I had a very enjoyable drink with Matt the Shrimp in one of Greenwich's finer watering holes last night, at which many subjects were discussed - players, Tilly, hopes for this season etc.

The one subject which raised the most passions was the one regarding ownership of the club - specifically the Delancey shareholding which we are led to believe Ron has made a bid for.

Now, looking at the thread on the Fossets Farm board (and note this isnt a pure Fossetts Farm thread, hence its appearance here on the SUFC board), Napster mentioned Ron and Delancey had reached something of an impasse.

Does anyone know what the current state of play is? Matt and I never quite reached agreement on what Ron was trying to buy exactly (although looking at the previous thread it appears to be SEL - including Roots Hall Ltd which holds the clubs assets - rather than just SUFC) and how much he would need to pay.

One interesting development is Ron's rise to the official status of Chairman - clearly Delancy didn't have an objection to that any more, so is Ron winning the battle of wills?

Can we possibly hope for a breakthrough soon?

I feel that unless and until Ron can come to an agreement that will finally remove the po-faced cretin Wagman and his flying monkeys from the scene, our club is doomed to tread water at Roots Hall....
