Meh, Americans are firmly below former Soviet state oligarchs, Middle Eastern sheikhs and the corrupt bastards at the top of Spanish and Italian football on my hated owners list.

The two big Spanish clubs are fan-owned.

Yes. “Presidents” rather than owners, if we’re being picky.

Can’t stand Bayern’s executives too, come to think of it.

My point is that the Americans invested in our club and seem to have pretty much let SP get on with it. The 'denigrated' squad they've financed has secured multiple comfortable finishes in the PL, and also financed the upheaval of said squad.

You seem to have an opinion that the performance and intention of 'American investors' in English football are all the same, whereas I am preferring to solely look at our beloved, benevolent uncle Sams in isolation.

I am very happy with their contribution, even if it's not as good as the ones you prefer that they have seemingly cockblocked from our club.

Once again, thank you, Americans

It also makes Harris and Blizter's contributions look far less generous to this window than we may have thought.

But I guess we can't turn up our nose at a time like this. Hope we don't regret it later.
Did you mean ESL?

Will this mean we're no longer 'for sale'? If that's the case and we continue to have SP running the show then this feels like the best possible outcome from the process

They'd only get away with that if it was a new stadium in a new location and that ain't gonna happen.


Selhurst Park is Selhurst Park. They might f*ck about with naming rights for the stands but even that will be a tricky path - the Holmesdale is the Holmesdale.


The new main stand will be up for grabs certainly.

That was the strange contradiction at the heart of the whole ESL fiasco.

Guess there’s a real possibility either Blitzer or Harris (or both) diluted shares to accommodate this. Thing is, the one security we had with the pair of them (the latter especially) is that whilst they were clearly not intending to do a Villa - they definitely were in a position to ensure we could steer clear of relegation. And they did invest when we were in serious danger of precisely that.

Found the post I was looking for, this was reported at the time of the original takeover:

Steve Parish 18% Steve Browett 5% Jeremy Hosking 5% Martin Long 2.5% with the remainder being owned by Palace Holdco LP (a limited partnership registered in Delaware) 67.5% and Palace Parallel LLC (a company also registered in Delaware) 1.5%.

Would have thought Parish, Blizter and Harris would dilute at the same rate.

I would have thought one more American billionaire means one more person with tons of money, very keen not to see us relegated.
