Bid Imminent - But Who Blabbed?

Bid Imminent - But Who Blabbed?

Sky Sports News have run a breaking story that the Randy Lerner consortium will put in a bid tomorrow morning for Aston Villa.

The report suggests the offer will be between £60-64million.

Great to see that bids are now incoming BUT:

WHO IS THE BLABBER MOUTH THAT KEEPS GOING TO THE PRESS?

Whoever it is, stand up and take a bow if you blow this approach.

This group did not want their name splashed all over the papers and most certainly will not have leaked the details of an imminent bid. These people don't mess about in the school play ground, they do business right. Lets just hope approaches are still made and bids do materialise.

I wish I hadn't logged on now. After reading that I won't be able to sleep tonight. Then I'll be glued to the box all day tomorrow awaiting any news. Cheers Sky way to mess my life up.

Hold your horses! If they are the business men that everyone thinks they are then how is it anyone outside of their bid team knows when and if they are going to bid? I smell a rat. This guys reputation is a bit suspect. Can we take anyone who is called Randy Learner seriously?

No leaks happen by mistake, trust me, I've seen it all before. There's a reason for them, even though those who leaked will never admit.

You get the feeling that only the old man can screw this bid up now. Lerner seems serious, and he doesnt come across as a guy who would waste time and effort in playing games. Dont worry about the name Steve64k. Randy's a common name in the states, and if he's successful in buying the club, he can call himself by whatever name he wants as far as I'm concerned.

I read aboput it with great interest yesterday in the Australian Press but its a great name and why would Villa not want to be linked to an inexperienced porn star.

There is no mention of a bid tomorrow on sky sports. It only says Lerner could put a bid in. Me thinking it is journalists trying to get in first. Ellis would be happy if he gets his asking price and Villa get the Americans we should of got 30 years ago.

The bids have been leaked because the bidder knows Doug will avoid selling if he can. With the bids in the open, more and more pressure is piled on Doug, by the fans, to sell and hey presto, the silly old dodger is backed into a corner!!!

My one concern over all this is that everybody is getting carried away with Lerner's perceived wealth. He will not put any of his personal fortune into this deal - they do not work like that. Any purchase will be funded by loans against the clubs assets. Hence if this deal does go through we will find ourselves in the same situation as ManUre and will no longer be a debt free club. Part of the attraction for Lerner will be the rise in tv money from next season. I'm not saying that this is necessarily a bad thing if we are able to achieve success as a result. So far I haven't seen any mention of the potential downside to this type of deal.

I think the most reasonable thing to do is wait and listen to what these people have to say. I can confirm they have made contact, they are wanting to listen to the fans and they do realise the massive potential at the club and want to put it back to where it should be. Lets face it, the current situation cannont continue, even if we were all behind Ellis (without knives!!!) he would still be having to go soon and better now than when the inevitable happen, that would just plunge us into even more trouble.
