Huh?!

Net Worth Of Owners

Recommended Posts

So I''ve recently read both on here and Tw@tter a lot of people moaning that we are losing out on players or annoyed that we are selling in order to buy. Football is no longer about wanting to play for a single team due to their history, location in the country or the colour of the kit. Everything is about £££. As a football club we are consolidating as the chances of us being in this league for the next 2-5 years is extremely likely.

It''s well known our owners are not the richest. Can we stop moaning about "losing out" to other clubs. The simple fact is that we cannot compete. Be realistic. We have to sell in order to buy.

Let''s compare our finance''s to other teams in the league. It may shock you at how little we are worth and open your eyes as to why we don''t chuck money around;

Brighton and Hove Albion + Tony Bloom; Reported in the billions

Newcastle United + Mike Ashley: £2bn

Reading + Narin Niruttinanon; Reported £400m

Huddersfield Town + Dean Hoyle; £365m

Leeds United + Massimo Cellino; £800m

Sheffield Wednesday + Dejphon Chansiri; £700m

Derby County + Mel Morris; £850m

Fulham + Shahid Khan; £5.5bn

Aston Villa + Tony Xia; £927m

Wolverhampton Wanderers + Fosun Group; £450m

Bristol City + Stephen Lansdown; £280m

The reality is we are a small club in comparison to a number of teams in this league and we do not have the financial power to walk it. Delia''s love for the club is starting to drag us down. Investment is needed sooner rather than later.

Look up some of those owners Derby - The young grandson of Mel Morris was left fearing for the Rams owner''s life after an angry supporter said he should be beheaded over the club''s woes.Leeds - Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino

was on Thursday handed an 18-month ban after being found guilty of

breaking the Football Association’s regulations over the transfer of

Ross McCormackNewcastle United - mike ashley ----sports directFulham--
Fulham owner Shahid Khan is considering selling the club and buying Tottenham in a deal that could also see his NFL team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, move into the new White Hart Lane.Reading - There have been rumours for months that the consortium of Sasima Srivikorn, Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth and Narin Niruttinanon could be looking to sell up having been surprised by the amount of money which is needed to run the football club.Be careful what you wish for

This isnt a post to say I want an owner like Cellino or similar, this was more in response to people complaining why we can''t compete.

Grass isn''t always greener for sure, but for us to move forward as a club investment is a must. Unfortunate for us it seems the current board are happy as a promotion challenging Div 1 team.

Swindon the Reading owners have split land including the carpark away from the club and are applying for planning permission for houses ect. Too many of these people are dodgy barstewards and if better checks and safeguards were in place I would welcome one at our club but at the moment it''s a bit like rolling the dice.

True as ever, but it''s getting to the stage where I for one would be willing for us to take the risk.[/quote]Easy to say with other peoples money Broady but would you take the risk if it was your money?

Net worth does not mean they will put the money into the club or that it will be used wisely.

Liverpool have spend a fortune and not won the prem; ipswich and blackpools owners are more wealthy and it hasnt helped their cause.

"Easy to say with other peoples money Broady but would you take the risk if it was your money?"

Is buying the Club the risk?

Surely this mythical Mr. Rich would be using his own money to buy Delia and Co out.

He would then presumably assume control and that''s where the "be careful what you wish for" mantra becomes a reality.

We could get a good ''un, we could not.

Perhaps we had better see the season out before engaging in such drastic thinking.

Neil, Neil turn it round for f''s sake.

By owners wealth we are the second poorest club in the top two leagues. I think the poorest is Burton Albion.

This is the reason we always have to punch above our weight.

Any buyer does not have to buy any of the current shareholders out; they could guarantee long term control by purchasing the c1m shares the club made available few years ago (t&c apply)

The added advantage is that share money (c£100m) would be available for the club (squad, ground etc), rather than going to existing shareholders.

and which also should remind folk on here that Delia and her hubby are not the owners just the majority shareholdersand only just at that

As far as I know that authority has not been exercised. Apart from anything else if it had been, and  those shares were there waiting to be snapped up, it would mean Smith and Jones had effectively put the club up for sale, since anyone buying that number of shares would become the owners.

So what do you think those flats behind the N&P (River End) stand are built on? The car park that use to be used by football supporters.

Marcus Evans estimated wealth is £765m 😮.

Can''t believe that Fulham owner is worth £5.5bn, if he chucked some more money at them they could become pretty successfull.
