  • A statement on the Club site tells us that businessman Nassef Sawiris’ group NNS and businessman Wes Edens, will immediately inject significant investment capital into the Club. That's pretty much all it says, but does this mean new owners too? They are apparently both quite wealthy too. Nassef Sawiris has a net worth of US$7 billion according to Forbes in

  • It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted, mostly because I got caught up in the World Cup and summer and going out, instead of staying in and reading more nonsense about Aston Villa. I have noticed a few things though and well, it makes for good reading. There was an open letter from Tony Xia. In it, he

  • Things don't look good and as every day passes, it's getting worse. I was under the impression that things would move quite quickly a couple of weeks ago, but it turns out our owner is not only a fool, but a stubborn fool. It's not a good mix.

  • Things seem to be going from bad to worse at the moment. If you hadn't heard and you probably have, the CEO has been suspended. Now, speculation was that there was a winding up order about to be presented. But that's just speculation right? It must be, because the BBC are saying that that has nothing to do with why

  • There are so many ways this could have been written that I thought it best to not use this situation as a means to have a little pop. And it's also worth pointing out that it's a story in one of the tabloids, but if the tabloids are to be believed, our illustrious owner is trying to sell the Club.

  • The dust hasn't really settled yet because changes are coming but I want to start this post by saying you're all right. Now, there are always two sides to a story. He said, she said. And you know what, everyone is entitled to an opinion and right or wrong, you can have it. At the core of mine has always
