MORTON HOUSE / Matt Southall's mate Alexander Javis now has BIG problems...... 22:36 - Oct 1 with 3635 viewsRAFCBLUE

Running a company at Companies House isn't as friendly as it used to be.

Back in the 1960's, it was simple. You filed something, Companies House filed it for you. Times have however moved on.

Dale Trust disclosed today that Alexander Jarvis is back in town.
https://www.daletrust.co.uk/2021/10/10010/

"Southall began by stating that he was contacted by Alexander Jarvis on behalf of Morton House with a view to a purchase of the shares. He said that he had known Jarvis for a few years and the pair had worked together before including at Charlton. Jarvis had told him that he had a deal that had “gone wrong” that might be of interest Southall.

Andrew Kirk Curran was Alexander's client. Now Matthew Southall is too.

Alexander's rise to prominence was on the cruise ships of the high seas but "Blackbridge" has a much darker side than the name suggests.

In 2017, Blackbridge Cross Borders Limited supported Chinese investors in a bid for Southampton.

http://www.insideworldfootball.com/2017/04/19/southamptons-210m-sale-chinese-inv

Big deal. Big money. Big commission for Jarvis.

No.

https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/09055077

Blackbridge Cross Borders Limited operates from a Liverpool letterbox address and was formed in May 2014.

It's net worth history is as follows:

March 2015: Net worth £100
May 2016: Net liability of £17,906 - 15 months loss of £18,906
May 2017: Net liability of £54,320 - Loss for year of £36,414
May 2018: Net liability of £56,106 - Loss for year of £1,786
May 2019: Net worth of £188 - Profit for the year £56,294

It hasn't bothered filing accounts since.

Five years - £88 of profit. Not exactly the "superstar" agent or financial intermediary portrayed.

In January 2021, Jarvis applied voluntarily for the company to be struck off.

In March 2021, that was suspended as the Registrar received an objection. This is almost unheard of.

Why would someone object to a company apparently worth £188?

Because in that article on Southampton, Jarvis was credited with:

"Alexander Jarvis, chairman of Blackbridge Cross Borders, a financial advisory firm specialising in sports deals and with a strong focus on Chinese football investment via its sports division, confirmed that should Lander fail to complete the deal then the Chinese investor appetite for Southampton is still very strong.

Jarvis would not name interested parties but said there is Hong Kong investment aside from Lander that has the money available and is in position to buy the club. Furthermore the alternative investors are able act quickly.

The sale price would be around the £210 million mark but could rise to £225 million."


The Southampton deal completed in August 2017. Lander bought 80%
https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/40928467

A £225 million deal brokered by a £188 company. AMAZING!

We've missed Alex's involvement over the last few weeks but thanks to Southall we know HE's really the one flogging the dead horse for Morton House.

I hope to God that Southall hasn't trusted Jarvis with his personal details, such as his Dubai hiding place, as Andrew Curran or Darrell Rose did or they will all over the world wide web.

"Gone wrong" is an understatement in the Dale Trust article for the scrutiny from authorities when you consider what luck Jarvis has brought to his clients so far.

He is to football investors what Jonah is to sailors.

Jarvis managed to make Andrew Curran and Darrell Rose famous on a national stage in 4 weeks.

Matthew Southall is a lot easier to find out about and there seems to be a lot of interesting stuff in the public domain about him.....

In the meantime - lets hope that "objection" to the Companies House strike-off of the £188 company, Blackbridge Cross Borders Limited isn't from one of the statutory authorities that get interested when significant money changes hands....

That MIGHT end up linking Curran, Rose, Southall, Jarvis, Swindon Town, Charlton Athletic and a whole of others in terms of football club misfeasance over the past 7 years.

After all it's Southall who has said to the Trust, Jarvis was involved at Charlton.....

But the new Chinese owners of second-tier English clubs Aston Villa, Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers will not find it easy to secure promotion to the top division.

Mr Jarvis says that these backers will need to invest significantly in players and coaches, while managing the expectations of the fans and trying to boost income and cover their financing costs. It is, he says, an exercise akin to “a monkey dancing on a razor blade”.


Then this:

https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/who-matt-southall-

"Tony Xia is ready to sell up after the club's failure to win promotion to the Premier League, according to the paper.

Xia is ready to "cut his losses", the publication suggests, after facing ‘severe Financial Fair Play challenges’ with the Villa Park outfit.

It comes after two seasons of failing to gain promotion back to the top flight.

Xia paid around £60million for Villa when he bought the club from Randy Lerner in 2016.

The report states that Xia will sell if he can recoup the money he paid for Villa."

Guess which dynamic duo brokered Chinese investors into Aston Villa and then Chinese investors out of Aston Villa?

Point for each.

Matt Southall is going to thoroughly regret taking Rochdale fans on.

Unless, of course, he has engaged a hit man.

Not that he would, of course.

I love the "involved in football" comment as if it conveys an immense knowledge that the average human cannot comprehend.

On the face of it, Southall has been in the background of murky deals at Bolton, Aston Villa, and Charlton. About 5 years experience.

All of us are "involved" in football. There will be many on here who have watched Dale for 30 or 40+ years.

That allows the refinement of a b*llshit detector when characters like Curran, Southall and Jarvis appear spouting their superior footballing involvement.

Talking of bullshit, here's one word that shysters always use, in a way to vaseline themselves into the building.

"Investor"

Whenever you hear that word your antennae should go through the roof.

The title “investors” always looks odd when random businessmen pop up in football. The word is used to soothe worried fans into thinking that a saviour come to invest, ie: put in, rather than to, as the word actually means in English: One who invests money to make a profit.

Not sure how Matthew Southall can call himself an "investor"

The Lancashire Evening Telegraph article on the Woolworths article made it clear he was handling stolen property for someone else to collect.

I believe the term is "fence"

He must know Faical Safouane or have had a relationships with Denise Valerie Courtnell if he's gone to work for a payroll company all the way from Dubai!
