Looking, can't find nothing, this really would be another step into the unknown, I'll like Bowers simply because he would've got rid of Becchetti if he gets the club but can't help but be sceptical, not that we would've in any way known if Travis, Teague & Co would've been the puppy's parts or not if it was to go that way.

If it's ex footballer Alan Bowers he done time back in 97 for selling stolen cars.

Is this what Jim White was referring to on TalkSport?

The fella that tweeted appears to be friends with Riza and Danny Webb, so might be something in this.

Property developer. I can see Matchroom putting up the rent. The new owners not agreeing and us moving out to Essex. As I've said all along one day E10 5NF will be the postcode for a block of flats and more.

I've just realised who that is, it's David Bridges, former Cambridge United teammate of both Danny Webb and Omer Riza.

Have to guess his info is coming from the loose lipped Riza.

Seeing as they were tweeting each other just a couple of tweets before, it's pretty clear.

Are you basing this on a similarly named company being listed as for property development? Because that didn't even have his name on it.

If I understand what you're saying - you think Bowers is buying us in full knowledge that we will have to relocate, that he will build us a brand spanking new stadium, thus essentially launching a new club with a new catchment area, in the hope that the club has serious growth potential which then, like one of his luxury developments, can be sold to someone who desires a "luxury football club" for their...who knows what.

If I've got that right then that sounds even more ludicrously optimistic than Bechetti's plan, whatever it originally was.

Any evidence he's a property developer? Only info I've found says he lives in Spain.
