I mentioned this guys name to one of my colleagues yesterday, only for them to remind me that I had met him at a function in London a few months back. I'm assuming that it was just another name then.

Anyway... He's at another thing I am attending in a couple of weeks. Might not tell him I'm a Cobblers supporter. Could put him off for life  Grin Grin
Sell him the dream and what a great oppertunity to head the soon to be fastest growing club in the football league.
No pressure Tel, we're relying on you😉

Any sale to new owners will hopefully include half the old running track and not have it all carved up with the club losing its enabling lands for any future hotel/ conferencing/ match day club bar etc, the thing Kelvin fought for in the name of the club, he could now run off with leaving us high and dry?
Please someone/ trust member/ ITK,  point out to me that this could never happen?

Best you offer the Missus first, an indecent proposal if you like. That's unless it's Patmore.

If you were a potential investor would you put a bid in now or bide your time given the state of the club. I'm talking cold hard cash here.

I dont want an investor or partner coming in - we need a takeover, how realistic that is I have no idea. Anyone looking to buy us must see the importance of us remaining a league club and if things dont happen soon it might get terminal.

KT et al are never going to give up the land they have accquired and as the leases on this land do not belong to NTFC they are hardly likely to be on the table during any sale negotiations.

I would suggest they would be as we would be worth nothing without the land

Like KT gives a shít. He has the land. At the end of the day if the club goes to the wall he will lose what he has put into the club(and I am sure it has not been only his money) and has a millstone removed from around his neck and will still make a handsome profit out of the 160,000( I think that is right) he paid for CDNL.

The club and the portion of land from regularised leases should still attract interest I would think. It is still a decent plot of land for stadium plus room for more things. The grass area at the Southern tip of the car park was original site for a hotel in one of the many DC ideas.

CDNL (KT and Bower)  still has control of all the land ( except for the bit handed back to club control) as before the sorry mess started. This is the money shot.

Insane to buy a club yet theres a lot of lower league clubs without such a large catchment area, without the surrrounding footprint of land. As far as we mere fans know there is no significant debt to the club.
Why wouldnt this attract buyers / investors?
Well be kept in the dark until the deal is done

With our fans? I just wouldn't bother . The upside is nowhere near enough.

My thoughts entirely. The club HAS become a more attractive proposition under KT's tenure. Whilst there is a lot of obsessing around the land around the East stand, the stadium sits on a good chunk of land all round.
