I'm not going to lie, despite trying not to get carried away it's a huge disappointment. Nothing to say she won't come aboard anyway, but personally I think that's a long shot. Good luck to whoever it is, as to be honest they will surely feel a bit undermined after the carry on of the past few days.

For some unknown reason my eyes were drawn to Mandy has had her big Knockers back.

 

I hope she can cope with the criticism

Undermined by whom?

 

There were a number of bids submitted, allegedly, but the decision about which one to favour would lie entirely with the administrator. Whether his choice would be acceptable to the RFL is another matter entirely.

What I mean is it’s hard to win the fans over now. Mr. Newbie comes in (if indeed it is someone who is new), and it’s hard to hit the ground running when the Doc and his wife played a very public game of “look at what you could have won”.

A new twist has emerged in the race to take control of the Bradford Bulls, with Mandy Koukash suggesting on social media that she has failed in her bid to assume control of the club.
http://www.totalrl.c...d-bradford-bid/

What does this line mean?

 

 The decision to opt against Mandy Koukash though, seems a particularly strange one.

 

Why is is strange? If she didn't bid enough, she didn't bid enough. I find the line a particularly strange one tbh.

Was it? I really did think you meant ponds.

 

Oh, and Dulls? RLFans is that-a-way -------------------------->

 

Have you looked on RL Fans lately,  The Hudd's and  Bulls board is full of what i would describe as Rabid children, All fighting to get one up on each other and following each post with a string of Laughing smileys as though that made them funny,  What a sorry bunch.

I know what you mean here, I think It's because of the amount of money MK has, I am feeling disappointed and I'm not a Bulls fan (as it were ).

 

It's probably unfair as well because whoever gets the club may ultimately be the better option in the long term. I noted the bit about possibly working with the new owner, I don't put much store in that myself, MK doesn't strike me as being a sharer.

 

Whoever the new owners are i wish them well and hope a priority is to get away from Odsal, Build steady , and with their fan base they can get back to where they want to be,  A stadium something like Warrington would be ideal.

don't suppose she can be convinced to buy the Broncos?

 

I'm being completely serious by the way. As a Broncos fan my judgement is probably a little clouded here (to say the least), but I would only be able to see this as an incredibly positive move for the game as a whole.

It would be nice if that came off.

I usually find the Bulls board to be a reasonable place. However, there are regular visitors from other clubs who make the place quite poisonous sometimes (and I'm sure this can be more than reciprocated, but I don't check). The VT is just crazy - it's like all the world's unstable people put together in a large, padded room.

If she's really serious about owning a Rugby League club, I wouldn't mind her taking over Broncos either.

Totally agree mate, there are one or two on the Giants board who try and give a fair post, But when they start with the cross board stuff, It's pure Dross.

 

Iv'e never posted on there but i do look from time to time, At the moment It's not worth the look.

As disappointed as Bullsfans are, if hers wasn't the best bid then surely it's a good thing? It means someone even better is coming which is great!

I was warey of her taking over for the long term. The fact that DrK had stated that she would be buying the club but not getting involved in running it, and her apparent lack if knowledge during tv interviews and DrK's comments on twitter that 'she shares his vision' seemed to me that it was all just a way of getting another guaranteed vote at meetings.

I have asked both the Dr and His wife directly on Twitter. Now Gus has gone, if we can convince Hughes to walk away, I'd take either of them or any of their relatives from anywhere in the world as owners.......I have had too much of a bloke flushing 2 million a year down the drain with no care if he gets it back or the damage he is doing......better to have investors who see the bigger picture.
