The Liverpool part in the article reads like it happened BEFORE they were interested in us not that it's danger of falling apart now because of Liverpool.

It's basically irrelevant now.

I'm still not sure what there is to get all excited about in this article, who cares if they bid and failed for Liverpool, if it is true how serious are they really about us, sounds like a clear ploy to force Liverpool's hand, if anything the story has made me more nervous that this ones got no legs in it.

Or that they want a Premier League club and have certain values set on each one.  So they've bid for one at a certain price and now they're bidding for another at a different price, not everything is a game/ploy.

BTW I didn't hear about this lot signing any NDAs to look at Liverpool's books. Did I miss that or are they supposed to have offered £1.5bn for Liverpool without doing any due diligence?....

According to Ryder, their initial valuation and bid is going to be around 300m. A good starting point.

Perhaps, if Mike wants 380m they might meet somewhere in the middle. Let's get this done.  :)
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

Ryders claiming that those claims have been checked & are true, initial bid of £300mil & so on.

Hmm, so rumours of developments this morning may have been accurate? If they’re talking numbers then due diligence is over, isn’t it?

They'd have either had to be doing it for a while longer than the press reported, or Mike must have the books in good shape (Yeah, as if)  :lol:

SSN this morning at a bout 7:30 ran a quick headline that Liverpool were involved in a 1.5 billion take over, more on that after the break.  I waited and they briefly mentioned that apparently they were offered 1.5 bil, showed some footage of Stavely at SJP and then said it was quickly denied by Liverpool themselves.  :lol: :lol:

Anything over £300m and Ashley will have done very well for himself.

Desperate for us to not get taken over :lol:

Honestly man, how satisfying will it be IF we get took over, IF we show ambition, IF we still have Rafa, IF he gets a lot of backing....These c***s will be falling over themselves, praising us etc.

I would love us to be able to give a massive 'f*** you' to about 90% of the media.

If a takeover did make us successful I wonder how the media will react. Will all of a sudden our fans be glory hunters? Will our success unlike Chelsea’s and Man City’s be bought? Or will they be kind by being honest and say, ‘You know what, they have always had a loyal following and they are doing no different than Man City and Chelsea are doing’.

Probably a bit of everything and some old lines trotted out like "they love getting beat 4-3".  :lol:

I think we'll get a lot of stick tbh, if it comes off.

The whole thing doesn't bear thinking about man. Couldn't care less about Man city levels of money but to have an ownership that behaves in a similar vein to Rafa, treats everyone properly, invests in coaching and the academy and generally just operates in the best interests of the club would be an absolute dream.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

I don't think we are contenders immediately even if the take over is completed. Amanda could be a better owner than the fat c*** but to expect she did an Abramovich to us is unrealistic.  However a huge step forward is reasonably expected.

i'd would honestly be happy with the club being ran as a football club again, all the lies and Ashley's expectation crushing plan to reduce the club to a bottom of the prem league outfit gone. Him winding everyone up, messing club legends about, messing the fans about...the list is endless.
