Canadian Net Giant Shows Owls Interest

Talk on the Owls' takeover front has gone quiet in recent weeks but technology giant Jeff Mallett has been linked with a buyout of the club in today's papers.

Mallett already has links with Championship rivals Derby County, which are believed to be more 'behind the scenes' than actually pumping cash into the Pride Park club.

Wednesday chairman Lee Strafford has already been over to America for discussions about the possibility of investment, and it's believed the Owls supremo has held initial discussions with Mallett.

The multi-millionaire already has stakes in the Vancouver Whitecaps and San Francisco Giants baseball team, and is thought to also have a love for the English football game, shown by his involvement with the Rams.

Sources close to Mallett have today revealed to 'The People' newspaper that the business tycoon likes to get any kind of deal done quickly, so expect further updates sooner rather than later...

BFL smiling again! But I thought you didn't rate your chances for next year. I don't think we should get excited by any takeover talk, it's always turned out to be ********* in the past.

Then again we did'nt sell enough season tickets before the first cut off point, this could be a ploy to make rush out and buy them, only to disappoint us once again just like last year with the geoff sheard saga.

I wondered how long it would be b4 the ****wasp we know as PFL would rear his fowl smelling head. Bit of advice my friend, I do use that term extremely loosely by the way, concentrate on your own clubs problems b4 you come on here shouting your mouth off. You dont have parachute payments to fall back on anymore and you have a manager that doesnt really want to be there.
