Possible Takeover What are the FACTS

PostPosted by Gloucester-O » Mon Jun 19, 2017 5:51 pm

We have been hearing for months now of a possible takeover, deals being put on the table and being rejected (supposidly) and now we are lead to believe a deal has been done.

What FACTS are there to support deal has been done? I want to believe a deal has been done, BUT CAN'T for the time being.

There are several people who have claimed specific deals have been tabled, and now the deal has been done. I don't doubt these people, I am not doubting their integrity or that they are honourable people, BUT lets be honest we have heard some shite over this last few months (especially on this board) and we still don't lnow anything (although some claim too).

I hope good news is iminenet and we can all plan for next season, BUT without COLD HARD FACTS it is impossible

I want to hear FACTS to support a deal being done, not just gossip.

Nothing from James Masters, any of the local journalists or the podcast guys. Sounds like just rumours to me.

Fact is we don't know, can only believe (or not). Of course a lot on here is guess work, opinion, wind ups and so on. We all know the deal won't be guaranteed until it's announced. There is only one fact. We don't know.

How should we go about finding these facts? Going round the perimeter of Brisbane Road with a magnifying glass? sh!t samples from the toilets in the local area?

Whilst I understand that its so frustrating waiting for this but are people being intentionally thick?

At what point do you think we'll get facts? When its announced and thats it. Travis isnt going to put out a video during negotiations telling people whats happening. We didnt get any facts on the becchetti deal until it was all done.

The point is those who claim to be in the know, should before posting presnt facts to support their claim. If they can't rather than make statments preporting to be factual, just say that is what they have been told ans not take it as gospel.

I have no way of knowing if a deal has been struck ot not, but when you get a thread with over 1,300 posts and nobody is any the wiser at the end, you have to wonder whats the f***ing point.

I awaite the annoucement that we are free with baited breath.

And there it is exactly, so in the absence of facts, any calims are just rumours, title tatle, conjecture, chinese whispers etc.etc.etc.

So rather than jump on these claims as being gospel (as some have), just accept them as mere possibilities, nothing else.

I would expect the news to break the moment pen was put to paper. Loft are in contact with Travis just as the 7 are in with bowers.

The problem over the last two months has been getting to that point, the point where the pen touches the contract, need to get that done before Becchetti moves the goalposts again for at least a third time, you certainly can't put it past him, that's why I'm still sceptical.

He's moved the goalposts so much that if we become a Phoenix club he could come in handy before kick off over the Marshes helping out.
Hope he left on good terms.

How many FACTS did we know about the Hearn deal with Becchetti until the deal was done?

None.

Similar rules will apply this time, I would imagine.

Exactly.

The same people would be moaning if there was no rumours and it was radio silence. Theres some people who take the piss and make stuff up but i really appreciate people posting stuff they have heard from good sources, they don't have to, in fact its usually a pain in the arse for them when things don't happen instantly.

Yeah, we won't know many, if any, facts about any deal until it's completed and though it's annoying and we all want news soon, it's the way it is.

The only fact I know of is that Francesco Becchetti is seemingly willing to sell, as proven by whole Alan Bowers bid and the nonsense that come with that.
