  1. Absolutely solid suggestion.
  2. That's a great way of putting it. Or how about this - why not give people a choice? If they prefer to put int C1872's existing vehicle, cool, if not let us invest and have equity? Have both options? (I say this because the shares aren't on the market to buy, this is a closed arrangement between them). I mean, Dave King could stand for election to the board of C1872 and effectively help control back his own old shareholding for free with this arrangement. (I think TBH it would end up like university rector elections where whoever has notoriety ends up elected, presumably ex-fo
  3. I feel like the open market is more of the way too.

I mean from DK's perspective, he gets the same money. I think it's good that a block like this exists, but when it gets big I think it gets vulnerable to its own governance issues.

Feels like a corruptible environment, with the club being run by whoever has the ear of the right person. And their 25% shareholding threshold is surely a liability when it comes to new share issues, as they may not want to dilute under 25%? (given their pitch that having
  6. Where is the 'like twice' button?
  7. Interesting thought. They might also want to get the Milan game out of the way too and pin it on him, and find a way to look sanctimonious, before forcing him into a seppuku ritual disembowelling. (Of course, as soon as I press submit, he might be out on his ear, and Paul Lambert in a uber.)
