Is there another club whose owners have less interest in the team? 19:08 - Jan 12 with 3377 viewsmarchamjack

Genuine question

The hedgefund 29 act like a silent partner, except they are the majority owners as a body. We never see them. We never hear from them.

They have spokespeople.

Pearlman occasionally announces some relative minor sponsorship deal.

Huw ocassionally tells us the key to promotion is selling players.

But nothing from the owners. Very odd. Or very clever I suppose.


Oh,..Dave, what's occuring?

They don’t give a fuk about the club just money fella.

Those who sold to a hedge fund are the ones I blame, but I guess that’s been done to death.

...Is the correct answer!

27 of the 29 are silent partners, yes. They've invested money in a fund that has specific people running it (Levein and Kaplan) and that fund is the majority owner of a football club.

The board of the football club appointed Huw Jenkins to (continue to) be chairman. Pearlman is Chief operating officer. Potter is the manager. Those three are exactly the people who should be making statements about the football club.

It's the same at the vast majority of clubs. Does Peter Coates make public statements about Stoke often? A single press release back in May is all I've seen.

Well, yeah. They bought the club as an investment. They've never made a secret of it. The people who keep parrotting that as if it's some sort of inspired insight really need to get a grip.

They've basically left Jenkins in charge of the club. That also has been obvious since day one.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

I'm not going to defend the owners, they should have done a lot better, but there's no comparison with clubs like Blackpool, Bolton & probably a few others

Me as well Tom.

Thought there was a slight possibility of them twisting & trying to get back to the PL then flip us.

We are only a couple of players off having a good go at it.

Reality

The likes of Fer VDH won’t be given new contracts & we rely on the academy.

We know how it ends, but I’ve said it for years so no point starting it again.

Bang on pal, but even tho been " done to death" it must kept being brought up. Cos if not then the sellouts will think we don't care. Not that they give a fck what we think , but what worries me is that the likes of t2c and his disciples think it's ok for them to shaft us all.
Keep banging that drum !

If the hedge fund 29 were looking to invest they should have IMO focussed on alternative(s) that had greater/better potential for (stock market term) 'ten-bagger' returns.

If they had invested in a Championship Club with serious potential and a squad able to reach the Premier League fair enough. But a club where the only likelihood was staying at the same level or relegation, why bother?

The club had reached its pinnacle, it could not go any higher and being promoted to another league above with greater TV money was not available. I think that may be fuelling the asset strip claims by some?

Might has well have invested in pharma, biotech, next generation medicine that are advancing at leaps and bounds with stuff like immunotherapy etc. There again? Maybe buying the club was some form of an ego trip i.e. bragging about owning a U.K football club?

Exactly. If they just showed some ambition ! I can’t understand the argument that next season or the season after will be the best time to get promoted. Next summer the bigger clubs will be in for our talent.

I just don't get why so many people are calling for "ambition" when all that is likely to lead to is further debt for the club.

Living within our means and succeeding despite this used to be something we were proud of. Not sure when that became a bad thing.

Of course you don’t want the club getting indebted in a rush for promotion. There’s a happy medium though. What pisses me off is the lack of transparency regarding the financial situation of the club. How the hell do we know what “living within our means” actually means? Your guess is as good as mine when it comes down to it. Unless you’re privy to information that the rest of us aren’t.
