of course it isn't, it can't be until the directors have passed the test.

HoneyRoastHoax of course it isn't, it can't be until the directors have passed the test.


The test is basically self-cert.

Any investor must pass the Football League's owners and directors' test, although Kieran Maguire, a football finance director at Liverpool University, says the test is unlikely to hold up the purchase of the club.

"The test doesn't do much good," he told BBC Sport. "It's more a case of being seen to be doing something by the Football League than actually doing something.

"It's a self-certification test, which is usually filled out by the club secretary, and most tests are passed with ease because of the legal issues with launching an objection.

"Outside parties, such as people who may have personal grudges against individuals, can object and the Football League will then investigate further but otherwise the test should pass through easily."


Article is pointing out to the Thai's being quite advanced but there are still other bidders.

I could really do with some takeover news today.

I also don't know why I have to check to separate threads on the same topic on different parts of the board. I need to keep checking Sanguiners' Moving On thread and I am too busy and too important for this.

I would rather go at myself with a butt plug than have Samuelson still involved.
