Today’s The People newspaper is reporting some interesting snippets on the go-slow takeover of the club. First up cockney chancer Derek Llambias is quipped as saying that ‘nobody had met Ashley’s £100m asking price.’ This goes directly against the ‘more than two clubs’ who had allegedly already met that number.

We all knew that Llabia was talking sh*t. ‘More than two’? Why not just say three, four, whatever? Also, given the previous nature of Ashley’s first person to meet the bid gets the club earlier mantra, why is he being so fussy now? Wa**ers.

The paper also runs with the fact Keith Harris, the man trying to broker the sale, has gone on his factory fortnight making it very unlikely anything will happen before the new season kicks off. Well done all involved, really sterling work.
