The percentages in that document are all wrong 90% ownership would require buying out multiple share holders not just Blitzer, Harris AND SP. SP also has a deciding vote which it's difficult to see him letting go. This feels like a speculative prospectus someone has shoved together to try and generate a sale without actually having agreement with everyone involved. The fact it talks about facilitating a sale and is all over the show in terms of the details suggests a Will Salthouse style exercise in bollocks.

That must be one of the most nonsensical statements ever on the BBS.

Someone who doesn't want a return, won't want to invest and then we would really be up the creek without a paddle or Charlton Athletic as it's sometimes called.

I think the logic is more about someone who will invest in the long term rather than just wanting a short-term return. A bit like Leicester/Southampton etc.

We have a lot of potential to be a fairly big club but it needs a lot of money and patience to get us there, something the Americans clearly aren't interested in.

I've always been surprised that we are not linked with overseas buyers on our name and London location.

It adds there is “real potential” to qualify for European competitions “with subsequent financial uplift”.
Bet the report doesn't mention that there's even greater potential for relegation from the land of milk & honey and the subsequent financial downfall.

A few of the journos mentioned on the Sunday Supplement on Sky about the trouble Newcastle have by trying to sell the club so publicly that mo, that the best takeovers are the ones you don't hear about until they are announced.

This certainly has the US investors fingerprints all over it. Buy at £100m try and sell for double that a few years later. Im not surprised that they are trying to cash in - we are looking pretty well set in the Prem to an outside investor and must be at peak attractability.

There are a shedload of things coming up that they may want to cash in before they get to be a possible problem and reduce the value of the club. Sadly this is exactly as expected when they came in. Hedge fund style investment.

As for up to 90% that sounds possible -the smoke and mirrors set up and Delaware registration of the ultimate owning companies is likely to hide a large percentage of ownership already and the club have never made clear who owns what since the US investors came in.

If Parish is prepared to dilute his share further that suggests the veto on action that he considers against Palace's interests may be up for grabs sadly. If they do go then selling out to them a few years ago is going to have turned out to be a bit of a failure. They may make a lot of money but we will be left with no real infrastructure improvements and a matchday squad that is the second oldest on average in the prem which suggests a lot of money may need to be spent in the not too distant future.

The only plus I can think of is the purchase of the training ground at Goals but it is entirely possible that that would have happened anyway.

I love their completely pie in the sky figures as to worth in three and five years time. As they have been trying to sell for a while without any takers it looks like no one else believes them either.

Shame about the ground, but I'm surprised, either middle East or far East investors haven't asked to see the books
They might have done, that's why they aren't buying.
