I wonder if the new guys are just there to provide finance ? 55% covers there investment - but Xia still runs the club and they have power of veto ?  - without a CEO thats how it looks right now (early days I know) 

No he doesn't.  Sawaris is the executive Chairman and holds the power and Xia will be there in name only until the regulatory details can be covered off for a full takeover. 

Xia can veto nothing unless one of the other guys sides with him against their partner, which is highly unlikely. 

Xia is yesterday's man. 

Expect to see a new CEO appointed shortly and Xia will have no input into that.

Where’s @Deisler123 at I wonder? And his thoughts?

It is possibly the best deal that one can imagine for now, assuming the new owners have good intentions (I don't see why not).

Just hope the take over can be completed sooner. Don't want this to drag into the new season.

Welcome back Deisler! I hope you’ve enjoyed your sabbatical

What are your thoughts on the recent ongoings at Villa?

This is perhaps what most Villa fans want, myself included. 

Things have to move on. Let's hope it works out.

Agreed. On the face of it, it would be impossible to make up a better scenario for the club. Hopefully these guys have good intentions and can deliver for us.

It'll be good when this thread gets moved to Other Football (or, for the good of football, Off Topic).

I have a feeling it will only be dragged back into here within a month or so, so we may as well leave it here for the time being. ;)

Hopefully the one good thing Tony has done (unlike his predecessor) is to sell to the right owners. Time will tell.

That's exactly what we said about Ellis. 

And Lerner.

Lerner got scared and Xia got broke. These two chaps appear to have earned their wealth as opposed to inheriting it. I don't see them wasting money or making promises or wild judgements. Eden's has his own sports connections and must have worked with Sawiris previously so they trust each others judgement. The fact our other owner wasn't at the interview speaks volumes for me and I don't think we will see him again. Good riddance. I can't see the new guys doing a "Sit with Xia" competition every few weeks. But I fully expect at least one of them to be at every home game. If only to be able to judge Bruce first hand and not take someone else's word for it.

So all his cronies are removed as directors and he is very conspicuous by his absence. Clearly not involved any longer or why was he not involved in the talks yesterday that could have ended with the sacking of the manager. Surely as part of a 3 man board he would have had some say in that decision. Clock keeps ticking.
