Born and bred in Hampton Hill 👍 Burtons Road  

Now moved to Yateley. Nice place Strawberry Hill, not many Derby fans around our area.

I used to live in HH on windmill road many years ago. 
where’s Yateley, not heard of it tbh

i know another Rans fan in Kew, but not many others near me

You could not be more wrong.

Mike Ashley is not a Newcastle fan. He bought Newcastle for an opportunity to promote his businesses, mainly Sports Direct.

If Mel called Pride Park the Candy Crush Arena and put advertising boards up everywhere with Candy Crush on I’d say you may have half a chance of comparing the two. 

I agree with you on the above, however Mel had sold his shares of King Entertainment by the time he took over 100%, so he had nothing commercially to sell to my knowledge.
 

I’m at a Mike Ashley fan, but most owners would do the same as him if they had something to sell.

Went to school on Windmill Road. Yateley is down the M3 Junction 4A.

Still go to Bushy Park quite a bit. Nice area. 
Small world.

My first place down here was a flat in The Wilderness around the corner from Lindsay Road. Not far from Burtons Road.

a few years she I did go to meet up in a pub at Waterloo of the SW London Rams. Not sure if that was a group on this forum or some other

 We go to Bushy park a lot. Chances are we’ve seen each other

Or maybe he's made a great deal and secured a great future for the club,you're just guessing like the rest of us.

You’d think getting it finalised and getting us a better squad would come under the securing a great future tag. I’ll happily put my hands up and apologise if I’m wrong but the fact that this deal hasn’t been concluded yet is incredibly poor.

I've seen people on here go off in a huff over petty comments, yet fans expect Mel to stick around and keep putting millions into the club after being slated and abused by loads of "fans".

Well then he should expect more of the same I would imagine. He's been a football fan and involved in the commercial side of the club for some time. If he didn't expect to face negative reactions from fans then perhaps he should have stayed a fan only.

What abuse are you alluding to? I didn't think the forum mods allowed abuse so can't have been on here.

I know BZI have come in for a lot of criticism and it may well be rightly placed, however the none completion at Christmas was due to the main investor pulling out last minute, is that really BZI's fault? Who knows why they pulled out, maybe due to our league position, personal reasons or just didnt fancy spending all that money on us, none of us know for sure. But i'm not sure how much blame can be put on BZI or Mel for that happening?

If they are having daily conversations you would hope BZI are close to other investors, if so I would imagine Mel would need to get their backgrounds checked to make sure all is well, not sure if they would need to be checked by the EFL again? Once thats all sorted it could be a case of new contracts being drawn up & signed then transfer of money again.

There has to be a reason for the club to be confident it will go through and not to have pulled out of the deal by now.

Can never understand these comments. If he was going to stop contributing to the club based upon criticism (abuse is different but that applies to anyone, just not football club owners) on the way he runs it, then he shouldn't have taken it over in the first place.

There's a load of difference between criticism and abuse. I've seen criticism on here but the mods wouldn't tolerate someone being abused quite rightly unless the OP means on Twitter or some other social media platform. If it's abuse then absolutely it's a disgrace no two ways about it.
