Who says? The Glazer family are doing a fine job of paying off all their loans using Man Utd, for instance. Just because the club isn't making a profit, doesn't mean the Glazers aren't making money out of the club.

But still, you still haven't answered my question; I'll repeat it so you can see it again:- how does it differ for any other potential buyer?
The only buyer I want is someone who'll pour some of their money into the club not minding if they lose heavily. So they don't differ from many buyers.

So you want a sugar daddy, like Abramovich or Mansour? Who will probably get bored at some point and pull out...

I'm getting close to snapping at people for substituting 'poultry' for 'paltry'. It's a shite pun and I'm not sure some people realise the two words have different spellings... :x

Well the club was valued at £25m by the Walker trust, plus the £15m debt wiped....at least thats my understanding....leaving the odd £5m or so for transfers..

I shall hendeavour to improve my forum condcut in the future and hope not to eggsacerbate you any further with my puerile comments. Maybe we could learn to cooperate with one another on our views regarding puns and blackburn rovers.

Eh? The reports I've seen have said they're going to pay £46m to buy out the Trust and clear the club's debts. How have you interpreted that as them lumping £46m of debt onto the club? :-?

Wasn't aimed at you, but the 'poultry' one has been done to death already. And like I said, I think some people don't realise it's not how you spell 'paltry', and are including it in serious points. :-?

Brilliantly answered there LR. I like the way you studiously ignored his question and gave an answer to one that I can only assume came from somewhere in your head. :hyper:
