I donít have names but the next few days could be very exciting so I hear

Good to curry favour with the local politicians/council by showing a long term commitment to on field investment when you are hoping for land acquisition so I hear  Wink

Iíve heard that point has been reiterated to the council and the board have decided to show their commitment this window

Exciting times ahead I hearÖ.

Has anyone else heard this?

If your prediction or prophesy fails to materialize then it might be difficult to explain away. Surely your post would be better on the 'Redev' thread?

Iíve honestly heard no names.
My assumption (and itís only that) although when I was told things it does make sense is that certain individuals who want to see value for money for the club before any land deal and have the ear of the council may have pointed out that there has been no redevelopment and no long term investment in the playing side of things showing only minimal commitmentÖ
Maybe just maybe the council would like to see more tangible long term investment to help the future stability of the club to appease individuals concerns before green lighting a land acquisition.
I think it could be argued that is a valid point.

Maybe the board have realised without further long term commitment to the actual football club the chances of land acquisition are slimmer than a board that is fully behind a push for promotion.

Just the vibes Iím getting but as I say that makes sense to me and would perhaps begin to bridge the gap between board and individuals who currently seem against anyone profiting to the tune of millions without first showing long term commitment.

Iím pretty sure the next few days will be exciting and may begin to bring the waring factions closer together rather than leave them further apart than ever.

If correct thatís got to be a good thingÖ.

The vibes i'm getting are that the Council just want shot of the land, want a bit of cash in the bank and then they can wash their hands of the whole sorry saga.....including washing their hands of the club. Nothing I have heard reference the proposed deal indicates to me that the Council are particularly bothered what happens on the pitch....certainly not to the point where it would influence any deal.

Iíve heard a couple of names but didnít get the sense when I was told on Monday that anything was imminent.
Canít see it being Marquis this early in the window, Pompey want to explore a permanent deal before agreeing to a loan

Shoey you have over the years posted not too dissimilar 'information' which can be grossly misleading either by intention or otherwise! Fortunately you do advise that your theory is an assumption. Whether your assumption is correct or not ....will have to wait and see. Apologies for being a sceptic. Please try and get to a Cobblers game as every little helps!

No intention whatsoever , itís a positive post.
I must admit I was sceptical myself but I can see the logic.
Whether it comes to pass who knows??
Iíve personally never been against the board making money from land acquisition as Iíve posted many times.
I can however see why other individuals may want to see more long term commitment before the council agrees to do this.
Itís striking a balance thatís important.

Letís be honest , some decent signings promotion , league one football and youíd have a more saleable asset anywayÖ.

If it was me Iíd be looking at investing in the club , trying to get promotion and then selling the club and the land to a new owner as a package.

The fact the land and the club are separate is the issue imo.

A league one club and the land with certain planning permissions must still be worth hell of a lot of money , I do concede that the owners may have no intention of this and will wait forever and a day to sell on the land as a separate entity.
They do own it after all.

The current strategy however doesnít seem to be met with universal enthusiasm and has one hurdle after another.

I canít help but think that DB and KT could have walked away having still made a large profit if theyíd have sold club and ground as a package the last time we were in league one.

At the end of the day a profits a profit.

My worry to be fair is once the land deal is done and the club is up for sale what is it worth??
Not much imo
The new buyer wonít own the ground and there are little in the way of assetsÖ.
Plus who knows the asking price??

Itís all about striking a deal to keep everyone happy and thatís clearly not the case at the moment hence a reevaluation of the land value.

I was only posting a rumour on a transfer rumours page and the reasons I believe it may have legsÖ.
If I owned the club and could do anything to accelerate the land acquisition then I would.

But has as been said before I donít own the club and itís the prerogative of the owners to do what they think is best for themselves.

My one wish is that itís sorted out to the benefit of all concerned.

Weíre the names you heard of a different level to our normal signings??
Just wanted a guide on whether the positive news Iíd heard was true or a load of codswallop  Grin

This is one of the best catch up mornings for a long time! Actually laughed twice  Grin
Not clever enough to quote multiple lines but West Stand OAP "No, they tend to sag with age" and SadOldGit "If it was up to me I would buy someone good" are forum gold. The old boys are on form!

Going back to Shoemakers thought on council saying they want to see the club show intent before they will (or words to that effect, hope I haven't misrepresented), its certainly interesting and I can see some logic to it, but I don't think the council should be getting involved like that. NTFC is a private business and they should be able to run it as they want, with the correct scrutiny from the likes of the Trust, fans etc. I don't believe that the council would dictate how any other company should be ran in order to get planning approvals for example. I know 'its different' but at its simplest its the same as lots of other land sales which the council will (should) have a process / guidelines for.

To bring it back to topic from the slight detour, its encouraging if we are close to some signings but with a huge game on Saturday, I think today is the latest to sign someone this week if we hope them to have a real influence come the weekend.

I agree with all the above but I find it interesting that the supporters trust felt the need to link up with the council who have since then felt it necessary to reevaluate the price of the land in question.
The council are obviously prepared to listen to the trust on this point which imo still makes them impartial, itís more a case of taking advice from all sides
Just my opinion
