The collective wisdom of our few friends

It occurred to me that we have around 450 pages of entertainment on numerous threads regarding the demise of our neighbours.

 

Many have commented on the entertainment value but tucked within the many pages are numerous moments of magical comments.

 

Eric started the idea with The Sayings of Corporate Ho but I felt that from a purely historical perspective we shoud have a thread without comments, without digs and without padding that simply records blue few posts that have contributed to our entertainment.

 

Sort of a takeover thread light.

 

So this is not a thread for criticism or digs, some of the guys have been very open an honest and added great value, for this, simply posting the quote says it all. Many of us will remember something or will stumble on a gem around page 127 of the big thread by accident.

 

Stick em here and let's enjoy

As a Pompey fan, I would take our position, the Prem is much harder to get to than it is to stay there. Yes it's a bit* of a mess at Fratton Park right now, but as you all know these things (can) change. SAF may well not have the funds himself, nobody really knows but him, but it seems pretty clear that he doesn't plan on going it alone.

 

Ps. Officially, PFC does have an academy, which isn't looking bad at all, so at least there is something to look forward to :lol:

I can confirm that something may have happened but we are unsure what, who, why or how. If our ownership is split between Storrie and AL Fahim it will be a disaster. If that is the case get some throat medicine in You'll be laughing at our expense for the next couple of years. We seem to have swapped structures. Give me a single owner any day.

Heims also joins board.

 

Other consortium members Lee Shau Kee, Zhang Zhixiang, Martin Veisman, Staphan Quandit, Axel Oberwelland, Wolfgang Herz

Now back to our neighbours, let's do the logic.

 

Storrie comes up with a new consortium bid on say what, Friday?

 

Let's say it would take them the weekend to get the paperwork done and submit the names to the PL for the F&PPT

 

With a rush they may finish their due dilligence on Wednesday

 

Allowing the sale documents to be drafted on Thursday, so if they are VERY lucky, they may just get their bank accounts sorted out and funds transferred on Friday, which will of course give Paul Hart & his Assistant manager (oops) the princely total of Saturday Sunday and Monday to identify their transfer targets to rebuild a squad that won't stay below Burnley all season.

 

Great scenario for a 150mil gamble. We all know that football club takeovers happen in less than a week don't we.

 

Or would they be looking at the remnants of the squad and going hmmm.

 

Now the ONLY way anyone could sell that type of deal would be to

 

Oh yes have a dodgy geezer in a white coat helping out

 

Let's watch the clock shall we

 

Yes, lets. What you're forgetting is that Storrie doesn't have to pass a FPPT and crucially, neither does David Dein having already got a clean track record with Arsenal. If they then get A.N. Others onboard with less than 10% stakes each, they also don't have to have a FPPT.

 

There are ways and means....
