Anyone else fed up of reading the 'Administration' thread, when admin is - we hope - very much a last resort?  This story is going to run for quite some time, so maybe a thread with a more positive (and accurate) heading would be a better place to discuss.

Nice 1. I hope it's concluded sooner rather than later. Looks like a deal for new investment for Birmingham is dragging on and they may be forced to sell players.

My hope lays with a comment from pdc where he said he was excited by one. One that to be fair could buy a bigger club. Normally he says it how it is.

From what I can gather everything is actually looking very positive indeed.

Good shout Ardiles. To paraphrase the remarkable Mr Holt "There is no Administration".

Birmingham could be seen as a lesser attractive proposition

Considerably less. Hell of a lot of skeletons in that closet. We're clean and on the up.

My thinking was that Birmingham could be heading for relegation and therefore less valuable, where as we are in with chance of championship football so more likely to increase in value. This I hope will aid to things coming to a quicker conclusion.

Buuuut, do Birmingham own their ground? If some kind of debt restructuring could be done they'd surely have potential.

Hell of a restructure mind Smiley

How about sale of a succesful club with potential for further growth ?

But it is reportedly ex QPR chairman Paladini that is interested in Brum, if he cannot get a deal at Brum and wants to own a club then you wonder if he may be one of the ones interested.

I seem to remember that QPR fans didnt rate Paladini  - do we need to fear ?

Although this could be 2 + 2 = 5

We might not need to fear him looking at us, but if he does it would be sub-optimal as potential owners go, let's say.

I hope Ken Bates isnt interested in buying another football club - although he only buys clubs on the cheap so I expect we have nothing to fear there
