UK based and "consortium" 

Anyway it's Marc Warburton but the looks of it. 

Is he a rich man?

He alone may not be, but his backers must be otherwise why bother, anyway I heard it's backed by Fred Done and other businessmen.

So with a few quid coming in, which striker is available now after the window has shut?  If money was no object to saving the season, who could be bought?

[size=12]BOLTON. Hectic. Mark Warburton would be boss if his money men are getting it. Been trying for weeks. Perhaps a breakthrough. Always cautious with sales talk there all the same. Warburton previously a City trader. Must have mates [/size]

Bet I'm not.

Tbh, I would have thought you might have known a bit of what has been going on in the background - to be fair to you, you have been first with the news in the past.

Must be stuff going on that you have had no knowledge about then - like people doing due diligence and looking at the books - which isn't a five minute job and must have been going on for weeks.


Anyway, can Anderson actually sell the club if he has debt of £5 million outstanding against his shares?

I would have thought that lien needs to be removed first before any sale could go through.

I don't think the issue is insurmountable but clearly needs to be addressed first before anything else can happen.

The first sniff I got was about 5 minutes before the BEN put the story up. Makes me think this one is the real deal and your hero really has, for once, done what he promised.

It's inevitable Anderson goes sooner or later as he is taking us down the road to bankruptcy and his tenure is increasingly untenable, but I only hope the new owners are up to scratch. So what do we know about this consortium other than Mark Warburton's involvement? I know he has some serious money from his days as a trader - some estimates put it as high as a billion! -  and I presume he'd want to be manager but do we know anything about his backers?

One thing about Warburton. He might not have had the most illustrious managerial career but he is one of the most attack-minded managers in the game, so if he does take over and we go down we'll at least go down fighting. Shame it's too late to bring in players for this season.

TBH he did well at Brentford and Rangers - not so much at Forest - but still has a 55% overall win rate which is a damn sight higher than Parky's.

Misleading stat including Scottish football at 60+ % however i prey something happens, and an attacking manager i will never sleep.lets hope it comes off.

Looking at the reporting of this story, it seems the only original sources are Iles and Nixon and who's to say one isn't re-reporting the other as is commonplace in the media these days? Add to that the brinkmanship that is Anderson's trademark and it suggests there is plenty of opportunity for the deal to slip out of grasp.
If it does come to fruition there will be plenty of skepticism and the timing - days after the close of the transfer window - doesn't help, but from my view change, any change is not only inevitable but desirable.
But I won't be pinning my hopes on a revival of the club just yet - it's more a case of us having a chance to halt the decline brought about by the Anderson regime and that in itself would be an improvement.

Whatever happens has got to happen immediately. We are not likely to get more players in but a drastic change of tactics and attitude can bring us more points with the players we have IMO.

A bunch of quid  and a couple of those and we could conceivably stay up.

Even if the Warburton consortium take the deal, there is no guarantee that they'll invest big so at this stage everything is possible.
However if I was buying the club and staring the prospect of relegation (and thereby reduced income) in the face, I'd be already planning to put a few bob aside to try to ensure survival. It would be a gamble, but the investment would be paid off by the survival bonus and it would result in starting to rebuild from a stronger platform in the summer. 
Everything hangs on whether or not the deal goes through and what the ambitions of the buyers are.

I seem to remember when he left Forest there were rumours about problems with payments to his daughter who is a players agent.

I'm living in hope though that there is some good news on the horizon.
