A buyout on the cards?

Two different, unconnected, people I know have both (within the space of a week) indicated Evans is in talks.

I'd be very wary of changing owners now.

Thank god the Newcastle takeover didn’t happen...

Call me cynical but I’d question why post this on Saturday night having not mentioned it prior this week? Seems a bit of a squiffy rumour to me...

Depends who we get - there are far worse people out there than Evans but there must be better options too.

Poll: Which formation should we play moving forward?

Evans keeps us alive but at the same time is killing us. It’s a wretched existence. Time for change.

Why? The first was about a week ago, but is in isolation. The second may have been today.

You might be right to be sceptical but the logic around the timing seems unfair

The talks stopped after the Newcastle buyout failed, which is a pity as Mike Ashley would make a great owner.

So you reckon the Godolphin deal is back on?

According to Wikipedia, the Marcus Evans' group "organises live business, sports and entertainment events around the world. Its global regional head offices are: Europe – Dublin, US – Chicago and APAC – Kuala Lumpur."

The business is being devastated by the impact of the Corona virus. If the core business is struggling to avoid bankruptcy, then ITFC is an irritating distraction.

If Marcus Evans can get cash out, ownership of the club is likely to change within a few months. Alternatively, ITFC could be forced into administration.

If there is a buyer out there, now is definitely a good time to negotiate a good deal. Aargh I hate these threads that give false hope. 🤔

It wouldn’t happen, and not even a consideration but I wonder if Saudis will try and buy an EFL club and get in PL via backdoor - thei biggest issue was the state sponsored piracy of PL rights

Nail on head. Perfectly summed up.

I wonder how any one person might learn of any takeover talks, let alone two distinct people. Evans can be accused of many things, but indiscretion is not one of them. Assuming the OP is no joke, it would appear that Evans is trying to drum up interest by "placing" information, regardless of whether there is any real interest or not.

Hopes abound!

Erm... a thrid division football clubwith no assets on a downward spiral would be a bit of a gamble at the best of times.... with the provenance of £100million losses in the last decade of decline then it becomes utter madenss.... throw in the near certainty that next season - and for how many seasons in the future cannot continue with crowds - then your rumour becomes just a little bit unsustainable.
