$200 Million Takeover

Cortese studied in Switzerland, where Yakin is from. So we just need to find a link between Cortese and our billionaire and we have the perfect set up. Well we can dream can't we.

I'm salivating... New owner (with backers), Cortese, Yakin and a nice transfer 'war chest' for the summer. That'd make us soon forget about Marc Albrighton, at least!

I think someone here mentioned that Newcastle might be interested in Cortese...I don't think he'd be interested in them as Ashley is very happy keeping Newcastle right where it is, and won't be even trying to break into top 6. I'd say he's either trying to buy Southampton as part of the consortium or then he's gonna be hired to be CEO by our buyers.

Gawd I hope it's the latter.

You'd have to wonder, clearly he'll have seen a lot of his hard work at Southampton dismantled if they sell Shaw & Lallana.

The youth system was in place before he joined the club though. The credit for that is usually given to Rupert Lowe.

 

 

Aye, but as he said there was no way he'd have left them leave, and he was 18months into a 5 year plan.

Careful. Sounds too good to be true, and we know what that usually means (especially with regard to Aston Villa).

Red Bull is Austrian. Right inbetween Italy and Switzerland. The two of them probably had discussions in the middle at the billionaire backers gaf. Vola

In the interview that was linked a few pages back cortese says that financially they had no need to sell players as they were in a sound position, he seemed quite prickly about the fact they had let some go and particularly hurt that there were inevitably more players to follow out the door.

As for Albrighton it's not too late for a dramatic u turn lol, maybe if lambert is in the know he'll have a word with marc

I have no idea what is happening, but I am loving the way you guys are throwing yourselves into the detective work.

It makes very enjoyable reading.

I know what you mean, it's like something out of The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo Millennium series...

Someone on that TBAR has been saying all along that the new owners will be Saudi and that they'll bring a European CEO with them and has stuck to that story despite the hysteria around other ideas on that site. Suggests that he has a friend in the media and to be fair to him looking through his posting history he seems to haven gotten more correct than 'Admin' has.

Fixed for you. The dream is a Billionaire tag team funding Nicola's project.  :)

Isn't Lerner friends with a Saudi prince? Used to show him around the training ground occasionally?

Frank Leigh.

 

I had to sign up to see their takeover thread which means I can now look at poster's posting history seems a pretty sensible poster. I think he genuinely believes what he's saying but says that it's what he's been told by a friend in the media.

 

We'll see.

I don't know whether that guy was a personal friend of Rand's or what. I think the story was that he had a box at the VIlla and just wanted a look around the Training Ground. I think it was also mentioned (by Mysteryman Possibly) that he had box at Everton as well but could be wrong about that.

Some interesting quotes in this Express article.

 

 

Lambert was told months in advance by Lerner that he was intending to sell but had to keep it private until the official announcement.

 

"It was my job to protect the club, that's what I did," said Lambert. "How did I feel when I went over to New York at the weekend to speak with   Randy Lerner? Tired. It had all been on my shoulders, all the problems of the season, I had to protect everything and I did that.

 

"Even if we were to get off to a flyer to the new season, I don't think it would change Randy Lerner's mind about selling. The chairman has been great and honest but I don't think it'll change his mind.

What's happened to all the real or pretend ITK's? Seems like every other post, earlier this week, was a new theory with some inside information. Now it's all gone quiet. Has somebody bought them all off?

 

 

Mendi's no longer an active poster.
