    Really don’t know the ins and outs of this one but Pat Murphy reported it on the BBC and that might mean something….or not.

    Just thinking about 3 points tomorrow and nothing else. Another crucial game but I really think we’ll do it. One more win and we should be there, especially if Everton do us a favour and beat Sunderland.

        Think the baggies will be in their flip flops and mentally on the beach. i can see Sunderland getting something, even a win there, despite being a shambles. A win against West Ham would be enough for us I think.

    On the offer for the club, I finally feel there is some truth in the rumours. Clearly, staying up is crucial. If we get relegated Lerner will be stuck with us and vice versa.

    Once our Prem status is confirmed, this will all hot up, and there may be some competition to buy us. I’m not getting too excited about it though, as i feel it is at least as likely to make things worse as better.

      Bottom line is that no matter who’s in charge because of FFP there is no way of ever seriously competing again for major honours.

        ‘Seriously competing for major honours’????

        What the f*** is the FA Cup then if not a major honour? And I think we’ll seriously compete for it.

        As for the league I’d settle for a couple of seasons of mid-table mediocrity while TS builds up the team.

        Might even be better though, TS has got us winning games without spending a penny what might he accomplish with 30-40 million?

          Sherwood won’t sustain it. We won’t win cup not a chance and FA cup is no longer a major honour finishing 4th is more imp ESp as it will be Emirites cup next season says it all.

      Agree these capitalist vultures will be no better if not worse than Lerner. Expect them to spend reasonably in summer to get us all on side then it will be the usual 5-10 m to keep us up while the greedy bstards take in sky money

    Last word on Roy Keane. Response from TS via the BBC a few minutes ago –

    Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has cheekily hit back at comments made by the club’s former assistant manager Roy Keane.

    In his updated autobiography, Keane claims Sherwood was turning up at matches at Villa Park to position himself for the role should the club’s former manager Paul Lambert fail.

    But Sherwood believes he went to 30 to 40 matches, spanning a number of clubs, and added: “If that’s a formula to get work then next time I’m out of a job I’m going to turn up at the Nou Camp or the Bernabeu.”

    Touché.

    I am fairly certain that Tony Adams will be at Wembley. I suspect a chant is already being Ehoned by those Holte end fog-horns concerning which of the clubs he thinks is worth buying.

    But on the subject of a purchase, the technology is already in place to have perimeter advertising which is coded to camera, meaning that the spectators in the stadium and those viewing television feeds on different cameras see different adverts which are all ‘there’ simultaneously. Chinese Gambling sites, Yankee insurance and Thai breweries for example. The revenue for the adverts seen on Sky, BT sport or MOTD as well as the paying fans will be controlled by the current TV deals to avoid conflicts of interest, but the adverts going abroad will be a revenue stream for each club. £150 million is peanuts, expect more bidders if that is a price at which Lerner will sell.

    Bid being reported on BBC and Pat Murphy quoted as saying it’s being taken seriously in ‘the City’ – make of that what you will.

    Consortium led by Paul Smith ex Chelsea Director and an expert on revenue producing deals with a high profile deal record in the Prem. Supposedly backed by blue chip investors.

    Article says Adans would be brought in re ‘footballing affairs’ but no threat to TS.

    Who knows except I suspect the way TS has us playing has woken the market up.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
