Minority at the moment…

Big things are happening

They'll be lining up across Wall Street to spend a couple of billion for a minority share of a failing business

1. They won’t
2. It’s just to placate those wanting them gone.
3. Even if a minority was agreed nothing would change.
4. Carry on.

The thread where we all finally agree on something being good?

I guess not.

They often sell shares. They're always shitty ones with no voting rights.

It's extremely unlikely they're going to give up the cash cow.

The only baffling bit is why they bother even showing up every once in a while. I guess it just shows their sheer arrogance/ignorance.

Rashers and Shaw saying it’s a real possibility

what difference will this make?

none.

these investors will not be putting anything into the club, just more $ into the pockets of the glazers.

"it could happen"? f*** off.

The signs are there imo

Surely they know we’re now at peak value for them to get out?

Hopefully it’s absolutely hammered home to them on Monday.

(Not by the scouse smashing us obvs)

Called it.

The reign is crumbling.

Just watch what happens if we get battered by the Scousers and the King departs.

Come Autumn, the protests will be kicking off properly. The toxicity will make the continued ownership untenable.

Time to turn the pressure up, Reds. #GlazersOut

They want out imo

They won’t weaken their hand and come out saying that obviously.

Fair chance financial markets fall off a cliff in the winter which would reduce public value dramatically while rates continue to rise putting pressure on the debt.

Given we're further away from CL places than ever before + they're all spent out (/the starting advantage we had over other clubs in revenue generation has all-but evaporated) it would make it a more sensible time than ever to get out on their part. Strategically they have been absolutely clueless at operating the club. All execs involved would top their careers out at Blackburn in a normal world

Glazers blowing smoke up people's arses again. They have to go.

This means nothing

The naivety is worrying

The glazers won’t sell up out of the goodness of their hearts

They will play games and do what they need to do to continue to feather their nest

This isn’t for the good of the club in the first instance and we need to accept that

Until they go and they are replaced by someone far richer and financially solvent the problem remains

Like Neville said “Now is the time”

And they know it too…

This is the beginning of the end imo.

they've laughed all the way to the bank, having put absolutely nothing on the table. from their perspective, it has been a roaring success.

This.

They bought it to make money. They’ve made money. The end.

The only way they carry on is if our form improves from 'we've just got battered by Brighton and Brentford' to 'at least we'll get Europa League this season'.

If we carry mediocre form into the World Cup, and then hover around 5th & 6th until the end of the season. then they can carry on milking it and have no problems with being called c***s every so often.

If we don't win one of our next two games then shit's on. There will always be value in the club, but if we're shit it will drop. No Europe will hit us financially, sponserships will decrease, not being able to attract the most followed footballers in the world to pose in our new kits every season will cost us financially. If we're will lingering at the bottom of the table after the Southampton game, then what are the chances we will be more valuable in a years time than we are now?

Edit: Not saying I want us to lose or draw the next two games either. I never have and never will want us to go into a game and drop points.
