Let's Play! ... It's Fantasy Villa Owner.

Post by Chris Harte on Tue Oct 27, 2015 1:28 pm

So Randy Lerner, despite the millions potentially to be made for a future owner of the club, cannot offload it on someone else.

There's been talk of people having exclusivity but failing to complete; of other instances where the club failed the due diligence (is that even possible?); I even heard a theory today that geographical location is the problem - rich people want to live in London.

The way I see it, with no mega-rich (by Sheikh standards) Villa fans, we have only one option left - a consortium of rich Villa fans to get together and buy the club.

But who?

I don't have time to do this now but I propose, just for fun (and let's face it, it'd be more fun that watching the Villa at the moment), that we get together a list of rich Villains. From actors, popstars, politicians and violinists, there is a whole host of wealthy Villains out there.

Please state their name, where they got their wealth, and what they are worth, quoting and linking sources (Times Rich List, for instance, no guesses of our own please).

I guess we need to display a list:

Name & Occupation............ Worth................. Source (Link)
Nigel Kennedy (Musician)        $5M US (approx. £3M)  http://richestcelebrities.org/richest-rock-stars/nigel-kennedy-net-worth/
Prince William (Silver Spoon)  $40M US (approx. £26M) http://richestcelebrities.org/richest-royals/prince-william-net-worth-wiki/
Ozzy Osbourne (Musician) $220M US (approx. £143M) http://www.therichest.com/celebnetworth/celeb/musician/ozzy-osbourne-net-worth/

I've started with the most obvious one.

Nigel Kennedy = 3.26 million pounds.

Just a bit of fun because Prince William would not be allowed to make a partisan investment.

Prince William = 26.1 million pounds

I can't find a current net worth for Doug, but I know he had a net worth of 20 million pounds approx. in 2003, and he received 28 million approx. from the sale of his shares to Randy Lerner. A conservative 30/40 million pounds would probably be a fair guess.

Oh dear, we ain't doing very well, are we?

I noticed that Tom Hanks is worth $350M (according to that website listed above) but I refuse to list him on the principle that his life will supposedly not be complete until his been to Villa Park, but has never been.

Anyone know if Ozzy Osbourne, or any members of Duran Duran or UB40 are Villa fans?

Astro of UB40 is a Villa fan but most of them are noses, especially the Campbell brothers.
Any how, I don't think thot UB40 have much net worth, most of the money being spent on legal bills deciding which group following the split can rightfully call themselves UB40.

One of the Weasley twins is a Villa fan, he must have a few bob.

There's less money in this musician malarkey than I ever imagined. Very Happy

Ozzy Osbourn's wiki says he's Villa, elsewhere he's listed at $220M.
