There we go the strategy becomes clearer. Can see a player development route from world > Belgium > European top 4 league. They're like second or something in the Belgian 2nd division. A while back Belgium and Netherlands were trying to create a combined league pyramid to make both leagues more competitive with other European leagues. If that's still ongoing then it makes even more sense. Although even if it doesn't I can see the value in doing this.

Leicesters owners own the club just above them in the table I think so clearly not the only Premier League club with some outside the box thinking. Brighton as well so be interesting to see how many worldwide football groups include a Belgian club.

Be interesting to see what happens with Montes if this goes through. Clearly given up on Portugal as a source of players and development. Belgium makes sense as a lot of good players have come from there and being involved in the Belgian system while having access to a Premier League clubs behind the scenes staff and coaches is not the worst idea.

I think Textor wants a landing bay for young North American talent. He refenced that in the Athletic interview a little while ago. I'd imagine this will solve that issue, if good enough they can move on to Palace after meeting the permit requirements.

Good to see long term positive thinking, with a strategy to deliver it.

Textor certainly seems like a welcome breath of fresh air, and unlike the other American co-owners, has great ideas for helping push the club forward.

Another shrewd move by the club in the summer (on top of squad and manager refresh), bringing him on-board.

In years to come 2021 could well be seen as a huge turning point in Palace's history.

It's a really good interview if anybody missed this a few weeks back:

He also mentions that he suffered a head injury as a child, which helps to explain his interest in Palace.

Looks like he has purchased a stake in Brazilian side Botafogo

Palace just tweeted about a Xmas youtube quiz. And there have been 145 replies from Botafogo fans in 5mins.

Brazilians on Palace Twitter like Turkish fans when a Palae-transfer rumour occurs: numerous, persistent - but not c vn ty, aggressive or malign…

U.S. investor John Textor is keen to increase his 40% stake in south London’s Crystal Palace Football Club, according to a person familiar with the matter.
