Doncaster talks break down

Doncaster Rovers have revealed their negotiations with proposed investors Sequentia Capital have concluded with the parties unable to reach an agreement on a deal.

Sequentia, supported by an anonymous wealthy Belize-based tycoon, have been in takeover talks with the Sky Bet Championship club since June.

Their bid was supported by John Ryan, who brought the consortium to the table, and boardroom disagreements over Sequentia's offer led to Ryan resigning as chairman this month.

The club has now confirmed that it will remain under its current ownership structure.

"Negotiations regarding the ownership of Doncaster Rovers FC have been ongoing for a number of months, however the current owners feel it is in the best interests of all stakeholders if the club remains in their control," Rovers chief executive Gavin Baldwin told the club's official website.

"The decision was based on what they believe is best for the club and they are looking forward to working with all involved in Doncaster Rovers to ensure that the club continues to progress and that the business continues to thrive.

"They are excited about the future of Doncaster Rovers and helping the club to realise some of its unfulfilled aims.

"The current owners have a clear and exciting vision for the club which they are keen to deliver."

Sequentia pledged to spend upwards of £20million to help propel Doncaster to the Premier League and a heads of terms agreement was subsequently signed by both parties.

Ryan supported the bid but a boardroom split ensured that the offer was not accepted.

He stepped down as chairman after 15 years in the role before the game at Barnsley on November 9 because he felt "isolated" in the boardroom and believes his fellow directors "lacked ambition".'

The 63-year-old recently said he could be tempted back to the club should Sequentia complete a takeover - but only if the current directors were no longer involved.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
