Leaving aside Mr Thaksin's personal history (not that I think it's irrelevant), I am afraid that the current fashion for squillionaires to put colossal amounts of money into English football clubs will pass. When it does, Chelsea, Manchester City and others will be in deep doo dah. I hope we won't join them.

He was the most popular politician in Thai history except for the rich.

Might not be all bad. That’s just a little googling and I’m playing devils advocate... just before this gains huge momentum on the bbs based on ill-informed opinions being repeated
You know it should be a no-go when you're debating whether a guy's executions were justified or not.....

Think we would all be ok with that at Palace.

And trips to Europe 'yes please' - Been following the club for 45 seasons and probably only got another 30 left in me. Ajax v Crystal Palace; AC Milan v Crystal Palace; Atletico Madrid v Crystal Palace; Aberdeen v Crystal Palace and me there at all of them. A dream would come true.

Plus I want to find a new Mrs who isn't English. Away to Newcastle in the FA Cup isn't going to cut it. I've got nothing against slags who are fat mind.
Man City are the PR wing of a human-right abusing petrostate. If palace became like them, I’d stop supporting and watch non league or something.

I don’t know much about this Thai guy, but he sounds pretty dodgy. Will have to do more research before properly judging him though. Honestly, if he’s just an Abramovich level billionaire, the type of ‘businessman’ who’s screwed over lots of people but hasn’t done anything near comparable to Man City’s owners, I could live with that. I wouldn’t like him being at palace, but I could tolerate it.

One thing's for sure; we will be dealing with new owners pretty soon. We're too juicy a morsel not to attract investment offers. I'd be amazed if Steve doesn't get approached seriously dozens of times a year. It's only a matter of time ( short time IMHO ) before there is a major shake up so anyone hoping things will stay the same are going to be disappointed. Hopefully, we can get in someone with a better reputation. Like it or not, the identity of who owns a club becomes a major part of the perceived identity of that club. We have to let some rich f$cker buy us if we want to even remotely compete at the top because that is where football is going. I don't think Steve would hand us over to any old scum Plutocrat however.

Wilf, Luka and Wan Bissaka are worth 150 million alone, so I'd assume SP would tell him to go and take a hike unless he is trying to by out the Yank's share only.

I don't know whether this story is real or not but I do believe a new owner will be in place before the start of next season. Whether that be the same set as now with Parish in charge or a complete change. We must be ripe for investors 7 years in the Prem and look fairly stable. The ground is the only issue I see.

I doubt this'll turn into anything serious but expect plenty more similar rumours over the summer. I'm still holding out for the return of the Diddy.

I wonder how much he will actually pay? Enough to love us long time or just love us short time.

Some of the yanks clearly want out before they have to splash out on the new stand.
They would have made some money and know us getting into Europe are slim to none and at least 5-10 years away.
Now is the right time to get out to someone who has money to burn.
This has always been end game for us if we managed to stay up.

Very similar rumour to the Gaddafi one a few years ago. Americans want to sell so a rumour has been started to draw attention to it.

We have billionaires as owners but we are hamstrung by the FFP rules.

Clubs like Chelsea and Man City had a head start and were able to build what they have now before the rules were tightened up.

OK they could still chuck money at it but as far as I am aware from the start the aim was for the football side to be self-sufficient with the owners financing the infrastructure.

Need an owner who wants more than a plaything - and someone who doesnt make the club a social pariah like this guy will.

Pretty sure SP wont give over the reigns totally and will retain some part of the club he rescued, so will want to work with someone he respects and has the clubs best interest at heart.
