Laurence Bassini - Telegraph claims he's bought Birmingham subject to EFL approval (p8)

  • Remember, Bassini was going to ask for Charlton to be wound up a few months ago.

    That was laughed away by TS and it is now forgotten.

    I suspect that what Bassini wants is his name in the papers/twitter again.

    He has no intention of buying Brum, probably doesn't have the money either but so what.


    I think the story about being funded by Sullivan is pretty accurate. So might not have the money himself but looks like a dodgy way to get Sullivan Birmingham is in the works. And of course Bassini gets to be a 'player' for a bit. 
    Unfortunately, I fear you are right. People I have spoken to also think the Sullivan story has legs. In which case with the EFL tests as they stand he is home and hosed, as he has no current actual criminal convictions, and can pass the new “tougher” Source and Sufficiency Test with Sullivan’s money. 

    Just another reason why we need an Independent Football Regulator…
  • Rather have Bassini than someone who plays guitar and wears sunglasses....









    Irony alert
    She was playing his banjo string.
  • But if sullivan wants a beard to do a back door purchase why of all people choose Bassini?

    Someone who will draw attention and unwanted scrutiny when he could pick just about anyone else.

    Sounds far too far fetched.
    Fair point. Maybe cos he wants someone to muck up quick. Bassini will default very quickly you’d imagine.

    That was my feeling too, but actually I've heard others say pretty much what @cafcfan1990 said in answer to you. 

    Personally I don't even get why Sullivan would even want anything to do with Brum any more but these people live on a  different planet

    In a nutshell really. There must be hundreds of businessmen less likely to draw attention to a dodgy takeover than Bassini.

    The final company is listed as Bassini Parsno lettings. Dr Shirin Parsno is listed in the group of directors for the larger company but not listed in the company with her name attached. Seems a bit odd. A quick Google has her listed as a dentist in kensington. Not sure what relevance she has but just something I noticed and thought was strange

    DO NOT OPEN THAT LINK if you're on a work device
    Pretty sure honourable members of parliament have opened worse whilst sat in the green leather seats....

    I'm intrigued now. 
    I tagged my Birmingham supporting mate, who wasn’t impressed haha! You’re not missing much, other than Big Laurence isn’t so big 🤣

    If he’s got the money, they will have to swallow it,

    Yes, we clocked her. The Head of Dossiers immediately started us looking for a possible connection to our well known former  owner, the “dental accountant” Craig Freeman. 🤣

    But the trail went cold. Not a bad shout though, eh?

    Theyll have to find it first....

    That’s an odd list of people - no obvious wealth, no football backgrounds for most of them. It’s like the names have been pulled out of a hat.

  • Wtf 
    a bluffer 
    is he saying David Sullivan backing him ?
    are you allowed to be involved in two clubs (I presume he’s still involved at West Ham )

    he’s putting in £10m but getting a loan for it 

    He’s about as fit and proper as half the shit we’ve had playing for us over this shithouse period in our history 
  • Absolutely crazy interview. 
  • massive grift 
  • This will collapse. I still maintain there's no way the EFL approve him
  • Even hearing him speak makes my skin itch - looked him up on Wiki - twice bankrupt, and the judge’s comments about him tell you all you need to know…..
  • It's amazing how these people just rock up, commission loads of legal work, do a load of meeting & greeting and DD and then just end up being bunked off (as I imagine this will end), in schemes that were doomed to failure from the start.

    I'm annoyed when I miss out on a discount code and you've got people running up the till on lawyers and financial advisors for what may as well be imaginary deals!
  • It makes you wonder why Sullivan is using him to use his money. Surely Sullivan knows his reputation and I assume if he gets in at Brum, Sullivan will be leaving West Ham
  • This will collapse. I still maintain there's no way the EFL approve him
    Actually scrap that, if he's not going to be on the board of directors (as he said), then does he need to pass the OADT?

    Yes - it’s an owners and directors test, not just directors

    Sullivan holds >=10% of WHUFC doesn't he?  That precludes him from controlling 10% or more of any other English football club
    If he's sold his stake in the irons we'd have heard about it

    Also 99.99% of everything that fat twat with the tiny cock says proves to be 110% bullshit
    Plenty money on EFL approving that fat twat with the tiny cock as a club owner or director - the EFL proves over and over again it can't organise a piss up in a brewery nor does it care one flying frig for the integrity of the game.
