Xia is a fraud and a clown Who has absoluteky no idea of what he is doing. He will probably sell the day of the transfer window closing.  Mug

At first I automatically associated Mandaric with Portsmouth and it being destroyed.

However after seeing some of the comments by Wednesday and Leicester fans it seems he is actually quite respected and a safe pair of hands.

Also very experienced at fixing broken clubs.

It's not what he does. He turns clubs around and then flogs them to long term owners for a profit. Seems pretty good at it and exactly what we need.

Isn't he the guy that let Redknapp destroy Portsmouth for short term success?

He had sold up by then

Give him a five year contract, Richards needs company. 

Seeeerizly tho, if Tone is turning down offers that match his demands he must be expecting better offers to follow.

I must be missing something, Lerner spent two years trying to sell the club and struggled. By the time Lerner sold there was no debt, but we’d been relegated. Xia reportedly paid £80M.

Now, two years later the club is leveraged to the hilt and he’s turning down offers that value the club at more than he paid for it.....how can that be ? 

Something doesn’t ring true here, if Xia carries on taking loans at the rate he has been his ‘investment’ will be worth zero...why would he reject bids out of hand without negotiation ?

Rubbish. He has saved many clubs before.

Apparently him and Harry actually bumped heads because he wanted a long term sustainable model and Harry wanted large brown paper bags and instant success.

I've also read that he fixes clubs and leaves them debt free.

Please god no. Mandaric is a charlatan of the highest order, currently destroying my hometown Olimpija. True, we won the title last season but his promise 'homegrown talent and attacking style of play' is total bs. Its purely business for him, he sells every player he can and sacks managers for no good reason... patience of the fans is slowly running out, i don't want him anywhere near the Villa.
