    Thanks as always Bert. Losing £18m has got to hurt anyone's wallet. Given the family wealth is now only £66m, any significant investment in the Rovers represents a huge risk from the family. If WAQ is using his own share of the wealth, the risk is even greater. Looks like it'll be evolution not revolution for the foreseeable.

    It seems their much talked about stadium tour has had another addition. Following recent trips to the Not Yetihad and the No Camp, they appear to now be playing at the Sand Siro. Where will they be playing next?

    Could the extra £5m be secured against other property? I haven't had the chance to go through it all myself but wonder if the Colony has been used (although I originally thought Dwayne Sports purchased that not BRFC). If it is £15m against the Mem that looks absurd given Sainsbury's pulled out of their proposed £12m purchase because it was no longer affordable - not sure who could value that land with an extra 25% on top. Am I also right in thinking that the interest is being paid to the owners/Dwayne Sport so the owners are taking £0.3m out each year plus any salaries/dividends for directors/shareholders. I wonder if the £5m could be the approximate value of the funds they would have taken out of the club by the end of the next two years, in which case there isn't much of a risk: £5m in payments (over several years) and £10 secured on the Mem. Would appreciate your thoughts on the above as you clearly have a better grasp of this than I do.

    "He kept saying I'm a gas head I'd never do that." Danny Baker told us they were all liars so this shouldn't shock anyone.

    To commemorate this 5 year anniversary, the 'NotYetihad'* is to be renamed the 'No Camp' with immediate effect. *Credit to whichever OTIBer originally came up with that nickname in years gone by.

    So Cardiff away......

    Fans want the police to listen to their concerns but don't like it when they act on feedback and grown adults are 'creeped out' by a police officer posting helpful information on the forum and engaging with fans..! I think Julie does a good job of maintaining dialogue between fans and the authorities. I also do not think she makes the decisions she has to explain on her. Also whilst what she says may be able to be found elsewhere on the internet, it is often helpful for her to post that information directly where it is relevant to answer a point. This thread was about whether the Cardiff game would change, she explained that it had changed. Yes that information was available on the club website, BBC, Sky and other websites but it still answered someone's question who obviously wasn't aware. Julie does a good job and moaning to/about her isn't going to change the decisions made her bosses or the TV networks.

    Team for Wolves if Baker and Pato out

    An alternative, which I don't think LJ will use but could be worth considering is 3 5 2 as below to get our most experienced players on the pitch (apologies for weird formatting) Fielding Wright Flint Magnússon Brownhill Bryan Smith Pack Reid Taylor Woodrow

    Full Time SLO appointed (Merged)

    I am hot sure he needs to have experienced it himself to do the job well - no-one can understand all possible issues relating to the U-7 tickets and free shirts, disabled supporters, S82 displays, people queuing on stairs, issues with hospitality, alcohol pricing, all away grounds selling out of cider, tickets being put on sale when they shouldn't have been, Oxford United labels in away shirts etc. by having been affected by them all personally. He is a liaison not a superfan. His role is to communicate with and listen to the fans. We tell him our concerns and he tells us the club's response. He tells us the club's ideas, and we give him our response and so it goes on. He is a communicator and doesn't need to have experienced every issue himself. From what I've heard he seems a good fit and hopefully this will continue our progress on and off the pitch.

    Yes I think you're right, so a yellow against Villa means he can rest up during our two cup games against Watford and Man City to come back in the league. Probably too hard to predict these things though.

    The cynic in me says he will play against Wolves and then if he avoids a booking he will definitely pick one up against Villa so he misses Watford and Man City away so he can come back fighting in the league and will play the home leg against Man City.

    As it is Christmas I'll give you another free piece of legal advice, but this is the last one. The better interpretation is "must have been aware or should have been aware of this mistake". Plus, it isn't enough to 'say' you didn't know, you actually have to have known. Don't perjure yourself over a ticket you knew was not genuinely for sale. All of us knew it was a mistake, if anyone genuinely didn't know, they should have known, especially as the club said it would announce details. The club is entitled to rescind the contract, please don't sue them for a ticket when, under the T&Cs of purchase, they can refuse to allow you entry for any reason whatsoever. But rest assured, the club is in a legally sound position, PR may be different but equally this is clearly a case of someone making the page 'live' before they meant to and who hasn't accidentally hit 'send' on an e-mail before they meant to? Case closed. Always look on the BrightCiderLife

    For those of you pretending to be legal experts, please explain how this doesn't fall squarely within the doctrine of unilateral mistake, thereby allowing the vendor (the Club) to rescind the contract (cancelling the contract and returning everyone to their original position)? Show's over folks. Genuine mistake, as everyone purchasing it knew, so the club can cancel the contract. Edit: @RumRed T&Cs do stand up in court and are legally valid - almost all of the leading cases in contract law turn on interpretation of T&Cs - Google "Lord Denning's big red hand" (aka Thornton v Shoe Lane Parking Ltd [1970] EWCA Civ 2) and the associated case law for an analysis as to when and how T&Cs can be incorporated into a contract under English law.

    As (one of) the forum's legal eagles, I can confirm Ivor Guy is not expressing an expert opinion and is in fact wrong.

    Have we had any confirmation about them being locked out from their own tinpot cinema?
