Michael Fialka still wants to buy Saints

Daily Echo: Michael Fialka Michael Fialka

MICHAEL Fialka has insisted his bid to buy Saints is still on.

Despite key members of the Pinnacle Group pulling out yesterday, the 32-year-old this morning said the deal had not collapsed.

“It’s all up in the air at the moment,” he told the Jewish Chronicle.

“The reality is that there are a few issues with the Football League. We’ve had a bit of a standoff as we would only consider a deal if the penalty was 10 points rather than 15.

“I need confirmation. Once it goes through then everyone will be happy.”

Fialka also revealed that, should the takeover go through, he would “end up with one third of the club and be the main director on a four-man board.”

The Football League has told the Daily Echo there is no truth in Fialka's latest claims of a potential 15 point deduction.

A spokesman once again reiterated that there is no threat of further point deductions.

Mr fialka has said he has a problem with the FL but the FL has no idea of what he is talking about?? 10 or 15 points deduction is not the problem now the problem now is we have no team and no manager all is falling apart and it's all down to Mr Fialka taken to long to do the deal, what I do not understand is he know when he started that there would be a deduction of points??

the following is an e-mail I recieved from the football league today. kinda shows that pinnacle were never really serious....

Dear Mr Root



Thank you for your email. Due to the volume of communications a standard response is necessary.



To clarify, the sporting sanction, i.e. points deduction has been made in accordance with League regulations, which are put in place by the clubs themselves – The League merely administers them. An appeal is allowed with a specified period.



When a club suffers an insolvency event, e.g. administration, their share in The League is liable to be withdrawn under the terms of our Articles of Association. In other words their membership comes to an end. However, because we are in the business of trying to keep clubs alive, the Board operates a policy within the provisions of the Articles which suspends the withdrawal of a club’s share in order to give them a second chance – this is entirely in keeping with the law of the land.



Recent arbitration proceedings confirm The Football League has the right to impose conditions on a company that sees to join The League in this way. These conditions reflect the need to protect the integrity of the competition by ensuring that no club should be able to gain an advantage over its rivals by not paying its debts. Owners of football clubs will change over time, but the ‘club’ remains the same. It is the club which secures a competitive advantage from wiping out debt through insolvency proceedings, and therefore, it is only right that it is the club, regardless as to the identity of the new owners, that is made subject to any conditions.



The League has a responsibility to ensure all League clubs start the season - we would also clarify that throughout our discussions no conditions other than a waiver in regard to sporting sanctions have ever been raised with us as a major issue.

I do hope that anyone planning to put their name and money to our club doesn't read the comments of some of us Saints supporters. I have to say if it was me planning to part with a small fortune to rescue the club and I suddenly got turned upon i would stick 2 fingers up and walk away. I was one of the money collectors on the final day of the season and some of the fans had a problem putting 5 Quid in lets not forget Pinnicle parted with 5oo,ooo. (Lets also not forget some people had a problem even buying a ticket)!!!

We have lost 2 players in pinicles exclusivity period but do you honestly think they would have stayed in League 1 with championship and Premiership football on offer?

How have some Saints fans turned on Matty too? I'd still love him to be our chairman, he's Southampton through and through. We'd probably already be regulars in League 1 without Matts genius on the field so you could kiss the memorys of a F.A cup final away.

It was Tony Lynham who told us there was only 1 backer which has now been revealed as a consortium and it looks like Fialka isn't the one thats pulled out from pinnicle so be greatful he's trying to save the club! 3 consortiums are better than 2.

This deal will go to the wire because the more chance banks have of losing their money completely the more chance it will be sold cheaper. It seems that considering most of us only know what the Echo chooses to tell us, we all seem to have a huge opinion base on anger and frustration. If we do get docked extra points, depending on how many we could already be looking at League 2 football next year! Does anyone trust the crooked football league, lets ask The once proud club called Luton shall we?

Glad i got that off my chest.

