Massive grattitude to those two for what they've done.  We have been allowed to dream again. They both seemed massively emotionally invested in the project  so its a bit of a surprise.

 

 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if she needs the cash. She had to borrow money to get the 10% in the first place, and she seems to like getting sued. 

 

Them leaving makes sense, but them selling their share of an appreciating asset doesn't. Unless they need cash.

Aye, that's my take on this, needing the cash. Wasn't she ordered to pay some Greek shipping magnate recently?

Aye, she was down to 6% per the article. 


she was apparently gifted her stake in the club by PIF for brokering the takeover - and to be the friendly western female Face of the takeover - and I guess now is the time for her to cash out

She’s very much had the overwhelming support of everyone. Maybe part of it is the next phase of what’s in store for us will be less popular with the supporters ie the installation of chaise longes in the East Stand where women in full burkas will sashay into the exclusive roped off areas baring bowls of olives and dates accompanied by pots of hot sweet Arabian coffee (nee beer like) :cuppa:

Could be they need the cash but also - Wasn't the shareholding on the basis that any investment was to be proportional to shares held. If PIF are looking to go big (Aside from anything else, stadium upgrade/training ground won't be cheap) I very much doubt she/Merhdad could stump up their portion to match.

 

PIF wouldn't allow someone to retain shares, as the asset appreciates, when that shareholder cannot support the investment that creates that growth.

 

I also wonder if this could also be a measure of fallout from the Ashworth debacle, was reported his nibs (excellency) was furious, hence itvdragged on as he wouldn't countenance a resolution not on our terms.

She brokers deals but doesn’t have anything like the sort of cash needed for serious investment is my take. I hope she’s made a tidy sum out of it all as she was a huge part of making it happen

I hadnt heard that about investment being proportional to shares held. However, you're right that the Saudis have probably said if you're leaving now, this is the extent of your contribution to the growth of the club, and you can take your share now. 

 

I'm sure they've made out canny for their efforts. As they should cos they've grafted their tits off.

Hope it’s not that PIF are pissed off not being able to spend and are selling up :( 

 

That would be seen as a loss of face by PIF and Arabs like loss of face like mackems like taking a bath.

They don’t seem the types to give up easily. They’ve already suggested they are playing the long game. Toonpack has it spot on imo. 
It’s fucking feast or famine with you :lol:

They obviously did the first transfer window in the January after they took over but did they do the following summer too?

Speaking of which, there’s already a 10 page thread on RTG with them jumping to all sorts of conclusions and making out we’ll all be devastated :lol:
