    If the consortium takeover takes place , they seem to like young inexperienced managers, think Daniel Stendel had only 1 years experience before he took the Barnsley job , think Ian McCall is too long in the tooth to put up with an Investment Company telling him what players he’s going to get etc etc . Don’t think we’ll need to worry about it anyway . as it’s doubtful the supposed takeover will ever happen .

    Can’t see Ian McCall working to that template, getting young inexperienced players foisted on him , I’m sure his lawyer has made sure he has a water tight contract.

    2 points JJ , not all shareholders want to sell to the Consortium/ Investment Company and if the Investment Company doesn’t make any money where are the contingency plans after that .

    The moneyball template doesn’t work , their main objective is to maybe get lucky with some young players and sell them for a profit regardless of the circumstances. When building a football team , you always need experienced players to help the youngsters and also mentor and guide them in to being professional football players. Some of the time there might not be any monetary value for example of a 33yr at the end of his contract but his value is obviously his experience on the park and managing games .

    Tell you what that Gerry Britton is a busy guy , Chief Executive , General Manager , Director of Football , Interim First Team Coach , even turned out in Dools testimonial. Our very own “ Super hero “

    No idea why Mansell wasn’t on the bench .

    Agree Kenny Miller , but we’ve got a total lack of options upfront, there was no forward on the bench today, looks like McCall doesn’t rate Lewis Mansell but if that’s all we’ve got at the moment at least it’s an option to nick a goal. I’m sure McCall will sort this out hopefully in the January window.

    Think McCall will sort things out , our lack of firepower is a big concern, mid table would be a good season

    Think they’ve taken a loan out at Barnsley as well, hopefully David Beattie has done his due diligence correctly .

    Surely if none of the deals are suitable, then the status quo remains until something comes along with possibly a bit more substance .

    JJ , with all due respect, the Clubs you mentioned there you can see where there could be a financial windfall , Champions League money , English Premier money , the tv deals in England and Spain. The people involved are getting into a scenario where if we break even or make a slight profit it’s a success and that’s where all the cynicism is coming from.

    Of course there are business people out there who aren’t on the Board , we’ve got sponsors who are indirectly connected to PTFC who might want to step up , things evolve over a period of time or we would still have Miller Reid or Jim Oliver.

    Sorry JJ , there are people not on the current Board who are known to both you and I , some of them have got between 3 and 7% shares , are you really telling me there is nothing in it for them ?
