    Thats right. For obvious reasons an outgoing owner can't buy or register new players.
    Also thought that this might be linked to the season ticket situation. Other clubs in our division are selling them but we seem an outlier in terms of not selling them. Pearce gave the reason as uncertainty around Covid but that applies to every club & hence I believe thats a smokescreen. I think its actually to do with the renegotiation with new owners that would need to happen should a large influx of new cash come into the club i.e. season ticket funds
    If the takeover wasnt close & we were supposedly as skint as everyone says, why on earth would we turn down the prospect of a massive cash injection from season tickets? Makes no sense. I think takeover is happening in a matter of days...feel free to bookmark 😄

    Interesting theory.
    There’s a certain point in the takeover process (near completion) that the club enters a default embargo isn’t there?

    There's a lot here that doesn't add up;
    Percy tweeted on Weds we were set to offer contracts to Davies, Wisdom & Morrison
    Rooney is playing a number of trialists 2 weeks out from the opening game with seemingly no certainty they can play in League games
    Tom Carroll is training here whilst apparently having a contract offer on the table from QPR
    Like the tweet Alan Nixon has just put out suggests, think there's a bit of politics going on & probably some media pressure being applied by Rooney, knowing the fans will direct heat at Mel & Pearce. My wild guess is that the takeover is close (some suggestion on twitter this might be the 'other reason' for not being to sign players) but wonder if some dispute over price/debts to resolve.

    LeedsCityRam got a reaction from Premier ram in v Salford City - Pre Season Friendly   
    OK, a real mixed bag. The result obviously wasn't good but a good exercise against a team who pressed high, were competitive & keen to game manage - very similar to sides we'll be playing this season. Lets also not forget Salford are highly likely to be finishing top 3 in League Two this coming season (one of the biggest budgets in bottom 2 divisions) so not a massive difference quality wise.
    First half we were unfortunate to go in behind. Totally dominated before the goal & even with their tails up after their goal (and pressing higher), we were still able to play through them. Bird was particularly good first half - they struggled to press us effectively because he controlled the tempo & was unafraid to pass through the lines. Carroll & Morrison also had moments of breaking through Salford's midfield but as an overall unit, the intensity wasn't good enough - too many touches, too pedestrian & not enough movement from those further forward. That said, still had a few chances - Aluko should have scored, Morrison unfortunate with header, Carroll should have got his effort on target & there were other instances of decent delivery but not enough bodies in the box.
    Poor goal to concede start of the second half (first goal just a fluke - Morrison really unfortunate to concede a penalty) - poor pass from Shinnie & whilst Elliott is good in the air, to rise so easily between McDonald & Wisdom was not good enough - even if you factor in they'd only been on 6/7 mins. Thereafter, we still created chances - Baldock did well with one effort but an atrocious decision to try & pass to Morrison for the near open goal
    Positives - felt Jagielka & Stearman looked very solid & rarely troubled, Sibley looked really bright when he came on, good to see Bird playing with such confidence, Forsyth put in some great delivery from left side second half (as did Byrne first half)
    As a takeaway, I like how we're trying to play but we need to work on the intensity of our attacking play & one touch stuff - we're not going to open disciplined teams up otherwise. Some of that will be pre-season rustiness & a lot of new faces - we can improve & we will improve.