Leave the poor guy alone. Fry has clearly done his own homework and cleared Pinnacle's group - he would never have allowed them the period of exclusivity if they didn't prove they had the funds and Le Tiss would not have associated with them either if he didn't think they were serious contenders.

At the end of the day The Echo has to stop being cunning and creating negative vibes just so to sell papers. Pinnacle in my eyes are the only ones who have the sense to get a football-wise person like Le Tiss on board to make all the football decisions whilst they provide the cash. It's a good group and setup - lets stop being negative towards them - they could be saving our club!

The Echo needs to start supporting any group who wants to but the Saints!
I'm waiting for a headline that states some supportive words and motivation to encouragement!

MLT said on Sky Sports yesterday evening that there we other issues from the FL that Pinnacle were not happy with. He said they we prepared to take the -10 points. He said it was other things they had to agree to.He would not give details.That is why they pulled. Now the FL say it was only about the -10 points.

Fialka is clearly a publicity seeking scammer.

He has no cash. He lives at home with mummy and daddy, and his business empire made 24k profit last year (which probably just about pays for his computer games and comics). He's misled MLT, the administrator and probably Tony Lynam all the way through the takeover.

He's been rumbled - I can't believe the press and TV still give him air time.

Lets leave this loser to go back home to live with mummy and daddy for the rest of his life and get on with hoping someone serious buys the club.

"The reality is that there are a few issues with the Football League. We’ve had a bit of a standoff as we would only consider a deal if the penalty was 10 points rather than 15."

This is what I've thought before, the right of appeal they were asking for wasn't for the -10 for going into admin, more for the right to appeal against the additional -10 or 15 they would get for exiting admin without a CVA.

Should havepicked the phone up too Ken Bates!

Don't think it's fair to have a go at him! He's obviously a businessman on an adventure.....but he can't blame us for being confused by the supposed worth of hundreds of millions when in actual fact it turned out to be a group of investors and not just one! Also, Pinnacle have withdrawn along with the main backers behind the bid so how can Fialka possibly still be in talks with Mark Fry?! He has no chance surely?

micky still wants to buy saints? well i still wnat to buy saints - but it seems the one thing we share is a lack of £8m to pay the debts and £6m to fund the club moving forward.

Whilst it is easy to berate PGthey remain the only bidder to commit money.

WHilst other grops are talking - I think we shall see this drag on beyond Friday.
The administrator wants to sell the club and has sold two players worth £2.2m. Surely this gives us enough money to fund wages for July, as the debtors stand to receive more for a "going" concern.
Allowing we have paid down part of the Overdraft, players are now out of contract so wage bills are reduced, the club and we have revenue generating games coming up - if Fry can steer us through the close season we appear a more saleable item. we can only spend money we have in the curreent account so we must trade within our means for the next three months.

Regards the league- the only issue we have is a further penalty - for not coming out of the Admin, but it can be argused that we have not gained an advantage by writing of debt. The administrator is legally bound to operate the company on a sound footing.

If Fry is connvinced the clubs is not finacially viable then he must report to the creditors and agreed a winding up process. Buut we could in theory be in administration for 12 months?

I have a feeling this will run on. Surely Wotte's contract extension has been approved by Fry, and tbh if the club was being wound up on friday - he would have toddled off - why take a job for 3 days?

it just doesnot make sense

JESUS CHRIST! is there anything some of you wont forgive. Talk about good natured, its a bloody good job half the people on here arent buying the club or we really would be out of business.

Go right back to start of this FARCE and read the statements from Lynam and MLT and more recently Fialka. Nothing they have said or done has ANY continuity AT ALL.

1, How many wealthy backers were there. First 4, then 1, then a group or wealthy family, now none.

2, What are they worth. Firstly a PERSONAL net worth of 'several hundred million'. Now, we don't know but people with 000's millions could have just bought 1st and battled the league in court afterwards.

