Been given a fair degree of stick and to be fair some of it has been deserved given that information was scarce and pinnacle looked so promising yet fell at the final hurdle - the actual parting of cash. Now we have a new owner who is totally NEW and from the looks of things the deal included SMS the training ground and the club.

 

OK we dont know the details of Mr Liebherr's strategy, but whatever it involves I think we can at least go forward united by a positive future, rather than divided by the past...

 

Herzlich Wilcommen Herr Liebherr!

Given the current economic climate & the difficult way in this deal appeared to be structured with selling of different assets, I'd say he's done a bloody brilliant job no matter how long it took.
Yep its hard to sell a bargain to a billionaire. How close Fry got to losing the bidder only the Swiss will know, but there was talk of them being very upset whne he chose Pinnacle.

Guess you missed the bit where he explained why he did that, normally you bang on about the staff so would of thought he did the right thing in your book? He said he took the Pinnacle money so he could pay the staff their wages. The other bidders were not fourthcoming with the funds needed, at the end of the day how long can you wait for someone? That is what Fry did by the looks of it.

 

In our current climate selling a club with the debts it had while starting in league one with a -10 start was never going to be easy, but i think it could of been easier. There were always interested parties and will always be interested parties but what i question is the period before the exclusivity agreement.

It is clear the Swiss deal could/should have gone through a lot sooner but it no longer matters. We got a billionaire as an owner now. You must be happy now?
