Has anyone out there even considered that all this shuffling of the pack and ppl moving on could be a good thing, we’ve been chuntering along quite nicely the last couple of seasons and maybe, just maybe I don’t know(does anyone) that not only have we become pretty stale on the pitch, maybe it’s a bit stale off it and the inner workings need a re-build too, why does everything we change have to be all ‘Doom & Gloom’ ??
Maybe, just maybe could it be that Jürgen knows sh*t we don’t and he, under a new regime has carte blanche over who he wants coming in and not be burdened by a restrictive transfer policy, have the new potential owners already given certain assurances to Jürgen that he will get all the power he wants and all these rumblings at the mo are just simply the shifting of sand dunes ??
Of course no f**ker knows accept those closest to the action, and the less the media know the better, we’ve already seen the click bait frenzy that the ‘FSG are selling up’ news got, I like that we’re not hearing what the f**k is going on, and for me it should stay like this until FSG or whoever have something solid to report, until then it’s all f***in bullshit, speculative bullshit from those who think they know but actually f***in don’t, journo’s like Maddock, Cullis, etc who’s red top rags smell of sh*te before your eyes see the headlines,
We’ve had 12 years now of NESV or FSG as our more familiar named owners, and for the most part I’d argue they have pretty much been spot on in whatever they said they’d do, their only blots on the landscape being the rise in ticket prices fiasco and of course their very special own goal ‘Super League’ involvement, no one can answer the ‘Where would we be without them ‘ question, it’s just impossible to answer, same as, where would we be without Jürgen ? Can’t answer that one either,( we can, we just don’t want to) however if you so happen to have a couple of Brian cells that rub up against each other you should be able to concede that the last 7 seasons because of both we as a going concern have done some remarkable things,
I think FSG have earned enough stripes to warrant our trust in them, I think they will do due diligence on whoever they choose as their new investors/Partners/possible owners, yes they will make millions in profit, but so f***in what, they’ve also given us our club back, taken it from the brink of liquidation and built it up into a European giant again, allowing us a generation or two of memories the likes your grandad spoke of in the days when mullets were fish and flares were something you wore on yer legs,
Whoever takes over/invests, will obviously need to be slightly more open to potential transfers and the finances involved, I see FSG in a similar light to that of David Moores(RIP) in that they/he didn’t want/have the financial clout to compete with the Jones’s, albeit their resources being far greater than Moores was, but then so has everything else been over inflated in today’s world, in Mi££ions rather than 100’s of Thousands,
The saddest thing is of course it’s likely but not conclusive that we will indeed end up being bank rolled, whether that be some Arab rich oligarchy or mega rich consortium who knows, I’m fairly confident whoever that is will pass the fit and proper bollocks from the head chefs & bottle washers as well as our own internal forensic examinations,
For us fans, we just want to see us challenging on all fronts for every league or cup competition possible, with the added luxury of being as equally competitive in the transfer market, we don’t need to buy our successes, buy our history, we already wear those T shirts, been wearing them for over 50 years +, the new kids on the block are making their mark, and we just need to stay with them, unfortunately, it’s the way of the world I’m sad to say, that money rules the world and in order to continue being a successful football club we need to be where it’s at !!!
Hope Over Fear !!
