If we were going to build a stadium appropriate for this current team, it would be in the shape of a toilet block!

Sources close to the Chicago-based investment firm insist their commitment to the Lilywhites is strong.

That commitment to the Dundalk cause is not understood to be reduced after Peak6 were confirmed as a strategic partner to Wolves yesterday.
Article short on detail.

JR on podcast said takeover talks are still rumoured to be ongoing.

With no European money incoming, we will see how serious Peak6 are or who really has the money and willpower to come in and put their money where their mouths are. Surely the journalists in the know will be firing names into the public domain very soon.

We have no assets and no European football. Peak6 should be happy if anybody took the club free of charge.

Thats not how Americans work ..... they will want a return on their investment. They will claim the YDC/fitness suite, the done up bars and the puddle have to be paid for at top dollar as they are the assets they put money into.

Let's exchange the billionaires ( who brought us a double / group stages / FAi cup under their ownership ) for lots of voices with differing philosophies who've cobbled together the cash .

What could possibly go wrong

If they wanted a return they probably shouldn't have put a pensioner with no experience of football in charge of a football club.

Brought us?? Brought us?? What did they do to bring us there. We were the top club in the league and set up to dominate for years, the only thing they've brought us is into a relegation battle and possible oblivion.
