It's certainly a strange one. If you look on the transfer rumours page on SkySports (magically they now have one for us after it's usually only for the "top 6"), the same papers that are trying to ruin the takeover are suggesting we have bids in place for Edison Cavani, Kalidou CushtyBari and Wifried Zaha!
I aluded to this earlier but I wonder how long this story can be stretched out when we've had no quotes from anyone involved in the alleged deal and only have a few documents posted to companies house to go off. Not to mention a lot of clickbait from the usual 'look at me' lot on social media or the regular journo's that know as much as Jimmy doon the allotment.
March 29th saw fresh stories hit the domain and here we are some two months later with an announcement expected at any minute still. This is just like whack-a-mole.
Great point OM and in answer,not as far as I know.
I can however confirm that Rafa might possibly if he's asked come back definitely.
If he does mind i'll be completely in the opposite camp to a large section of our support in stating that I will definitely not be turning up at SJP during his hypothetical reign although I will/would still be willing the lads on............. regardless.
Came across the 11 page info.
22 May 2007 being the last business day prior to the announcement of the acquisition.
