How many times in recent history have we been faced with a 'judgement day' eh?
Today, 10th August 2012, was 'set in stone' as being the day we would find out if this famous old club with 114-years worth of history would be liquidated or not...
Whilst, admittedly, when this news came about a couple of weeks back I was pretty sure that this would prove the conclusive date for us and I was 'happy' to know that our fate would be decided one way or t'other the closer this date has drawn the less my gut feeling has been that this genuinely was the definitive date.
The departure of TBH yesterday has of course made the threat of us folding even less likely, yet it is still not a forgone conclusion I guess...
By all accounts I hear that a parachute payment comes through on, or around, this date so the likelihood is/was there was always likely to be a little bit in the coffers to carry over - with more of the high earners gone, well basically all of them (and Lawrence has agreed to leave), the operating costs should be at an almost bare minimum now.
If today was liquidation day did a takeover need to be completed, if so will this be the case - if 'an agreement in principle' is the case then surely this will be the conclusive factor today, or will it?
Would avoiding liquidation today mean that this is now something almost certainly - at least at this juncture - going to be avoiding now then?
Lets just hope today does bring us some form of resolution, whoever the owners are to be - and I think it is pretty clear who I would prefer to see takeover!
I am also thinking I will make a vow, call it 'burying my head in the sand or not', that if/when ownership issues are sorted out I will pretty much exclusively just get back to talking about football again, after all this is what this site is meant to be about, as I am p****d off with the constant ramblings of virtually everything but this in recent times!
Of course forum talks about whatever anyone wants to talk about will always be the case, and NO ONE will ever be prevented from talking about exactly what they want to - I merely just want to get back to writing about football for the front pages again...
