    Well, what a huge surprise. Seemed a good bloke, that Tony Evans, with all the right contacts. When will they ever learn?

    Whilst the way it ended under the Trust’s ownership was poor, they were sinned against more than sinning. And, despite running a club with NSF all control of it’s former asset, the still managed one of only 6 promotions the club has achieved in it’s history.

    The £200k that they’ve argued about is costs that have been run up as a result of decisions Evans made, so they’re quite right to expect his side to cover those costs.

    Those costs are the important thing here – plenty of money has had to be spent to get in the likes of Hamann and a number of decent players. Those costs would surely have left us over budget, even with Evans coming in. And there would be even more similar costs throughout the season, as it’s not much of a secret that the whole plan to keep the club going along until a deal can be done for a new stadium in a year or two – hence there being a number of property-types who have shareholdings in the club.

    There absolutely must be something else in the wings – the shareholders wouldn’t call his bluff & then risk the club going into administration again in a few months. Not only would the shareholders lose out on their original investment, they’d lose the stadium proposal.

    Football fans get the owners they deserve.

  5. Sean says:

    ^ So those of us in Stockport who stick by our local team deserve a yearly rotation of owners who are at best accidentally negligent & at worst wilfully so, whereas those in our town who ignore their local team deserve Arab billionaires giving them Champion’s League football?

    That doesn’t quite work for me.
