City takeover in doubt AGAIN?

City takeover in doubt AGAIN?

British authorities have asked the Anti-Money Laundering Office in Thailand about Thaksin's Assets in Britain,and how they should deal with the situation.

The Bangkok post, state that British authorities will co-operate with Thailand. In a letter sent to Thailand, questions about what Britain should do where posted.

Last week Thaksin made an 81.6 million pound bid to buy Manchester City, and Thaksin's advisors have now past out letters to City shareholders, in order to reach his 75% stake, However with so many questions still unanswered about his past, could this be the final straw?


As I begin to discover more about Thaksin's past, one thing i have discovered is that His Thai Government tend to say something and do the opposite. For instance The Thai Government reported that it would not interfere in Thaksin's Bid for Manchester City, however they have now issued an enquiry into the deal.

I may have questions unanswered about Thaksin Shinawatra, but i am beginning to belive that he is innocent. Please Thailand, do not interrupt this deal!

Don't believe everything you read in the Press, Frank will see the deal through and then it will all start happening.

Regurgitating crap from the Press does no good for Manchester City.

It will be a sad day indeed when Britain co-operates with an unelected dictatorship over an individual who has been found guilty of nothing. Don't believe what you read all the time ..... the press clearly has an agenda where MCFC is concerned.

I understand the transfer was done by a well known brokerage firm, who also did the Rags takeover, the money was legitmately transferred and as 'Frank' has committed no offences in this country, and is not guilty until proved otherwise in Thailand. I agree with ronin that it is unlikely for this country to deal with an unelected Governement.

Dunne deal, The majority shareholders have been purchased, next is the little guys like myself, I own less than 1% of 1% and there are thousands of us, what he now has to do is find out who next owns the most shares and then buys them in that order. He currently holds 65.71% he needs another 9.28% for example Dennis Tueart owns 36,258 shares and 1% of shares is 540,824 so he if buys DT along with Bodek and Mackintosh shares that comes to about 0.10%. Then comes the smaller holders it will take time.

Yes dunne deal but they are only buying part shares initially and then increasing as they go on. This is a full buy out and takes longer to get the 75%. I agree with you regarding the players. Sven has to know what he has got, I think thats why we still have Kenny Jacket, he has worked with the first team squad, Sven I understand when they did the interview with Frank, he said that the discussions had taken place regarding who they want and identified where they need to strengthen, ie 2 midfield 2 strikers etc. Dont push the panic button yet. The main thing is that we get behind frank and sven against this anti City campaign in the media.

Guys. This is how the Villa takeover went last year wasn't it? Dragged on and on and left M'ON with rugger ball time to get anyone. Come the winter transfer window there are only scraps to be had. Dick Tater had better get his skates on. Maybe crack a few of your shareholders heads together?
