Kieran Maguire is the Price Of Football guy, and the University of Liverpool’s football finance expert in their annual Premier League club valuation report.

For the last two years they have valued Palace at £200m, partly because Palaces's 2018/19 accounts were published too late. These would have shown a samll profit following the sale of AWB and may have helped push up the valuation slightly.

Likewise last years big loss and another large loss which will be revealed next year in the 2020/21 accounts are likely to have had a negative impact on the club's valuation and across the board at other clubs. The only real change is that we now have the Academy site and the investment in that, albeit it is not freehold.

I would suggest that the main reason our valuation may be holding up is that we are still attracting new investors (Franco and Textor). Having to spend upwards of £100m on redeveloping the ground is the big negative factor.

welcome to cpfc mr textor and thanks for investing in our club

too bad you're a "yank", if you had been a local boy like SJ and ran the club into the ground you'd have received a warmer welcome.

But then we know at least one of them wanted out a couple of years ago when the club was being offered for sale. That may have been one of the reasons we cut back on our transfer spending but clearly we have moved on since then.

Then again you have a single owner in the guise of Mike Ashley at Newcastle who suddenly turns the money tap off as he doesn't want to invest any more in his club.

And I suggest easier to find a buyer for say 20% of a club than 100%.

From the tweet and subsequent replies, it definitely looks like he has some sort of link to Montes.

Hopefully this loan will enable him to go on loan to a country and league which gives him more immigration points or what ever it is he needs to get his visa. Apparently scored several goals and that one was a great Finnish, last min of the game.

Martin H 05-10-2021 12:07 PM

Good to see him on a pitch at least. not sure how many minutes he has had but the goal was impressive at any level and won't hurt him will it. Does still seem it will be while before he gets to play in the UK at any level.

Hazbaz 25-10-2021 11:30 PM

I have been really impressed with John Textor’s recent tweets particularly the one with the ostrich in the Newcastle jersey with its head in the sand. He is coming across as a really good bloke and seems to get our club

CP-RJW 25-10-2021 11:41 PM

Don’t think you can know if someone’s a good bloke from a few tweets. But the efforts he’s making to ingratiate himself with the fans are great, and he clearly is an actual football fan if you do a bit of reading about him. I think he’s also donated to some charitable palace causes, THAT would be a stronger indicator of him being a good bloke.

Likewise for his son, Addison Textor. He’s pally with the younger fans.

I think he donated £10k to the Palace Foundation Marathon March.

I maybe wrong, but I thought I saw on the video about the march they raised circa £13k, so have to assume that Textor's donation was the bulk of that.

Stellavista 03-11-2021 05:06 PM

And, as some suspected, his share in the club is much larger than was initially reported.

Football is a harsh thing to invest in. £300m valuation but if Palace get relegated they are loss making and probably worth less than a third of that.

True. But the risk has been diluted for all investors.

£4.5million owed to someone I cant remember, total debts rolled up were over £20million. Alot for a club with a turnover at that time of £16million

Probably. Although the respective % share for all of them has probably been re-aligned. Be unlikely any other individual owns 40+%

At the time it was announced that his investment would help the club financially which may suggest that some of the money went to the club and the rest to buying shares from the other shareholders.

It’s definitely 25%+

britabroad 03-11-2021 09:24 PM

I am not a financial person, but it looks like he is also an investor in Disney Enterprises. IF this is the case, it is even more interesting as the Chairman is a Palace fan from Beckenham/Hayes.

Scrumpy 03-11-2021 09:53 PM

I am not a finance person either and it may be me being very basic but now there are 4 "major" investors could you assume Parish, Blitzer, Harris and Textor are now at 25% each and other investors who still had a small holding such as Browett have now been bought out?

Totally agree. Parish was really the only serious interested party at the time and we were lucky he was around, just shows he's a clever sausage and saw the potential of our club.

Do the original 4 still own the ground or was it tied together in the shares for the football club?

I can’t see him investing half of his wealth into palace. He must have much more than that.
I see that blitzer is worth over £1 b and Harris £6 b.

It's been low against the dollar for a while now, probably the last 5 years. It is a a high spot right now in those 5 years. You are right though as it fell initially after the Brexit vote.

