This feeling of nausea wasn't supposed to be part of the deal!! :angry:

It seems the trust have made their choice. Not bloody well much to choose from really.

All these posts and continued hysteria and we still don't know ANY of the FACTS of this takeover. It is bloody funny to read though :D

We do know some. Go back through the thread and you will find links to interviews with Mrs Desai. Unless she has been terribly misquoted, this takeover has gone from exciting to disappointing to deeply worrying.

I was hoping to send the thread off on a tangent of people posting irrelevant texts. Unfortunately people appear to be caught up in this takeover malarky.

lol get a life!

Exactly.

We don't even know who the prospective buyers are!

We don't know about their finances. We don't know about their business plan. We know sfa at this stage so calm down and let things take their course before we judge.

I just had an email asking if I wanted to add 2-3 inches, it's not looking good :blush:

"I have a bad feeling about this"

/Han Solo

Never felt this apprehensive about something Rovers related since the threat of Ince looming on the horizon as our Manager.
That episode in our recent history shows that our club can make mistakes of an immense scale, I just hope and pray that this isn't the one to finally kill us off...

The fact is:

There are now two very real reasons to be worried about this deal.

On a side note, would the premier league be happy to accept new owners with suspect financials, after what happened down at pompey. Can't be good for the league.

I'm predicting a press release tommorrow squashing these nasty rumours.

Let's just wait and see what the truth is. Just STOP going over the top again. I'm sure that the LET will have an interview with VH Group this week outlining their plans for the club and the future. Also hope that they have meetings with the fans aswell to explain who they are, what their plans are and understand what the club means to the fans.

Rovers board and trustees are not going to sell the club to somebody who will put the club into more debt and bank loans.

On the latest tv news interview, she said a extra 5 million pounds to spend then straight afterwards the football expert Paul O'Donnell said they were going to be a 60 million pounds transfer fund. So conflicting reports there in the same tv news report!
