    New Manager Speculation

    Mido is going to be brought in, with specific expertise on player fitness.

    So when will the new North Stand project be mentioned? No?

    Hmmm is that not just what Xia thought. And Lerner. After throwing away so many chances we are playing catch up from miles behind with the teams mentioned after nearly a decade of calamitous mistakes.

    And we are losing one who went via Uber.

    So is this plan b all along now? Basically this looks like a staged takeover so Xia won't have to lose face on his disastrous investment.

    All we need is for Doug to say they are both like sons to him and the day will be complete.

    Slightly reminds me when Bates sold Chelsea to Abramovich back in 2003. By all accounts they were very close to going to administration before they massively lucked out on Abramovich and the rest as they say is history.

    What does 'co-chairman' mean? Is it like when Liverpool hoisted Gerald Houllier with Roy Evans as a co manager as they were too polite to sack him- and then he left within 6 months?!

    Seem successful (they all seem that at the start) businessman, with no football experience. Within 6 months they will realise how ridiculous football is a business- a easy way to lose millions if you are not careful.

    I for one welcome our new Egyptian overlords. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

    Well at least we can delude ourselves everything is under control for another 2 years. However my expectation of the Birmingham Mail and actual, factual, reporting is somewhat low. Most of that big expose piece today you could gleam from about half an hour's search on the web. It is sorry excuse for a newspaper to represent the country's second largest city.

    Going Under ?

    If Xia is to stay he will soon start doing irreversible damage like selling and leasing back the training ground or even Villa Park. For all those penny pinching and careful years Ellis made Villa asset rich- and this will all be stripped if this clown stays on much longer. It is pathetic how badly this club has been run for years.

    I suspect come Hull we will have the same owner and half a team.

    Well that sort of mindset gets you to the white house these days so it is not all bad,

    He can either lose a lot of money now and sell us, or wait, get us into administration, and lose all his money next year. Your choice Dr Tony.
