Is Aldo consortium attempting a bid
25 September, 2017 13:46
Apparently Aldo and McAteer have a group of wealthy business men looking at attempting a takeover, If true I wonder if this is behind everything and unsettling everyone.

There will never be a time when Liverpool fans don't talk about former Liverpool players being about to buy Tranmere. I've heard vast amounts of garbage over the years about what is happening at our club from people who know nothing about Tranmere but believe that being a Liverpool fan makes them superior.

Liverpool have lots of fans and even through a small proportion of them make up rubbish, that's a lot of people making up rubbish in the hope they are right and getting bragging rights. We are often going to come up as a topic they can pretend they know something about.

This might be true for all I know, but my Liverpool-supporting friends have known for 15 years which of their ex-players are about to buy the club.

Rumour or not, the bottom line is we need investment/money to help take us forward. As we're coming to realise, it's very difficult to get out of this league and just relying on us being "a big club that shouldn't be in this league" isn't going to win us promotion.

Realistically, now that we're getting the reality check that we rode our luck last season and this squad isn't good enough to win the league, the objective now is to stay in the league and at best attempt to try and get in the play offs.

New owners/investment for next season will hopefully enable us to build a squad capable of winning this league. But agree it just sounds like the usual rumour mill

If "it may be true for all I know" why the need for such a long rant? Yes it may be rubbish/ hearsay etc. but let's equally not diss it completely, as after all Salford City are looking better positioned going forward than we are at least in the short term and MP has stated publicly and in the filed accounts he is seeking investment in the club.

Neil Mellor? The last time I saw him was when we lost 3-2 at Accrington after being 2-1 up. We were on the half way line and he was behind us doing summaries and reports for one of the local radio stations.

Mini, I think we are promising acquisition at the right price and in the right place, we have potential to reach the Championship and stay their with money put in, we've a big ground and space to expand it on up to maybe 20-25k with a full rebuild. We are based on a good footballing corner of the World, Everton, Lpool, Manchester region sides, Pie in the sky at present but we can dream.

One arguable difference with this one, is that unlike Fowler and McManaman, Aldo and McAteer actually played for Tranmere, so perhaps, if this has any substance at all, they would wish to buy it with a slightly different outlook about it, because they had some level of emotional investiture in the club before.

Bearing in mind that it could be argued that sentiment rarely should get houseroom in business, so they would have to largely try not to let past connections, influence judgement too much.

One benefit of Palios from the word go, was his past connections and that sentiment alone, made him look like someone who was never going to make change by cleaving away aspects of the club until it was more of a shell.

Arguably people like the shady Club 9 or the Portuguese onlookers that never bought Swindon nearly 10 years ago, would have been such people who would have looked to profit on some of Tranmere's value, rather than building on it.

Tranmere might never have been the same, paying some local authority to use their stadium from funds obtained from a fat Portuguese bank balance, just so £3,000 a week players could succeed or fail in it's name.

Can't believe Aldridge would link himself with the club again. He never even mentions us apart from when FA Cups shocks come in to play and is clearly a lifelong Red.

As for McAteer, would we want him back anywhere near the place? I'm pretty sure any businessmen they're involved with would be the rest of their charity golf team for their latest day out.

Look at Bournemuff, Brighton, Swansea, Hull and in the championship Burton, Brentford all clubs who at some time in the recent past have been worst off than us in terms of finance, gates, league position, the difference, investment. Too right the Chinese connection is all about MP getting Chinese investment into the club, they are the only ones who will look at a 'small' club and realise the potential, the Europeans and Americans would not be interested in us. I doubt there are any Rovers fans out there with deep pockets, PJ being the last and look at the flak he got.
MP is developing the club into a saleable commodity, he would not be spending his time with the Chinese if he thought nothing would come of it, why do you think so much effort has gone into Solar Campus and the hospitality areas of the ground.
Footballers investing into clubs, don't make me laugh, they do not have the finance and investors are always looking to turn a profit.
Size of crowd in the modern game is no longer significant, its all about TV money and advertising, even for the big clubs they get more from shirt sponsorship than they do in gate receipts.
Most of the players know that come the end of this season they will be released as if they don't get us promoted this season clearly they need to be replaced, if we do get promoted most will not be good enough for league 2, look at FGR, bottom of the league.
I think as a team we have become too predictable, lack confidence, and the fear of losing is causing us to play far too defensively, Micky choses the team and the tactics but once the players cross the line its down to them to perform.
I'm convinced we will come good, disappointed that we are not running away with this league as I have not seen any team playing consistently well, the league is still there for the winning.
If what has been said is true and MP announces some investment, and we are talking a minimum £3m each season in this division, then all will turn out fine and we could still achieve the aim of championship football, and from there anything is possible.

Issue with investment is anyone looking at us right now will not see a potential investment return as we zip up the league's. They will probably see a bargain to be had and hope we don't get relegated and ruin their investment.
So unless the deal is on the table already I don't expect to hear anything soon, most likely end of the season when they will consider our value and potential

Tranmere69, in your post you mention making the club saleable commodity? (at least I think it was you rather than a quote from somebody else).

Did you mean saleable from the point of attracting investment and advertising or did you mean that the club could be smartened up so much as a business that somebody really would be interested in buying the club from MP/NP?
