Anti Villa Bid Whisper Campaign?

Anti Villa Bid Whisper Campaign?

Just seen this on Damian's Villa Blog: Click Here

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.

I thought we'd established on here that Birmingham have NOT been granted a license for a super casino anyway so this is all rubbish. Is he going to merge the 3 clubs and then move us to Skegness? (where I believe Skeggy said they have applied for a license)

I can't beleive you are giving airtime to the villa blog - easily the worst and least reliable villa web site. the things they do to get hits !

Totally agree with qKing. That website is possbily the worst I have ever read. It's just a vehicle for that 'Damian' (the Devils Son) to spout his crap. I don't actually recall ever seeing any news on it. The article you are referring to is just him specualting and trying to self promote. If he did recieve that info (rather than make it up) it was most likely just some bored Bluenose with nothing better to do!

This is the problem when nothing is happening - rumours and more idiotic talk. I'd just wish someone put a formal bid in or announce once and for that they are not interested. Let us know where we stand for Christ sake!

I'm not sure they are totally rubbish, simply because any sane and future looking owner would know that the move to a bigger purpose built multi use, and multi filled stadia is a must. OK its not ideal, who wants to share a stadium with Blues, but a new easy to get to stadium, with many other options than sitting in a seat in all weathers filled every week not every other week I'd rather be a supporter of the team that built and owned the new stadium than the one invited to share it.

To be fair, Damian didn't make up the rumour, I've had it said to me from two different places as well. Definitely not an attempt at self promotion. LOL sk1nner80, I'd better not go into the other Heather Mills joke!

Interesting as ever avfc48, progress may necessitate a move then you think? Can't see either side finding a ground share appealing.

A multi purpose stadium would be appealing to a businessman who had no passion for either the game or the club he/she owns. I, for one would hate the idea, but can see the positives in owning the complex. Don't forget, sport and especially sports stadia in the US is seen very much as big business because it is family orientated. Facilities and entertainment is catored toward a total package. Could this be a way forward for a progressive thinking new owner? If that were the case would a relocation be on the agender? RL refers to business opportunities in the UK - opportunities being a key word here.

To me it's such a ridiculous rumour, it shouldn't even be on here. That just spreads the rumour further and detracts from all the genuinely exciting things happening around Villa at the moment.

This is what rumours are all about, this article is not helping as it is a form of spreading the rumours, the problem is while nothing is happening no has anything to write about so they make it up.
