What’s the point. All they are going to say is the same old stuff. Big club, big history, want to get back to winning things it will take time, we have a plan etc... Not that I look out for it, but I do you ever see any comments from owners/ceos from the likes of Utd, liverpool etc?

No I don’t see it with other clubs, but I don’t care enough about other clubs to know who their chief execs are, let alone what they have to say. Off the top of my head I know Woodward at Man Utd, but that’s only because he’s recently been in the press. Couldn’t tell you another one, and I wouldn’t really care to know any others either.

I just find it strange we haven’t had an official welcoming line from Purslow, the person essentially running the club. Yeah it’s gonna be the same old fluff, they’re not going to give us their five year plan in an interview. But to hear nothing is a bit weird to me.

When new owners come into clubs it is natural to hear from them. Including Man Utd and Liverpool. That is good practice. You don't want to hear from them all the time and especially when their setups are in place but when they're new then of course fans will want to hear from them.

Lerner, Krulak, Fox, Xia, Wyness et al.

They all talked too much and talked too much bollocks and they all to a man did absolutely nothing ultimately for this club. 

Im not worried about the new guys not spouting any platitudes or hot air. Just do the bloody job and get us back up as prem main stays. That’s all I ask.

An interesting development. It looks like Xia has gone, and NSWE have full ownership now. 

Apparently not.

Quote

Tony Xia has written off £49million worth of shares, it can be revealed.

The former majority owner of Aston Villa released the huge amount to help the summer takeover go through smoothly.

Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens were only prepared to invest £30million for a 55 per-cent share of the club.

And for that to happen, Xia had to write off a portion of the shares.

The Chinese businessman has NOT sold his remaining stake, though, and still retains a 45 per-cent control of the club.

The recent filings on Companies House were related to the paperwork from the summer takeover. It was simply a realigning of the shares...

While the RECON chairman still retains his minority stake, he no longer has a deciding say on the day-to-day running of the club.

Xia no longer visits games and has been cast aside from making key decisions as Sawiris and Edens take the lead role.

It’s also understood that Xia could see his stake in the club reduced further if he fails to match the equity injections of NSWE.

Our guys getting creative. These fellas know what they’re doing it seems. 

Don't want to burst any bubbles but from what I understand this is pretty standard practice for a company with multiple investors/owners. Just insulating themselves from it all going south.

Where I work we just had a management buyout and it was similar to this, and it was their first go at ownership for 80% of them.
