However, as of last month, the process hadn’t started yet – but Kennedy thinks it has since begun.
He said: “I’ve heard the same rumours from people but nothing from any official sources that say it has or hasn’t [started].
“I’ve got a good feeling on it. I’d imagine it probably has. That’s my feeling on it. But [for] anybody out there, I wouldn’t judge on my feeling as to whether it has or not because I don’t know if it has.
“I think it probably has, I think the timescales suggest that it probably has, but again, that’s purely guesswork on my part.
“The official line from people in and around it on all sides is nothing. It’s silence.”
Do you think the arbitration case has started?
Yes, it must have
No, probably not
TIF Thoughts on the arbitration process…
Kennedy seems to believe that it has started, but he can’t be 100% sure, which is fair enough.
However, we would hope that it has started to finally have a resolution to this takeover saga that began on the 14th of April 2020 when Ashley agreed a deal to sell the club.
We will be watching on with interest in the coming weeks to see if there is any progress made on this whole takeover situation, but unofficially, the process looks to have at least started.
