No we won't.

No, I don't know the answer to that. Curious? Yes, but 'only' as a concerned supporter. As a journalist, I have other matters to deal with now.

My guess, though, is that Guilfoyle feels obliged to wait as long as he possibly can for 'his' preferred bidder to deliver what has been promised. Also, remember Heaney's words. He has said that "everything the administrators have asked Bishop International to do has been done". Which suggests that the gap between what Guilfoyle has asked for and what Heaney has delivered so far might not be as wide as thought by many.



Rupert, sorry, but that displays the most extraordinary naivity. And I'd be very surprised if it was the view of the Western Morning News.

As you well know, the entire "Irish Bid", "BIL" process has been characterised by an extraordinary degree of obfuscation from the very start. Do you remember your colleagues, and also the journalists at the BBC locally being assured (I could use a stronger word) that Kevin Heaney was nothing to do with this deal? Not least by Kevin Heaney?

Furthermore, your assertion that the administrator "has to accept the best deal" is right. Almost.

Because the best deal has to be a deliverable deal. We still have no proof that the BIL deal is deliverable. FL approval, or no FL approval.

Yes, I remember that well. Of course that was an example of deception, but that does not mean that everything uttered by the protagonists in this sorry saga bears scant resemblance to the truth. The Heaney statement which I mentioned and which you've highlighted came later in the process. You may be right, it may be another example of total tosh, but I'm merely raising the possibility that it isn't. The statement came from an interview in which Heaney had been provoked into breaking his silence. He was more forthcoming with his reactions and comments than he had been for a long time, I believe.

Maybe I'm clutching at straws and am just hoping that we're not being lied to all along by the various protagonists. I no longer write about Argyle and am no longer able to attend any Argyle matches, but that doesn't mean I've stopped caring.
