Laurence Bassini has agreed to pay damages and apologise to agent Sky Andrew over comments he made following the sale of Marvin Sordell to Bolton Wanderers.

The former Watford owner claimed Mr Sordell's agent demanded a "substantial sum" to extend the contract of the striker at the Hornets during an interview in the Watford Observer, which was published on February 17 2012.

Mr Bassini claimed a few months before Sordell's sale to Bolton, Mr Andrew "came to see us and said the only way Marvin would sign a contract is if he [the agent] received a substantial sum of money and that was never going to happen.

"Marvin has done nothing wrong in this whatsoever but his agent wanted a fee to facilitate a new contract and he told me he would do what he did with Sol Campbell and let his contract run down, so that was that."

Mr Andrew issued proceedings against Mr Bassini and stressed the allegations implied he put his own interests ahead of those of his client.

The sports and entertainment agent, who has Frank Bruno and Campbell among his clients, believed Mr Bassini's comments suggested he was seeking to elicit a bribe or other unwarranted payment from Watford so Sordell would extend his contract.

Mr Andrew felt this was defamation of his character and "particularly damaging" as seeking an unwarranted payment to facilitate a contract would be a criminal offence under the UK’s anti-bribery laws, as well as a breach of the FA's Code of Professional Conduct.

A statement was read out at the High Court of Justice Queen's Bench Division this morning. This included comments from Mr Andrew's advocate Korieh Duodu and also Hannah Ready, who was Mr Bassini's advocate.

In the statement, Mr Duodu said: "Mr Bassini does not accept that the words bear that meaning. He states that he intended to convey that the claimant had legitimately asked for his agent’s fee in order to facilitate a new contract.

"Mr Bassini has nevertheless agreed to join in this statement in open court in order to set the record straight and apologise to Mr Andrew for what he said to the Watford Observer.

"The true position is that Mr Andrew never requested any sort of facilitation payment in relation to Marvin Sordell’s contract extension. He negotiated firmly but fairly on behalf of his client, and would have been legally and contractually entitled to a commission on any payments made to Mr Sordell.

"Mr Andrew has painstakingly built a reputation as an honest and ethical football agent, in an industry which is much maligned and criticised. He has never acted in any way corruptly in relation to football transfers.

"Mr Bassini has agreed, as part of the settlement of these proceedings, to join in this statement and apologise to Mr Andrew. Among other terms of redress, he has also agreed not to repeat the words complained of. On that basis, Mr Andrew is content that these proceedings have achieved their purpose and can now be brought to a conclusion."

Mr Bassini has agreed to pay the agent a confidential sum of money in "commensurate damages", make a public apology, undertake not to repeat the allegations and pay Mr Andrew’s legal costs.

In the statement, Mr Bassini’s advocate said: "My Lord, I agree with everything Mr Duodu has said. It was never Mr Bassini’s intention to convey the allegations of which complaint is made or to say anything derogatory about the claimant. He does not dispute and never intended to suggest that Mr Andrew put his own interests before those of his client. He apologises to Mr Andrew sincerely and unreservedly for any contrary and unintended impression that was given."

Mr Andrew said: "This is a very pleasing result and I am delighted that this action has been brought to a successful conclusion. Football agents often get a bad name and I have worked hard to ensure that all my dealings are ethical and professional. These false allegations could have seriously damaged my reputation."

Winning is one thing, getting money out of this bankrupt clown is another.
Hopefully this will be the first of many lawsuits he loses, including WFC, the Football League, the Russo's and all the other people or companies he's ripped off. Most of all HMRC, and then a lengthy spell with HMP, please.

Congratulations to Sky for proving what a nasty little t*rd this bankrupt ripoff merchant really is !

The entire Baz episode is a complete mess, we are so lucky to have Pozzos as owners now. GT probably knows an awful lot more than he has ever let on, indeed, his silence during the Baz era was deafening. I can only think he stayed on as long as he did to save the club from certain doom and as soon as he knew Pozzos were for real resigned to prompt the takeover. The "Good Lord" just wanted out ASAP he didn't give two hoots about Baz's suitability as long as he got his money out and washed his hands.

I just hope that once the FL make their decision (which hopefully will not penalise the current ownership) we can then draw a line under the Baz farce and move forward...and then enjoy the Baz sideshow as "good sport"!

