Time for Hardy to Start Answering Questions

Recommended Posts

https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/football/football-news/post-says-if-notts-county-3030913


I agree he needs to front up and face the music. Problem is, I don't think we're going to like the answers. 

These are the ten questions that Alan Hardy needs to answer now:

(1) When will staff and players be paid their June wages which they were due last Friday?

(2) In early March you said the sale of the club could be concluded within a month. In early June you said it was imminent. When will a sale be completed?

(3) Why are you still in talks with a consortium that includes a convicted fraudster Alex May?

(4) Who are the backers behind the South African consortium which you say wants to buy Notts County?

(5) Has there been any correspondence with the FA regarding either of these two groups?

(6) What guarantee can you give the 1,500-plus fans who have already bought season tickets for 2019-20 that they will not be left out of pocket?

(7) Will you be able to pay the minimum £250,000 tax bill which Notts County to the HMRC before the deadline of the court hearing of July 10

(8) Have you personally, or any company of which you are the sole director, been paid any money by the club in the past four weeks?

(9) If the club is unable to pay the debts it owes, is it currently trading whilst insolvent?

(10) If a sale of the club is not agreed within the next week, would you be willing to place Notts County into administration in order to save the club?

It's very rich of the Nottingham Post to start seeming like they're siding with us Notts fans, I'm not knocking Leigh - his hands are tied, but what annoys me is how far they're going now that the club and they (mostly Alan Hardy) are out of bed.

It's becoming a joke, it's things like this we should have seen much sooner.

What do people expect from Alan Hardy? He's gone quiet, avoiding answering and is even giving shady replies in my opinion to a concerned MP who he wouldn't sit with supporter groups. Why would he face the music now? The only question I want to know is what's the lowest he's willing to part for the club? The majority of fans hounded Ray Trew into wanting out, the fee reported wasn't what Hardy got the club for (if the figures are true) but he still seemed to overpay for it which is his fault. Considering all the debts left behind, I doubt he would sell unless he really wanted to cash out.

Notts shouldn't be sold for more than £4m, there's nothing in the club to deem it more than that.

I have heard he wants just over £5m now, which before the media and rumours speculated that he wanted £7.5m. Inflated, you can't expect to get back your money, especially if you're neglectful in spending it. This applies to Alan Hardy and Ray Trew, you don't buy a club to make a profit - it doesn't happen, but both insisted the club would be debt free when in fact it wasn't anywhere remotely near.

Half of the questions will be prevented from being discussed due to the signed papers.

Who are the backers behind the South African consortium which you say wants to buy Notts County?

This is a questions for the NEP to find out themselves.

Questions which any journalist or newspaper back in the day would have chased or seeked answers too, instead its putting up a click bait story filled with lazy journalism.

I am sick of all this bull$h**.

why dont they get the answers and then write about it?

its fine to say they need answering but writing about demanding questions is not going to help, besides with how the protest and general mood of the fans is it would make more sense to get the questions. i agree they need answering but why is it only certain supporters groups trying and of course the mp.

the media in nottinghamshire seems to be quite lazy.

I am sure a lot of fans will pick up on these questions and eventually demand the answers, easy work then for the Nottingham Post.

First question should be when will he pay the wages of the staff he owes, I don't think he would like to go without pay. Some staff have worked a lot harder than him, so he should cut them a break and sell the club to the highest bidder [unless that is the one involving Alex May].

It was time ages ago but tbh he has answered more then most owners have ever done, he has a habbit of saying the wrong things.

Hardy won’t answer this stuff, how quickly did he go on TV after tweeting his dick pic? Family club owner, exposing himself to fans but doesn’t have the balls to pay staff.

If anyone seriously believes Alan Hardy will answer those questions, they’re seriously deluded. All his statements these days are to the point and vague.

Its way overtime but hes being secretive for a reason, his version of publicity isnt really what we want to see either.

Agreed it’s time for this management speak from Alan and the I can’t because to stop and treat us like fans and tell us what’s going on .. cause it’s our season ticket and ticket sales etc that's paying for things.

I think I will have finished Uni before Alan Hardy answers any of these questions, The Nottingham Post should honestly put them forward. If he doesn't answer, then we know where they stand but I was lead to believe Hardy had a good relationship with Leigh Curtis so how could it be difficult to speak to him?

Can we have these questions answered please Nottingham Post? I thought you had an exclusive with Alan Hardy recently, so why didn't you put the questions across for the fans?
