I love a good statement, especially when it's from the Bydgoszcz Ignacy Jan Paderewski Airport.

Apparently the source for this coming statement is a local lad who works in Dubai sports media/Journalism , supposed to be pretty legit, claims that PL is holding up the BZG statement at the moment which if true probably means PL checks are on the verge of completion which should be good news.

Hopefully it's true, he's been backed as legitimate and reliable by other people I consider legit and honest, so fingers crossed, still not getting my hopes up like.

Remember the optimism at the start of this thread <awe>

Now we have no manager, hardly any coaches, unlikely to sign Rondon, Perez off to Leicester, Joselu still here and we’re desperately clinging to hope from unknown sources that things are still happening...

If a takeover was close then surely this Perez transfer wouldn’t be happening yet? Can’t imagine the new owners will be happy to have agreed a fee then for Ashley to flog a £30m asset while the deal is going through.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

I imagine they agreed for the sale with Ashley, and that money will go back into the club not the fat man's pocket. They'll need it to fund the big money move for Roriguez <awe>

<urgh>

I think the Perez thing is complicated if it is a release clause, I doubt there isnt much BZG or the club could have done, I'd assume the money would just stay as liquid assets so wouldn't really effect the price of purchase.

I'm at SJP today for Civil Service Live (it's as thrilling as it sounds), so a few ITK thoughts.

1. Can't see anything happening and the staff aren't telling.

2. There was a queue at the box office.

3. They haven't changed the team photos on the wall of the platinum suite in quite some time. 2011/12 kits, Santon, Obertan and Lovenkrands. Yum.

That 3rd bit makes me a lot angrier than it should, we are a club turning over millions and playing at the elite level of English football, a part of a multi billion enterprise that is broadcast globally around the world, yet we have a regime so neglectful they cannot be arsed to update a few pictures. If you can't be trusted to keep on top of that then what the f*** can you be trusted to do.

I saw one of the maintenance guys in Tesco at lunch, if I'd seen them before then I'd have got him telt.

At least when there's no staff there's nobody to give a clueless statement. Saves us the trouble of getting even more angry at their ineptness. <roll>

Press 1 for home tickets, 2 for away tickets or 3 if you want to buy the club.

I really hope that someone in the box office team leaves one day and does that on their last day.

Bet our academy doesn’t look like this. But then again we don’t have the financial clout of Norwich City...

Paper works being signed this afternoon, will be announced before 10pm. Trip to China is also being cancelled, will be confirmed once another team can be announced to take our place. New home fixtures are being looked at. Jose M is working hard on transfers as we speak
<laugh>

The sooner Ashley shoots this takeover crap down the better but i guess he's having too much fun atm.

I don't think Ashley is giving it a second thought right now. I'm sure he'd love to get his 350m and f*** off, but he's too stubborn and proud and likely makes the whole process 4x more difficult than it should be.

I think people on social media like that guy are having the most fun from it all.
