Surely this can't be true? Parky said no-one is interested in investing clubs other than those at the top end?

Uh finally some good news amid the doom and gloom that has been circling the club recently.

Nobody knows any specifics, which is to be expected, but the news has brightened up a few people's day today I think. Not getting ahead of ourselves though, it may all come to nothing, but at least it is something.

Rovers' Chief Exec Mike Smith has just been on the Radio Blunderside sports bulletin saying it isn't a takeover bid. Listening to what he had to say, it sounds like fairly low level investment.

Ken Bates said something similar last May and up to now no takeover and no investment.Hope you are patient
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.
The hour is getting late
FROM 2004,TO DO WHAT THIS CLUB HAS DONE,IF THATS NOT GREATNESSTHEN i DONT KNOW WHAT IS.

They are they have one of the biggest fans bases in the country and a recognised brand. Even if your not winning it doesn't mean you're not a big club, Liverpool are a bigger club than Chelsea despite having won much less.
