I wouldn't pay too much attention to the papers at the moment. They don't have much to report about signings right now as nothing much is going on as we get to the business end of the season so they have to make do with what little information they get which is usually incorrect.

Let's hope that's the case with CC the rumours are already trying to unsettle our promotion push with his desire to go to a premier side if we miss out on promotion this season!hope he puts us in the picture cause we need him to stay. This season has been a fantastic experience for the owls fans and the team,UTO

No big loss really!! Manderic stil doing what he's always done for us n we started so well so we only looking forward an upwards . gray is a master and we will do well . WAWAW

2.) Not overly concerned by this news. Let's be honest, the writing had been on the wall for a while and after all, who's to say financial investment would have improved the team?! You can't buy spirit and commitment which we seem to have in spades at the moment. It's great to see 11 playing their hearts out for us and the jersey. In SG & MM we trust. Onwards and upwards! WTID

No big loss.we're doing great without him!! can't wait to see what the Mighty Gray can get out of the latest signings. We don't need old money-bags to get promoted to the top flight!! UTO!!

Well Ed? I can remember you having a real go at a certain "Revowl" on here a few months ago when he first informed us that the buyout of our club wasn't going to happen. He stated it clearly and you along with lots more not only wouldn't take what he was telling everyone as true but you even tried suggesting that it's normal for takeovers to go on and on and on and even compared it to the Man City takeover. Come on Ed be a man, if you've got the nerve to print this message surely you've got the nerve to put your hands up and admit that Revowl was 100% right from day one and you along with lots more were 100% wrong. Revowl also warned us of Milans feel good rumors so I expect him to come out with another one very soon just to lift our spirits again. Milan needs to know that our spirits are already on a high at the moment with the team playing as well as they are and the results that we are getting without him chucking one of his rumors in just to let us down again. Here's to Revowl and his true facts. Keep them coming and keep us in the know.

{Ed003's Note - Don't know which Ed you are talking to but take overs can and do take a long time but obviously anything can change during that period -looking back at your previous posts you seem to have a confrontational attitude towards the Ed's if you don't like us dealing with posts don't bother posting if all you want is a row and a childish 'told you so' attitude Strad - that's all I can help you with sorry.}

5.) 100% agree what has been achieved this season and staying in the league last season is down to SG. Yes there is no doubt Mandaric buying the club debt for £1 and striking a deal to pay £8m to clear the £30m debt was a stroke of business excellence. Now take the rose tinted glasses off and look at the investment in the palying staff. Signinging of Antonio being the only one of note and ofcourse May recently have come out of the clubs running money (revenue) the transfer kitty has been none exitant the wage bill is slashed recruits on free transfers (enabling us to pay additionak £1k per week on wages on them) we got rid of 14 players at the end of last season and the start of this recruited 3 not including the babies. He has invested nothing filled us with what we wanted to hear initially then went into hiding. He is a brilliant businessman and an excellent Bull****r.

I must be seeing a different football club to you guys. I see a club in a good financial position (compared to most championship clubs), a squad of players with a bit of heart, no overpaid deadwood, and a potentially good youth squad. You don't have to spend big to achieve in this league, keep wages low and don't get carried away by overpaying for players and we'll be great. Remember Rome wasn't built in a day, slow and steady wins the race

7.) I agree CasOwl, I don't understand how some people think. MM has bought the club, with a view to making a profit but has put us in a better position on and off the pitch. There were plenty of people looking at the club in 2010 but nobody had the money and / or balls to actually buy us other than him. MM isn't a Wednesday fan so this ridiculous notion that he is going to blindly pump all his money into the club to make us successful is naïve to put it politely. I will start having a go at MM the day that I personally pump more money into the club than him. And the notion that there is a queue of Billionaires out there waiting to buy us is also stupid. MM has done wonders for this club on limited resources. We are in the best position we have been in for 15 years. Some people live in cloud cuckoo land. With regard Mammadov - he looked a god bet at one point but it now turns out he isn't. That isn't MM's fault but we have been lucky and dodged a bullet there. Could be much worse he could have sold us to the guy at dirty Leeds.

8.) Radon. I agree with everything you say excepy for the part about MM not being a Wednesday fan. He wasn't at the time of purchase but has, in his own words, developed a great love for the club. In MM we trust! UTO!

9.) I said all along takeover wouldn't happen but we didn't need people like that mm will get it right no doubt about that and some great signings now and possibly more in loan window to come keep the faith

10.) 05 Sep 2014 14:40:45
Exactly radon, in full agreement. This notion that we can instantly buy our way into the prem is only feasible with billionaires. For the rest of us it takes time to build a squad of players capable of not only getting up but staying up. The reason we have released all of those players is that they weren't good enough and the few we have brought in are. With business like this you can build a very good squad over 2-3 years. Trying to do it overnight will lead us back to where we've been before, financial trouble. I'd rather mm not sell until he finds the right guy, have a lot of friends who support Leeds and trust me they envy us at the minute

11.) Well said CasOwl & Radon!
I could add a lengthy tome in support of what MM has done for the club in the last 4yrs.
I will simply point out the obvious:-
He is not a fan as we are, he is purely an investor, a businessman.
But despite that, compare both our on-field and off-field situation NOW to what it was THEN, and I suggest it is impossible and ridiculous to even try to criticise MM.

