    The sale of Barnsley FC - Alexander Jarvis story

    Alexander Jarvis of Blackbridge the financier who brokered the deal has been speaking out about rumours relating to his role in selling the club to Chien Lee.

    He says accusations of leaking information about the sale of the club to the media are untrue and no evidence was ever shown to his lawyers. He says that the new owners were simply trying to get out of paying his fees. When asked why he didn’t sue them he stated it would cost $1m to take them to a US court to sue for libel.

    He introduced Chien Lee to 8 different English football clubs running up to the deal to purchase Barnsley FC

    According to Jarvis the non disclosure agreement has now ended relating to the deal and more information will be revealed.

    He says Chien Lee is a good guy who will be a good custodian of the club but keeps bad company, adding karma will come to Conway.

    The claims by Conway that he cut off communication with Jarvis are also incorrect..... it was Jarvis who cut off communication with Conway due to comments he made at a meeting in London about Patrick Crynes health, adding “ he’s a bad guy who tried to do a deal with the owners son at half price when Mr Cryne died. He slowed down the deal to do this “

    Jarvis states he was in Beijing when accused of leaking information to the Barnsley Chronicle and a 2yr legal case followed for him to eventually get paid his fees.

    Conway cut communication with Jarvis because he was out of his depth.
    Jarvis also said "Cryne was very bitter and high on drugs ".
    I don't think Jarvis comes out of this very well at all.

    Hi Romared its nothing to do with loyalty, fairness yes loyalty no.
    Anyway its all about opinions and I would hope mine are as valid as somebody who have agendas to keep up.
    On another note I hope you're doing well after your recent surgary.Someone very close to me went through the same op.8 years ago and are now thriving.Times a great healer physically and mentally,you'll get there.Keep safe.

    I don't know enough abart this story to make any judgements.

    I am open minded and respect other people's views and opinions, not wishing to score points or cause arguments.

    Unless you know something more Bill you are not sharing with us we do not really know the context of the Jarvis remarks.

    Please enlighten us without any agenda to push.
