A way to move players back and forth à la Charlton?
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

There is absolutely no money in Dutch football so this would make the more sense.

It begs the question, if we seem so hard up for readies to go out and strengthen our 1st team,
is this gonna make that much of a difference?
Our scouting system will need to be on top form from here on in that's for sure.

Perhaps we'll ground share with them. Be a bit tricky getting back to the Crown & Sceptre by closing time though.

Strange to buy a second tier Dutch football team, with an 8,500 seat stadium. Surely there's got to be some business interest involved.
The only thing I can think is that TF wanted it because Ruud van Nistelrooy started his professional career there.

If it’s able to be ran as a separate business then perhaps they can buy players and then loan them to us or sell at a token fee.

Hopefully it’s a grand scam to circumvent FFP.

Oh, our owners wouldn't be as devious as that......

I would imagine it is for this exact reason.
