worth noting - there will be stuff from further back that we still need to dig out... and the amount of work that has gone into uncovering these facts and assumptions so far is much more than the work of a 'small minority of fans'.

this is the organised work of a dedicated fanbase who are very clear:

we were never for sale.

we are not for sale.

we'll protect our club in future as we have in the past.

Reading the latest trust news letter about Curran and Rose and their supposed 40% ownership...

If they have actually paid certain parties where is the proof!.
If the share transfer papers havent been handed to the club then surely Curran and Rose own sod all...

Do the trust and the board know who as agreed to sell and have they contacted these parties asking about if they did sell their percentage and recieved any monies.

We know the yanks bought from Dunphy not long ago...

My all time favourite Dale player Mr Lyndon Symmonds

this is where the complexity lies... technically we believe the sale has been completed financially (sellers have either received all the money, or some of it with some being sent from Gateleys after an agreed period of time), although the shares haven't transferred in the actual business.

so there are a lot of people working in the background to see where we go from here - we think the EFL would have to formally approve the share transfer before Dale signed anything or we could be in the deep doo doo... hopefully there is a way that the shares can be bought from #AndyCurran and #DarrellRose of #MortonHouse by the right people, and then there would be a legal way of the share transfer happening from original sellers to new buyers without Curran and Rose ever being formally listed within the club. the challenge is the price they paid - would they sell at a loss to try and show good faith, and then maybe recoup some money from Jarvis or the sellers if they had watertight get out clauses?..

knowing which authorities are looking into this, if we were the sellers we would be very wary of doing ANYTHING with that money until we knew exactly where it had come from... there have been plenty of references to the proceeds of crime act and also source of funding (this is what the SRA are looking into Gateleys for allegedly).

the Trust would be better placed to answer the final question... we would be amazed if they haven't contacted the sellers - if the sellers replied or engaged at all is another question entirely. if they were real fans of the club, or proud of family legacies, you would expect they would at least have the courtesy to reply.

I would suggest that the events of the last three months demonstrate that the sellers of the shares fall into neither category.

although some still publicly claim to be (linkedin is a goldmine of bluff and bluster if you know where to look).

some of the stuff that has come to light about 3 of the sellers particularly is absolutely unbelievable... a lot of it not yet in the public domain. these things have a habit of coming out, though, and we wouldn't like to be in their shoes (professionally and/or privately) when they do.

I cannot wait for these charlatans to get their public shaming and complete humiliation. What they set out to do was wicked, greedy and selfish. The sooner it's out there, the safer this club will be.

It could/would have led to the ultimate demise of our club, but they probably knew that and still thought it was O.K. to go ahead.


B*starfds the lot of them.

Agreed

The yanks were never dale fans, the may have added ‘up the dale’ to their statements when they wanted to delude dale fans they had a genuine interest for the club. But we were nothing more to a means to their ends, and when they saw that couldn’t be achieved they decided to cut their losses regardless of the consequences.

Andrew kilpatrick wanted to play chairman but couldn’t be arsed to put the effort required or the finances when things got tight. He let bottemely have free reign and when personal circumstances got in the way he cut and run, taking the opportunity to make a profit in the process. Did he suspect what impact this would have on the club? Well if he did he probably didn’t give a shit. He took the post as custodian of the club and then neglected his duties…. Both in bottemleys reign and offloading his shares.

As for Rawlingson he probably allowed to be taken along with bottemley’s plan thinking he could get his place back. Was he nieve? well as supposedly a successful businessman then you would think he may have suspected the consequences. I think he just stuck two fingers up.

Then bottemley well his role has been well documented by others. His was a premeditated attack, brought on for self interests and nothing else. Vindictive, and bourne out of some twisted act of revenge. Whether he ultimately wanted the demise of the club, who knows….. he just saw it as collateral damage.
