For all the criticism on the pitch up until this summer it's hard to know ever of a time we've been stronger off of it.

Brilliant owners

Yeah but the Eisners are people who don’t care about the club aren’t they.

A very good long term move that will be of permanent benefit, well done.

@RayCampbellSays

They are getting there and with the other announcements the future is looking brighter. No doubt players will follow!! PUP!! But I'm sure there will be someone to put a dampener on this as some sort of step back.

Heard a rumour about this purchase, so what will it mean for the academy rating? Will they now push up to a tier 2 which surely is delivering one of their promises
