Probably what C&A are hoping for, an auction taking place in a court house.

Sorry pal, this isn't America!

 

In America, the league stepped in, regulated the sale, found a reasonable bidder with proper long-term plans and finances, and cut Hicks out of the equation (Texas Rangers).

 

Thankfully we're in Britain where the league has no such bothersome aims.

As far as I can make out, the shadowy consortium is made up of several Chinese, a German, two Thai, one Spaniard and an Irishman.

 

Those consortium members in full:

We already know your endless appetite for sneering at foreigners. Your racism or xenophobia - whatever it might be - makes me wonder about the "purity" of your bloodline. You are so fascinated with the subject.

 

I think we should be allowed to see the Lim bid. Broughton and Purslow have made a number of very bad decisions - the pressure on Rafa the hiring of Hodgson, the selling and loaning of good players and the purchase of second rate players. Purslow failed in his main job to bring equity participation. Broughton failed to find a buyer committed to building a new stadium and he failed to find a buyer by the end of August at a time when competition between buyers may have been expected.

 

They tell us that Henry and co own a Nascar team - so does Gillet. They own a baseball team - so did Hicks and an American football team and Gillet was also praised for his efforts to stabilise and develop the Montreal Canadians. So what's the difference?

 

Broughton and Purslow found a buyer only after the RBS called the shots and created the urgency of a deadline that brought the price down.

 

Let us hear Lim's bid and exam his credentials and see his commitments.

 

Subject to the above I would prefer to see LFC marketed in Singapore and the east rather than in the USA.

 

In any case, a Chelsea part-time Chairman and an account/banker should not be making these decisions without consultation with the supporters.

Purslow promising consultation after all the decision have been made is just more self-serving PR.
