    So what's going to happen?

    Time for more wild speculation based on very little info. Which of the following do you think is the most likely?

    1) Notts are taken over prior to the July court hearing. The new owners have a plan to take us forward, and the funds to back it up.

    2) Notts are taken over prior to the July court hearing. The new owners are a dodgy bunch with no real interest in the football side of things.

    3) Notts go into admin in July, are bought for virtually nothing, and start the season on -10 points. The new owners, however, have a plan to take us forward, and the funds to back it up.

    4) Notts go into admin in July, are bought for virtually nothing, and start the season on -10 points. The new owners are a dodgy bunch with no real interest in the football side of things.

    5) Notts are liquidated

    Maybe a month or so ago I was holding out for scenario 1, but any optimism I had has now been dashed on the rocks of reality (in true Notts style), so I'm going for 4, with an outside chance of 5.

    I wish i didn't feel like this but can't see any hope due to Hardy's constant lies and arrogance. So it's 5 for me

    Option 4. I am not a gambling man but if I was I would bet my house on it.

    There should be a 6th option..... There is no takeover, admin or liquidation, instead Hardy has a new board with directors willing to pump in enough money to keep it going. Hardy remains chairman.

    I choose this option, just for MIGS's reaction 😂

    Going by the post Swindon match interview, it was what Hardy wanted to happen had we managed to stay up, short of somebody else offering him silly money. How much of a difference has relegation made? It's got to be a real possibility still.

    No idea whatís going to happen, but my initially high optimism levels are on the wane.

    Itís a terrible thing to say, but the football club I love feels like an old dog which has taken too many kicks from its owner and the kindest thing to do would be a final trip to the vets. Or the High Court.

    But who knows, might turn out alright.

    Option 1 would obviously be the scenario we would all like.

    At the moment, having no idea what is going on, option 5 looks the most likely.

    Option 6 would keep us out of admin but how would the fans react? Are there 5 "investors" out there, each with a couple of million spare? If so, please apply to AH, c/o NCFC.

    I feel my old dog has been kidnapped and taken away. I am grieving for him and miss him tremendously but I know he has gone, I am out of his memory and he will never be my old mate again.

    Are you sure? Someone posted a section of National League rules which said administration was a 10 point penalty.
