I'm somewhere in the middle. He comes across as a nice bloke and he's a decent journalist, then the odd little snipes like at the end of that tweet make him look unprofessional and like a jilted ex-lover.

I'm a bit on the fence with Sam. Thought he did a cracking job covering STFC during a mad time, but as others have said the kind of 'bitterness' he has is a little bit tedious. I guess I can understand why though.

He came accross very well in his LS podcast and I have actually met him a few times, many years ago, and he was very pleasant.

What happened to Tom Bassam? He was a Junior Reporter for the Adver, I believe around the time Morehead & Warren decided to ship out and set up Total. Kind of left him up shit creek really, in some sense. Especially during that time.

Of course we had Andrew Steele-Davis too who I met a couple of times, a while back and he came across as a mostly impartial and decent guy. No wonder he got the press job at Town. Isn't he trying to make it in sports journalism in the States? We were very spoilt at the time for the number of local media outlets reporting on Town.

On another note, I have submitted a bid to buy the club. The proviso requires Jamie Cureton being sold for £500k, David Kerslake buying into my business idea, and Deborah Meaden lending me £2.5m for a 95% stake. Oh and there will be two Wonga loans of a combined £4m taken out against the club and the 50% ground. Lee Power has not yet picked up my 88th voicemail message (in the space of three weeks) but I'm confident he'll accept the total offer of tuppence'apenee!

ASD is a lovely lad. He has apparently given up on football completely to try and crack a market that is already highly oversaturated in covering US sports. Good luck to him I say, bold move - but so far reading his stuff reads like an American writing about soccer.

I know he's a big Ice Hockey fan but totally agree, bold move - I hope he carves out a decent career over there/here.

Interestingly I got talking to a MiLB (Minor League Baseball) commentator/reporter recently, who gave me an insight to that localised scene, as well as what a MiLB commentator does in the off season.

The only info about the guy is he used to work for a real estate company called the Abbey Group in the state's. Doesn't seem any link to any sporting development or such like just residential and commercial properties so on the face of it is the exact type of person we wouldn't want anywhere near the club.

He doesn't seem part of them any more, removed from their website and everything.

He created 2 other company's at the same time 'AC merger inc' and 'Able company corp'. Still all feels dodgy as fuck and wonder where exactly he's even come across STFC.

Seconded, hes also a really nice bloke who asks questions the BBC only skirt around, and trust me, he has every reason to dislike Power but rarely actually says anything in public, unlike Kostiuk.

I’ve always wondered how clubs get the word out that they are up for sale - or looking for outside investment - without appearing to be a desperate plea for a sale.

This has only come up since the CG sale has been agreed. There are enough UK chancers without worrying about unknown foreign buyers. If this bid is actually a real one, I presume they’ve offered Power £7m plus he also gets his sell on fee from Bogle.

It doesn’t smell good, for sure.

‘I’ve always wondered how clubs get the word out that they are up for sale - or looking for outside investment - without appearing to be a desperate plea for a sale.’

1) Everyone knows someone who knows someone.
2) Every industry has its inside ‘experts’ including football and commercial building developers.
3) Within these sectors there are researchers to scour media, planning applications land transactions etc.
4) Where there is muck there is brass, equally where there is brass there are connections.
5) Clem? See No.1

I’m confident that those amongst us know a few other relevant sayings that could be added.
