Thread: Takeover apparently dead

  1. #21
    Jim Spence just sent this to me on twitter:

    "He made an offer to ST in Feb 2017 before the foundation was thought of. Itís his money, the foundation isnít involved. One other businessman was to come in with him. The money is sitting in an account still, only needing ST signature Iím told. But only on terms previously agreed"

    He then got angry when I asked further questions saying it's got nothing to do with anyone. Even though he made it public by tweeting it earlier.

    To a large degree, the specifics of such a deal are nobody else's business. Do you remember the days when a 99% of fans didn't even know who the chairman was and it was all about just watching the game? Money will be the death of football.

    My point is that he can't really use privacy as a deflection tactic when it was he who made the whole thing public.

    It can't be public then private at his whim.

    I think he is working to further his friend's bid. Possibly with a role in a Gibson led regime.

    I wonder if his column will discuss it this weekend.

    Ufc2 with Spence in the Derek Robertson role perhaps?

    All this take over S**te is driving everybody mad, Insert a name into the equation and the rumourmonger scale quadruples
    If people just got on with their lives and stopped studying for a Masters Degree in "SPECULATION"the world would be a better place
    Thomsons gone ,new regime in place, He's still Majority Shareholder but who honestly gives a flying F**K what he's doin
    DUSF should seem to be looking at the landscape through frosted glass windows and nae seeing the true picture
    The best thing true arabs can do is get behind the manager and the team , Buy season tickets or the pay at the gater's give the lads a chance and give them a good vocal support let them know your proud to see them pull on that famous Tangerine jersey and hope they give their all for it

    Nail on the head! Unfortunately the fate of certain sides in the last two decades means that lots of people want to be seen as the ones who didn't let their club die. In reality, the fans have next to no real influence or power when it comes to these matters, no matter how many posts they put on forums. FACT

    The future wellbeing of the club we all love is at stake so it's only natural that some fans are interested in what's developing or maybe in this case not developing. Whether others just interested in the match day experience realise it or not, it does impact on how well the team can perform because it impacts on who the manager is and which players come and go.

    Onwards and upwards from top of the league and a league cup final in 2015 to hoping to retain our rightful place in the Championship in 2018/19,sky's the FN limit mate.

    We need one United fans group. Just one.

    500 k apparently was the figure.

    That works out at 140 quid per current season ticket holder.

    Surely not beyond the ability of the fan base to put that kind of cash together?
    500k but would then have to support the losses given the complete mess the club is in.

    I donít know if that would be a fair price for a club in spl / championship.

    Iíd rather ST left the club for very little given what has gone on but obviously that is his perogative

    Social media and forums have created a culture of needing to know everything and it has bred such negativity and entitlement. I understand we need to know bits and bobs as it's happening but the focus is so far away from football these days it's just depressing. fans don't seem to enjoy anything these days , just looking for things to hate and complain about. Admittedly they're not having to look far just now

    It was quite a downfall, your fans couldnae wait tae turn on Jackie McNamara who was at the time your greatest manager since him McLean, all because of a modern day fitbaw clause in which he earned for development and getting players into big clubs. It was looking like a real modern day small club - punching above its level, that the rest could look up to and try to emulate. Similar to how McLean ran things but with s modern twist. Thompsonís mistake was to kick a bear with a sore head and you all were behind him. Karma got you back for that and no one man is to blame, learn your lesson and maybe in 20 years time you will have another chance of being bottom of the top league

    DOnt forget the millions not paid to small and medium local businesses. To date we have never been there and it looks like we will continue to fight that. Karma my arse - Karma would be a law that required you and the rest of the admin/liquid fc to pay back every penny you owe plus compo and interest. Then come back with her karma pish.

    We were & are being punished for kicking a bear with a sore head?
    Bizarre as it sounds mate you're maybe not far off the mark.
    And that tragically is the state of affairs.
    Sore head? Decapitation would be over generous.

    Any one else smell bullsh1t ?

    The Wee Arra Peepul were the architects of their own demise and still place the blame on others. Look in the mirror and swallow swallow.

    Sadly, there seems to be a hell of a lot more to that era than most would want to believe. I think Sackie was the eventual victim of someone elses meddling which has ensured that karma has nothing to do with it, no matter how much you froth at the mouth!

    As much as i hold ST as responsible for what has happened at our club, i really have to defend him with some of what you guys think happened at the time of real karma! ST allowed himself to be put up as a mouthpiece for the league and said a few things that other chairmen were saying in private, where ST should have kept some things. But they are only words!

    Now when it came to ACTIONS, a VOTE came along which MULTIPLE CLUBS were involved. Now i understand that 2 clubs abstained from this VOTE, but do you know for sure that ST used his VOTE against you?

    At the end of the day, it was nothing that ST/DUFC did over 3 DECADES that saw your new club start at the bottom!

    Tell you what though, i actually do wonder where your club could have been if the new club had been run properly and was able to sell out every other week as they climbed through the leagues. But you cant see past blaming everyone else for your downfall!
