    Isn't it about time we got an OCG buying our club? Forget changing the amortisation rules and taking court action against former employees, let's start referee intimidation and blackmail oppo goalkeepers. Get some of the weaker academy prospects into football administration and in 20 years, we'll have our own people running the game on the inside. Forget crying about fair play in the media, if a rival is spying on our training session, beat up one of their people.
    If we controlled the police, by now Keogh would have returned from his freak shower injury and be leading us to glory. Or not.

    Unfortunately, this is where their incredible arrogance works to their advantage. There isn't a single Leeds fan who would believe such a rumour, regardless of odds, since they're all 100% certain that Leeds is a much bigger club the Spurs and there's no reason on earth why any player or manager would ever think of leaving.

    Just kick the big 6 out of the premier league, ban them from everything, promote 6 teams from the championship. They'll soon poo themselves when they realise they've got no fixtures to play, no competitive games and most importantly, no supporters. Good riddance.

    Everyone says a closed league is a bad idea, but Speedball 2 was one of the greatest games ever. There were 2 divisions though I guess.

    I may be wrong, but I think that model is already past its sell by date, which is why Sky split their sport offerings into dedicated channels (e.g. Sky Football). With the likes of Amazon already showing an interest in sports broadcasting Sky have to be far more nimble in offering customers choice. The days of forcing subscribers to pay for everything, whether they want it or not, are over. Back in the 90s Sky had a stranglehold on subscription TV; they don't anymore (thankfully).
    Time will tell though.

    We have done this deal the opposite way round to the Sheikh. Mel has seen everything he wants and needs to sell the club before going to the EFL, I also believe Alonso has paid a deposit too.
    Not its down to the EFL checks which arent simply about just proof of funds. The EFL have someone new in Birch leading these checks so I expect they will be thoroughly carried out. When Wigan got to this stage the final EFL checks took a few weeks I believe. This doesnt mean anything dodgy is going in terms of the potential buyer just that the rights checks are being made. Wigans deal eventually went through.
    Id rather weeks of thorough checks than just needing proof of funds and authorising the sale within 48 hours.

    If a deal is held up at the bit where proof of funds are required it's usually because they don't have the money.

    On the voting thread, where you don’t seem to be able to add comments (was that deliberate @sage?) I voted no to the super league. Super league teams will just become even more super rich, will dominate domestic football even more, will complain about having to play too many games and will no doubt affect domestic football schedules. If it meant they were kicked out of domestic football then it would have been a firm yes from me.

    Surely the company just takes one pound out of your account to prove it is real and that you have funds.
    At least that is what happens to me!!!!!

    I’ve done a couple of these on a ‘show and tell’ basis but it really should be mel’s job to establish the bona fideo.  EFL should be looking at the background to the controllers and dig up the dirt.  I say that but who knows what goes on in the EFL
    it is fairly easy for the custodian of the wealth to provide a supporting statement of assets.  It will also be possible to get such a statement from the controllers accountant presuming that person is properly regulated.  Having received that Mel should be asking about the liquidity and whether it is encumbered.
    if you think about it, any person providing a wealthy man with financial services will be desperate to show he is supportive as possible.  If the disclosed new owners have funds it should take no more than 48 hours

    Nah, they have too many double meanings. The laughing one can mean "that is a really funny post" or "I'm laughing at your pathetic post".
    Or the crying one can be "I really feel your pain" or "dry your eyes mate".

    I hope it goes tits up and I hope the Premier League boot them out. It'd be good for English football in the long term. It's English football's chance for a much needed wake up call.
