'There can be no certainty that an offer will be forthcoming."

All we know is that Thomas is a 'respected' knee surgeon. Not a lot to go on. I trust that GT and the board will do their due diligence and not just sell to any crook, fraudster or idiot. Fingers crossed.

The only trouble with that statement is that out of the 2people named only one of them is actually a director/secretary of the newly formed company allegedly attempting to buy our club. Who is Bassini? Is he real or is it a sudo name?
