Having pondered this for a while now I know the board are keen to find someone to help take the club forward with the investment that it needs to step-up a level and also feel its holding the club back but what is actually happening?
While the Walker trustees are obviously keen to sell they are doing the right thing in waiting for the right man, still at the same time the length that this search has taken is rather pro-longed. Daniel Williams came along and offered a lot of enthusiasm for the prospect of buying the club and there have been other names connected such as Johann Rupert. However, we are yet to see concrete bids.
Our club is currently well run secure financially and that`s why we have progressed. The main concern from my point of view is that the amount of cash being made available to Hughes now while the above situation remains. We will not spend, why should we if it all falls apart then all the hard work by the current board disappears and the club is then in trouble financially and success would have to be achieved.
I cannot understand why it has not gone through as the future is bright in our area and I can see gates etc going up quite quickly, Bolton are on there way down, Preston, we used to get a lot of their support back in the golden age, and I can see this changing. The club is holding the money from the new TV deal that a lot of clubs are spending.
We have a strong young squad who are determined and ambitious the fact that they have all stayed means that they can see it too and this is good, very good, and again bodes well. The value of our first team must be at least 40-50million on its own and if the club progress once more over the next campaign then this will only increase. Another sound UEFA run will also help raise the clubs profile.
So come on there must be a stupidly rich committed person out there who wants a nice little tax right off.
But I would love to know what`s going on? Talks seem to be on-going but with little reported in the way of progress. I know they don't want to raise our hopes but my god I still watched the team back in the old second div when we where always not quite there and its never going change.
So come on, someone must have some idea what`s going on.
