Bradford Bulls: Bidders wait to hear who will take over club

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Bradford Bulls: Bidders wait to hear who will take over club Bradford Bulls: Bidders wait to hear who will take over club

Richard Lamb could learn today whether his bid to buy Bradford Bulls has been successful after Mandy Koukash all but accepted defeat in the battle for ownership of the Super League club.

The London-based businessman is fronting a consortium of wealthy backers from the capital and is hoping administrator David Wilson will finally accept their offer.

The long-running saga took another twist yesterday when Mrs Koukash revealed Mr Wilson had indicated her offer had fallen short of rival bids.

She said on Twitter: “I am hearing my bid will not be the winning one. My bid was focused on helping the Bulls.

“As I understand, the RFL has nothing to do with the decision. It is based on the highest bid to pay the old debt.”

Mandy Koukash was one of several bidders, which included consortiums from Bradford City, Bradford Park Avenue and businessman Marc Green, who is owed around £250,000 following a loan he made to OK Bulls last September.

It was thought Mr Green, who as the debenture holder is the club's principal creditor, could look to take control of the club himself.

But it is understood the administrator and Rugby Football League are edging towards giving Mr Lamb’s consortium the green light.

Mr Lamb told the T&A: “As I’ve said all along, as and when we’ve got an understanding of how big the task is, I’ll look to find the investors to support the club going forward.

“Any proposal from me is based on a clear understanding on how much money is needed to turn the club around.

“We have sought to ensure we have enough investment to take the club forward this season and future seasons.

“Fans don’t need to worry about that, but it’s down to the administrator and the RFL now.

“The main thing is that as and when they see fit, they will make a decision and then whoever is lucky enough to take the club forward will have a lot of hard work to do in the next few weeks.

“That is hugely important because the club is in a state of flux right now and needs to be in a better position than they are currently in the table.

“Things need to move quickly but we believe we have put together a convincing plan that will work.”

A decision on the club’s ownership could be made today or tomorrow and Mrs Koukash said she would be willing to come on board as an investor with any new owners.

The wife of controversial Salford Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash made a high-profile attempt to buy the club, which has been in administration since January 31.

She attended the home 66-18 defeat to Huddersfield Giants on Sunday with her husband and two children.

Despite her bid apparently failing, Mrs Koukash added: “If possible, I would consider working with the winning bidder.”

His comments say ''I’ll look to find the investors to support the club going forward. '' Does this mean he hasnt acually got the backers people are saying he has as it stands and if he looks but doesnt find any backers, we could just find ourselves in another admin come the end of the season. It doesnt leave me brimming with confidence. Maybe its just worded wrong but he means he has the backers. Not sure at all

A combination of Richard Lamb with backing from Mandy Koulash seems the best case senario-it is a time for teamwork , not egos and the fans demonstrated on Sunday that they are ready to back them with passion.

As part of the bid you had to prove funds in place, I think he was referring to the pre bid period of time where they get full access to the finances so he can build a proper bid with investors, business plan and evidence of funds for the business plan and cash bid itself.

Mr Lamb says''when he as evaluated the task in hand,he will seek investors''.My observations on that statement,is that if the numbers don't stack up as hard headed businessmen they will not invest in the club. From a purely selfish point if view as a supporter what is the point of paying the old debt off if we are not getting the six point deduction wiped off.We have been shafted by the terms of purchase laid down by the administrator.

He also says fans have nothing to worry about this season of the coming seasons. I suspect the investment he will be looking for will be to grow the club and achieve the standing he believes it deserves. As he stated before, it was a massive brand name in SL and his intention was to get it back up there.

here we go again; all we have had from Lamb is interview and comment; promising this and that; now we have I will seek investment!

We need an owner who does not need investment but sponsorship, Bradford Bulls begging bowl should be put back in the cupboard and forgotten about.

It is telling the that the other two Bradford based bids BPA and City have resisted the urge to tell the world how great their bids are and how great the Club would be for them but instead have kept quiet and are working through the hoops that the administrator has put in front of them.

It is not about what owning the Club will do for you but what you will do for the Club!

Lets see what Lamb and his 'consortium' have up their sleeves before judging. This negativity will not help the club going forward in the slightest.

I will sit and wait to see what happens after the winning bidder takes the helm.

If what has been released in the press is to be believed,
Lamb already has an investor in mrs koukash,
And you can never have to many investors and sponsorship in superleague
if you are to compete.

Lamb and his team are businessmen, they invest for profit not for the love of the club.
As MM and his team said months ago, the Bulls are not a sustainable business on its own.
As I've said before it's not about the club, it never has been,.
Look around the ground and think outside the box !!

Well here goes another tin pot owner who has no money to invest in anything...How we going to get out of the sh1t - Koukash was the best bid and now we got Mr lamb - Think i will have a lamb curry from Omar Khans tonight to celebrate this good news.....NOT.
No money?
.
Some folk need to prepare themselves for good news. I pre-warn because I know how much it will some of the moaners.
.
The future is bright.
'No money to invest' - read it u plank, I.e. the ground & the players plus wages, improving the entertainment etc. etc.
Did Mr khan do well with the same view and same cash? NO
Well how is Mr Lamb going to be so different?

Also please explain you crap grammar below

'I pre-warn because I know how much it will some of the moaners'

You should keep quite if you cant make any sense.
I will explain. I missed the word 'hurt'. As in 'I pre-warn because I know how much it will hurt some of the moaners'.
.
I will make a couple of points. Firstly, others seemed quite capable of figuring it out. That indicates more about your 'intelligence' than my grammar. But to be honest, we could all be grammar police if we wanted. But it wouldnt get us anywhere. For instance 'u' instead of 'you', upper case I in i.e, lower case K for Khan, cant without the apostrophe. Pointless isnt it?
.
Getting back to the original post. Lamb is heading a consortium that has money, and they will invest.
It is also spelt quiet not quite.

Look around the ground and think outside the box !!
For a start, the RFL wouldn't relinquish the lease to allow development other than rugby related. you may remember that was one of the reasons they acquired it in the first place, to stop the vultures.

secondly, did you not read about Lambs initial interest, he wants to build the Bulls brand and get them back to the potential they had in the early days of summer rugby.

But dumb comments are expected from you, you have previous!
