The Randy Lerner Thread

3,045 posts in this topic

We'll see.

You've answered your own question.

I'm not on a wind up, like I keep saying. What use would winding a forum up that by the looks of things has less than 100 active members. There would have been the same thread on villatalk.com, but the registration set up takes the Michael.

QIA is owned by a family. Theres no rule stopping each member of the family having their own football club. Research the owners of PSG and Malaga. It'll all become apparent.

here's my number one reason for assuming this is nonsense, you seem to be knowledgable on this subject and confident that the deal will be revealed in the coming months, which means you are "in the know" so to speak. so either you were told by someone involved in the deal who trusted you to keep it to yourself, or you are involved in it yourself, and either way i don't understand what you get from telling a forum what is happening.

are you a Villa fan?

Haha true, anything that would sh*t on him would be good i hate that pr*ck more than i should.

you've just said something in another thread Skyba that's got me thinking, if this IS practically a done deal then surely some money will be spent in Jan? And if not, why not?

The only reason I could think of is that lerner would have conditions of the sale that would need verifying before it's officially a done deal meaning that it would be a big risk for him to take the money.

Hey Guys, just thought I would let you know Bill Gates is buying Villa and ploughing in massive amounts of his fortune into Villa!!

I have no sources but I am not lying and you will have to wait and see!!

See how easy it is to start a rumour!

God loyal you go on about negativity on this board and then you put reply's like that. Nobody has said they believe it's concrete but you must admit that if the club were to be bought out it wouldn't be a surprise. The shares HAVE been getting bought back and the QIA have been looking at clubs and have been rumoured to be interested in villa.

If I were to put a percentage on how probable this is to be true I'd say 50/50 the only reason I have to believe it's not happening is scepticism and the fact that you've pointed out it's easy to start a rumour.

I was just making the point that its easy to start a rumour with no evidence!

It's also easy to support the belief that villa will be finishing top 7 this season before it had started with all other evidence saying other wise.

What my point is that if you were to say villa are signing messi, that's obviously not true we don't have the money nor the pull of a club that could sign him, but we are a very attractive investment, and also let me ask you 1 question. Do you honestly believe that if someone came offering lerner big amounts of cash for the villa he'd turn it down??

Imo he'd take the money and run, he can't afford us anymore and an asset that is costing you money is no longer an asset it's a liability and a liability that lerner can no longer afford.

He's in the money game right, well the world has seen nothing yet the economy the world over is going into very dire times and men like lerner will be going down with it.

So coming on here and basically saying it's all rubbish and it's not going to happen. Not your exact words but I'm guessing it's what you meant or you'd have elaborated a little more is not being negative??

Also you didn't answer my question. Do you think lerner would turn down a bid??

So am I to believe every randon that comes on to avillafan with wild rumours? Geta grip pal! Show me even a shred of evidence to support this guys claim and I will then give it some credit, untill then I will assume that it is a wild rumour.

As for Lerner selling if a bid come in? Maybe depends on the offer I suppose!

I never said you had to believe it I've not said I believe it all I've said is that it would make sense if it did happen.

Evidence:

Villa have forcibly bought back all shares sold to supporters in the 80's. FACT. This suggests some sort of movement behind the scene's regarding ownership of the club. Ask yourself why would lerner randomly by shares that have no value to him whatsoever these shareholders have no effect on the running of the club.

QIA have been trying to buy a club in england and have failed they tried to buy utd but couldn't everton and didn't and blackburn and got turned down. FACT.

We are a very good investment and if you look at it villa are probably the one of the few clubs that have a good background and could be bought in the prem.

Also me and stu have both heard that they've been interested in buying the villa.

Not saying this means it's the truth but the shares raised questions before this guy came to the site. Not everything has to be based on hard fact. We can also choose to discuss what could happen and the reasons we feel the might without that meaning we believe it.

Let's keep in mind that Skyba spent the entire summer telling us that he believed RL was selling. Do you really expect him to refute a rumor that supports it?

What just like in the same way you all said he wouldn't and you wouldn't support a rumour that if true would prove that wrong???

I'm not saying I believe this at all. I'm just saying if it did happen it would make sense considering the goings on lately.

I don't do the "I told you so" thing. There was an article in the Mail a few weeks ago that said Lerner still loved the club and had no plans to sell and blah blah blah. I don't remember if it got much response on here, but I never responded if it did.

Yeah I have neither started this thread or claimed that it is fact, I've just outlined why I feel it would make sense if it did happen.

The one question that hangs in my mind is these shares being bought back. There's no reason other than a sale in my eye's why he'd be buying them back, it's a minor amount of money to him and they have no bearing on the running of the club, the only thing they would effect is if he wanted to sell the club and keep it from the stock market.

If someone could give me another valid reason as to why he's done this I may think differently.
