The clouds gather over the Macron Stadium ahead of the game against @stokecity
Obviously such a great picture got retweeted and it caught the eye of Marc Iles who retweeted it himself with the following comment -
When a pic tells a thousand words...
Lee Anderson saw it and replied - Meaning?
Iles - Meaning lots to sort out Lee. EFL don't appear to be making life easy in a transfer embargo. Your thoughts?
LA - I think you should see a doctor for clinical depression mate .We are all very positive and looking forward to a smashing week you should be2
Iles - Looking forward to writing about a smashing week. Not sure you should make light of that kind of thing, though.
Seems to be daggers drawn between the two then - even though LA later posted this -
Just to clarify @MarcIles and I don't have a problem with each other . Let's talk football and get ready for the season #WeAreTogether and to which Iles replied - More than happy with that diagnosis, doctor...
Also on the same twitter thread some interesting comments from George Bower (who is no longer on the ST Board) and who is a professional in the corporate finance world)
George - Dean and Ken have had 18 months to sort out their business plan & financing. The lack of it speaks volumes. ED picked wrong buyers for club.
Some bloke replying - From what we we're lead to believe, there were no other buyers.
George - That's what we were told. Not what I've been told through people in the industry. Who to believe? There's others now too wanting to buy.
Bloke (Nigel Greenwood) - Not having any connections with the industry, but looking from the outside, I find that difficult to believe.
George - We have to make our own minds up. I personally know one potential buyer. What is it that makes it difficult to believe for you?
Bloke - Only other group to come forward were the supporters trust and they seem to have less cash than the Anderson's.
George - There was also an American group who got pushed to the side. The ST partner did have money but Birch (working for ED) told them DH preferred
George also gave his opinion on things aside from his chat with Nigel Greenwood.
This is his considered view -
Dean and Ken have had 18 months to sort out their business plan & financing. The lack of it speaks volumes. ED picked wrong buyers for club.
Creating spats & arguments has been a theme since last summer. Victim storyline is plausible to the uninitiated in business & Finance.
External funding needs club & owners to have capacity, character, collateral, and capital. The lack of a funded plan is linked to these.
Never boring being a Wanderers fan is it!
