IF..You were selling the club...

Recommended Posts



You would if someone else had offered it up.....see other threads, makes sense. Chansari ploughed a fair wedge in prior to buying the club. Mandric took it as part of the due diligence (best phrase I can think of).

Whats happening...it all seems kneejerk

Could be new owners who's put money in and picked their man.

 

At the moment anything is possible at Wednesday

No but he'd get £100m or even£50m..... especially if it's from the balloon man (mate of DC's?) who advertised on the fancy hoarding on match day. Apparently, part ownership is a way round FFP. Again another theory that seems fairly credible on another thread. The Chansari family have done pretty well with this tuna business thing a value of £7 billion doesn't just happen by luck and he will have someone lined up to step in.

If you said you were selling in a moment of high emotion and then regretted it you might set an unreasonably high price to avoid backing down and avoid anyone buying it.

I'll eat my hair if he got anywhere near £100m.

I am not so sure he will sell. May have been spur of the moment after a heated forum.

 

if new manager starts delivering and fans are not having the ump, would he still want to walk away?

 First of all the answer to that question is we don’t know if that’s true or not or just speculation But also if I was selling the club  i’d be really happy That means I’m really rich

I wasn't at the Fans' Forum but it seems clear that DC was adamant Jos was going to stay on Wednesday night but by tonight Jos is gone. Don't get me wrong, I didn't want Jos to stay but what sort of strategic thinking has there been at the top of the club in reaching this important decision between Wednesday and Friday? Is it the same sort of strategic planning that suddenly put the club up for sale?

For a start, nobody knows it's £2m. Secondly, he might give him a 12 month roller and I would probably estimate that the club wouldn't be sold in under 12 months. I mean, would you buy?

Yes, if DC was buying!

 

(*15% of which goes to his advisory board, as we agreed)

Probally didn't put it across very well. He could possibly  give/loan the money to the balloon man to go in with him. Probally really dodgy financially, but all sorts of weird stuff like this goes on in big business to make tax laws work for you So why not with FFP.

i don't know what to believe at SWFC any more. Only 3 weeks ago The Star headline was  Owls NOT for sale despite Red Bull rumours.

Said it the other day and Bullen said the same in the presser. DC, emotions running high pretty much said something in the heat of the moment. Sure, it's technically true as most things are for sale at the right price but he still wants to succeed here make no mistake. 

 

Bottom line is, he could still succeed here if he can bridge the gap between him and the average fan.

What DC said about selling could be taken two ways. 

Could have just meant when he’s ready (if not wanted) he will put us up for sale and expects plenty of interest..

 

in another breath earlier said wanted pass on to his son.

mek thi mind up lad

I did wonder at the time if he plucked a high figure out of the air was his way of saying I'm here to TRY and turn the club but would sell (for an unrealistic) £100m+

I don't know about selling a football club, but I would NEVER,EVER. buy a football club.

Just a money pit, espescially Wednesday, the squad needs renewing and only time can help there, the ground should be in a museum and will cost up to £100m to bring into the 21st century, a ground that has 40k seats but can only hold 33k due to safety concerns and generates very little financial return.

Who ever is stupid enough to take us on will need £200m, either as a consortium or on his own.
