MikeO Posted August 5, 2014 Report Share Posted August 5, 2014 ....and also, Ross has reputedly admitted that Fortress was used as a means to avoid Gregg getting control of the club, but he also said that this was a good thing, and that taking the money ultimately would have seriously undervalued the club. "Because had he not done so, Gregg WOULD have taken control of this Club...and what would he have done? Well, you don't know...I, of course, do as I was in on the management/Board meetings.Trust me when I say this - the SFF may not have happened but Kenwright's decision to go public with news of the talks WAS wholly justified.Another thing...for your info only...Samuelsen DID colme through with both the fund and the cash....but by that point the SFF had served its purpose...Bill told him to go away...Why haven't we announced that small detail? ....because it doesn't really matter....what mattered was achieved.The belief that we are all f***ing idiots in here who couldn't run a sandwich stall is ill-founded....CL, a massively-improved performance and turnover, a place in the Deloitte's Top Twenty listing for the first time......And still you moan about something which was designed to be used as a means to an end.......nothing moreIf we did what Kenwright's detractors wish us to do - produce the SFF investment on the terms we talked about 12 months ago - this Club would be (approx ) 30 per cent UNDER-VALUED..."
