Assuming our exile from the big league has spared us the prospect of a Glazer or a Hicks, the local consortium (not including anyone by the name of Hall or Shepherd, please) might turn out to be more than just paper talk at Ashley's 70% off for a quick sale offer. Whoever we get, they can't be much worse than the current lot.
In future the fit and proper owner test needs a section on stupidity.
