Telegraph: Fulham sale to Khan almost complete. Sky: Deal is done.

Al Messerschmidt

It looks like this is really happening. The speed at which this came about is pretty amazing.

Sky Sports is reporting the deal is done.

Although the deal is only almost complete according to the Telegraph.

If this happens, I'm going to be optimistic going forward; but there's always going to be a little uncertainty until things are settled. Hopefully the transition is quick, and the we see how the new regime operates right away.

I'm still collecting my thoughts about the end of the Al Fayed era and all that he meant to the club. He deserves a fitting send off and I'm still not sure exactly what it will be, but I promise something will come.

I sincerely hope no more news breaks, because I was looking forward to a nice quiet weekend in wine country. Though this last piece of news gives me the excuse to post this:

I hope Shahid Khan never gives me a reason to post that video again. From this moment forward it will be reserved for moments of anger and frustration. And I think we can all agree we'd like to avoid those.
