Thread: Statement Tomorrow

  1. #21
    Alan hardy has single handedly crumbled this club to the ground, so many bad decisions made and thereís so many untold stories which will eventually come out, in my opinion he is without doubt the worse thing that has ever happened to Notts County fc, I just donít know how things are going to end up but as long as he is eventually out of the picture we can start the long process to rebuild, possibly from administration !

    I used to think he was unlucky, but it really is entirely down to him. He has created all his misfortunes through his arrogance, stupidity and delusions of grandeur. And his use of social media.

    I really do hope so. As if this club hasnít been through enough already in the past 20 years post Pavis with administration, transfer embargoís, and owners such as Munto Finance you would think that lessons would have been learned.

    Lets' wait and see what the statement says before writing the epitaphs. Assuming there is statement.

    That is what the Nottm Post is saying and it looks like they might be the "main" group from the very start.

    I hope I am wrong and the SA group are real I know nothing about them but i'd take that over the other rumoured lot.

    In 3 weeks time we will have an answer as no chance will that date get extended.

    You may be right, exisiting and being about to buy are two different things. The waters have been muddied on here by so called in the know people feeding us titbits to fuel their sense of self importance.

    The council have made it clear they won’t deal with the May group after doing due diligence on them, so that kills their bid even if Hardy wanted to sell to them.

    Was it three weeks ago that the SA bidders released a statement calling on Hardy to conclude the deal ASAP? Someone’s playing silly buggers - the only question is who.

    No matter what situation the club finds itself in I’m boycotting going to matches next season if they sell it to those shysters. It will be my club only in name.

    Correct the council wont deal with May AKA fraudster but that party arent gone yet that is why they are saying he is only an advisor its all BS.

    The reason I say Smurf he lives local...previous football owner...spotted at our games...he might be telling truth of no bid but if we go into admin that changes everything.

    I hope to be wrong but I'm growing more and more weary of this supposed South African consortium. With so much uncertainty surrounding the club it would be in their best interests to curb the increasing fear amongst fans.

    The only thing I'm clinging on to is that strange Twitter post by a former MAD member who the asked Swale to keep quiet about it. Why make the Twitter post in the first place if it was meant to be private.

    There is nothing stopping me saying what I saw posted, is there? Then we can discuss openly what we think is going on....what are the repercussions Swale? I think this has gone on long enough, why protect an 'anonymous' sauce who's information has been proven incorrect.

    Are the South Africans in fact just one South African, who in turn is part of some other dodgy consortium lead by a convicted fraudster?

    Statement if any will be something along the lines of " In response to recent press articles surrounding the background of Alex May, the club can confirm that having undertaken further due dilligence it has ceased any dealings with this consortium. Our conversations with other interested parties in respect of the sale process are ongoing and we are hopeful of a swift conclusion......and so on".


    I'm not in the least bit excited but there is no way that Hardy can sell to May and I expect nothing other than confirmation that wont be happening.

    That would be my guess too. The latest Nottingham Post coverage more or less demands a statement killing the May thing once and for all.

    Why is everyone saying we are going into admin? I don't think anyone understands the levity of the situation?

    The only person who can put us into administration is Alan Hardy. That means he loses a big chunk of money, he will get some back being a creditor but at that point, he's lost his golf course, which is as far as I'm aware, his last remaining business? Another reason why he won't put us into admin is that he also has to find three months of running costs up front, he allegedly isn't even paying the wages at the moment so he isn't going to pay money to lose even more money.

    This then points to the simple fact at some point before 10th July he needs to sell us. It seems he's currently playing games, or at least someone is, if he's desperate enough, he'll sell to anyone who pays a big chunk of the debt he owes to paragon interiors, he won't care if they are fraudsters and asset strippers, he'll be wanting his money. He needs a rival bidder to the SA group otherwise they will drive the price down, and if that means selling to May and buddies (his Varani backers also make very interesting reading!) Then so be it

    The 'anonymous' sauce has been reading this board since then so will hopefully reply directly

    He has many other businesses and directorships (over 20 if memory serves), although I am not sure of the financial status of most of them.

    You have no idea what Hardy is going to do he isnt exactly Mr Sensible is he plus Curtis has mentioned other groups are waiting in the wings if in admin.

    If nobody pays the price he wants then that leaves two options admin / we fold we wont have long to find out.

    Unless Hardy pays for admin, it's liquidation

    The only person who will put us into admin is the judge if we havent sold by the new hearing date and he has no confidence it is going to happen. Hardy wont put us into admin it is not in his interests to do so until all avenues are closed. Based on what little we do know the SA mob are still at least around so all avenues are not closed. I dont believe the Smurf is interested as he was too quick to quash the rumour.

    The thing thats most worrying is (if the term was correct) its a "Statement"
    We all know too well that these, especially from Notts, aren't good news.

    Even if its talks are still on going, its not good news, delaying the inevitable?
    The only thing that would be good news is if this "Statement" says the deal has been agreed with (NOT May or Smurf) and we are just awaiting finalization of paperwork and that there will be an announcement at......2pm on Friday
