Re: Our time in Premier is over

Isn’t that the point Paul? They have used the clubs reserve as a down payment and put the debt in the clubs name. I guess we will find out when the news of the deal eventually breaks.

Re: Our time in Premier is over

Isn’t the debt in the clubs name not ALKs? If that is the case they don’t have to pay it back, the club does. How can ALK have acquired a £170m asset without putting any money of their own in and without borrowing any? They've either borrowed it from the club, which is what the reports seem to sugg...

Re: Our time in Premier is over

I wouldn't be surprised if ALK sold Mcneil, Pope, Cornet, Collins, Wood, paid off the MSD loan. Sell the club back to Garlick for £30m, that's a nice £10m profit each (I think there's 3 of them, right?), who doesn't love RISK FREE money, you cannot lose. How are they going to pay back the £100m or ...

To clarify a couple of points, the e-mail is from BFC Holdings Ltd, who own Burnley Football Club. Sorry if my OP was ambiguous.
But is it BFC Holdings that are buying the shares or ALK?

Re: Shareholders' letter

If, as I think is the case, the shares are in Burnley FC Holdings, with 122,000 shares in issue, this offer would value the club at around £208m.
