Barnsley were taken over by a  Chinese billionaire, didn't do them a lot of good.

How much did they spend if anything?

Have they actually pumped any money into the club?

No they don't.

If Leeds were taken over and they built a 70k stadium it'd be packed every week.

We had 9k on for a uefa cup match.

The Leeds United fan base are exactly the same as any other fan base, they only turn up when they are winning.

They average 30k+ despite being total shite. And had similar crowds in league one.

They’ve also been out of the top flight for 14 years. Any club has “potential” if it has money behind it and it’s run competently.

As regards "potential" the downside with BWFC is that the club is geographically situated in the most competitive catchment area for footie fans on the planet, with more professional football teams in a 40 mile radius competing for business than anywhere else. Teams like Norwich and Newcastle are well supported because they have no competition in huge catchment areas but we have competition on all sides which massively reduces the potential for sales and therefore profits.

Leeds had 8 years in the 2nd Div in the 1980s too.historically, there just isn't the money at Leeds that there is at some clubs.

We could do with an update asap because if Anderson is genuinely trying to bring in either investors or to sell the club, it really needs to be sorted at the earliest possible opportunity to give us time to plan and recruit for next season.
As it stands, players contracts and new signing activity is in limbo to some extent and we really don't want to miss the boat again.
I appreciate it's difficult to say anything substantive during the middle of negotiations but it wouldn't do any harm if a few words about the objectives and anticipated timescale were spoken.

Also you don't just come in and sign it over to new owners.....there are all sorts of legal paperwork, contracts, Stadium, and backroom stuff....not to mention approval from the league for starters. And then get players/manager etc....  Hard to see it at typical BWFC speed but we shall see how it plays out.

Aside from Nixon’s tweets has there been any indication a takeover is on the cards?

Iles has mentioned a few things I seem to recall (probably on twiter following Nixon's tweets').

Maybe there is something in it as Anderson's been unusually quiet so far since our last game.

I would have thought he would have been on by now pushing the Season Tickets, so maybe there is something in the wind after all?

BN reports that Anderson will be meeting with Parky today and is expected to tell him to crack on with trying to sign players. Not sure what that means but it does imply a sale is not imminent.
Its also contract D Day for some of the youth players so something should happen.

With the dust now settling on that memorable final day of the season, it is very much a case of ‘business as usual’ at Bolton Wanderers Football Club as we prepare for the new Sky Bet Championship campaign which gets underway in August.
It was important that we all had some time to enjoy the moment and to reflect on last season as a whole, but work is constantly going on behind the scenes and we are not sitting still.
Plans are firmly underway for next season and with that in mind, the manager and I had a very good and productive meeting on Friday.

Phil will be speaking with the out of contract players this week to inform them whether or not they will be offered new deals with the club.
We will also be looking to strengthen the squad with new signings and we are currently speaking with a number of players and their representatives.
There has been a lot of speculation in the media and on social media, and I completely understand that silence can often fuel rumours, but we shall keep you fully updated on all our business, so please watch this space.

Away from on-field matters, talks are still on going with potential investors and I’m currently speaking with three separate parties who have expressed an interest in investing.
This may or may not happen, but I can reassure you that any negotiations will not detract or hamper our determination to strengthen our squad ahead of the new campaign and indeed, funds are available for the manager.

There has been some speculation linking Phil with other jobs and I can completely understand why given the excellent and outstanding job he has done with us.
What I will say is that Phil is under contract with Bolton Wanderers Football Club and he is the right man for the job in hand.
We will not entertain any enquiries for him whatsoever and hopefully the size of any potential compensation package would be sufficient to dissuade any approaches.  

Although there is not much football to occupy us during these summer months, staff at the club and hotel are working hard as usual so that we are all ready for the new season.
Improvement works up at the training ground and on the pitch at the stadium are well underway, while we’ve had an excellent response to season tickets which we announced last week.
Most of you are renewing once again, but we are also welcoming supporters on board who haven’t purchased a season ticket before or haven’t done so for a long time.
So, I’d like to thank you all for the loyalty and commitment you have shown. If you haven’t already purchased or renewed your ticket, please do so now.
You still have time to buy them before the early purchase period ends. Click HERE for more information.
Don’t forget, if you are a member of our Lifeline scheme you will be able to receive a 5% discount off the cost of your season ticket. More details about Lifeline can be found HERE.

Also, our hospitality packages for next season are now available and start from £995 (inc VAT per person) if bought during the early purchase period. Please contact the BWFC Sales Team on 01204 673761 or email [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for more information.

Our new home and away kit for next season meanwhile will be revealed shortly and will go on sale soon, so we shall keep you posted.

As you will all be aware, Macron’s stadium naming rights of our stadium is coming to an end and we are in talks with several interested parties. Again, we shall keep you fully informed once we are in a position to do so.

Before the season gets underway however, we have a number of events at the stadium and hotel which I would urge you to support.
We are all excited to be welcoming The Killers and Little Mix to the venue later in the summer. We have a number of hospitality packages available for both of these concerts, so please call the BWFC Sales Team on 01204 673761 for more information.

The Hotel meanwhile have got some great football-themed events coming up which should whet your appetites before the World Cup gets underway.
They are holding a very special Q&A evening with England legend Paul Gascoigne on Saturday 2 June.
This will be a fascinating night and I’m sure Paul will have plenty of stories to tell from his illustrious career. Click here for more details.
Before that, the Hotel will be screening a preview of the hotly anticipated football comedy The Bromley Boys.
The film is based on a true story and is very funny. It stars a number of famous faces including Martine McCutcheon, Alan Davies and Jamie Foreman, while my younger son, Ross, plays a leading role.
There has been a lot of hype surrounding this film, and I’m really pleased that we are able to screen it before it gets a wider release.
Tickets are just £10 per person for this and there will also be a Q&A opportunity with some of the production crew and cast. Please click here for more information.

Kind regards,
Ken

I know who the three interested parties he's taking to about investing, are. They're the Tooth Fairy, the Loch Ness Monster and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I hope the talks are successful

Tooth Fairy has little cash left... given away too much;

Loch Ness Monster has never been known to have cash;

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer also has been giving to little kids every year... cash poor.

Better to stick with a leprechaun who found a pot of gold.
