Will Gold Be A Catalyst?
We rocket engineers understand the catalytic qualities of that most precious of metals, gold. Yes it can provoke a strange chemical reaction in some women causing them to remove underwear and climb beneath the sheets with ugly dwarfs, yes it can induce MPs to ask questions in the House and promote and support legislation they might otherwise regard as abhorrent and yes, it can persuade players to walk out on the club and fans they have previously professed to love; but these are not the catalytic qualities I am talking about. Not a lot of people know this, but gold, in the form of tiny pieces, can transform carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide when used as a catalyst. Gold can also enhance desired chemical reactions as a catalyst in the removal of odours and toxins or to clean automotive exhaust gases.
So what? Well I certainly do not want to see David Gold as our new owner but there have long been rumours of other suitors who have been holding out for a lower price. Perhaps, just perhaps, if Gold makes an offer, somebody else might be forced to show his hand, somebody with a few more aces up his sleeve than Gold. Perhaps, just perhaps, Gold could prove to be our perfect catalytic converter.
