A new consortium? Judge for yourself!
The Birmingham Mail have named 'deputy High Court judge and top international solicitor, London-based Nicholas Padfield QC' as fronting a consortium apparently called 'AV06'
Apparently, their proposals went to Ellis this week and are waiting for talks.
1) Proposals would not be submitted to Ellis, they would go to Rothschild.
2) Why would any group want their name in the press before entering into formal talks?
I know the press, including all the web sites, HAVE to look for articles and report these things but there are very loose lips somewhere? I thought once the club was in the hands of Rothschild that everything would become much more professional and run much smoother. Darn it for forgetting the Ellis Factor!
Reports that Sven's agent Athole Still was leading a consortium have been as good as dismissed as not true.
In Bill Howell's report, it says:
'A source close to the consortium said: 'Our money is as good as anyone's and is already in place. We will make sure there is money for players for now and the future and our investment will be such that well after the initial deal we will be looking after the well-being of the club. We can't turn Villa into Chelsea overnight but we can aim to be a solid top-10 club initially and then take it from there.'
Bill also says 'Padfield is a big hitter on the legal front in London and is a Deputy High Court Judge.'
(Mental note to self. Padfied is a big hitter on the legal front, keep your mouth shut or say nothing but nice things).
I've always said how much I like judges and hard hitting lawyers particularly.
(Mental note to self. Phew, nice one, well done).
