Everton Takeover?

Recommended Posts

Heard on the grape vine about this and there is an announcement on WAM:

http://www.wam.org.ae/servlet/Satellite?c=...-T-LEN-FullNews

 

So 60% of a leading Premier League club.

 

Man United - no way they would sell 60% stake.

Chelsea - Ambramhovic isn't bored yet.

Arsenal - Someone has only just taken majority holding.

Liverpool - A possibility but 60% doesn't sound likely.

Villa - Would lerner give up his holding, he seems to be doing well enough.

Man City - Already taken over.

 

Which in my mind could potentially leave us. What do you reckon?

 

Without details on the takeover it is hard to say if I would be pleased or not, but if it meant investment then I would not be against it. Just wish we could get a British billionaire to takeover.

It'll probably be Portsmouth. Be fantastic if it was us though!

 

Maybe Tottenham? Nothing's sure if you're owned investment company these days.

 

I'd welcome Sheikh Ahmed with open arms tho :).

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saqr Al Qasimi, the chairman of the Ras al Khaimah Department of Customs and Seaports, has purchased 60 per cent of an English Premier League football team, it was announced by WAM last night.

 

The state news agency did not reveal the name of the club, but speculation was rife in England last night that Sheikh Ahmed may have joined forces with Sulaiman al Fahim, who announced last month that he was acquiring the Portsmouth Football Club.

 

Portsmouth’s executive chairman, Peter Storrie, concluded the deal with Mr al Fahim at a meeting in Rome. However, a period of full legal and financial due diligence has yet to be commenced.

 

It was thought the deal had been scuppered when the disgraced former prime minister of Thailand, Thaksin Shinawatra, was linked to the deal by some English newspapers. Thaksin has completely denied the rumours.

 

Portsmouth finished 14th in the Premier League last season.

 

The UAE already has an ownership presence in the league through Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, who owns a majority share in Manchester City.

DUBAI, June 21 (Reuters) - A member of a ruling family in the United Arab Emirates has bought a majority stake in an English Premier League soccer club, the official WAM news agency reported on Sunday.

 

WAM did not name the club but said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saqr al-Qassimi has bought 60 percent of it, adding that details would be announced in a few days.

 

Sheikh Ahmed, a member of the ruling family Ras al-Khaimah, will be honorary chairman of the club.

 

Ras al-Khaimah is one of seven members in the UAE federation which also includes key oil producer Abu Dhabi and regional trade and tourism hub Dubai.

 

Last year Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Masnour bin Zayed al Nahyan bought Premier League club Manchester City, while Portsmouth is the subject of a bid from another Abu Dhabi investor, Sulaiman al-Fahim.

What about the referance to "honorary chairman" isnt that right up Bills alley

Sheikh Ahmed, a member of the ruling family Ras al-Khaimah, will be honorary chairman of the club.

Not Blue Bill......would this mean Bill staying on as "chairman"...........I know,i know,clutchin at straws but isnt that what us evertonians do :lol:

The interview on BBC Sport just suggests that Tevez going to Manchester city...................... Nothing else really

Dont think it did DM he said Tevez would be going to a club with history and are ambitious and wants to take the next step forward.

He mentioned City and Chelsea and "others"

One good thing though......he ruled out the shite :D

According to the unsourced report al-Qassimi, a member of the ruling family of Ras al-Khaimah, would be taking a 60 per cent stake and be appointed honorary chairman this week. A Premier League spokesman said they had no knowledge of an imminent takeover.

 

Ras al-Khaimah is one of seven members in the UAE federation which also includes Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Last year Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan bought Manchester City, while Portsmouth is the subject of a bid from another Abu Dhabi investor, Sulaiman al-Fahim.

 

A spokesman for al-Fahim denied Portsmouth was al-Qassimi’s target, while a source close to Anfield’s owners denied Liverpool was the club in question.

 

Should al-Qassimi take a stake in one of the British-owned clubs in the league it will make overseas investors a majority round the Premier League table. Ten clubs are in foreign ownership: Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Sunderland, West Ham, Fulham and Manchester City.

If it was us , wouldn't one of our share holders know about it ?

I mean 60% isn't something you can brush under the carpet without public disclosure .

 

Also , why would we have not heard any stronger rumours to decent players ?

A very far fetched theory here lol :

 

sherlock%20holmes.jpg

 

Keith Wyness was appointed ' non executive director ' of a company called Fluid Leader Group in July last year ( same month he left Everton ) .

 

The company received substancial benefits last year from a certain Sheikh Faisal Bin Khalid

Mohammed Al Qassimi :P

It's a connection at least :lol:

West Ham were bought out last month by another Icelandic mob

 

i think it was just rebranded, the company, still the same people, just a holding company or something now.

 

 

Fingers crossed it us, however it probably be spurs

No. Blabbing would scupper/taint any deal, Arabs like to do business quietly then announce it (and brag about it). Plus, if it was known we were the club, rivals would contact the buying party saying "we make better financial sense than them..." blah blah blah.

 

Anyway, I still have a tiny winy bit of optimism on this one. Especially as I was alerted to this by a colleague in Abu Dhabi. :D

I'm very sceptical its us, but you could fill me with a tiny bit of optimism, by explaining what was said by your colleague.

i cant see it tbh <_< it will be either Pompey, West Ham or Spurs.

 

Pompey - Obvious connections with the interested party atm

West Ham - Their new owners are a stop-gap for deligates to rekindle their losses...hence why they're icelanic bankers (again)

Spurs - Least likely out of the three, but i bet would sell up if an offer was made.

TBH it could be almost any team in the prem, i no it say LEADING but it could still mean anyone out of who's in it.

 

Minus the top 4 and City.

this morning i was following everything, every thread connected to this... and for some reason i was filled with pure excitement, and for what? no one has mentioned everttons name in all of this, its still unknown as to what is and has actually happened. So from now on, until more news comes through im putting it to the back of my mind, because it will only lead to frustration when the news finally comes and were all left disheartened once again

Wow loads of negativity on here around the club being everton Where's your optimism fella's. I know we've had years of one disappointment after another but things are on the change! No longer will Evertonians have to have a mindset of fear the worse. New Arab owners, honary chairman, Kenweight still in place on the board and plenty of cash. The good times are coming.. I'm willing to think positive, screw the disappointment. If we all wish and pray together for the next few days, the power of the greatest fans in the world will bring it too fruition :)

 

Notice a bid for Defour, been all over the news today and from the players mouth. Starting to splash the cash. Believe.

this could also be a load of bull, there might be no investor, could just be a made up story, if you think about it, the attually statement is very vague indeed, an there doesn't seem to be that much press about it, or so far any follow up from anyone.

 

I do hope its true an it is us.

I only hope it's true if it is us! I don't want it to be true if it isn't us - I couldn't face another team being bought out and us watching from afar again!!!

Well Everton were very blunt in saying "No" not them...usually get bit more banter than that. I am looking for the slightest bit of optimism lol :D

Like they would say "yeah it is us, just haven't got round to telling everyone yet". :lol:

 

TBH I really don't know, heart is saying "yay it is us", head is saying "nope, another red herring".

Don't think we will get a true idea of investment until Kirkby ruling is done.
