Villa (part) takeover complete, thank fuck.
 
 
 
 
 
Aston Villa will receive "significant investment" from Egyptian billionaire Nassef Sawiris and American tycoon Wes Edens as the Championship club try to secure their financial status after missing out on promotion to the Premier League.
 
Villa owner Tony Xia spent the close-season searching for fresh investment to plug a reported £40 million deficit after Villa were beaten by Fulham in the Championship play-off final last season.
 
He had entered talks to hand over some of his control of Villa to Sawiris and Edens' company NSWE in exchange for a cash injection.
 
Those discussions have concluded with Chinese businessman Xia now Villa's co-chairman under a joint-ownership arrangement.
 
Sawiris is estimated to be worth £5.2 billion ($6.8 billion), while American financier Edens co-owns the Milwaukee Bucks NBA franchise.
 
"I am extremely pleased to have formed a strategic partnership with Nassef and Wes. We have a common goal of delivering future success for Aston Villa and I look forward to working together to achieve this aim," Xia said.
 
"To have come so close to achieving promotion last season was a humbling experience. In finding such strong partners as Nassef and Wes we're gearing up to fight again and bring back the success that this Club deserves and we all so want to provide it with."

Everton are a joke.
 
this from Dale Johnson on twitter sums it up.
 
Everton's £50m for Richarlison gets them a player who last scored a goal for Watford on November 19, and didn't supply an assist after December 12. This is all based on three months under Marco Silva. It's crackers.
 
Everton's spending in the last two years includes:

Richarlison £50m
Gylfi Sigurdsson £45m
Yannick Bolasie £25m
Michael Keane £25m
Jordan Pickford £25m
Davy Klaassen £24m
Theo Walcott £20m
Cenk Tosun £20m
Morgan Schneiderlin £20m
Ashley Williams £13m

Expect to see more and more of these Yank owners with US banks lending and the value of their sports teams going through the roof.

This lot taking over Villa are apparently looking at Thierry Henry now to take over from Bruce. 
 
Have we learnt nothing from the past? Another rookie manager when we need some experience!? Bruce isn't the best but despite all the problems..  He very nearly took us up. Henry hasn't managed anyone, let alone getting a tram promoted. 
 
Just reeks of another disaster brewing

Just standard linking new owner to new manager talk imo, happens every time.

It feels good waking up knowing we've got the security of an extra 7 bil or so behind us!

Doesn't change this FFP bullshit though, we should just ignore it and keep Grealish imo. If we get a transfer embargo then who cares, just sign some players before it happens. Selling Chester for 10 mil and then being left with our only senior centre back being Elphick is a terrible idea.

I hope it is just speculation. 
 
I'd just focus on steadying the ship financially and unless a realistic, better option came up... give Bruce another season
 
Like Razor said... It does feel good to have a bit of money again. They just need to oust Xia now and all is good
