Barnsley owner wants SPL club

Recommended Posts

Ex member of the SaS

Over on .net they are claiming Hearts have been approached, but as usual they forget we own the club and won't be selling anytime soon.

Think it would be a big mistake for any club to sign up to this ( even if the GFA allow someone to own two clubs )

Apparently St Johnstone are considering his £3.20 offer but hoping for £4.00

I wonder if the owners of Man City would like to buy our club

"We would look to bring the same methods we employ with our other clubs such as Barnsley - which is a young team, data-led, balancing a budget sensibly. We would look to run a club as a proper business. "

 

That is they would be looking to make themselves a handsome profit.

Indeed, but "proper businesses" in that circumstance just go bust and the owners liquidate the assets and walk away.

Tread carefully would be my advice. Profit from developing players is the most important thing, not which league the club is in or the history behind it

Maybe this is the “difficult decision” wee Ron Gordon was referring to? 🤔

If this guy thinks we are going to sell hibs to him, he can think again.  As someone above astutely points out, we own them and have done so for around 140 years and they are not for sale at any price.

The Rangers it is then. The fans can show them how to do the waking away bit as well.

Would happily see Hearts sold to the right multi trillionaire sheik but not these sort of jokers.

We do, but much like Ron Gordon, we have no affection for them. I vote we flog them to these charlatans.

If it’s not Romanov or immediately related to Romanov, not interested.

Has to be Hibs, fast buck for Pony up Ron on a short venture and he already knows the fans are not willing to support (sorry pay)for his ideas. Fans not capable of fan ownership and happy to have other people pump money in to their team.

The man is a vulture. I wouldn't touch any offer from him with a shitty stick. Fortunately we are in good hands and in a reasonably good place. There are others out there though that would jump at his offer. He'll mend them if they do.

Yeah it's more likely Hibs would do a deal with them or Rangers.

As a soon to be completely fan owned club, and with someone currently at the helm who will not deviate from that course, we are thankfully “in a better place than others” to avoid these sort of scavengers. Some other Scottish clubs would have “difficult decisions” to make, should they turn up at their door. 😎

Ann Budge has confirmed that she has been approached and rejected an offer from this guy that owns Barnsley FC,  she informed the board of this when it happened,  at least she has been honest about it,  now then,  over to our city “rivals” owner Ron,  has he been approached ? I wonder, and if not, why not?

Did this not happen last year or the year before? I seem to remember Ann saying someone had approached and been turned away. Is this a new story or just one rehashed from before due to Ann cutting wages and the media looking to stir it.

The story was about Ron Gordon I think.  Soon after, he took over Hibs.  Same could happen again.  Gordo deals in consortiums and Barnsley also do the consortium buisness.  They might do a deal to decide who gets the Rump and who gets the Sirloin type deal.  Obviously Gordo would want the Sirloin.  Although I think maybe the barnsley bunch want the whole thing.

The Barnsley owner lost a manager to us.

He is trying to say we will buy a Scottish club to get some face back and make out Barnsley are a big club

I am sure the Barnsley fans would rather he spent any money he has on them rather than a Scottish side.

I'm guessing he never did bother with the legal action? Their fans seem to think hes a total welt.

 The blokes a billionaire, and he’s not spent a penny of his own money nor will he, if he bought Hearts he wouldn’t spend anything on them ether, it’s all about buying cheap players coaching them into better players and selling for a profit.

I would wet myself if it were our neighbours. Interesting comment from Ron, pre pairing them for bad news.

Not so long ago a certain club used this sort of idea but with young players brought through the ranks. I wonder what ever happened to that "5 year master plan" and where they are now?

Yes I remember now it was Gordon that approached Ann. No way should we allow these money grabbers anywhere near Hearts. Asset strippers of the worst kind, making out they will improve the club but all the time take take take

It can work, Brentford are doing it perfectly, but they are investing lots of money backing to the club.

We can't be sold, we,  the fans own the club and it ain't happening. 

 

At least as soon as Ann hands over the shares, that is...

Not lost on me that the target was two fan owned clubs.