Just hope they don't take advantage of the fact that we have a 10 point cushion for a play-off place and so dish out a 10 point penalty which would push us down to 5th but importantly still in a play-off place in the hopes that we won't make too much of a fuss about it.
It would be a travesty but it does seem that certain people including the Football League powers that be seem to have it in for us at the moment and this would be a perfect opportunity to dish it out with minimal chance of any comeback. On the otherhand they may rather want to be rid of us so a hefty fine would help swell their coffers and hopefully we will be out of this league come the end of the season and hence would no longer be a problem for them as despite their claims of changing the foreign loan rules there is is by no means a guarantee that FIFA will be prepared to ratify it.

Oh sh*t there goes the charabagne! Poor old Bas, there was always a curiously sulphuric smell whenever I saw him glad handing with all the great and good in the Upper Louse Stand. There was a sense of a wheedling, 'look at me' character who needed people to like and admire him. If we allow ourselves to be taken in by the facade of respectability and good intent we'll always be let down when the truth emerges. Let's just hope the Pozzos don't high tail it outta the Vic if this situation continues to fester.

It is not a leak FFS, it's just an answer to the question posed that do the club know when the FL will give verdict?Where's the leak? The date?! And ok if a process has a no appeal, Im Sure no court will over turn. But I remain confident the precedent is observed and until Friday what's the point of speculating?

Okay Luton Down. I understand where you are now coming from. Not at first clear to me as I was not at the Q&A session. Thank you but I still feel that should the FL not have followed the rules of natural justice then an appeal to the courts is a possibilty. In many walks of life Administrative Tribunals can review unjust decisions taken by government departments etc. You are right though. No point in speculating.

Just hope they don't take advantage of the fact that we have a 10 point cushion for a play-off place and so dish out a 10 point penalty which would push us down to 5th but importantly still in a play-off place in the hopes that we won't make too much of a fuss about it.
It would be a travesty but it does seem that certain people including the Football League powers that be seem to have it in for us at the moment and this would be a perfect opportunity to dish it out with minimal chance of any comeback. On the otherhand they may rather want to be rid of us so a hefty fine would help swell their coffers and hopefully we will be out of this league come the end of the season and hence would no longer be a problem for them as despite their claims of changing the foreign loan rules there is is by no means a guarantee that FIFA will be prepared to ratify it.
Good points but they do have precedents to observe, ie QPR WHU. Both had third party dealing in transfer deals.
Well we will know Friday, and what's more it will be the final say as there's no appeal. Facist rule!
Please can you refresh my memory - what punishment did QPR and WHU get? Thanks
Fines no point deductions.
I'm not sure if the fine was actually suspended in West Hams case??
We'd take that!
Yeah, but you forget that West Ham are a big club, QPR lambs in the big world and we are " Little " Watford who dare not be allowed to want bigger things in a reputable way, thus the FL must stop them at all costs...............

I know that mate, but not even the 52 old **** at FL would surely dare dole out different punishments for same crimes? Anyway, we will know soon, and I really hope I'm right this time!
It was 2 years ago ? they done QPR dementia would have set in with those old croaks by now.

As I understand it, the West Ham and QPR cases weren't heard by the FL, so neither should create a precedent to be followed in our case.

Stuart Timperley, who's sat on FL disciplinary panels in the past and is on the board, sounded pretty confident about the chances of there not being a serious punishment when he spoke at the fans forum.

QPR were certainly in the FL and it was they who ruled not the PL but surely the FL and FA have parallel ideas on this? Who knows?
I think Timperley / Ashton connection will hold sway. I hope...!

QPR were in the FL at the time the offence was committed, but the case was brought by the FA, possibly because their promotion to the PL might have taken them outside the FL's jurisdiction by the time it was completed or a punishment had to be imposed.
The FL and FA may have similar rules, but they wouldn't be bound by each other's precedents.

A few corrections
1) It's Ashcroft, not Ashton.
2) Lord Ashcroft did not intoduce anyone to anyone. Bassini was the only person who came to him offering to buy his shares in the club to whom he was prepared to sell.
3) Lord Ashcroft has made a loss as a result of his involvement with the club. On several occasions it was an injection of his money (including when the Russos were about to force it into administration) that kept the club afloat.
4) Graham Taylor resigned as chairman a couple of months before it was certain that the takeover would happen.

Er, not by the account I read - the Salad Boys are claiming against Bassini over money they claim they loaned him to buy the club, Bassini is claiming the money was not a loan. So, on the face of it Bassini might have been a front for the Russo's in their battle with Ashcroft and Simpson.

