Not sure if this is good or bad news....is it one foot out of the door for Darragh as he looks to invest in another club?

One sure thing....This was another reason why McCann had to go.

Google has nothing on Kelgary Sports and Entertainment. There is a Calgary Sports but no mention of the two gents in the Posh release! A bit worrying!

No point sweating it though, whatever will be will be.

DMac seems to be gambling a lot lately. Feels like one big push, which is understandable. He's never been one to do things by half.

Just released a statement on Radio Cambs- Darragh praises the "drive and business acumen of these two investors ",from Canada apparently. No experience of running a football club. Bit like Hicks and Gillet at Liverpool, and we know how that turned out.

Well,it has all been a bit dull the last few years but not anymore ! Gonna be an interesting atmosphere for the Charlton game which was a big one anyway.

I don't see this as too concerning. just need to wait and see

It could be Darragh preparing the ground to step away altogether

Change is always unsettling but they probably deserve a chance to see what they bring to the club before casting judgement

May be his way of buying back the ground from the Council?

Otherwise, I must confess to being a tad uneasy. However, one assumes Darragh has done his homework.

Kelgary Sports etc is a newly formed venture. Both parties have ‘good’ track records available on Google, though.

Reading between the lines it seems like the two new co-owners are looking to take control of the football club!
I am suggesting that eventually Dmac may be looking to pull out.
My concern is the quote "all three partners having equal voice" - meaning that the two newcomers can outvote Dmac on issues he doesn't want
