    So the ground is worth 80m and the club 60m, so he isn't getting Pride Park in the deal I guess. 🙄

    When you consider the friction his dad (and he?) had at Liverpool, do we want more of that at Pride Park?

    Won’t pretend to know anything about the running of a football club, but everything about the Liverpool experience with the Gillets and the Liverpool Echo’s recent comments about this individual in particular screams, ‘please don’t do it, Mel!’

    Can't see it.. I'm not a Morris fan but I do believe he would only sell to the right person who could take us forward. Can't see it being this guy, too much baggage. Maybe Morris has spoken to him, why would he not but does not mean a sale.

    I know someone who knows someone who is, apparently, a very close friend of Mel's. Said very close friend says it ain't happening.
