Probably what C&A are hoping for, an auction taking place in a court house.

Sorry pal, this isn't America!

 

In America, the league stepped in, regulated the sale, found a reasonable bidder with proper long-term plans and finances, and cut Hicks out of the equation (Texas Rangers).

 

Thankfully we're in Britain where the league has no such bothersome aims.

As far as I can make out, the shadowy consortium is made up of several Chinese, a German, two Thai, one Spaniard and an Irishman.

We already know your endless appetite for sneering at foreigners. Your racism or xenophobia - whatever it might be - makes me wonder about the "purity" of your bloodline. You are so fascinated with the subject.

 

I think we should be allowed to see the Lim bid. Broughton and Purslow have made a number of very bad decisions - the pressure on Rafa the hiring of Hodgson, the selling and loaning of good players and the purchase of second rate players. Purslow failed in his main job to bring equity participation. Broughton failed to find a buyer committed to building a new stadium and he failed to find a buyer by the end of August at a time when competition between buyers may have been expected.

 

They tell us that Henry and co own a Nascar team - so does Gillet. They own a baseball team - so did Hicks and an American football team and Gillet was also praised for his efforts to stabilise and develop the Montreal Canadians. So what's the difference?

 

Broughton and Purslow found a buyer only after the RBS called the shots and created the urgency of a deadline that brought the price down.

 

Let us hear Lim's bid and exam his credentials and see his commitments.

 

Subject to the above I would prefer to see LFC marketed in Singapore and the east rather than in the USA.

 

In any case, a Chelsea part-time Chairman and an account/banker should not be making these decisions without consultation with the supporters.

Purslow promising consultation after all the decision have been made is just more self-serving PR.

    • Jürgen Klopp has spoken of his true joy in getting his squad back together for full-scale training ahead of the resumption of the Premier League season on the 17th of June.

      The Reds stand on the cusp of a deserved title victory, needing just two more wins from their remaining fixtures to clinch number 19.

      Rather than making up for lost time, Klopp told the Official site that he is taking a methodical approach.

      “We could work on all the things we wanted to work on. 

      “The first week was already really good with the small groups, I enjoyed that as well, because it was just important to get on track again, to get used to the pitch and ball and boots and all that stuff. 

      “And now we work on tactical things, that works really well.

      “We don't have to be match-fit now.

      “We try it with increasing intensity, day by day, but we have to be fit on the 19th or 20th, whichever day they will give us against Everton, I think. 

      “That’s the moment when we want to be at 100 per cent."

      Once the season resumes in earnest, it will be the best part of three months since a competitive match was played.

      In that time, players have been able to give their body and mind a rest, but with everything set to be condensed, the manager feels one season will roll into the next.  

      “It is a roundabout three weeks until the resumption.

      “That is good. We want to use that and we will. It’s our pre-season; how I said, we don’t expect a long break in between the seasons, so this is a very important period for us.

      “We never had nine weeks without football training in our lives – since we played football, pretty much. That’s all different but interesting as well.

      “We enjoy the situation, that’s really all good. 

      “And it makes all the difference for us, to be honest, to come together and have this hour or two here together.

      “You get this contact, feedback as well on the pitch directly, not via a computer or a screen. It's a massive, massive lift."

      The next step in the process is the actual dates of when the remaining fixtures will be played.

      Klopp says that is something the whole squad is looking forward to hearing about.   "Now of course, it’s more and more interesting when we play where, the times are really important because we will see how we can organise the travel stuff.    "So, the situation keeps us busy, that’s absolutely OK.   "But on the pitch everything is fine, that’s really great.   "Around, we organise it as good as possible and use the situation.”

    • Must have got some stick, it's been deleted now! But they're the senior club, dont you know?
    • Haha,woodison struggling to make the necessary requirements to stage games when the league resumes!   A number of Premier League clubs face a race against time to ensure their stadiums comply with new biosecure regulations being considered by top-flight officials. Ahead of football's planned return on June 17, clubs will be presented with a framework for their grounds in an attempt to minimise the spread of Covid-19 among those inside. Insiders say the proposals — yet to be presented — may cause substantial logistical issues for those with older or more compact homes.  Grounds such as Goodison Park, Turf Moor, Vicarage Road and Selhurst Park could struggle to comply with the regulations and may need extensive work to ensure they meet the criteria. The need for social distancing and ensuring areas are sterile will be at the forefront of the guidelines. And at certain grounds, teams may be asked to enter the field of play separately to minimise risk.  And while there is a confidence that those affected will be able to make the necessary amendments, the issue presents another barrier to overcome before matches can be held at their original venues. The Premier League declined to comment. But it is understood that following on from the early apparent success of new measures surrounding training grounds, similar protocols will be introduced in stadiums.  On Saturday, the top flight reported their latest test figures with zero positives. And they are understandably keen to try to minimise risk at stadiums. 'It's a set of measures that will form a biosecurity criteria,' a source explained. 'It is still being worked on but a lot of it will be similar to what has happened at the training grounds. 'That said, some of those with older and tighter stadiums may have their work cut out. 'The last thing the Premier League want is for football to return and for the grounds not to be as secure as the training grounds — and that is what this is all about. 'It may end up costing clubs quite a bit of money to ensure they comply, but it will happen.' A key area surrounds the layout of dressing rooms, and clubs with older stadiums will face a complex challenge. Players are being told to shower when returning home from training. A solution to how this will work after games will have to be found.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-8374677/Race-against-time-Premier-League-clubs-grounds-ready-return-action.html  
    • Wouldn't be sure on that.  I don't want it to happen because I don't want the joy it will bring to the knuckle dragging clowns that travel with the team. The irony of them cheering on a team of black players while chanting the normal vile shite they do will be ironic at best. But this young team they have now is very good. Always need a bit of luck but the attacking talent is there and with the right approach could easily win something. I think the Euros going back a year will help them as both Rashford and Kane would have been not 100% this summer
    • Waddle always been a fucking hypocritical twat. Harps on about Brexit often enough. Pretty rich from a man that was happy to use his rights to travel and work to earn more playing for the match fixers in Marseille but like many of them fuckers he's made his money out of it