3, 'the ten point deduction is not a deal breaker', isn't it? no where in any other statement has anyone involved been able to explain anything other than use the phrase 'other issues' - If their not buying us, it won't matter to tell us what they are then and treat us with a little dignity and intelligence?

4, They tell us that the backers' identity will be revealed after the take over then Mickey Mouse goes on Sky sports news! laughable! then Lynam tells us he planned that afterwards. Hands up if you were born yesterday!

This is not how serious business works fellow fans, this is classic making it up because we are miles out of our depth behaviour. Think Branson, Sugar, hell even the Glazers have more PR skill than this...

They have just spent 5 weeks of our lives NOT buying the club and ultimately NOT apologizing for it but hey ' they did their best '. NO they didnt, they realised it was going to take longer to make a profit with the deductions th FL are allowed to impose so they f****d off. THATS THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT, THATS BUSINESS.

Did they pull out because they love the club and they want to see it progress, no, didnt think so....MLT needs to start polishing that halo.

agree with comments, but where is that going to get us, other than probably distressing you a little. I still believe MLT was duped into this and will not hear a bad word to say about him, he cares about this club and has proven this time and time again. I agree that the business actions of these guys arent perfect but then when as anything saints been involved in not been chaotic, stressful and **** right embarrassing. I would prefer one of the othr bidders to buy the club but if it is this guy I will back him 100% and would hope that everyone else follows. I love Southampton Football Club and want nothing more to be able to sing my heart out for the club next season, as mentioned previously if it means having sloth, elephant man or a female in charge I couldnt give a ****.

Point taken and i dont doubt he cares an awful lot about the club and its fans. Sometimes however, it just isnt enough to say 'never mind, they all meant well and MLT is a legend'. Not when it can be alleged that the incompetence thats been on show starts to impact on our percentage chance of staying in business after over 100 years!

I just think 'hands up, we're sorry' or even 'here are the real reasons for our last minute capitulation' wouldn't go amiss before we all let them off with a pat on the back for trying.......

The simple truth is we dont really know the reasons why the Pinnacle Group has withdrawn.

What both parties have admitted is that it is not about the 10 point deduction, and really that is all we know.

Regarding Pinnacle Group. Again, we know nothing about them other than what little has been discovered about Michael Fialka by obtaining copies of company records of his two businesses.

It could simply be that Michael and three others (with MLT being the fifth member of the board) were merely the designated representatives of a larger group. Perhaps their money was coming from the Jewish business community or something. I'm certainly not suggesting that is the case, but there are certainly many viable possibilities for Michael Fialka and the Pinnacle group to actually have the money.

If it turns out that Michael was just after his 15 minutes of fame then it is a great shame as it may well have cost us our club, but I for one will be reserving judgement until after someone buys the club, and once the FACTS begin to emerge, rather than in ignorance and OPINION based on a few articles and chinese whispers.

I hope we find a buyer, and I hope that buyer has the interests of our club at heart as opposed to making a quick buck at our expense.

*remains faithful*

I rekon this could be a blockbuster, it could start in maybe the mid 90's and move through to the current day, a rise and fall kind of film, but it would then centre around the Lowe takeover and and really concentrate on the past 6 months circus performance, what a great movie!

Disappointment

Surman, who began his career with the South Coast club, also views the collapse of Saints legend Le Tissier's takeover as a major setback.

"It is another disappointment," he added. "Everyone's hopes were high when they heard Matt Le Tissier was fronting a consortium.

"I feel sorry for him because he has tried as hard as he can to get someone to take over the club, get some money in and get some structure back.

"I think he fully believed that was going to happen."

What a brilliant idea! If we all raid our jars we could form a consortium and get Tony 'Tycoon' Lynam to front us. Do we all live with our parents? That seems to be a pre-requisite for having Tony the Tycoon work on our behalf. I'm sure we would clear Mark Fry's 'fit and proper' people tests.
