Totally agree with what Damian says. These rumours are total rubbish.
It seems to me that there is a whisper campaign being started to cast doubts on the potential in-coming bid from Randy Lerner. I say potential because nothing is sure until it is announced to the stock exchange.
That also goes for AV06 who some reports suggest haven't even spoken or approached Rothschild's yet or Michael Neville who is talking about upping a bid that, as I understand it, hasn't yet been made.
Confusing times at Villa. Like everyone else, I want to see the best group get Villa and develop it into the club it should be, but all this talk to the press is cheap, it is pounds, shillings and pence that speak the loudest. You want action in the boardroom, bids to Rothschilds then a charm offensive to let the shareholders and fans what the plans are. The ones not commenting, in my humble opinion, are the ones that are being taken seriously.
The rumour being put about - and I have no clue as to who is doing it - is that Villa will be merged with Birmingham City or even Birmingham and West Bromwich Albion. The ultimate aim would be to develop a super casino.
I'm sorry, but no businessman in their right mind would even think about doing such a merger because lets face it, if the clubs were merged, they would end up with exactly NO fans at all. You also have to say that is a businessman wanted a super casino in Birmingham, he wouldn't have to buy a football club in order to attempt it. If it was tied in with a club, as the Blues attempted to do, it would make sense and could be a great money spinner (gerrit?) but lets leave the talk of club mergers where it belongs, in the bullsh*t pile.
