well all that statement has done is confirm something we already knew. i was hoping it might be something more concrete.

The bit about deferring payments is a big bit of news though.

Aye, I wonder what the reasoning is behind that.  Can't think Ashley is doing something just so that it might benefit the club.

The club's in the healthiest position it has been for years, will be interesting to see who fancies taking the club onto the next level. Something tells me the Chinese will want a piece.

If you have to pay off a Ferrari in monthly payments over 10 years then you shouldn't be driving a Ferrari. If you catch my drift

Nothing has changed really though, this is just free advertising for Ashley. I see it like a posh gumtree.

 

yeah, i'm not getting carried away just yet. we've been down this path before. i think it's been obvious for a while that he'd be up for selling up. the question it whether there is a buyer out there that will match his valuation.

The fact that they're putting it out there and putting a time frame on it suggests it's something more concrete than the usual rumours.  Whether or not his price still puts people off remains to be seen.

This statement designed to pressure some hedge fund wankers or summat.  Anyway, glimmer of hope returns that we could have a go again.  I'll take it.

How long ago was it he was trying to tell us that he wasn’t for selling until we’d won something?

Or if someone came along with another zero on their wealth? Exactly the sort of person who needs to buy the club on tick.

:lol: yeah, that line smacks a bit of desperation. Like he's tying to flog the club to a snack head

Won the Championship so maybe he classes that as winning silverware. 

Don’t know how to view this tbh, could be a plus as he’s officially saying he wants to sell, or it could be seen in a negative light as he had already made potential buyers sign a non-disclosure agreement so did they pass on the opportunity and now he’s howling it in public? Whatever, just hope he does fuck off.
