Is that person talking about the Jim O’Toole bid who says it’s ready to go once admin is declared-hoping for NSWE type bid coming from nowhere but suspect it might well get to that 5pm deadline with nothing happening.

Can’t fault the players today, certainly not downed tools

I don't think so but I haven't spoken to him directly, it's a bit chinese whispers but my aunt and her family are friends with the family of one of the players whose on the fringes of the first team. The chain of messages I've seen are that the players have been told that a takeover will happen and shouldn't need them to go into administration but they were also told tyhat there'd be a major announcement a few weeks back and all that happened was some people got paid but nothing more siginificant.

The tune of Diamond and some of the players has changed last week or so, openly criticising the two cowboy owners….think they are sick of lies and promises
Having had dealings with Steve Diamond whilst he was at Sale and having 2 friends who have known him for decades, he's not the kind of man to rile !

I wouldn't be surprised if Diamond is leading the push for the owners to sell. Of all the coaches in the league he'd be top of the list for me in this situation, if anyone can keep the squad onside it's him. A view supported by the fantastic performance and result at the weekend.

Hopefully he will be part of any consortium that comes forward now it’s in admin - he has kept his powder dry through the process, strikes me as someone who will have been working with someone in the background.
