New CEO maybe coming in: Surely no imminent sale?

It transpires that Randy Lerner was in the country today and while there were suggestions that maybe he was over here to sanction some much-needed transfer funds, someone in the previous thread called it spot on (ITK Lionheart? or a pure guess?) in that he was indeed here to have talks with a prospective new CEO, in Arsenal’s chief commercial manager, Tom Fox;”

Now it makes sense that we need a new CEO, but does it make sense that we would look to appoint one when there are suggestions that we’re close to being sold?
I’d suggest not, as if a sale was imminent, surely a prospective owner would want to look to bring his own man in?

Or could it be that Lerner is working with a prospective buyer and the latter wants Fox in?
I doubt it personally.

Which probably means that any dreams we might have had about a big fat transfer pot in this window have er, gone straight out of the window.
Ah well, it was a nice thought while it lasted.

As for Fox being American, I’m not sure if that means anything.

    Match day at last! I predict a bad-tempered game with Newcastle indulging in as much physical intimidation as they can get away with. With Pardew and Keane in either ear, I would not like to be the 4th official.

      Morning Bill πŸ™‚ I see you’re going against all the pundits with a Villa win. Not beaten Newcastle in last three and only one win in last six (think that’s right) Newcastle lost last 6 on the road. Got draw written all over it so I’ll have to go 1-1. Hope I’m wrong and we manage a win.

          True Bill; just got this horrible feeling! Probably a hangover from the last four years when putting two wins together was beyond us. Was Stoke another false dawn? A lot riding on today; hope the crowd keep the faith.

    Apparantly, Villa and Grealish in discussions over a new 5 year cotract – absolutely imperative we get him signed up and soon.

    2-2. Villa scramble late equalizer after Magpies down to 10 men.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
