  1. Do us all a favour and drop the subject at this moment in time, out of respect for the clubs owner!
  2. Was tremendous today. MOTM with Kakay not far behind!! Several excellent performances today
  3. Totally agree. A very sad way to end the year. A man that did what any true supporter would do, given the magnitude of his wealth, yet still, unbelievably, had to bear the brunt of criticism from certain posters and so called supporters. RIP Colin

    Correct! No one knows what the future will hold. It could be one of the most exciting things to have ever happened to our club or it could be the total opposite. If it’s the latter, I am sure you won’t be slow on the trigger. Time will tell but it’s happened, so everyone that professes to be a supporter of the club, should get right behind it!

    Trust Beattie, trust the board, trust the shareholders to do the right thing has been your mantra for the last 3/4 months JJ. Why has all that changed tonight? If it goes tits up is Beattie and his cohorts absolved of all blame? Are they not on record as saying they will have the best interests of the club at hand regarding the sale of the club? Time for you to accept the facts instead of going over and over and over the same points again. For what it’s worth, I think it’s a big challenge and a lot will depend on the make up of the board but given the choice of the two bids on the table I, for one, am happy with the outcome.

    Quote in paper this morning ONE of the consortium trying to buy Partick Thistle has blasted the SFA for blocking the takeover. Paul Conway says Hampden red tape will force New City Capital to look elsewhere. Of their current ownership of Barnsley, he said: “We consider Barnsley the best-run club in English football.” He forgets to mention the Tykes are second-bottom of the Championship and heading for relegation.

    Bit pointless, he doesn’t go to any games anyway!

    I certainly haven’t read that anywhere and if indeed it’s true, it’s an unbelievable offer from Colin Weir and one that no club in Scotland, out with the top 5 clubs, could, or indeed would, knock back, never mind a club that is at the bottom of the championship!!

    That’s why I added in maybe JJ is expecting Colin Weir to build and gift the training ground as well. Where the £10-12m quote comes from is anyone’s guess!!

    Well JJ seems to think it’s between 10-12m. Be good if he gave an explanation as to how he came to that figure unless he thinks Colin Weir is going to build the training ground and gift that as well

    Due to the consortiums total lack of communication to the trusts and our supporters, the only thing we can look at is how the supporters of their other clubs view/viewed them. Demonstrations by supporters at Nice to get them out happened, as they appeared unhappy at the amount of debt the consortium was racking up at the clubs expense and the excessive interest rates they were paying on the debt. Why do billionaires have to take out loans in the first place? Barnsley fans, going by their forums, appear about 80/20 against. Selling their best assets and replacing them with young untried talent, in the hope that they can unearth a gem and flog them at a nice profit ASAP. Whereas there are a lot of questions TFE have to answer they look the safest bet out of the two in my opinion.

    Barnsley fans not happy. Cant blame them, they were awful. Young side with no experienced heads to guide them! http://barnsleyfc.org.uk/threads/board-out.283652/

    Watching the Barnsley v Brentford game on Sky. Stated at beginning that both sets of fans disgruntled with lack of investment after selling a lot of their best players at the end of last season. Interesting that the Barnsley teams average age is 22 which is very low for a championship side. They do seem to be lacking a few experienced players at that level. 1-1 at HT
