for the clubs future. it is surely also the job of those who seek a different path to state clearly what their alternative is and wh…
  • Let me just come back on a couple of points if I may. @arnos_grove , of course the judgement you form should be informed by all factors including the history as you see it. How could it be anything else? We all shortly understand the american's…
  • I would like to make a suggestion of a way forward here. Those of you with a vote will largely converge today at a football ground on the outskirts of a small Bucks town for (hopefully) an entertaining afternoons leisure. You, however you are cur…
  • @mooneyman . I wouldn't - see pages above. I am surprised the stadium was charged although I cant tbh decipher the nature of the rights granted under the charge. Nor do i have knowledge of trust rules. FALL is a subsidiary isn't it?
  • @NiceCarrots , I have no knowledge of whether or not existing debt owing to Howard and others will be swapped for equity under the deal. you have suggested at least twice that it may be and suggested this is a bad thing. As I understand it this …
  • @StrongestTeam , given that I took the time to answer questions you had to the best of my ability, answers which you appear to have casually dismissed, I can’t say I am overly motivated to answer your next ones.
  • @StrongestTeam, actually your second ;paragraph is relatively easy to answer > The Fall status is a serious issue, how is it ever supposed to make money It isn't. It is intended to do little more than hold the asset and some debt.…
  • I suspect that is unfair @LordMandeville . The list of options to loan money to a cash starved asset poor business is invariably short. Of course had the matter been properly communicated rather than allowed to emerge without explanation, we woul…
  • Just worth making a couple more points here. As far as I can see, the Americans have done absolutely nothing wrong here. They have offered to buy a majority share in a business With no certainty of whether that offer would ultimately be acc…
  • While I am going to try to be a good boy and persuade myself not to post on this subject any more until the details of the proposal are out, I couldn't resist commentating here. While normally I am reasonably competent at reading legal documents,…
  • In direct answer to your question @eric_plant , it would rob me of an interest and for reasons I cant explain something I care deeply about. It would also rob me of my last tangible link to the town I grew up and I suspect deep down to my father wh…
  • I agree @EwanHoosaami , without Howard free of charge, I suspect we would have had an even bigger loss than the one we did have. going forward, with or without investment, that expertise will presumably need top be replaced and paid for unless the …
  • Thanks @Uncle_T. I hadn't seen that document. I have now read it and it means as follows. The investors loan is secured against any current debts due to the football club excluding intercompany debt (I believe there are none) and future revenue …
  • I suspect in this case that the Lord has already reconsidered and concluded that the promised land is in fact on the shore not of the Euphrates but the Trent largely because the latter is prepared to pay the prodigal son significantly more milk and …
  • firstly to be clear, I have not intended any suggestion that @EwanHoosaami views are not held sincerely in what he considers the best interests of the club. I apologise if I have inadvertently suggested otherwise. @moneyman, if you genuinely are …
  • That's a decision for Jones to make I suppose. He may feel Stoke have a better chance than Luton of reaching premier league status. If its happened that quickly, sounds like decision already made. Bigger concern might be who Luton target to rep…
  • Out of interest with the greatest possible respect , could you explain why you believe we can stay in the league without investment contrary to the view of those with a more detailed understanding of the finances than us and why if I have understood…
