Another Rumour?

imageI have been searching for anything related to the current sale of our club.
I have found this in the telegraph
Micky’s game on for Aston Villa takeover deal
Micky Arison, the chairman of cruise ship operator Carnival Corporation, is back in the game for his rumoured takeover of Aston Villa FC.
Just weeks after The Lions’ current owner, Randy Lerner, confirmed he has hired Merrill Lynch to advise on the club’s sale, Arison, who already owns the Miami Heat basketball team, has swelled his war-chest for potential sporting acquisitions by selling almost £6m of Carnival shares.
This week’s transactions are the latest in a string of six share disposals since March, taking Arison’s total new disposable income to around £36m – or a healthy advance towards the £200m that he and Larry Ellison, the Oracle software tycoon, are reportedly considering paying for the Premier League team.
Like Aston Villa, which narrowly avoided relegation last season, Arison has everything to play for.
But will Keith “Mr Football” Harris, the investment banking fixer advising Lerner on the club’s new owner, believe the tycoon who was at the helm at the time of his company’s Costa Concordia tragedy is the right man to captain the ship?
There has been a lot of rumours floating around lately concerning AVFC and the sale of the club.Most of them are probably guess work and journo’s putting 2+2 together as they do.
I wonder if there is any truth to this only time will tell…..UTV

    Well, there’s no point looking for news on our sales. Its not happening. We’ll be in this mess for years until the clubsvplaying on the midland combination against rc warwick. No one with sense would buy a football club to male a loss. Lerner out crowd have killed the club. Cheers guys.

      Lerner would of sold anyway he fell out of love with the club when MON left. I still don’t believe we are up for sale anyway it’s just a ruse by Lerner to appease the fans so he can maintain relegation football on the cheap without fans moaning

        Lerner wanted MON to leave… He fell out of love when Houllier left.

      Very clever JimT. Lerner has killed this club. Get real for Gods sake!!!

        For all intensive purposes it looked liked, after bringing wages in order, he was going to spend again. But all he’s had for the past 6 months is torrents of abuse. Harsh when he’s put so much of his own money in now looks to make a loss. Everton have Bern up for sale for almost 3 years now. They’re ate no buyers. The club’s dying. Should gave given him the chance to spend. But alas, no, the impatient villa fans and their sense of entitlement trumps reality and any chance of a future. You may as well choose your next club, because we’re not going to exist soon. No buyers = drift to obscurity.

        Also Bum Bum, you are reponsable too. Yes he made his mistakes, but you’ve left him with no choice to try and sell when there is no buyers. Thus leaving us in this state of limbo for years until we inevitably go bust and City become nu1 in Birmingham. Well done. Hope you’re proud.

    haha oohahh, what owner of a club deliberately sabotages his own club! while with the goal of being vilified and lose millions of pounds!

    if he had made any money out of this maybe you could accuse him of that, but lol he just made mistakes, let get over ourselves, he tried he failed, he is not vindictive, he is not trying to con you into a season ticket, He was trying to make villa successful, he failed,
    now he is looking to sell it.

    i would need to see a better argument for malice on his part than anything I have read yet.

      It maybe up for sale but he is in no rush to sell it. If he keeps us for another season and we stay up with spending peanuts he will still pocket £90 odd million not bad. He will only sell quickly if someone makes a ridiculous offer which is highly unlikely. Everton have been up for sale for years. I rest my case

        You rest your case? It’s a pretty poor case. Lerner pocket £90M….I somehow doubt that, and you are assuming we will stay up having spent next to nothing which is not the impression you usually give of our prospects. As for your statement that we are not really up for sale this just beggars belief really.

        Lerner will have a tough job selling at anything like what he needs to to claw back some of his losses. It doesn’t look like there are many buyers out there interested in the club, so maybe not many people see owning a Premiership club as a passport to untold riches. That so many fans on here have accused Lerner of milking the club of cash over the years just shows how out of touch with reality they are.

        Lerner has messed up big time, and I bet he regrets ever having bought the club. If its possible to make £90M a year Oohah I would think £200M is damn cheap.

          If £200m is cheap buyers would be snapping his arm of. Unless they are deliberately waiting till end of aug when window is shut so they can spend fuck all

          1. JimT June 9, 2014 at 6:31 pm .

            No they wouldn’t because it’s clear no one want a premier league club anymore. Why but something no one wants, you can’t make any money from and will just be subject to thousands of abusive fans berating you everyday because of their unrealistic expectations. People like you ate responsable for this. Lerner made mistakes, but if we’d have let him try to finish fixing them we’d actually be a much better prospect.

        So how is every single person that works for Villa paid? I mean if he’s draining all this money, 90m for TV, sponsorships and stuff… How are the workers at Villa Park, players, staff, receptionists etc… Paid?

        1. OohAhPaulMcGrath June 8, 2014 at 1:09 am . Reply

          Out of the tv money, sponser ship, merchandise and hate money of course!

          1. Andrew June 8, 2014 at 1:28 am .

            So where the hell is he pocketing 90m from? Lol

        Idiot. Everton have been up for sale for years because there are no buyers. No one wants a premier league club. No one can compete with man city’s cash now. Stupid to try.

    IncogAVFC claims Keane has signed for Villa as Lambert’s number 2.

    Someone on twitter claimed Lerner’s yet to receive offers, but has interested parties but he claims we probably won’t see an offer.

    Then my mate claimed he’s got an offer and has to make a decision by the 16th. All interesting.

    IncogAVFC claims representatives of Bendtner and Pilkington were seen at Villa Park.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
