'I have purposely steered clear of posting anything on here whilst information was not in the public domain but, for those wanting an update (apologies for any repetition - ignore me if you know this already), there are definitely a number of parties interested in buying the club right now. LUST has spoken to a number of them and can confirm that at least one of these parties would definitely pass all the stated requirements that Ken Bates has made so public in the past (which is not to say that the others wouldn't). All parties that we have spoken to are genuinely interested in supporting the ideals of the LUST Vision statement.
LUST do not wish to jeopardise any potential bid which is the only reason we have had to remain so quiet and cryptic, we will not reveal the identity of any parties that we have spoken to until they give us the green light to do so. But, whatever happens be assured that the excuses that no one is interested, fans scare investors off, everyone runs away when asked to provide proof of funds are all now redundant excuses.
Personally I don't know what Bates does next but, I hope for once that he does ignore us, puts out a calming statement and completes a deal that suits all parties, then quietly slips off into the sunset... I think it would be idiotic to try and point score or throw away any deals because of anything we or the local media have said or done (and I don't think he is that much of a fool). "
