    The Spanish have submitted funding plans for the next two years and beyond ,this has been approved by the administrators,they are happy to continue with or without the supporters club being involved.The main stumbling block seems to have been the Council and the rent arrangements for the Rugby.This now seems to have been resolved and they can move forward.If you now want to go back to the drawing board with new bidders that may or may not exist and might or might not have sufficient funds,then fine but the process will take another two or three months and we will be absolutely doomed to relegation and more uncertainty.
    This is now a matter of urgency,we need to give the Spanish a chance.If the new bidders are genuine ( for me ,if they were they would have been in the process months ago )then ,maybe they will return when the Spanish are looking to sell in three or four years time.

    Totally agree with you Phoenix.
    If those so called bidders, with squillions to spare, have taken so long to throw their cap in the ring; then I smell a rat !

    I think the Spaniards have a legitimate shout if the Rugby have been ducking the rent because they have no revenue from attendances. Think Uncle Dave gave them the sort of deal that they wouldn’t get from anyone that doesn’t have a soft spot for them. Now is the time for the Rugby lodgers to step up to the mark and pay a fair share of rent.

    As for the supporters fund, I think a 5% share is a fair exchange for a one off sum. Great effort from the supporters, but running a football club is an absolute money pit that requires continued investment; not just a one off lifeline. So all in all I think it is fair if you consider what it’s going to take over the next five or ten years to bring success back to the Latics.

    Or is it simply a case of Massey being made to play at full back as opposed to his more normal position?

    I actually think he played better at fullback, than in his so called natural position.
    Also think he might have an attitude problem and he thinks that league 1 is below his level (would rather he work hard and prove his talent, rather than sulk).

    Personally I wouldn’t pick him; I’d sooner give one on the keen young bloods a chance !

    Its doing the rounds this morning that Darren Royle is preparing a consortium if the Spanish bid goes tits up!

    Don’t know if this would be good or bad thing for us after the Royles track record over the past couple of years, make your own minds up on that one.

    Does he know something that we don’t ?

    Well tonight, it was plan B: a nice Negroamaro from Puglia ! It feels better, just being out of the bottom four !

    As for Puglia, I remember Jamie Oliver being on TV about 2 years ago; almost claiming that he had single handed discovered the delights of Puglia. You know what Jamie, I nearly sent you my T shirt: been there, done that, year before you :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    Already breathing in anticipation of tonight’s win, is Carmenere !
    A grape variety that disappeared from Bordeaux in the late 19th century and has amazingly been re-discovered in Chile during the new millennium.
    Let’s hope that by 9:00pm tonight, I am writing my tasting notes and not having to resort to Vin de Table; like the last two games.

    Up the Tics :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    Sususmaniello, I was getting all excited there for a minute thought he was an Italian centre forward we were after.

    This week I have another little knowm Italian grape, Aglianico, that I will be road testing if we win at Crewe. Sounds like his team mate !

    so far I am impressed with Alex Perry; and think he has the potential to develop and play at a higher level.

    Fantastic news, I might actually sleep tonight.

    Can’t help but think this is part of LostockHallLatic’s deal to restock his wine cellar At last, some decent Rioja in the corporate lounge; for me and Horc. That last stuff absolutely plastered Horc and left him sleeping on a bench at Euxton railway station :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    I’m with you on that one Leyland !
    Nor will I be inclined to support a phoenix club !

    Pissed off with all the greed in the English leagues, so I might occasionally pop on the train in Preston and start following Rangers (really enjoyed our day out there, in July 2018).
