Enough is enough. Parish no doubt has cemented his place in club history as the savior of the club and has been instrumental in the success over the past decade. The academy and the new stand plan will continue to move the club forward.
However, his finances are extremely limited. When minority owners, who have a ton of money are frustrated, that says something. Clearly, Dougie can find and develop talent. We just canít keep the talent in the club. Imagine a club with Zaha, Gallagher, Eze, A1B, Olise, and Doucoure. That is not all that expensive. Nowhere close to the big six budgets but probably just as competitive. The fact is our day will NEVER come with our current ownership model.
Itís time for The Chairman to dilute his stake and relinquish control of the finances. If we had modest investment we could be a major player in the Prem.
Our combined net worth of ownership is 5.5 Billion. Harris, Blitzer and Textor could fund the last few pieces of a contending club. It can be done. The problem is none of these guys have a majority stake. If they did, our outcomes would be different.

Oh dear

2 of our shareholders want out of the club and the 3rd appears to have financial problems.

Parish has done a great job of keeping the club together and our finances are sound.

You can only say sack the board when there is a well funded white knight in the wings ready to take over and spend.

Until then as much as I am pissed off about this transfer window Parish is a safe pair of hands.

Look down the road at Charlton a well run PL club under Curbishley then it all went wrong and they were sold and re-sold to different shysters and ended up in league 1.

It's clear to me that we have very little transfer money so any purchases will have to be funded by sales. It's NOT clear to me that parish is blocking the major shareholders from spending.

There isn't a choice here because I don't see any alternative owner.

Something doesnít add up in terms of investment in Palace.
Football has never attracted greater investment, whether itís from America or the Middle East.
Palace are a stable club who have been in the Premier League for a decade, have valuable playing assets, a brand new state of the art academy and a London base .
The ground needs investment / refurbishment, but that wouldnít seem to be a deal breaker in terms of attracting investors.
If our current American investors genuinely want out (as at least one of them has reputedly for a number of years) it seems strange that no new investors appear to have come forward.
I can only , and possibly incorrectly , assume that itís because Parish wants to maintain some sort of overall control even though he has previously said that the other investors have reserved rights on key decisions.
Some will disagree, but Iím content that Parish has this level of control if the alternative is anonymous investors with questionable motives.
I always feel he is striving to operate in the clubís best interests, which may well not be true of others.

If every supporter what ever football club they support read and believed everything that the media wrote then most teams would start a season with half a team. The fact that Palace players are in demand proves that the club are on the right track. American investment in British football clubs are an appealing opportunity to make profit, thatís all they donít understand the connection between club and supporter
If Steve Parish had no heart for the club and just sold players to make a profit then I think we would never be in a position we are in now as a premiership club. At this time start of the new season players agents are always looking to boost finances. As for the press donít believe everything you read. I would be more worried if I was a Brighton supporter with the player exodus they have had.

And look what happened to Southampton.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

TBF what I worry about with any reference to Southampton POG is that we follow their model in producing Bale, VVD, Shaw, Walcott, Mane, Tadic like players, don't replace them sufficiently and suffer the consequences. Our recent loss of our two wingers and no replacements indicates this is already happening before anyone else even leaves.

I am really shocked to see another 'SP out' thread during a poor transfer window however, never saw that coming I love the notion that he is all that is standing between Palace and Chelsea-esque transfer window spending twice a year, a 100k seater stadium and Champions League football.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Didn't they change ownership with the daughter taking over or something, the same with Leicester, who's son doesn't seem to be as interested as the dad. Brighton are well run and I don't see that changing.

You are making reference to the situation whereby Katharina Liebherr assumed control of the club, I believe in 2010, after her father Markus passed away.

Good post.
Ultimately SP is a life long Palace fan. That counts for everything. He has done very well bringing in the hefty Americans. He appears to be on top of things. Would be good if H&B would slip us a few bob (x a billion) to help secure our existing squad and bring in Jack Clark and a left back. But it is crucial SP stays. If we find a wealthy Arab who wants to join our fun, he or she will have to keep Parish.
