Hopr to see you in the championship in a couple of seasons. Fingers crossed

All six of them?? 

Sorry... just trying to win some Kudos on here, fed up with sticking up for you lot, now you might actually become a club that is worthy of the Bristol tag, and possibly our sibling rivals, so no more Mr Nice Guy :thumbsup:

Was it me or did Morecambe wear a kit that very closely resembled the original Black Arabs FC kit yesterday?!

Some sort of ridiculous tribute I'd like to think!

Preferred it when Mansfield relegated them wearing a gas kit!

You not bothered that they are not football people? Higgs was pretty clueless but no doubt he cared about the club.

Shouldn't read too much into this take over, hasn't made the football headlines really, and don't forget Bankers are not renowned for throwing money around are they? Seems like it's more of a case of something to 'boast' about to his Dinner Guests, but then it all falls apart when he has to repeat Bristol Rovers, and explain they are not actually Premier League, or even Championship, or a league below that, but the next one down. :facepalm:

So a Chelsea fan with an unknown amount of money who wanted to buy Gillingham ends up buying Rovers and they are over the moon.

That's like me going to the pub with fifty quid in my pocket and going home almost immediately by way of the offy to pick up a can of warm Fosters.

And another thing!

I have a small number of shares in various different banks and financial institutions. This makes me a minority share holder.

Thanks to 'Gas Logic and Accountancy' I wake up this morning and I'm suddenly a multi billionaire! 

God bless the assets under management at companies various. I didn't realise until earlier that the monies these companies control was actually all mine.

There is something very odd about the Sag takeover.  It's not as if the UWE was an initial draw for the takeover - Sainsbury's and the legal case have made that a coin flip - so he hasn't come for that.  His team have already said that he had looked at other league 1/2 teams.  This process must have been very recent - 6 months ago the Sags were non league.  So why the Sags, why now?

Its very strange.  Although I do think Piggs has played a blinder.

Isn't this guy something to do with FIFA?

He is amember of the Jordanian FA and a Fifa delegate and got interested in football when he was taken to a Chelsea game when they were really shit.

What makes a football person anyway? NH was a fan but...

I personally think this could go either way for the g*s. 

What happens with them doesn't really bother me either. What did bother me yesterday though was the brain dead dullard that kept using the take over of the g*s as an excuse to shout/sing racist slurs about it all afternoon. I've met some thick people in my time but you sir were right up there with the thickest. Very very poorly educated man.

Have you not heard the family worth 100 billion. Richer than the richest man on earth. 

http://gaschat.co.uk/thread/5999/sorry-on-bonfire?page=3

Wait until the clowns realise this guy is worth £20 million and the family around £130million, more likely to feature on the Fraud list than the Forbes rich list. :clapping:

It's impressive that some Larry from Horfield can find out but Forbes are totally unaware.

Surely the 3rd richest family in the world would feature in the world's richest families list. Can't seem to find them.

crazy how all the gas scum have just accepted this bizarre rumour that the family have catapulted them into the top 6 richest clubs in the country.  There is no evidence of any such wealth but the media have also just accepted this. If they are that rich why would they want to buy gillingham or rovers?! None of this makes any sense

It's a very odd buy, very odd. My thinking is basically something like they have false expectations buy a club like that lot cheap, get them into the PL gravy train and sell on at profit...

lots of figures thrown around. Does anyone know the actual net worth?

 

A lot of the Blue Few are confusing the capitalisation of the banks which the al-Qadi's are part (note that word) owners of, with the worth of the family as a whole.  As we know, banks' money belongs to investors and savers not the business per se and is capitalised at typically 20x the value of deposits. 

I'm sure they are wealthy enough to write off the Gas debts, underwrite continuing losses and possibly build the UWE bowl with no sale required.  They will want a return eventually however. They are not in the "throwing money continuously at a club" league.

Were I a [shudder to think] R****s fan, I would be worrying about when that payback will be required.

Do you think they`re really interested in shattering the illusion that they`ve helped to create since Friday though. An awful lot of media `personalities` will look pretty stupid when the actual figures do come out.

It's absolutely outrageous... They seem blind to all the facts and continue to bang on about how ridiculously rich they now are...

 I can't quite get my head around the whole deal and something just doesn't seem right, why would anyone buy Rovers When there's a plethora of better clubs to chose from at that level?

 It's gonna go tits up I'm sure if it!!!

 Worse case scenario they own the mem and a football team to manage, best case, they get a nice new stadium, with multiple income options in a great location with a big and growing catchment area. So it was probably a good deal... i'd have done it myself if that scratch card this morning would had been more than £5

A lot of us are being more realistic as to the family's wealth.

Yeah, they are not billionaires, but they've got a bob or two. I'm still a bit uneasy about all this, but at least the guy is not talking about premiership in x years etc etc, so will keep my fingers crossed that his lack of wealth means that he will cut his cloth accordingly with regards to the way the club is run.

I'm more concerned about the Chairman's history tbh.

If Rovers owners are worth 1.8 billion and more why don't they just get on and build the UWE stadium, nothing is stopping them. The legal case with sainsbury is about the sell of the Mem not the build at UWE.  The mem is still an asset and could be sold for development at any time in the future.

Yet they are still waiting on the outcome of the High court case. Again these facts seem to be ignore by the gas heads who are at the momment are all in some sort of collective hystria and have lost all control of rational thinking. But then again they have always been a bunch of deluded pr1cks.

They've gone with billionaire (probably because some G*s on their forum said it's true. 

He also apparently said he was now 100% with Bristol Rovers. But he couldn't wait to get along to Stamford Bridge.

Well I certainly know that if I was one of the richest men in the world with over a hundred billion then my biggest dream would be to become the owner of Bristol Rovers FC.

Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Richard Branson will be crying themselves to sleep for weeks having been beaten to this glittering golden prize.