GreatGonzo 04-11-2021 11:28 AM

So Holdco is the significant interest of Midco which is the significant interest of 2010!

Textor is the only name with significant interest in Holdco over over 25% but under 50%

Means all the other could have 18% each and he has 46%?

You can tell that it means something to him - leaving aside him having a riot on twitter. He is very hard not to like when you hear him speak.

It's nice to have a second, loud and passionate voice within the ownership team again.

Sounds like he is already thinking ahead about giving our Academy prospects stepping stones and opportunities at other clubs etc.

Also interesting to hear about his Benfica connections. Wonder if he will push for them to be the Portuguese members of the Global Football Alliance given the digital and academy synergies/ambitions. Link below refers.

theCoach 26-11-2021 09:27 AM

Fantastic insight into the decision making process at Board level and should provide comfort that our club is in good hands, with a sense of purpose ,looking for continuous improvement and at a pace we can afford.
Can't help but think that beyond maintaining premiership status and increasing match day revenue through the ground development that long term it's our academy and the players it might produce to play ,loan and sell that will allow us to catch up with our north London and west London counterparts.
Potentially exciting times and long may it continue !!!!

Poosence 26-11-2021 01:16 PM

I found this an interesting listen. He's seems extremely thoughtful and is certainly a fan of Steve Parish so seems like a goof fit on the face of it. I was interested that he referenced FFP as being a constraint to closing the gap while also being supportive of it. Suggests that at least they're not thinking of tightening the purse strings too much. i.e. they're not too concerned about breaking even from a P&L perspective.

red&blue_moomin 26-11-2021 01:31 PM

He's certainly still trying with Benfica. Not sure he's going to get anywhere. The academy in the US where Montes came from was set up by Textor decades ago. The club he's gone to on loan is owned by Blitzer. However I still don't think Montes gets the points to be able to play for us. I can see that another club that Palace could exchange with is needed to achieve the 'master plan' of 'adding value' to a youth developed player.

It's pretty clear Textor wants us to do something similar to what Chelsea do. Which I don't disagree with. It's benefited Chelsea hugely and they've done it off the back of players that could/should in some instances be coming through our academy. Add in a US talent pool and if it comes off it could be huge for the club and it's 'reach'.

eagle mart 26-11-2021 01:41 PM

I didn't know he was a professional Skateboarder. Very interesting - used to compete against Rodney Mullen, until a head injury in competition ended his career. His sponsor was Sims, and as part of his gratitude, bought them at a later date.

Montes is an interesting case as the natural progression for US players is university teams and then MLS and then overseas. He seems to have bypassed MLS and gone directly overseas. He is currently playing second division Belgium football in a league with only 8 teams and I am not sure what level that is compared to the UK.. He only has a 1 year contract with us and it does seem like a promotional signing to help highlight the football academy in Florida that Textor is involved with.

No he was on the 'roster' of Portland Timber academy graduates. There was another MLS club that wanted him. Timbers didn't offer him a deal they wanted him to train for a month first. Sounds like he got the hump as he had already been an academy player for them. Then came to us.

He seems energetic and full of ideas. I really like his enthusiasm and it's clear he gets a lot of enjoyment from the game.

He describes himself as a futurist at one point - I think that experience can hopefully benefit us (perhaps not just in revenue streams, but in the analytical side too?).

Interesting to get a peek behind the curtain, especially hearing about Blitzer and Harris being pretty hands on with the weekly meeting. Because they're not very visible, I had the (incorrect) impression they were perhaps just interested in the commercial side of things. It's reassuring that we seem to have 4 experienced owners who seem to be working well together.

Just listened to the podcast. Seems like the club has a solid base and I know it's been said before but we are so lucky to have Steve P
Onwards and upwards

Really enjoyed the interview. I love his passion for the game, including some of the less glamorous aspects. Pleasing to see him so confident on the stand redevelopment too.

Spicy...

But the interesting rivalries do not stop there.

Brighton chairman Tony Bloom also owns a controlling interest in Molenbeek’s local rivals in Brussels, Royal Union Saint-Gilloise.
