As I said, many will see it as postive.
But then don't complain if a Super League eventually becomes established, if games are moved to America or Asia and 3pm Saturday games become a rarity owing to global media demands.
It's correct to say Americans are protective of their investments, but there is , or may will be, a price to pay in the long term.
The economics are well understood but to lose the feeling of being a community club would be a real shame.
It's understood that many won't care if we claw a mid table finish each season.
To potentially lose the soul of the club to achieve such an objective could be a heavy price to pay.
I accept this may be a minority view but this is supposed to be a forum for debate.

Personally, I don't think any of that can happen. Were we not one of the most vocal clubs in opposition to any idea of a super league, despite our owners.

I could see us getting more exposure in the States and a few pre-season tours.

I remember, when CPFC 2010 took over, it was clear that they did it just to save the club. The other thing that was clear was that they would not sell the club to a foreign investor that did not have the best interests of the club at heart, they said it and as far as I can see, 11 years on, they lived up to that.

On losing the soul of the club, I don't think that anyone would be a fan or supporter and not be concerned about that. It is always a worry for a club like ours in the top flight.

However, what I would say is, that it is the supporters that make this a "Community Club" not the owners. We have a long history and recently, we owe a lot to that protest outside Lloyds. Things like that set a tone and we we're also lucky enough to have fans with cash to save the club and since then we have kept who we are as a club together.

We hope whoever owns the club, they get what we are about and love the club, not just run it as a commercial entity but the financial reality to being in the Premier League is foreign ownership. It's a global brand and as such, would not exist without global money.

We can only hope, we get it right as a club, so it is a worry. I would always rather be the club we are than stay in the Premiership but I think on that scale, we are doing more than alright.

Long may that continue....

I don't think that it works that way as you can't issue shares to the major shareholders without offering them to the smaller shareholders too

Therefore you think % shareholding from all the shareholders will go to the new shareholder and the main 4 will hold less than 18% each? Thinking on this I thought maybe they’d want 3 to equal 51% to make decisions easier, although legally up to now all 3 had to agree. Those 3 totalled 54%.

With Textor's 18% valued at 87.5 mil, that means somebody reckons the club's worth 450 mil or more. There's no way it's worth that.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Who is saying Textor has 18%? This is surely new money to buy new shares not existing shares, therefore all existing shareholders will have had their holding reduced as a percentage of the whole. It's a question of what are the new percentage holdings of the 4 directors?

The Guardian report on this indicated "close to 18%" and seemed to be suggesting he was pretty much an equal partner along with the other 3. If the £90m figure is correct, I would have thought he would want to be treated as an equal partner for that kind of investment.

I would think he has to buy some of the debt as well? And perhaps match some of the funds paid in by other owners.

His investment will be a mixture of equity and loans and not just shares

Good point

Without doing any sums I suspect we may then be already relatively close to the limit on new funds available for transfers if a certain amount has been set aside for the stand.

If we were indeed lowballing Blackburn for Armstrong at 12 million perhaps that is more or less what is left in the immediate kitty.

just to help with some numbers

ANNUAL TOTAL WAGE BILL FOR

Wickham £3,360,000
Cahill £6,480.000
Sakho £6,240,000
Dann £3,840,000
Van Aanholt £5,280,000
Hennessey £3,360,000

so just on those players, the club will have saved circa £28,560,00 a year in wages,If you look at the players that have come in it appears that their contracts have a higher element of pay linked to performances and appearances

Hungry rather than fat and lazy. Oh and unfit, or never fit.
