    Masters today

    Being interviewed by committee of MPs on various subjects.
    One MP was persistent about the takeover saying it's not fair to supporters having no information for 3 months.

    Again he said it was confidential but did say he hoped it would be resolved soon.

    MPs from the area need to keep the pressure on,saying this particular takeover is complicated is not a good enough answer from the Premier League,the club is in Limbo at the moment.

    Limbo is exactly right.

    It's definitely stymied any discussion on here because the two options for the direction the club will go in once the decision has been made are so different they're basically opposite.

    We don't want to go back to talking about Bruce's shit football and buying a third-choice utility defender/midfielder/groundsman from Wigan who once had a wonderkid tag...when he was 8...unless we absolutely have to but can't get involved in discussions about buyong the latest actual wonderkid in case it all blows up in our faces.

    Do we get to shag a supermodel of our choice or is it back to blowies off wee Jimmy Krankie?

    There is nothing complicated about the criteria required to pass the "fit and proper person to be an owner of a football club" the process has been made deliberately complicated by the powers that be to suit their own ends, or the ends of those outside who seem to be able to pull strings to suit various "pockets" who seem to want to remain anonymous but at the same time have a greedy agenda concerning the outcome.

    If the matter needed so much time to reach a conclusion, the question to be asked is "why have so many dubious characters been able to buy clubs in the past"

    It would help if these sort of questions were asked in parliament by one or more of our local M.P.'s.

    If the takeover fails, Bruce will be looking to sign Cherno Samba a wonderkid on fm 2012 I think.

    No doubt their partners in Qatar have asked them to publicly speak against the takeover in parliament. Question is..,,did the MP speak up because he personally has business interests in Qatar or to keep Scotland on good terms with Qatar due to the trade between the 2 countries, especially if Scotland secedes OR has he received a big brown envelope?

    I wouldn't be surprised if there were more than one brown envelope going the rounds in this situation considering the amount of money the individual protagonists in this situation have to throw about without worrying about the costs involved.

    If Qatar are handing out brown envolopes to get people to pubically bitch about the takeover expect Big Sam to start talking about it before too long.
