God these boards are depressing, even if someone started a thread saying "Peter Reid has cured cancer" it would still be met with the usual moans and groans, "he should be focussed on bleddy training", "Hope it doesn't distract him from writing his managers comments".
A few months back, the majority of posts on here were adamant that the club was doomed, that it would go into liquidation and that would be the end of it, and you kind of get the impression many would prefer that, to have something truly worth moaning about. As far as I can see, this statement is a damn site more positive that no news at all, or news that the deal had not been signed.
I think I'm right in saying that we can make up to 20 signings whilst in admin providing we can prove that the cost will be covered so getting a squad together, while being difficult, isn't impossible.
Rather than sitting on PASOTI doom mongering all day the Trust and a few others are doing a great job and sacrificing a lot of time and energy being proactive and pressing the parties involved to provide valuable information that helps make the picture much clearer for the rest of us who aren't able, or willing, to offer the same level of commitment. I'm sure that they have plenty of other stuff to be doing and would quite happily knock it on the head if all they get as a result is flack for doing so!
Shooting the messenger springs to mind.
