Have you ever been to Brinnington?
Brinny is truely dreadful and sub-Shameless, a law unto itself...shire horses wandering the streets and in and out of peoples' houses.

I thought Phil was from Cheadle Heath, which whilst not to be confused with la di dah Cheadle Hulme, is certainly a step up from Adwood.

I had black cabs in Stockport in the 70s/80s, Bridgehall (Adswood) and Gorsey Bank (Cheadle Heath) were by far the worst areas of the town back then, both estates had only one way in and out and both were places you didn't venture into without having your wits about you.

Gorsey Bank has since been redeveloped into a business park, not sure if Bridgehall is still residential.

Do you know if he got the ground as well. That is the big issue for them, no one is going to put serious money in while the ownership of the ground is outside of the club.
council own it.

He's been bankrupted before fleeing dubai in one instance

He’s a county fan. Hopefully the investment makes them more financially secure

Still get really good crowds.
Mark is a staunch blue. Has had season tickets in the exec lounge at City for years.

He will be excellent for county, he’s brought some excellent people on board and has some very gifted people working for him at the club.

He has never been bankrupt. He had a bar when he was in his mid 29’s that went bust in Wilmslow. But that’s as close as he’s come.
The crash in DUBAI hit him hard, but they ne we went under and lead to him diversifying into other countries. Turns out, Manchester was the most profitable of all!
