Storrie on 'possible' Aussie investment?

Storrie on 'possible' Aussie investment?

As we all know Peter Storrie is off mixing business with pleasure in Australia - I could do with some of their weather to cheer me up at the moment I tell ya...

Well, 'reports' have grown over the days that that investment is being sought from places such as Hong Kong, and of course Australia, with Storrie telling AAP that he is expecting answers 'within a very short period' regarding talks that have taken place with 'potential' investors.

He is quoted in The News as saying the following to AAP about this sought investment: 'I've been talking to a couple of parties on that.

'They're interim stages at the moment but obviously we've been talking to a couple of parties to see what interest there is.

'There's a lot of interest in Australian businesses in the Premier League ... a lot of people know me over here because I used to have soccer schools over here when I was with West Ham.'

Storrie says that he has just had a 'general discussion' with potential parties who 'have got all the financial information and all the documents that were needed,' so they are now 'studying those' before they come back to him within that 'very short period' of time mentioned with their decision.

He maintains that things are getting sorted at the club and the debt is being 'reduced all the time' so the club remains, so long as we stay in the premier league, a good investment: 'you can only base it on the new owners who have put a considerable amount of finance into the club to help reduce the debt.

'I think anyone investing in the club at the moment, it would be a good investment because the debt's being reduced all the time and as long as we can stay in the Premiership it'll be a good investment.'

Yep I know there are a fair amount of quotes to wade through from Storrie, although it was best to let him do the talking and then let people say what they think on this.

I guess I say, time will tell - although we cannot afford too much time! But it is apparently only a 'very short period' of time to wait on the outcome of what these talks will bring...

I cannot believe they sent Storrie half way across the world to find investors. Look what he came back with the last two times!

"As long as we can stay in the Premiership it'll be a good investment." Well that's not a very good selling gambit is it. If I was a potential investor I'd look at the league table, listen to PS's words and say 'thanks but no thanks'.
