Moores’ bid to buy soccer club denied again – The San Diego Union-Tribune

Oh for three.

Former Padres owner John Moores has been rebuffed yet again in his quest to purchase a professional soccer team in Britain, this time with Nottingham Forest.

He and longtime business partner Charles Noell were close to finalizing a $61 million deal for an 80-percent stake in the storied club from England’s Championship, the de facto second division. They were supposed to complete the transaction in late December. Then it was Tuesday. Then there were reports Moores was on a plane to England and they would sign the papers a few days later. Then, it was before Saturday’s game.

Then, they were out.
