With Alan Pither reported to have submitted a "serious" offer in the for Club for a miserly £1, current co-owner Paul Baker is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "We had an offer from Pither, but it got withdrawn. We had another offer from Pither and it was for a pound. Next thing, I got another offer from somebody else saying they would take 50 per cent of the club and then there was somebody else who was alluding to having 50 per cent of the shares. They are all working together, there is no doubt in my mind. I want this resolved as quickly as possible for the fans, the players and the people that work at the club but I'm not going to be taken down the path of playing games. They won't get the club by playing games".

For their part, Bournemouth Holdings (set up by Alan Pither), is quoted as saying: "After careful consideration by the consortium, it was decided that if we were going to go ahead with the purchase, we would have to be in control of the debts run up by Sport-6. That is the reason we offered £1 for the club and to service all the outstanding debts. We are not even sure if we are prepared to fund the club to this extent without other parties getting involved to ensure the club is successful in the future".
