  1. This is disgraceful. The club has been handed from one despot to potentially another and not living within its means. As a City supporter I hope a Luton/Leeds collapse is not coming. I’d be more comfortable with a British owner who was simply committed to the football club for football purposes and not investment and would have the funds to steer us permanently clear of relegation.

  2. From what I hear, the new investment group has actually brought Citeh out of debt and based upon their bids for Berbs, Villa and Gomez, they must have some money to throw around.