Like most I hope this all turns into an interesting sideshow as the 'Orns march onwards and upwards after the announcement due on Friday.

Tony Blair and his awful money grabbing wife not greedy eh? And Ashcroft though uninterested in club saved us, whether your socialist sensibilities are offended or not, and GT was one of parties who accepted Bas. He walked later.
Labour took us into two winless wars, left us skint, sold the nations Gold, opened the flood gates etc etc.
I'm neither party, they are all traitorous scum that have no place on our forums.
Mate you know Blair was as much a socialist PM as Bas was a legitimate owner of a football club.

Anyway, back to the thread, I remember GT once said he'd like to line up all players' agents against a wall and shoot the lot of them. Baz's big mistake was singling out just one and making it personal.

If we get a ten point pen, it will be ridiculous. Who will suffer, Baz? No, he couldn't give a toss. So what would it achieve? One ca only assume then that should we get a points deduction, that it's designed to stop us getting promoted. Why would the FL want to do that? The common perception seems to be because we registered loads of loan players with them. I don't think realistically they would be that vindictive tbh, and it would be so transparent.
But let's say they do. Ok, bring it on. Just imagine how much sweetermit will be when we still get automatic promotion anyway, cos we will, 10 point deduction or no 10 point deduction.

Er, not by the account I read - the Salad Boys are claiming against Bassini over money they claim they loaned him to buy the club, Bassini is claiming the money was not a loan. So, on the face of it Bassini might have been a front for the Russo's in their battle with Ashcroft and Simpson. Like most I hope this all turns into an interesting sideshow as the 'Orns march onwards and upwards after the announcement due on Friday.
I have to admit to being taken in by the surgeon connection, it leant Bas an air of respectability.
Did anyone at the club check out the surgeon's credentials, was he a surgeon, did he actually exist?

And it goes to show how liberal and diverse our coach is..Vince is on it! Lol
And it's now full, what a shame, was hoping Harry's bar and ESH would be joining us but they would have enjoyed themselves too much, so just as well. Maybe next time .
I genuinly hope you guys have a great day. I just can't see the point of singing on a coach, no one can hear you. For me it's rather akin to a child that keeps crying even though nobody comes.... futile. Each to their own though. LD, please don't take offence.
Some parent you are!

Why would I take offence Harry? It's mandatory we sing on our coach, so we have 57 people go into ground and these new songs get lift off.
Whatever people think of 'noise' the players love it, and we need to start changing the passive, Sunday afternoon feel to the Vic.
I do appreciate it's not for everyone, but all the more reason for like minded souls to have their own patch.
I know it's not only youngsters, as myself and Boosey are sadly not that any more, And i know of a 65 Year old neighbour that would like to be among atmosphere.
I've only ever got annoyed twice on this forum Harry, where people have very deliberately twisted words to suit their own agenda.
So you carry on

I am a quiet, reserved sort (yes, really) who goes to a match, groans, cheers and so on. But I have never been able to join in the songs and chants. Why? Dunno---just the way I am. But I love the songs and chants just the same, and am perfectly happy if those around me join in. It is the moaning minnies that annoy me---the ones who go to the match to whings and criticise. So good luck to all of you who make the noise and atmosphere. But I promise to try to join in--!

If we get a ten point pen, it will be ridiculous. Who will suffer, Baz? No, he couldn't give a toss. So what would it achieve? One ca only assume then that should we get a points deduction, that it's designed to stop us getting promoted. Why would the FL want to do that? The common perception seems to be because we registered loads of loan players with them. I don't think realistically they would be that vindictive tbh, and it would be so transparent.
But let's say they do. Ok, bring it on. Just imagine how much sweetermit will be when we still get automatic promotion anyway, cos we will, 10 point deduction or no 10 point deduction.
Liking your positivity and spirit Neil !
would rather do things the easy way though and have automatic wrapped up with games to spare.Fingers crossed guys for a fair outcome to BAZ,S mess.

Fair play. It's all a bit new to me as well. But I've often thought this ground is like a bloody morgue, so I'm just trying to shake off the self conscious chains and let go. The beer helps!

Being a natural pessimist, I expect a points deduction. But the good thing is, I am often wrong, and I look forward to the pleasure of being proved wrong. I, too, will be glad when it's over.

From what was said confidentially at the Supporters Trust AGM a few weeks ago, a points deduction seems unlikely.
