I hear that the discussions have hit a roadblock and it's 50/50 whether it will happen. Seems the potential buyers didn't like what they saw when they had a detailed look at the books.

Surely as business people that's the first thing you would do,check income expenditure etc if you were interested in a takeover.I don't know any details of what's happening but to me it's taking far to long to strike a deal.Maybe at this stage we should just move on ,a statement of some description would help.

Agree. It's distracting the club from preparations for next year. Pre season starts in a couple of weeks and it's not helpful to have all this uncertainty.

With or without them , the future looks bright , with a very solid looking squad and a brilliant manager , not forgeting the great support , which of course would greatly increase if you had a modern stadium .

I'd say it's more to do with the lease agreement and the Casey family involvement. They obviously want FULL ownership if they are ever going to redevelop. If this is the stumbling block and is more than likely it is as opposed to "the books" then I wouldn't be confident of a deal being done.

No they weren't. A cautious welcome is hardly a glowing
recommendation.

Cautious welcome is the sensible approach for us all, assuming it's happening.

They're here to make money, end of.
We can't grow as a football club without significant investment.

It really is that straightforward. So, as a fanbase, we need to know what we're prepared to do if it doesn't work and they walk.

P.S. you won't get any statements until it's all sealed (or it has all collapsed). Stock market rules. ITK spoofers are a pain in the hole.

Peak6 is a private company (actually a limited partnership) and are not quoted and dundalk fc are not quoted either. There are no stock market rules that apply.
The takeover could take place on the back of a beer mat if agreeable to all parties

I still wouldn't hold my breath on a statement from the club with an update. Basic common sense, as always, that when things are confirmed either way there'll be a statement or when there's confirmed news or an update it'll be told. Neither the club or Peak 6 are beholden to give every post, comment, tweet or question around town a reply and are entitled to do their business in private, as much as they possibly can. Either way it's business as usual for SK and the club over the off season. When there's news they'll announce it.

Any sign of an announcement from Club on all this takeover talk , would have a big influence on Season Ticket Sales.

I suspect that the effect on ST sales will be neglible whether or not there is a takeover.
Ezeikial posts personal opinions and observations from this supporters perspective.

Club had a grant request rejected for an invalid application under the regional grants for sticking in the Health and Fitness area in the YDC presumably, was paid for out of the clubs coffers then as it's been mentioned a few times over the last month or two that it was getting done.

Only other LOI related stuff in it DCC getting 65k for Dalyer redevelopment and the FAI 56k for Ferrycarraig for the Youths

Still no word on what is happening about upgrading Oriel Park.
