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?

Dnne deal, SP got rid of musampa and reira both left sided midfielder, Beasley was injured for most of the season, but showed he could play a bit towards the end, but in my honest opinion, simply not good enough for the premier. To hang onto him meant buying him, and we could not do that especially the fee would have been in millions and with a new guv coming he may not want him, but have his own ideas who to bring in. just another 5% to go and then the excitement and guessing game starts. have you had a go at the number of players that will be connected with city. They are running a comp with the winner getting a signed shirt.

you all say its a done deal, and i hope more than any of you that is the case, however now the leading tabloids are suggesting the deal is in the balance? - My article hear may have been slamed, but something is not right, for british authorites to question it.

This has to be the most bizarre time we have ever experienced as Blues, Aaron. Certainly there are a lot of unanswered questions. Could some of these stories of involvement by unnamed British authorities that are knocking about be pumped into the world's media by the Thai military out to slur Frank's bid? Is Frank out to improve his image back home? What exactly has and does go on in Thailand's politics? I honestly don't know and can only shrug the shoulders and hope that our recently increasingly desperate Football Club can come out of all this intact and playing entertaining football. We are in too deep now and this has to all hold together as you rightly point out. One thing is for sure, the background you highlighted here is not going to go away for the forseeable future. Only goals and won games are going to push that spectre back into the shadows and we need some positive signs this coming week. What a summer!!

true buzz, i did think musampa was good enough he had a brillant loan spell with us 2 seasons ago. I personally think if were going to sign someone it has to be someone with a left foot seriously we dnt have anyone to cover that position who is gud enough

Reading an article in the MUEN some fans are saying that 'Fans' who have holdings of 2 to 3 % have not sold. They cannot be true Manchester City fans if what you read is to be believed. There is no trading shown on the website since 2nd July, this is quite a worry now, as I expected it to have been done and dusted by now.
