Takeover On Tuesday Morning?

Looks like the Irish press are full of speculation that the takeover of Aston Villa by the AVIL Group could take place as soon as the stock market opens on Tuesday morning. Further rumours and reports suggest there may even be a press conference at Villa on Monday evening.

Looks like 2006 could start off in a very interesting way. Lets temper this with the fact that we have been told things are close before, but this time the whispers seem to be growing to screams and with a bit of luck and a prevailing wind, Aston Villa could have new owners in time for the transfer window!

Further rumours suggest - and I repeat, it is only a suggestion (he says as if that would stop legal action if it is wrong!) that it hasn't been Doug holding up proceedings, but a possible glitch in the deal to buy the second largest shareholder, Jack Petchey's shares. It seems this has been ironed out and - if we are to believe whispers, rumours and press reports, it could be all action come the 2nd of January.

Fingers crossed the deal - if it goes through - is right for Villa, right for all the shareholders, not just the majority holders, and is right for the fans. This is a fantastic club, it deserves the best.

Happy New Year to all in Claret and Blue!
