    Default Takeover...

    Not Vital, much more reliable, the Sun...

    NOTTINGHAM FOREST were last night on the brink of a dramatic takeover.

    A US/Chinese consortium fronted by an ex-England star is in advanced talks to buy the crisis club.

    Owner Nigel Doughty wants out after 12 years — with the managerless side 21st in the Championship — and a deal is said to be very close.

    The would-be buyers even have a top European coach already lined up to replace former England boss Steve McClaren, who resigned on Sunday after just 112 days at the helm.

    John Pemberton, Karl Robinson, Kevin MacDonald and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink are also in the frame for the manager's job.

    It emerged that Peter Ridsdale offered on Sunday to become the new chairman, though it is understood the former Leeds supremo's surprise offer will be rejected.

    Ridsdale is the kind of guy who fucks the corpse before calling the cops.

    chinese and US market wouldnt be a bad market to break into with our history, with the ffp around the corner it could very well give us the much needed extra revenue to advance.

    and ridsdale is indeed a fucking parasite as winnits has already said.

    ex england star pyscho maybe or maybe that parasite robson in which case he can fuck off

    Remember the Joe Kinnear American pre-season fiasco? Or the failed Chinese pre-season under Calderwood?

    They were all about "breaking new markets"...

    We've already got a US player, so we sign a Chinese lad and we're in. Probably.

    Steve McManaman has been putting together a consortium for a while. Not saying it him, but could be.
