Re: Matty Cash

I work with a Forest STH who rates Cash very highly. Not saying there’s anything in it at all as I don’t know, but I always find these things a little more believable when they break at the selling clubs end, and this has done. Forest fans believe we offered £15m and they want 20. It sounds nothing...

What's telling is you only 'suspect' I am wrong.

In fact I'll correct myself, it won't be 0, it will be -3 (which is what it is now).

I have no reason to disbelieve you/this but why would Dyche be so critical of the board if he thought new owners were coming in. Perhaps it is an attempt by Dyche to put pressure on Mike Garlick to accept a takeover so have to get a bigger transfer kitty, and to get the fans on side for a new owner?
