King should have involved the fans in buying shares from the start. He was someone the Support would have rallied round.

 

A Budge type model may have been the best long term way out of Greenco but I doubt King would ever have been comfortable with such a strategy.

It's kind of sad to know that we have/had people like King, Paul Murray, Letham, Park and the like watching on all along, a chap like Kennedy and even McColl willing to help. It makes you sick thinking back on what we got back then and where we ended up.

 

Paul Murray has been involved at every stage of this saga. He may have been unsuccessful, but he certainly wasn't watching on. What is your problem with dealing in fact?

King's only credible way forward is to buy shares from anyone willing to sell. While this goes against King's previous statements that he wants his money to go directly to the club, it is the only way he is going to get any kind of say or influence.

Always the direct and polite one, are we not?

 

King wasn't "watching on" on either, nor Letham. But effectively they did nothing or were not allowed / able to do anything that had any consequence, which is the point.

Same goes for the people who are shareholders that I mentioned above. Shares seem to be the only way to get ahead of Ashley in the boardroom decisions, whether they like it or not.

Disappointed King didn't cover all bases when trying to outwit Ashley, but if the reports are true about Ashley acting like an intimidating despot by threatening anyone who would stand in his way, I'm not sure how King would have been able to counter that.

 

At no point since Green&Co got exclusivity on the 13th of May 2012 have I felt it likely that their ongoing and fluid plan would be derailed.

 

Now that Ashely is laying down the law and in a position of strength, that feeling is multiplied by a large number.

 

Sharper, clever strategists, more focused, more organised, more united etc.
