Spotted this beauty elsewhere. Anyone know who…..and why?

One for my generation - my strange initial thought (don't ask me why) was Adam & the Ants and looking at the lyrics it seems particularly apt. Just a pity that nappies are not included 

Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

Prince Charming
Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards

Nah, that's the Muller road end isn't it plus Pat J had massive hands and wouldn't be seen dead wearing that crap, far too much taste! 

There’s a roof showing there, but it doesn’t look like the Tote End and the Muller Road End never had a roof did it?

That's all very interesting; forensic accounting required.

I will also do some digging when on a proper computer this evening.

The position of minority shareholders would be compromised if the ground had been simply hoiked out as opposed to sold at fair value (not carrying value) for starters.

My wife goes all "Columbo" when these sort of things are posted,  she keeps hitting dead ends though because of Dwane Sports being in Jersey, she can't see their figures, people of ultimate authority or any investor information. In addition it's difficult to trace if they have any other interests, which might be making money. As I said yesterday, I would think the family would be very upset if he allows their old mans money to just dwindle away, so it would be interesting to know if there are other investors or income. Obviously that's why they are based there, annoying though. :)

Shame you can't go back to 1998 when company was formed. The then chairman definitely said, something along the lines of, this is a great deal for Bristol Rovers. We've bought a 50% share in £6m worth of real estate. The deal was £2m for that share, surely under valued within the books. Closely followed by the other 50% for £10k when the other party surprisingly filed for bankruptcy within five months of that deal taking place and the ink still wet.

Definitely. Going. Up. 
 

Jesus Christ that bloke is ace. 

Admittedly Hartlepool were at home on Saturday, but didn't one of their few say that they "had done well keeping them down to 1 goal"? 

Well they must have worn them out judging by the stats from tonight's game.

That was based on their home form, which they neglected to mention was nearly all in non league.

Up the Sutton!
