If they had sold up, ground, club and players would have covered that intitial investment.

It was a cracking deal for them even back then.

But people post it up as if it were a great financial risk and SP and the fantastic four put every penny they owned into buying Palace. They were very wily operators. That's why SP and the others ignored SJs overtures for extra funding.

It's amazing what opportunities you get for great investments when you have lots of cash. The rest of us are scratching around begging banks to give us an overdraft.
You are using hindsight to change the status and risk involved in buying a football club, yes there is potential to be successful but the risks are ridiculously high, especially with us, two admins over ten years and and 9 years of 2nd tier football. Alot has changed in 7 years, as now clubs are being bought by foreign investors but it wasnt so prevalent amoung 2nd tier clubs then.

I dont know what point you are trying to make buying saying it wasnt a risk, but it undoubtably was.

I think Mutch has another year to go after that

On Sammy Lee I would assume that as he and Roy worked together at Liverpool that something happened when Roy left Liverpool that Sammy Lee was aware would mean that they would not be able to work here together and so he left before he was pushed.

I think the part of the Hodgson appointment statement that read 'we will be appointing a first-team coach shortly' (or something like that) indicates Sammy Lee has left. Only Hodgson and Lewington in training pictures too. Think question now relates to Margetson and sports science guy Ryland Morgans.

I dont know what point you are trying to make buying saying it wasnt a risk, but it undoubtably was.

A risk mitigated by how they went about conducting their business. Highly mitigated, in my view only, by there being 4 successful businessmen. Compared to the two get rich quick merchants - Goldberg and Jordan.

What was interesting from another thread a little while back was in the championship seasons under the fab four we spent very little on transfers. Thus, SP and crew managed the ship very nicely indeed, and got a pretty unexpected promotion out of it. What really helped was the sale and buyback of Zaha.


It's kind of scary that in the last couple of years we really seem to have gone down the path of throwing money at the problem - Benteke (offset by Bolasie granted), wages, the overspend in January, and now Sakho.

That's scary territory for SP, and it has to be assumed that some of that promised ground redevelopment cash has gone on this.

And again, rumours suggest that that strategy (or lack of) might be repeated for Roy this January - which many on here have lamented.