12.) 05 Sep 2014 16:54:36
Got to say Milan Mandaric has had his pants totally pulled down by Mammadov
Maybe £40million blinded his judgement

13.) Takeover no takeover not realy fussed all I see is a club that is financialy solid, a manager who knows what he's doing for once, and a squad that goes out and gives their all on the pitch, if it carries on like that I will be a happy OWL

14.) Nice to see (in the majority of posts) common sense being applied! Does anyone think the takeover falling through may actually be a massive positive? The current squad can now buckle down and play without fear of their places being undermined. We can draw comparison with a team that got promoted last season - Burnley! Were they the 2nd best team in the league? - Probably not - Did they have the biggest/most expensive squad? - Definitely not! How was their success achieved? - Good coaching, strong team spirit & work ethic, 2 strikers who combined for over 40 goals between them, excellent backing from their fans & a little bit of luck with injuries etc. Well we have a fantastic coach, we have 2 strikers who seem to be gelling into a potent force and a good team ethos right through the side. Needless to say, the Wednesday massive will always turn out in numbers. The only thing we can't control is the luck element but I'm pretty confident, given our fair share, we can make the playoffs this season. WTID

15.) Its good to see that the silent majority are getting louder than the noisy minority. When MM finally leaves us he will have put at least 4 years into the club and be well into his 70's. He deserves to make a profit when he leaves. Every businessman has an exit strategy when buying into a business. His money, negotiating skills and experience undoubtedly stopped us from going into administration. If you remember we were at the High Court to be wound up before MM negotiated a way out. This would have meant not only losing points but more importantly losing our 1867 status, which I am extremely proud of. The only discussions about MM should be where we are going to put his statue when he has gone! We should also remember the a part played in this by Howard Wilkinson, and also Lee Strafford. People have such short memories i'm surprised they remember their login names.

16.) 07 Sep 2014 12:19:30
Eloquent Radon and CasOwl, it's the only word, pure eloquence. Yes, Suttonowl, here's one who thinks the collapse of the takeover might be more a case of a lucky escape. I've talked on here before about basket case owners and I've thought for some time that our club was going to be added to the existing pool of them in the Premier League and the Championship. Let's hope when the next taker comes along that Milan's antennae are just a bit more finely tuned. Having said that how much do we owe to that guy, it's beyond measure.

17.) How did cellino take over leeds and hm fail with us to prove is funds are sufficient. ? not a complaint just a general query! uto xxx

18.) 08 Sep 2014 16:02:13
Maybe he failed to show where the source of his money came from, or maybe he could not find the shed which had the shed loads of money in it. It was stated on this site by knowledgeable individuals that the money would be down with a third party, so take your pick.
Either way, MM finally got it.
I mentioned three weeks ago this gives us a fantastic publicity opportunity to attract the right sort of individual the club deserves, together with a fantastic history, and fans.
A golden opportunity hopefully for home grown talent to buy, not rent a team individuals as we currently have in the UK, with rent a team supporters. I do of course exclude MM from my thoughts regarding foreign owners.

19.) 10 Sep 2014 11:30:10
Corleone of the Caspian, Land of Backfire would be more appropriate.
No wonder he kept quite throughout.
The shyster has not paid for the shirt deal,and we are in too deep to change anything
Shed loads of money, dream on.
Serious cash flow problems spot on.

20.) 10 Sep 2014 14:14:24
I'm more than happy for any individual or group to takeover, provided they have both the clubs interests at heart AND a large available capital fund to invest. The talk of home grown investment worries me because all the clubs who have had sizeable cash injections have foreign owners! There seems no UK investment out there that compete with the likes of the Arabs/East Europeans etc.
As for the shirts, we should due for the money and simply remove the logo until we get it. reprinting shirts for the team won't be hard or expensive

21.) 11 Sep 2014 18:15:28
No takeover talk let's concentrate on saturday put maguire on bench play hallam hope maguire not playing well and hope looked lively when he came on against forest even though it was not for long looked sharp

Just remember no-one had heard of Slavisa Jokanovic before he joined Watford and look where they are now! Just because he is unheard of doesn't mean he will fail. The element of surprise is always the best.

All we need to do as owls fans is support the team as we always do.

TBH I'd take Darren bent all day long, yes he can be lazy but has the potential to score for fun at this level so I'd take a punt on securing a season long loan for him.
