Takeaway king takeover on menu

We`ve had Nigerians, South Africans and Yanks so why not a Kuwaiti? The latest update to the grand takeover plan has led us back on the Middle Eastern trail to Saddam Hussein`s takeover target. A Kuwaiti newspaper revealed today that Nasser Al-Kharafi, 65, who built his 8.13bn fortune with exclusive franchise deals across the Middle East for Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut, Wimpy and TGI Fridays, as well as a huge construction empire could be the main man in NE1. He is now the world's 48th richest man. A source commented:

'He cannot comment on any deal because he has signed the confidentiality agreements which binds all interested parties. But he has the money to make it work.'

I guess the credit crunch couldn't have come at a worse time!

At least we got rid of Jiminez. Next out? Wise and Vetere.

As a City fan I have loved the banter with you guys for many years. I can't hear any banter now. Come on back. Visit us at Vital Man City if this is too painful. We remember how proud you are even if your club has lost its way.
