Time For Takeover Truth

Time For Takeover Truth

David O'Leary wants some resolution to the takeover saga which seems to have been running longer than Coronation Street. It appears obvious that the Comer deal is dead in the water, the group have never put in an official bid despite being assured the bid they suggested they would make would have been recommended to the Shareholders. If they had the money, with that sort of comment from the board of Villa, surely the deal would have been sealed? That said, you can understand a delay in anyone approaching now, because we are yet to reach a points tally in the Premiership to ensure our safety. If we went down, so would the asking price but if we stay up the club obviously need a deal done and dusted quickly so that funds can be put in place for the summer. If the current status quo remains, it seems clear that there will be very little, if any, money available to strengthen the squad.

David O'Learysaid: 'There's been all the negative uncertainty around which I ve been trying to keep out of the place. To kick on what we need, we haven't got at the club and that is no disrespect to anyone. Like the fans and everyone else, I'm hoping something positive can happen so we can stop having to answer these questions about the future of the club. It would be lovely to come back in the summer and everyone s concentrating on the football - and to not get asked about the future. The longer it continues, the more the uncertainty grows.'

Adding: 'What I've been hearing since Christmas is to keep the club safe until something happens.'

So, it is surely time for the board to give us all, especially the shareholders, an update on what has been happening with Rothschild? It is also time for the Comer Group, who set up Aston Villa Investment Ltd (AVIL) for the takeover attempt, to let us know what the situation is. Have they the money? Are they still proceeding? Are they waiting to know if Villa are safe? Or are they what many of us fear, not in the game at all?

Be careful about mentioning the Titanic, I got into trouble by mentioning the comparison of that great ship to Southampton on the Pompey site.

No need to panic, our entry to the InterToto should boost the share price.
