15 May 2009: Eggface

Note to non-Saints followers: this blog entry also contains information about romantic fiction and a story about a silly man who was hospitalised by an egg, so read on.

According to the Daily Echo, today is D-Day for the front-running bid for Saints.

The Matt Le Tissier-led Pinnacle consortium will either be announced as the preferred bidder, or will be removed from the negotiations altogether. Elsewhere the Stock Exchange has received an announcement that Southampton Leisure Holdings, the parent plc of the football club, has not and will not be getting new ownership and has therefore been wound up. So - live or die time for the football club.

On the other hand, they've been saying that for weeks - but at least this time it seems something might be happening in terms of ultimatums if nothing else. The question will be: who's going to end up with egg on their face?

(The answer, apparently, is Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot, who is currently out injured following an incident in which an egg he was cooking exploded in his face, and he had to be taken to hospital.)

In other news, my sis won an award for her new book 'Tug of Love' which isn't even out until August! Well done, er, 'Allie Spicer'...

Update 11.49am Eastern: No news as yet from Mr Fry, the administrator, but the mood on the Saints Web Forum seems to be dropping through the floor as the club suddenly seems a whole lot closer to being liquidated than previously thought.

Can't wait to read your Sis's book! But tell me, are you...or your sis...closer in genre to your dad?
