Will prove crucial to Hartlepool United
- results for teams about our position in the league could have a dramatic impact.
- those, allegedly, looking at Pools as an investment will have had sufficient opportunity to look at the books to decide whether it is viable to proceed.
- players who are coveted elsewhere will be moved on, to provide monies to sustain the club for another week or so.
- decisions will be made by those currently in ownership of the Club as to what is acceptable, to them, to hand over to potential new owners.

Rumours have abounded, today, regarding what is the next situation to hit beleaguered Hartlepool United, but we all await any comment or clarification from Pools in respect of the direction of travel.

Good post OP, lots of rumours are of course currently circulating many of them doubtless started and circulated by those who wish the club ill. Whoever remains at the helm as the good ship HUFC founders at the stern need to keep the fanbase abreast of the current position. This is the very least that we deserve after investing our hard-earned cash in season ticket renewals yet again on the basis of unfilled promises and subsequently see it squandered as a result of Cocks-all's legacy or Craig Harrison's 'kid in a sweetie shop' misguided spending spree on the failures who make up the vast majority of his close-season signings.

Worst case scenario is our one or two remaining decent players move on and the remainder of the squad take us down to the Northern League. Best case scenario is we get new owners, Harrison gets sacked and we hang on to our current status. Which is the most likely I wonder?

Everything hinges on the ambition of the fabled new owners (God willing) and the size of their purse - but surely their priority must be to stop the rot and turn things around on the field of play? Unless it transpires that they hail from Saudi Arabia they will not be in a position to cancel and pay off numerous playing contracts and enlist adequate replacements in a matter of weeks.

The alternative scenario is to assure the players that 'normal' service has been resumed and the immediate objective is to get the club back on an even keel on and off the pitch. In this instance they would need to remove CH, install someone at the helm who can somehow turn a sow's ear into a silk purse, water into wine etc and introduce one or two signings who could potentially make a difference. With Brian Clough and Sir Cyril long gone what would it take attract a new Messiah to a lowly National League outfit even if such a saviour could be identified?

Much as it pains me to contemplate this, the only way forwards for Pools is to go into Administration. Take the 10 point hit and try to survive as a football club, albeit, perhaps in National League North.

Administration would at least remove the "non-football" debts, and allow the Administrator to downsize the level of employees.
Though, of course, if he can't find a buyer or fails to see a viable business he would have the option of winding up the Club entirely!

Where has all the money gone ? Why were we getting such a rosy picture of the future from Duxbury a few months ago ? Why couldn't she see this coming BEFORE she gave Harrison a cheque book ? It doesn't inspire confidence !
We're well supported within the leagues we've played in !
Our history is selling players not buying them!

The only plus is that the current owner will be pleased to be shut of us at any price and a loss does present him with accounting /tax opportunities
