Sotnick Out Of Owls Running

Sotnick Out Of Owls Running

Former Boston chairman Jon Sotnick has ruled himself out of mounting a taking over for the Owls and has ended his interest in the club according to BBC Radio Sheffield.

Sotnick revealed his interest in the club towards the end of last season and looked to be in a two horse race with his consortium alongside Geoff Sheard and his backers.

But it now looks as though Sheard is now the only name in the running to takeover at Hillsborough after Sotnick revealed to Radio Sheffield that his backers have not 'shown the colour of their money' and that he is 'not at the table'.

Sotnick had previously claimed to have sufficient funds to rival the bid made in February by Lancashire businessman Geoff Sheard.

But now Sheard is the only known party to be interested in buying the Owls, although Deloitte have revealed they've had a number of enquiries about investing.

Here we go again. Can't see it happening, sorry to have my depressing head on but can you??? Isn't this the start of everyone backing out and we'll be in same position as we were last season.

Was there ever going to be a takeover. If you believe there was then I bet you believe in Father christmas and the tooth fairy. Its all talk just to keep the fans quite. No other takeover has ever gone on this long not even Man U`s takeover.

Following his Boston experience, I'm not sure he was the right man anyway. Onward and upward.

I agree, I think we should have a great season if we can keep everyone fit and bring in a couple into midfield. It's just typical us though isn't it - big news of a takeover...that never happens. So this Father Christmas bloke, not real you say?????
