    I have heard some very reliable rumours recently , but there is a post on the fans forum with photos etc , documentation blurred out for legal reasons. basically Hoffman Elliot and 2 other businessmen from Coventry have agreed a deal to take the club over , and there are a couple of things left to iron out still .
    If it happens il accept the apologies later , if it don't then il apologies then

    The moment you mentioned Hoffman it lost what little believability it had.

    If you don't think Hoffman is credible you clearly no nothing about business.

    We will see , I do get a lot of info from very reliable sources , for example I found out beavon and Reilly was joining 24 hours before fans knew , I found out Venus was leaving a week before people started talking .
    I wouldn't dismiss this

    A man who was part of the inner sanctum of SISU at one point, then made a derisory offer of £1 for the club - topped off with 'offering' to pay the rent to get us to come back to the Ricoh (a deal that made profit for him and his associates).

    Most people on this forum shit more credibility than that man has.

    3 business men who have a mutual friendship over Coventry City meet for coffee.

    I'll believe it when I see it, and if half the stuff that's mentioned on that Facebook page can be believed then it's utter bs

    What a load of rubbish
    Both Joe and Gary share a box at Ricoh most home games and have seen them together at away games.
    All wishful rumours.

    No but neither do I believe the story from what I know they're good friends and see each other regularly. Think people have put 2 and 2 together and made 5

    I think it's more than that , that's what I have to pass on .
    Let's wait and see , quite clearly and understandably wasn't going to be received well by many

    As somebody previously mentioned, they are both regularly together, people start rumours trying to make out their 'in the know' when really they know as much as anybody else knows, if it happens great but I'll hold judgement
