The official "Takeover Completed" thread

Recommended Posts


Guy on his Twitter says there will be no deal tomorrow or anywhere in the near future due to the Tax Case.

Sounds a bit like a Clown to be honest.

I'd fancy he's a worried Celtic supporter. ;)

The initial tax 'query' has been known about for long enough so I doubt Whyte would have seriously pursued a sale if he wasn't confident of obtaining an indemnity from MIH with respect to this.

Club and MIH also remain positive that they will be successful in fending the investigation off - perhaps not winning the case but certainly not having to pay anything near the scale of the Kerrydale Street accountants suggest we'll be liable for.

I'm pretty sure the sale can and will progress irrespective of whether we win or lose this case.

I am in no way a sceptic, indeed I actually believe Craig Whyte will be a major investor, however I have certain doubts about your source Frankie, or indeed how closely involved in the deal he actually is. I have had my doubts about Mr Whyte's credentials but was told by someone, who I trust quite a bit, that he was the man; someone else I know who is not so close to things seems convinced about Whyte also. It would not surprise me in the least if this was not your 'conventional takeover', but had something else to it. Anyway, we'll see

By the way Frankie, I rate much of what you say rather highly, and hope your source is 100% correct

You'll note that a couple of weeks back I posted that there may be other late bids in competition to the Whyte one so I'd agree that this takeover is far from conventional and you're far from the only one who wonders who exactly Craig Whyte is and who is backing him.

I'll add to this that I imagine PLUS will only know about any deal when it is completed and not before!

The LSE doesn't have a Glasgow branch and hasn't had for decades. Unless of course the dude's source is a time lord.

I hope Frankie is correct, but not getting my hopes up. Will believe it when I see it all done.

Having said that I would believe Frankie before most others on this forum.

I genuinely enjoy Frankies posts etc and i hope this doesnt bite him on the arse.

HOWEVER he is only passing info on and everyone should take it as they view it rather than gospel

Hearing extremely strong information that the deal will indeed go through tomorrow.

Keep an eye on PLUS from tomorrow am folks!

Seems right (tu)

The reporter in the Herald mentioned it in his article about the UEFA stuff, he said the deal should be done in the next 2 days, with delays being caused by lawyers and interested parties holding out for the best deals.

As much as I respect Frankie and his reliability throughout this thread, I won't be holding my breath for this deal to go through tomorrow.

PS....for those out of the financial loop, the london stock exchange does indeed have an office in Glasgow at the Regis suite in Buchanan street, clarity and factual accounting at all times. Fucked if I know how that would affect anything though. :sherlock:
