    Key questions, I would like answered are:

    Did the Notts County Supporters Trust take legal advice on the £5 million bank guarantee? (It seems not as nobody has challenged Munto Finance or the relevant bank. Would a liquidator try and enforce this guarantee for the benefit of the creditors?)

    What has happened to the Norwegian investors who were going to invest £25 million?

    What salaries are currently being paid by the club to Peter Trembling and Sven Goran Eriksson? What does Sven actually do to earn his salary?

    Why would anybody invest £25 million in Notts County and presumably pay large salaries to Peter Trembling and Sven Goran Eriksson to run the club for them for the next five seasons? You could buy most Championship clubs who have more supporters than Notts County. Why not try and buy Crystal Palace off the administrators or Sheffield Wednesday? £25 million would pay off Wednesday’s debts and they are rumoured to be making a profit on the playing side.

    If Peter Trembling makes a personal profit from any deal, will he give it to the Notts County Supporters Trust who previously owned the club? After all, according to David Conn’s article in The Guardian, Trembling “negotiated and recommended the handover of the club to Munto Finance in the summer”.

    It is amazing that County fans still phone Radio Nottingham on a regular basis and say that Trembling is doing a good job because the team are doing well. They fail to appreciate that the reason they are doing well is that the club has signed better players whose wages the club can no longer afford. Anybody can blow the club’s budget on signing better players and then go bust!! Darren Brown did this at Chesterfield. There were plenty of Spireites who thought he was doing a marvellous job until the truth was revealed.

    Radio Nottingham was yesterdasy saying that the constant Peter ‘dissembling’ Trembling is on the verge of walking due to the abuse directed at him on a supporters website. How very convenient. He walks and blames all the chaos that ensues on abusive fans. Classic fudging tactics.
