Not sure if tongue in cheek but the unit are a small local marketing group. They could maybe afford to take over a summer league team.

Fyffes sponsorship in terms of cash was very small and they are as tight as ducks arses with money in general. Hard to imagine they would fancy losing a million a year on a league of Ireland club

The Unit owns Mcalesters Bar, Irishify.com and Fansflare.com hardly a small local bunch, I for one would like to see the club back in local hands run by local people who care about the club.

The rumours are getting more unbelievable by the day. Has your account been hacked?

All these rumours floating round about Statsports. Does anyone know if talks have actually happened between peak6 & statsports or is it all just hearsay for now.

No idea, but personally I don’t think any one person or company will buy the club. Statsports don’t exist to own sports teams but maybe people in there are interested in being part of a takeover group as a side investment.

Paddy Casey himself has the lease on McAlester’s, the Unit don’t own it. Separate things.

So seems to be something in this. Rogers on his podcast ( in between telling us for the umpteenth time how far we’ve fallen under Peak6.. James we get it !! ) saying that Vinny’s 2 yr deal has stalled ( maybe temporarily) as there is an individual very interested in buying into the club/ taking it over .
There certainly seems to someone in OP giving this tweeter some inside info

Can only hope and pray that if there is a deal on the table that something can be agreed to move the club on. I want to never speak of the last two seasons ever again. I see Bill has been speaking to Rogers there again, sounding as off the wall as ever. Don't let the door hit ya on the way out.

That interview should finally pull the blinkers off the last few holdouts. Delusional doesn’t begin to describe it. We’re goosed while the Hulsizers are in charge.

Mike Treacy returning in these circumstances is pointless as he is working within the confines of offering 1 year deals to any players over 27.

Bill is a fool. I wouldn't be against a few stars n stripes being burned in Oriel on the 24th!

I'd be inclined to agree but only scapegoats fans further and you'd see an FAI fine for that one
