    Background info:

    Bob Kraft was rumoured to be interested in Villa around a year or so ago. Kraft has been more strongly attached, according to the papers, with an investment in, BUT NOT complete takeover of, Liverpool Murderers FC.

    Browns owner, Lerner, was seriously considering a bid for weeks now.

    Aston Villa is Birmingham's most successful and highest profile soccer club.

    Malcolm Glazer and his family, of course, control Manchester United.

    Should be interesting to see what happens. But Villa are a crappy team and need a serious amount of time and money spent on them to make them a successful purchase. It'll be interesting to see how he swaps his time between Browns and Villa. I wonder how Browns fans feel about this. I dont think Id be very happy if Kraft took over Liverpool, I should think owning one sports team would be time consuming enough.

    Actually it belongs here. Not only is there an NFL connection with this story, but a Patriots one as well.
