    In all my years I haven’t seen the club I have followed all my life in such a state. It’s disappointing that despite the takeover supposedly close to being concluded that the club seems to be lacking any forward thinking. There’s rumours that Hardy has issues now keeping Ilkeston Town a float. What happened to this nonsense about the club making plans despite the takeover not being completed? If the South Africans are interested, at this stage Hardy needs to make sure he’s doing all he can to get it a cross the line. The squad should be progressing, fans wanting to put the terrible previous season behind them. The circus continues and if I had the chance to give any one at the club a piece of my mind I would.

    It reads like school yard gossip, no evidence and the story is patchy. Where are the questions? Ask the company for a statement. Chase and develop the story.

    Is it something to do with the Waterside development or is it the amount of debts? It's been over 2 months now since Hardy accepted an offer? I accept things take time but this has gone on too long now What do we think? Debts? Riverside development area? Anything else?

    It seems Alan Hardy has been showing a new consortium around, this time a Danish one associated with the company Football Radar. https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/football/football-news/new-consortium-show-interest-notts-3001953 I know, I know, you're all tired of this... but surely it's a promising sign that other groups are interested, we have names and they appear to be real. And anyone is better than the property developers.

    No idea, some people come and go when they have what they want. Only returning when something else is needed. Others get busy, some lose interest. I think it’s a shame, the racism discussion and the article Loz wrote was good. Maybe life and the SLO role has got in the way?

    Posted in the wrong topic. I think they hype it too much, I find it dull and I can’t wait for more than 10 minutes.

    I was looking forward to putting last season behind us and rebuilding for the fightback, or at least putting some of the foundations in place. We should have been rolling our sleeves up and relishing the new challenge, hoping that instead of the oblivion we all fear, this season will mark the rebirth of our club. And of course we should have been looking forward to watching a hungrier team that's proud to wear the shirt. Instead it's been complete paralysis and we're all fearing the worst. Even if Neal Ardley has been given a budget, no player in their right mind would join us with the threat of administration looming large. Would you join a company that might not be able to pay you? It's easy to blame Alan Hardy for the stalled takeover talks, but in reality it takes two to tango. He can only sell if there's someone willing and able to buy. Smurthwaite is a clown, the property developers are crooks and we know nothing about the South Africans. All we can do is hope that something is announced soon, and that we've got a few new signings ready to go. Otherwise administration and almost certain relegation beckons.
