The tremendously named Randy Lerner is being linked with a takeover.



Doug Ellis's future as Aston Villa chairman appeared increasingly uncertain last night when Randy Lerner, the owner of the Cleveland Browns American Football club, was strongly linked with a takeover for the Premiership club. Lerner, who is worth around US$1.2bn (£648m), is understood to be preparing a deal that could end Ellis's 24-year reign at Villa Park.

Hope he doesn't do to Villa what another yank is doing to UTD>

The Independent – which broke United’s initial interest in Carrick – reports:

Their first strike in the summer transfer market has been a long time coming but Manchester United have finally sealed the deal for Michael Carrick - albeit it at a high price. The Tottenham midfielder could cost them as much as £18m, while Real Madrid claimed last night that they had completed the deal for United's striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

The Carrick transfer was concluded in the small hours of yesterday morning and the 25-year-old was understood to be in Manchester yesterday with the likelihood he will be announced as a United player today. Around 6.30pm, Madrid announced on their website that Van Nistelrooy had signed a three-year deal at the club, following the acrimonious year-long breakdown in his relationship with United's manager, Sir Alex Ferguson.

The announcement from Madrid came just one day after Ferguson had mocked the Spanish club's "two bob" improvement in their offer, although it is understood that Van Nistelrooy is set to leave for around £11m. It is some irony that the fee for a player who scored 150 goals for United in five years will not be enough to cover the cost of Carrick.

United last night stated that Van Nistelrooy had been given permission to travel to Madrid for a medical, but that a a deal had not been finalised.

While it is not clear what conditions Carrick will have to fulfil at United for Tottenham to receive payments up to £18m - they are likely to be dependent on United's success in the Premiership and Champions' League - he has certainly not come cheap. Sources at Tottenham have indicated that, had United held out, they may have been prepared to accept as little as £12m towards the end of August.

£18m for Carrick - £11m for Ruud, what the fuck is that all about then?

it makes absolutely no sense at all. none.

what am i missing about carrick? i've never been that amazed with him, though i suppose he had a decent enough year last year.

i don't like seeing tottenham selling players though, they should consider themselves a top-level team already.

...but for 18 million pounds, i guess anything can be sold. didn't shevy get sold for something like 31? and RVN got 11??

there's so much here that doesnt make sense to me.

Bulls*** alert.

The Observer:

Manchester United fans have finally accepted the Glazers, according to Bryan Glazer, the club's non-executive director and son of the controversial owner Malcolm. 'I think they have [accepted us]. I think they've seen that we haven't turned the place upside down,' Glazer told Tampa sports radio station WDAE in a rare interview. 'There aren't cheerleaders on the sidelines.'

There's none so blind as those who won't see!

He's right about one thing though, they've certainly turned United upside down, from one of the richest clubs in the world , to one of, if not the poorest.

The fairweather "fans" will no doubt be posting their thoughts in their droves in the coming weeks as the season draws near.

lol

i've been taking a bit of a break from football..between the world cup ending and the epl season starting.

i saw carrick play for spurs quite a few times last year, thought he was a good. but i don't see how he is worth the 18m pounds. i hope he proves me wrong.

it's a shame ruud left...hopefully rossi will make an impact this year up front.
