Town: Evans Not Actively Looking to Sell
Friday, 26th Feb 2021 19:43

Town have issued a statement in response to the news of takeover interest in the club.

As reported yesterday, and in greater detail earlier this afternoon, a largely US-based group is looking to complete a takeover of the Blues.

However, in a statement the club insist that owner Marcus Evans is not touting the club around although would, as he has said in the past, listen to interest.

A spokesman said: “Marcus Evans reiterates that he is not actively looking to sell the club and remains fully focused on taking Ipswich Town back to the Championship.

“However, as he has also stated in the past, he would speak to interested parties if they can prove themselves to be credible buyers that would provide sustainable, long-term investment."

Let's face it, Marcus, you've not actively looked to do anything positive for Ipswich Town. Why change now?

Ah, remember the days when everyone was focused on taking Ipswich Town back to the Premiership??
Give it a few years and they will be fully focused on taking Ipswich back to the 2nd Division.

We all need to stand up now and tell him he is not welcome at our club. He has done untold damage to our club in the past ten years. Today’s rumours gave me hope for an end to this misery. Whatever the consequences we need him to go and do whatever is necessary to make that happen. The easiest way is not giving him any more of your money.

Cant the man just be honest and straight with us just the once. It's clear to everyone that something is happening behind the scenes so why insult our intelligence?

Just good negotiation, he's hardly going to come out and say how much he wants the deal to go through until its all agreed.

Probably correct. He's not "actively" looking to sell but is open to offers. Now accept the "alleged" offer and F off Evans!!!?

''However, in a statement the club insist that owner Marcus Evans is not touting the club around...''

That would be a first coming from the glorified ticket tout. #EvansOut

Was it the Charming sweet talking Lambert persuading you not to sell Evans ??? Frightened he will lose his Job if you sell ?? so that was the secret uninteresting meeting he had with you then. !!
As Simon said in his statement Lambert must do a Damn good interview.

Dont panic, there is probably a non disclosure agreement in place between the parties - publicly Evan's can't say anything else

Evans won’t come out and say he’s selling as it will weaken any negotiations he has. He will want to come out of this the best way possible therefore he won’t want to just seem like a push over. It will all be quiet from both parties until it’s literally signed on the dotted lines....hopefully sooner rather than later

"and remains fully focused on taking Ipswich Town back to the Championship"

Wait, wasn't the five year plan to get us to the premiere league "where we belong"?

That bar has dropped a bit, eh?

Our slightly (cough) ambiguous League position is surely a factor in this. Over the next few weeks the value must change like the Dow Jones. Our form under scrutiny, ME hedging his bets, holding on a bit longer while the buyer is calculating what he can get away with ... We will see.
