eBay Really Does Have Everything


_44936633_tranmere_226The Tranmere Rovers, who reside in Prenton area of Birkenhead, England play in League One, two divisons down from the English Premier League and are currently for sale. Club Chairman Peter Johnson however is none too pleased for the manner in which the sale is being handled. He awoke yesterday to find out that Dornoch Capital, the US firm he had hired to facilitate the sale had placed the team on eBay with a starting bid of $10m.

We were appalled,” Johnson told BBC Radio Merseyside.

It’s totally inappropriate. We immediately e-mailed them and said ‘take it off right away’. You can imagine how shocked we were to wake up this morning to find out we were on eBay. We’ll be considering [Dornoch Capital’s] mandate. It’s not a second-hand bike we’re selling.

I don’t think we want this sort of publicity and I think a lot of people knew it was for sale because the local paper mentioned it at the beginning of last season.

If they can find the right buyer then he can take over at Tranmere but its got to be the right buyer and I don’t think putting it on eBay is going to find the right buyer.

Interesting about the Rovers, they are also nicknamed the Super Whites, leading their fans to call themselves the Super White Army, which isn’t terrifying in any way…
