Same here, I’m wondering if a potential new owner could have asked for a new CEO to be in place whilst the deal goes through, and that’s why Fisher was appointed.

Billionaire owner eh? Seems Gillingham could go from one of the lowest spending clubs in the EFL to being a Premier League club very soon in that case. Much like Brighton, Brentford & Bournemouth.

Not all billionaire owners spend, ask Barnsley fans

Depends what his plans for the club are (if it’s true), still all just internet rumours at the moment

Even if he spends, £1 its more than scally in recent years
That’s the total of Scally’s investment, he has done very well out of it though over the 27 years (and I’m no Scally basher).

It’s just the club finds itself back at square one after that initial quid.

I'll always appreciate scally for saving our club and giving us the best times I've ever had supporting us but the time has come for him to go for the club sake and his own health which apparently is not good.

The club has stagnated and under him we are only heading in one direction and that's into non league, time for a fresh approach it may not work with a new owner but we need to try it as a club.

It sounds a lot like John Ryan with us, his money could only take us so far, in the end he tarnished his reputation with us and it seems Scally has done the same with you, best thing is to separate the person who saved you from the one who left at the end because we all have faults and I’m sure just as JR had , Scally only wanted the best for Gillingham, they just get lost in their own ego’s and with social media the bile of utter numpties

Scally's biggest problem has always been, he's In the right all the time, it's his way or the high way, his ego has got to big and its caused problems with the fans, he can slag us fans off and think it's ok but goes running to the media when fans bite back ( not condoning the vile abuse he recieved some of it went way to far).

This is just about the perfect summation of our situation.
Thanks Paul but let’s try and move the club on.
It will be with a certain amount of trepidation though as not all overseas owners end up being good for the clubs, do they?

Nice to get a fee for a free transfer.

Harris was asked about the rumours today and didn’t dismiss them, said he’d seen them himself but was a bit in the dark.
