    Jim White just said cov fans stay tuned as he has "big news" for us!!! Hope it is new and not regurgitated from what we already know.

    Sounds ominous.

    Who would go direct to him to release news? I know Fisher has a speed dial to him.

    But Jim did slate him last time he refused to go on. Or changed his mind to go on I should say. Fingers crossed for good but I agree it's more likely a big disappointment.

    I'm going all in on Fisher being replaced. Joy's token reward to us if we stop crying about the takeovers.

    I think this might be the day I finally hit the 2:1 likes to message ratio. What a day to be alive!

    Without this going down the same road as the other thread, I am only bidding on Stevenson and Willis.

    No said coming up but promoted as"Coventry fans have we got news for you" so I'm lead to believe the Vince McMahon deal has finally gone through and Messi and Ronaldo have signed. Can't see what else it could be!

    That's not big news. That's little insignificant L2 news that Talksport wouldn't give a shit about.

    I was invited to the Wednesday v Huddersfield match last night and was told by a SWFC Director that he had heard a deal was close to completion by Mr Hoffman and friends.
    SISU want out he said but will play hard ball to the end and squeeze out every penny. But Mr Hoffman is the only bid in town and they all know that. Interesting times.

    If a deal was close to completion doesn't that mean it's been accepted and is going through?

    The story I heard (was told) was a deal was closer than the latest CET and Hoffman announcement had suggested. We will see in next 48 hours. I think the latest bid could well be accepted in a slightly different structured way (more money up front) and may be the beginning of the end of SISU. Fingers crossed eh !!
