The ibtimes are suggesting that if a new owner takes over at the Villa, Tim Sherwood’s position as manager might not be safe.
The article even goes on to suggest that our CEO, Tom Fox’s position might be a bit dodgy too.
So how is this even a story?
A new owner comes in, he has his own ideas and isn’t obliged to keep on any of the original staff, is he?
It’s why I regard the press with such disdain, as my opinion says they just don’t have a clue and it’s all made up, with nothing to back it up, apart from Fox stating the blindingly obvious in this case.
In further news, it’s been reported that Tom Fox has said that Christian Benteke will be offered an improved contract.
How does he know this, if he’s about to be thrown out on his ear?
Unless he’s party to the talks that are discussing his dismissal, of course.
Either that or Fox does know something, which suggests he’ll be staying on and knows it.
Whatever, any talk about the supposed takeover is just that, talk, as, as has been correctly suggested, there will be non disclosure agreements agreed, hence the media won’t have a clue about what’s happening until the deal is done and announced.
In the same vein, you can write off any speculation about who we might be bringing in, I reckon.
How can anyone speculate when we don’t even know if there’s a sale, let alone any of the current hierarchy staying on?
That said, we do appreciate some of you love the speculation and if anything appears newsworthy, no doubt it’ll be commented on by one of us.
Which reminds me.
I did hear from a source, that Milner is on the verge of rescinding his Liverpool contract and signing for the Villa, as he’s sick of the scouse fans already complaining about how poor he is.
Remember, you heard it here first 😉
