Paladini is nothing to do with us. Milanese however was. He was never a director, but was interim manager/ sporting director. Since he left we've improved, apparently him and Liverani fell out. He has a massive gob on him as well, slagged off Slade when he was still here, and some players to fans. He also tried to get rid of our best centre back Mathieu Baudry to Peterborough before him and Liverani fell out.
I actually believe that Lawn will sell to the right person, he won't sell to someone who will fuck us over (I hope!)
This is perhaps what we need though, we need investment as Lawn and Rhodes have probably done all they can to progress the club with the money they have. However, I just not sure this is the right guy. I'm sure we'd all love someone with a reputable background and this guy leaves us all with no confidence.
Nothing is signed yet, so I'm sure it'll all be ok.
His reason for wanting to buy Vale was that his son was a massive Vale fan after watching our Anglo Italian Cup exploits against Ancona, Genoa and the like... The only issue that came with this is he said the same about Notts County when trying to buy them!
I think he was one of the many sniffing round Notts but it never got past the "interested" stage. Bradford are doing alright, they know what it's like to have a reckless owner so(hopefully)won't go down that road again.
looks a done deal to me does this, 6/8 weeks the chairman have talked and kept Parkinson updated with it all, all negotiations for players on hold, but he's done a press conference today and still hopefull stead will be signed within a few weeks. Fuck knows why, let's wait and see and what type of budget before signing players like stead up again. Might say more about parky tho tbh on that.
