Tittle Tattle From Graham Taylor On Villa Sale

Tittle Tattle From Graham Taylor On Villa Sale

There seems to be a lot of fuss about the comments by Sir Graham of Taylor who told Radio WM last night he believes that Villa have been sold.

The quotes are here in the Birmingham Mail

People are saying that if GT says it, it must be true. But if you read the comments properly, GT admits it is 'tittle tattle` so he`s got it off someone else, who has probably got it off someone else who heard it online or from twitter!

'The feeling is that the club will be up for sale {1}, it is only tittle tattle but I had heard that the club had been sold on the basis that it had retained a Premier League place, if it didn't, it wasn't sold. {2}

'We all hear stories but I heard that from what I would call a good source and I think that just fits in with a lot."

{1} Totally agree, think it is obvious now that Randy has probably had enough. We have a willing seller here.

{2} The supposition for a good long while now that gathered pace after the last daft statement from our owner that was meant to clear things up and in fact was as clear as mud.

GT is very clear with his wordings, he's not trying to pass himself off as a first hand itk. He is not the sort who would break a confidence, he is way too long in the tooth and too much of a gentleman for that

He is repeating the already strong rumours they have been all over the internet and in threads like this, for a good while.

People do read too much into these things and miss the main words. He admits it is gossip.

This is all I've tried to say all along, until randy speaks it isn't fact UNLESS someone has some substance behind it.

It could well be any of those named, someone not named, or not on at all.

The time I will get excited (or otherwise depending on who what when) is when it is fact.

You can be 100% sure Graham a Taylor has not been approached because he would not be talking if he had and I know that as another group right back at the Ellis time had asked him and he didn't mention it once.

Also, why do people think it can only be Texan's just because we have a pre-season friendly there?! LOL... we'll see.

Our, over 100 page, thread on Randy Lerner selling at the point GT starts to be discussed: Click Here (Please note more adult language etc)

And my feelings on the matter which I hope helps whilst we all wait for the statement from Randy:

From what I can gather about the statement is it may or may not say we are for sale and/or have or have not sold.

As an addendum, I believe it could or could not include that the manager has or has not been sacked.

I hope this clears things up slightly, I am breaking confidences repeating it but thought it was time.

If we are sold I have names for you...

Tom, Steve, Dave, Tim, Jon, Mark, Matthew, Bernard, Andrew.. All May or may not be involved.

The buyer I'm told, could or could not be from Europe, America, Africa, Far and/or Middle East or in fact elsewhere.

It is pretty strongly rumoured they are of human origins although alien forms can't be totally ruled out according to David Ike.

Rumours Rumours Rumours! I'm hoping that once we have finished today Randy will say what he going to say and I'm hoping its new owner and new manager on their way and we can start to compete again.

Hopefully we will get a statement later today, but I expect we will have to wait a bit longer

I feel Randy will say that he is looking for a buyer and that until that time staff stay as they are and we "go again" next season. Nothing to exciting but I pray to the Lord McGrath that I am totally wrong and that change is gonna happen.

Reading your piece JF you seem to be inferring that I intend to buy Aston Villa, although you try to throw people off the scent by adding "may or may not" well I can tell you now, "I'm out!" Andrew
