That’s not at all surprising. Due to football’s fashionability there are loads of very very wealthy people prepared to chuck some serious cash into a football club. Whether they do it with a view to becoming even richer in the long run, because they just fancy owning a football club or in the odd rare instance because they actually support their local club.
Whilst our owner is relatively poor, he has built a model that makes it virtually impossible for somebody to buy the club and the land upon which it sits. Unless of course they are willing to pay way over the odds. And even if you’re stinking rich you know a bad deal when you see one. Darragh Mcanthony had no affiliation with Posh (he’s a Liverpool fan)he just wanted to own a club. There’s no way he would have come near us and I’m not sure his overtures would have got past first base anyway.
We’re trying to run our club along the lines of a business that needs to balance the books. For a lot of others it is a sporting adventure. Like a night at the casino.
And we as fans flip flop on whether we like the stability and “you know where you are” or whether we wouldn’t mind a go on the rollercoaster loads of others are on.
