|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Anyone better than the bunch of Icelandic bankers currently in situ!
My vote goes to TF on the assumption he has decent (and legit) financial backers, has proved himself an astute businessman and will improve revenue streams off the pitch, but most of all because he is a fan with our interests at heart.
No Sullivan & Gold!!! They are most famous for their porno industry and secondly for their widespread corruption in Birmingham football club and their unvillingness to spend money in the same club. And thirdly they have ugly suits!!!
i think that we just have to avoid getting in some fake arabs like portsmouth have, could see that one coming a mile off!! i think fernandez is the best option for us at the present time as he is a passionate fan, who is also a shrewd business man.
Isit wrong that i want to vote Intermarket, they apparantly have money and apparantly have a few west hams involved. If both these facts turn out to be true, then surely this would be our best option?
The whole point with Intermarket is who they have fronting the club after a takeover - If it were Terry Brown I would not support it, his gross incompetance and self aggrandisment started us on the slippery slope.If it were Trevor Brooking ,for example - Yes please.It's all very well having the money but the most important aspect is running the club well and by people who are respected and know the club.Likewise I would support TF if he employed these types and not the ones who have made such a mess of it in recent times.
If Intermarket or TF do not have the right personel I would favour G &S.
Challenge what and who?
To "challenge" we need more than just a takeover. It would take hundreds of millions for us to even get close to challenging. Just look at Citeh, they've spent more than £200m and IMO still behind the likes of spurm and villa!!
Arsenal haven't spent like City, far from it, but they're still 'challenging'. A different model that values time and expertise over instant gratification. That would do me nicely.
I've been to Tony Fernandes' office in the Low Cost Carrier Terminal at KL Airport. He's got a desk in the corner of a big open plan office, no walls or partitions, and he has immediate access to all his staff (and they to him). And he's got a whacking great West Ham banner in pride of place. I want him.
just clocked fernandes comment about a great management team - ambiguous as it could refer to dux and nani or it could refer to clarke and Zola .....would be interested how many people who voted for fernandes would still vote fernandes if it meant keeping dux and nani....
One of my best mates is well connected with Lotus. He went to the F1 car launch and ended up chatting to TF. He asked him why he hadn't bought WHU. TF said that if he could have raised all of the money himself he would have. He was adamant though he would not work with G+S.
G+S claim to be WHU through and through but they certainly do not go about their business with any dignity. In fact they are f*****g embarrassing.
We've changed owners - no change on the pitch. We've changed managers - no change on the pitch. Until Green, Faubert, Illunga, Upson, Behrami, Spector, Cole, Tomkins, Gabbidon, McCarthy etc get their **** together or jog on, we are going nowhere but down a division.
