Cue pictures of the Villa badge/crest splitting in half on the front page of the Mail.

Should we be worried?

I must admit I find all this sort of thing very confusing.  Who owned the ground before?

Didnít Christian Purslow specifically state there were no plans to sell the ground at the recent fan forum?

Sell the ground naming rights I imagine. Selling it back to ourselves is different.

Oh and fuck Steve Gibson

No, he gave a clever answer, where he said there were no plans to sell the club 'to a third party'.

Do we now not need to agree a fair rent payable back to the holding company for this to stack up as a FFP dodge?

What i don't understand is .. who have they bought it from ?

Don't they already own it ?

When they bought the club surely Villa Park was part of the deal if not who owns it ?
