According to national press reports, former Birmingham City owners David Gould and David Sullivan are under pressure from Birmingham’s supporters for selling the club to Carson Yeung, a Chinese business man has now had all his assets frozen and faces bankruptcy in the face of massive debts.
A vicious “Twitter” campaign has started against the former owners Gould and Sullivan, Birmingham fans are not happy that they sold their club to an “Unsuitable Person”. Does this remind you of anything? Club badly run and no money!
I would think the Walker family are pretty concerned or maybe not!
I know what Jack Walker would think, he wouldn’t be to impressed!
Livings around me are quite a good number of Man Utd fans, “they get where damp can’t get”!
The burning question I have been asked these past few weeks is who is Phil Jones and why has Fergie paid 16 million for someone we know nothing about?
Rover’s joint owner Ventkatesh Rao is on record, during the Asia Cup tournament, as saying “Steve Kean is their manager for good” his words exactly.
Never in the history of football has a manager had such an endorsement, not even the greats of the game, Ferguson, Dalglish, Clough, Paisley, etc. I could go on and on, it is an amazing statement, I can only think it got lost in translation, if not, it only serves to emphasise how naïve the Rovers owners are.
A list of all the signings we were to make following the Venky takeover is very impressive. Ronaldinho, Beckham, Adebayor, Bentner, Pavone, Van Nistleroy to mention but a few. Names all from the mouths of the Rao Brothers and Steve Kean.
And what do we get, Dundee Utd striker from the Scottish Premier League financed by the sale of Nikola Kalinic, you just could not make it up! Please please no more stupid promises that you cannot keep, stop taking the Rovers supporters for idiots.
According to press reports Venky’s have dispersed with the services of Jerome Anderson and his Kentaro agency, having paid him a small fortune to advise them to sack Sam Allardyce !, I told them back in December 2010 to get rid of Anderson,(see my website).
It now begs the question what does Steve Kean do with Anderson’s son Myles, the Leyton Orient and Aberdeen reject he gave a two year contract to, and we all thought money was tight!
Surely Kean is next for the chopping block.
Only problem is what manager anywhere will want to work for the Venky’s? Probably none, keeping Kean in a job, unfortunately.
Tony Parkes would make a better fist of things.
