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?

The only thing I'd add is that as much as this failed sale saga will by some be positioned as a PR campaign by Ashley, I still think he legitimately wanted to sell, and buyers like BZG aren't manufactured by him. But this financing stuff illustrates there aren't a lot of owners kicking around with the hundreds of millions of pounds to burn on a football club. And although some will use that to say that illustrates that Ashley is asking too much, I think it really just highlights that with the skyrocketing operating costs and revenues of a PL club, it's continuing to get harder for people/companies to enter the market.

I've been working on an advert to put on the Tube.

Are you a billionaire?

No? Best of luck in your future endevours!

Yes? Great news and please can read on!

Do you have about £350 million available right now as pretty much disposable income?

No? Shucks. That's too bad. Maybe next time.

Yes? Then why not give Mike Ashley a call today and you can buy his football club and be the envy of all your friends and possibly neighboring countries.

A lot has alluded to how long the club has taken to carefully structure the Joelinton deal. I wonder if the club is trying to arrange more deals in installments to potentially punt those costs to a future new owner.
