Has he claimed it’s settled...?

It should have been, either by Corney or Al, depending on the buyout deal

 

If it is still showing after the 27th of this month, then we can ask Al when he attends one of our Trust meetings.

Nowt like necaru. Bury are doing it to get good players and both parties aren’t expecting the ‘loan’ to be repaid. Whereas necaru was to keep the lights on and Corney managed to skip the country before the kneecap squad came for repayment.

 

At he moment I might take Bury's owner over ours and they are doing well on the pitch I  hope the Same happens to Schoels next season,  but they were due another appearance in court yeaterday with 2 winding up orders for 22k and 5k. Assume they have settled, but Broadoak specialise in bridging and last resort loans. It's not owner funds.

Companies House is just a big filing cabinet. It's only as reliable as the people doing the filing.

Maybe so, but its been extremely useful in confirming or highlighting information that has not been previously forthcoming from the club

 

The Necarcu loan being one

I think what she getting at Dave, is we wouldn’t have known Corney had taken a dodgy loan at all had it not been for the requirements to post the legal charge in the first place.....

But if they hadn't posted it we'd never have known and as it is a bit tricky to prove a negative who knows if there is or was anything else....

£4m income, close to us

£86 in £100 on wages £3.2m

£18,000 a week loss almost £1m per season. £850k loanswritten off.

Anyone know what car Corney drives? 

I joked but as is full name is Simon Myer Corney SS MM C geddit? I did a double take on the tweet (not my original tweet)

Looks to me to be a former loan strikers car. Obvs stands for Sam Surridge missing my crib

"We hope to have everything in place before the start of next season and are working on the ways the fans can get involved financially"

 

So does that mean a bid has been accepted (at least in principle) but funds are needed from the fans? Funds for it all? Half? How much?

Dont think it’s a pre requisite...it sounds to me like if fans would like to get involved financially they would probably be able to do so.

 

Might be by the way of a shares scheme?

 

We’ll have to wait and see but IMO it’s brilliant news for supporters😁

There are 5 pages of nonsense postings about a position that nobody wants to consider on another thread. What's the point if you don't want to do it?

 

Here we have some of potentially the best news to come out in ages about the future of OAFC and it is getting half a dozen replies.

 

Fantastic news if it is true and achievable.Well done to the trust who have had a bit of a bashing lately-time to take a bow.

As you say potentially great news. I think perhaps there have been so many false dawns that people are understandably "holding back" until something concrete actually materialises. Utmost credit, though, to all concerned in these negotiations.

@underdog @Andy b

Means of funding are not 100 per cent clear to the trust at this point. We are not leading the process but being regularly briefed. There is genuine momentum and a will from both parties to make it happen. How fans can get involved will become clear in due course.

 

Sorry if that’s a bit vague. As per the TO release today, I would urge patience. We will get there I am sure

How do the trust not know if the money is there? I can email Blitz and offer £20m for it, tell the trust I've agreed a deal, ask them to come on board and then say right I've no money I needed you guys for your buckets

It isn't going to be a scenario like that. Almost everything is in place...

Just a reminder that Jason Flynn MD of JP Morgan is now part of the Trust. 

I think that is the reassurance needed.

Do we think Simon Blitz has got to the stage where he is just prepared to cut his losses and run, particularly as two of the stands are close to being condemned and the pitch was shot five years ago.
