    [quote user="National express super guard "][quote user="jim blair"]bye crofty!!!![/quote]you going somewhere nice jim? coz crofty will be our super sub, mark my words. and why not cheerio chadwick?[/quote]

    chadwick is twice the player of Croft....

    jas :)

    [/quote]I''m a fan of Crofty, but I have to agree that - if he''s fit - Chadwick is at least his equal. Don''t think we''ve seen the best of him yet.It''s starting to look like a very full midfield but compared to where we were a couple of months ago it''s all good. Will be very intersting to see the team Glenn picks against Coventry.

    [quote user="Nuff Said"]Arrdee, after some of the stuff I read on here I have tried to keep away for a while because I''ve found it sad. A lot of people seem to have thrown their toys out of the pram because Santa didn''t bring them what they wanted. I''m sorry that people have let you down, especially because it confirms those who have a cynical view of human nature.I''ve been away for a few days at the Latitude festival and I''m going away again soon so will miss the start of the season. Here''s hoping some sense of reality has returned on and off the pitch by the time I come back.[/quote]

    Hope you had as good a latitude as i did.....[Y] [:D]

    [/quote]To be honest, it''s not as good as it used to be [:D]

    SPat my poor deluded Delia fan.....

    Let me explain it very simply for you:

    In return for PC investing £20 million in players the club give him 51% of the shares

    If you or any other fans do not think £20 million is enough for control of the club then please explain why. 

    Delia and the existing shareholders 49% stake is worth far more with a transfer kitty of £20 million for players than 100% of a club with no ablity to challenge for the top two postions and a very divided fan base

     [/quote]

    Milan let me explain it simply for you...

    PC says to the club here''s £20 million - spend it on players and in return I want majority control of the club. The club say:

    "Thanks, but by the terms of our loans we will have to pay back £16 million, plus £4 million in directors'' loans, if overall control of the club changes. Are you going to cover this in the event that the loans are called in by the lenders?"

    The club also says

    "By stock market rules, you will have to offer to buy all shareholders shares if you acquire a majority stake. Are you prepared to cover the cost of these too?"

    Even if Delia sells out for nothing, PC must be able to cover the potential repayment of the loans and the buyout of the other shares. That is why PC''s offer as it was did not stand up.

    Sense of humour bypass all round. Nevermind. Back to whinging about a lack of transfers and the potential (Or lack of) takeover. Even if it wasnt funny, the reactions of some people are gold.

     

    [/quote]Quite right. Anyone would think some people on here are trying to extract some amusement from this board, when clearly it is intended for knee jerk abuse.*** For the avoidance of doubt, the above statement uses sarcasm. ***

  6. Clearly we are not yet all singing off the same hymn sheet. Why don''t we brainstorm some concepts and run them up the flag pole? I think it''s time we stopped talking about the football club and start talking about the football enterprise. What is our value proposition going forward?

    [quote user="yellow blood"]IP address might be a clue![/quote]

     

    means squat, unless on cable broadband or a corperate network, as ADSL and Dial up addresses change everytime the modem connects

    [/quote]They change, but each ISP is allocated a range of IP addresses, so it''s clear if you''re not logging on from the club, as your IP address isn''t one used by their ISP.

    [quote user="ricardo"]Your mummy is waiting outside the school gates for you Jordi.[/quote]

    Why do you have to bring such a stupid little comment into this?

    Everyone was just having a joke with the poor grammer and slowness of Jordi.

    Mummy has a capital M by the way.

    [/quote]Mummy doesn''t necessarily have to have a capital letter. ''Grammar'', though, most definitely must be spelt without an ''e''. Sorry folks, sitting duck...[/quote]A bit OT, but I went to Colchester Royal Grammar School - many years ago. After a long period of fund raising, there was enough funds to buy a school minibus, which was duly purchased, sent off to have the school''s name painted on the side, and back it came with "Colchester Royal Grammer School".

  9. As has been suggested before, send him out on loan to somewhere like Scunthorpe. No offence meant to Scunthorpe, but no-one will know who he is, the night life will be different and he''ll either learn what it''s like to live as an adult or blow his final chance.

  10. Thought this was interesting:
    Following yesterday''s revelations, a leading football finance analyst today warned the £20m offer would not be enough.Vinay

    Bedi, football analyst and divisional director of stockbrokers Brewin

    Dolphin, said: “Without going through all the club accounts and knowing

    the levels of debt it is difficult to make a detailed comment, but I

    would have said that for a club with ambitions to get back into the

    Premiership in the next couple of years then one might think it should

    be worth a little bit more than that.“As a starting shot for a

    club which they think they could take back to the Premiership in a year

    or two it would be a steal at £20m. But for a club where the pinnacle

    for them is playing in the Championship it would be a very fair price.”Which is it? Premier ambitions or pinnacle of the Championship?
