    Villa Kit 2018-19

    We’re in a massive decline now too so it really is a fitting reference.

    World Cup : Group G (Eng, Bel, Pan, Tun)

    He could have made it less obvious because England have turned the game into a clear farce of trying to lose.

    Well, no - it was shareholder debt (not quite the same as true debt such as owing it to Chinese banks or a shady parent company) that Lerner mostly converted to equity.

    Have you been in the Steve Bruce thread or is this your first day on VillaTalk?

    This is totally **** up if true! That means we owe £49m to the parent company, which is owned by a number of holding companies, none of which Tony owns a major shareholding. And then, on top, we will owe a further £50M to Chinese banks. Rejoice everyone...we’re saved! @TheEgoplease can you post the FT link again? Cheers.

    The loan is in CNY. Deisler just converted it to GBP for ease.

    Huh? The government react to market conditions and change rules accordingly but the specific rules which may effect Tony Xia shouldn’t even be an issue for him.

    There’s an article on Newsnow in which Professor Simon Chadwick talks about how it’s pretty much an excuse that Xia can’t get money out of China. It‘s appears that he’s simply running out of money fast and his businesses at home are also struggling.

    Ahh well, at least Doug Ellis/Randy Lerner <delete as you feel applicable> no longer has the inignity of being our worst owner ever.

    Indeed, but it was obviously never anticipated that this would happen and that instead the club would now be heading for the Premier League.

    I said at the time, I suspected that wasn’t a paid sponsorship deal but instead a transfer of non monetary related resources. Recon got marketing/brand enhancement benefits and in return the club gets technological improvements and access to specialist knowledge. This deal added to my suspicion that the entire purchase was done for the benefit of Recon. Aston Villa football club was merely being used as a giant advertising board for a company in China with the world wide exposure enjoyed by the Premier League being the main goal.

    Nuremberg Villa posted a while back that he’d heard the club was skint (or Xia was). He’s not the type of poster to make stuff up and it seems his source might have been bang on.
