To some it may seem the rumor that Paul Allen is looking to buy Southampton FC (English Championship; division 2) has been put to rest. A spokesman for Allen has denied any interest in buying Southampton or any English club. It seems simple enough that if the spokesman says there is no interest, there is no interest. But the last time we saw that happen, it was a spokesman denying that Kroenke had any interest or intention to buy Arsenal. But soon after that, Kroenke ended up buying ITV's stake in the club. Could it be that a bid by Paul Allen is still in the wings?
