I also believe that Aldridge is guilty of assuming the takeover was done and dusted rather than anything more serious (there is a connection).
I will try and expand on this later this weekend but ultimately this is a f*ck up that was meant to be a clever bit of business that went horribly wrong. People need to look at the conduct of the previous Chairman's running of the football club between July and November to see how the Joorabchian deal collapsed and why we are 5.5 million pounds light.
Eggy has been an excellent Chairman imo but those who compare him vs Joorabchian should note that Joorabchian is actually a little more switched on then people gave him credit for.
Good observations imo. Uncle Terry seems to have rather stepped out of his league and read the runes rather badly. Joorabchian was always a lot smarter than most gave him credit for and spotted a ramshackle outfit when he saw it.
