    I’ve got a mate who supports the Stags, and asked him why Radford doesn’t just buy the stadium out-right. Unsurprisingly Haslam will only sell for a ridiculous price. My mate didn’t know exactly how much though.

    Not sure why Radford should pay Haslam for a stadium which he may not legally own. Surely it is time legislation was put in place to prevent this type of blatant asset stripping.

    Haslam wants circa £3m for Field Mill – its worth about half that.

    Haslam shifted the ownership of the ground into his ownership the day he sold the club – in actual fact what he did was issues dividends to himself from the club (no actual money involved as the club didnt have any – is that legal?) and with the dividends he “purchased” Field Mill from the club. – All that happened on paper is that the ownership of the ground changed from MTFC to Haslam i think.

    So the question all Stags (and football in general) fans are asking is?

    “Why should Radford give Haslam a penny for something that he effectively stole (allegedly of course) from the club in the first place?”

    I for one make Radford right – he shouldn’t give the man a penny.

    Take Haslam to a court of law and pull his pants down, after that, leave him in Mansfield Market place for the locals.

    MTFC forever. Up the Stags!
