Yes, good interview and shows some of the excellent community work going on. Proud to be part of it.

The only aspiration I don't see happening is Wirral Council taking a financial stake. They can't even afford enough teachers, social workers, librarians, or to keep the town centre attractive and vibrant. All due to continuous and savage budget cuts issued by a heartless Tory government whose families are not affected by such austerity.

No way do we want Wirral Councils grubby hands on our club keep them well away, they would sell the silver at a drop of a hat and build on the site.

25% share to the fan group yes but Council a big NO.

dont like the idea of becoming a development club.we should always remain a club in our own right and be looking to be in the top flight. I'd rather we didn't survive than be a puppet for a big club.

A nice piece reads to me as an advert that the club is for sale. Palios is clearly very shrewd indeed, the way in which the club is being run not only keeps it solvent but keeps debt to a minimum which hopefully won’t put potential buyers off, probably one of the reasons behind two year contracts as well. The club was in a dire state when he came on field, off field and in the media, betting scandals, relegation etc etc and then coupled with illness. He has done really very well to steady the ship and I wonder had he known what he was actually getting into would he have gone ahead and still done it, hopefully we get he win on Saturday because I think they deserve it more than anyone, it must have felt like a huge hole had just opened in front of them when we dropped out the league.

Correct me if I’m wrong but he has always said the club is for sale to the right peeps has he not, it was certainly mentioned in a radio interview.

Thats true, But probably only as far as the majority of clubs outside the premiership are.

Of course he would sell the club .but to THE-RIGHT -pERSON ,key words ,you don’t need an asset stripper coming in like that Vaughan guy who owned Chester ,wanted to sell PP and share with Chester ,the FL is full of clubs with dodgy owners ,dodgy as in not really interested in the club ,knows nothing about the history or what it means to the local people .MP also mentioned a possibility of a new dock land stadium sometime .which would mean selling PP to provide the money .l am sure it would be ,yes you can buy PP but give us the money first to build the new stadium before we move
As I have said before it’s all about foreign owners the days of local businessman bankrolling a club ,the likes of Bob Lord the carpet king at Burnley ,Jack Walker the steel man at Blackburn and the guy at Wolves (his name eludes me )are long gone .we are very lucky to have MP and Nicola .when you read that article and his ideas for the club through business .lucky indeed

It is sustainability that sits at the core and contrasts with the PJ period which was certainly the casino model.Throw money in and hope it pays off. It almost did but it was exactly at the peak of almost that PJ reigned in. He was good to the club but the absence of a business model led to exactly the decline that could have been terminal.
Frankly,I am not particularly bothered about premier league pipe dreams. If we are a well run club capable of success at Div1/2 level that is fine. Over time all clubs will have less successful seasons and sometimes less effective managers. Well run clubs bounce back poorly run clubs just sink.
Any club at our level is a feeder club of one sort or another. Good younger players get picked off by younger players after a few seasons and older players,as is likely with Norwood, leave without any financial return. Our side is a blend of borrowed and contracted players.If the loan element incorporates a relationship with a premier club it does not destroy the club identity.
What the article shows is that MP has vision and that vision is grounded in a realistic assessment of where a club like Tranmere sit.Better to have a realistic visionary than a fanciful dreamer chanting the nonsense so often spouted by new chairs of turning a club into a future premier league club

Guess he saved your bacon there. Maybe could have swept it under the carpet.
