And me also! No, I only have this one account!
I would say it is a large purchase. There are so many different things which lawyers have to look into. Think about when you buy property with a freehold (Scotland). That itself involves many checks. Buying a football club in its complex nature will take even more longer. Not everything is owned by the club, so you are including more complex issues.
MC is either a balloon, optimistic, or Mittyish when he foolishly said it would be completed end of August.
Not that I would have thought this long, but staff illness, holidays, poor man management from the paralegal staff in either or both lawyer offices can derail any timescale either parties expected.
I expect the sale to go through, but both sides have to be on the proactive with the lawyers.
FFC have remained quiet, which I think is right. MC hasn't so everyone is hounding him on twitter, and receiving monotone automatic replies meaning nothing.
