Forget The Takeover?
Forget the Takeover
Fool me once - shame on you. Fool me twice - shame on me (or something like that). The point I'm trying to get at is that we have all fallen for this takeover talk before and we should be wise to learn from our mistakes.
The silence at VP tell us something - Ellis is not selling. I back these thoughts up with...
If you want to sell something you already have an idea in mind of how much you want. The fact Ellis has not accepted the Neville bid either means it is not enough (in which case no-one will probably pay much more for what is already an over priced business) or it means he does not want to sell.
The argument of he is waiting for all the bids to come in means either
A. The finance is not in place for the other guys to make a bid (and can take a very long time to sort) or
B. He is playing them off each other to get the most for himself (which will probably lead them all to walk away).
None of these points favourably toward a takeover any time soon.
And even if they do receive another bid - will any of them see it through with Ellis saying 'you will report to me'.
While we are all waiting for a takeover we are not demanding more investment from Ellis, which is great for him.
My thoughts are now to consider the takeover Saga over and lets concentrate on asking Ellis who is going to be our next manager and what funds are you going to make available to him. The target has to be to put pressure on Ellis to sign 2/3 players to ensure we stay in the league.
Feel free to ram this down my throat when Randy comes and throws Ellis out the top window.
Patience tyler, I think things could look very much different at the end of the week, I've got the champagne being chilled in readiness!
