Negotiations via Twitter? Rarely a good move (unless they're looking to rebrand as TrumpSTFC)

I'm assuming they've exhausted the traditional route. And it is a big assumption, but given I think that
       "... open, honest and productive discourse with @Official_STFC / Lee Power"

to me seems as likely as England winning the world cup 27-0 v Panama in the final, I reckon its a fair one.

Reasoning: If he's serious about buying it himself - he's not going to talk to anyone.
------------
Anywho, I got a bit fed up of waiting and put my monthly £10 into Netflix. Sorry Trust.

The Trust isn't just for Christmas. Or the attention deficient. It's about who's looking after your interest for the long-term. They can keep taking my subs.

You manage to read that or see it on line Reg?  It is impossible to read in my hard copy of the Adver.  White writing against the background of a pitch with flecks of white in it and a solid white half way line running through it.  Well done Adver!!

On-line Ronnie.  I parted ways with the hard copy some years ago.... probably when my mother passed, she'd keep the hard copies for me to read  Smiley

Thinking about that I even knew a few people who had moved abroad who'd get copies sent out to them in some far flung corner of the old empire.

A while back they advised to stop the monthly payments and save towards community shares.

When I lived in both Scotland and Luxembourg my dad would make sure my gran would keep the weekend advers for me to read to catch up with the football and speedway news when I would visit her when back in Swindon. Good memories.

The Adver site is dreadful. Constantly crashes about 2 to 3 minutes into whichever article I'm reading, regardless of which device I use!

To be fair to them (no really), I think that's just about every local rag web site, they are so clogged with superfluous bollocks they just won't load properly.

I remember as a child my Gran used to send a copy of the Gazette & Herald to Manitoba every week for one of the family.

If I recall correctly the husband used to work on the Canadian railways

As BO points out it's funny how these little rituals of life, seemingly quite trivial get phased out by the modern world. Does it make the world a better place  Hmmm
