As for the takeover, after speaking to my father and some of his friends, some of whom were members of the board over the years. There has been no formal approach to the club and it appears that all there is is simply rumours in the press and media.

That's not to say a consortium hasn't been meeting to discuss a bid, just that nothing formal or otherwise has approached the club.

I'll say this much, those wanting to give Kroenke the boot, and I'm not his best fan. He will not go entirely unless it's a tremendous pay day. He'll always want a slice of the pie. Best scenario? Buy most of his shares and work with Usmanov to get a deal done.

But as I've said this seems nothing more then simple press rumours and idealistic/desperate fans wanting a dream of Man City or Chelsea.
