I'm looking forward to FSG rolling out the expected statement of Covid and a lack of Champions League severely affecting our budget this summer probably alongside some exclusive revealing some upgrades to the yacht.

There's a running joke in Viz about the number of times people have sent in the Top Tip about saving money on personalised number plates by changing your name to match the reg you've got.

 

This post has acquired that status.

Er, cool...

 

'RedBird Capital Partners, the private investment firm part-owned by the former NBA star LeBron James, has bought a stake in Fenway Sports Group for about $735m (£533m), Liverpool’s owners have confirmed.

 

FSG has been in negotiations with RedBird for several months as it sought investment to cushion the financial impact of the pandemic, which is understood to have cost Liverpool £120m in lost revenues over the past year. That figure is set to increase and the deal with RedBird, which will become the third-biggest partners in FSG, will enable Liverpool to continue with plans to redevelop the Anfield Road stand and invest in player recruitment at pre-pandemic levels.

RedBird’s investment is based on a valuation for FSG of $7.35bn. Liverpool’s owners believe the deal will provide continuity and stability for the organisation, rather than simply a windfall for the football club or the Boston Red Sox baseball team they own, with several shareholders diluting their stake to allow James, Maverick Carter and their longtime business partner Paul Wachter to become part of the FSG ownership group.

 

The Red Sox president and CEO, Sam Kennedy, will also become a partner in FSG. RedBird, founded by the former Goldman Sachs partner Gerry Cardinale, has purchased about 10% of FSG. A portion of the investment will be new capital that will allow FSG to reduce the debts incurred over the past 12 months. That in turn will safeguard Liverpool against any risk to the proposed £60m redevelopment of the Anfield Road stand as a consequence of the global financial crisis.

 

A statement from FSG’s leadership, comprising principal owner John W Henry, chairman Tom Werner and president Mike Gordon, read: “Our strategic partnership with Gerry and the entire team at RedBird will enhance our ability to pursue future growth opportunities in a more accelerated way but with the same selectiveness that has served us so well. “We are also pleased to welcome to our ownership group LeBron, Maverick and Paul, with whom we have enjoyed a successful collaboration for well over a decade. Their addition is an important milestone for FSG and expands and deepens a longtime friendship and relationship that began in 2010.

 

“To our fans and supporters: winning continues to be the driving force for all of us. The growth of FSG as an organisation allows us to further strengthen our resources and commitment to the communities we serve, and we look forward to having these talented new partners join us in the next chapter of FSG’s evolution.”'

 

 

Guess this means the M'Bappe and Quresma rumours have legs.

You've got to laugh at the "invest in player recruitment at pre-pandemic levels.". So that'll be selling to buy then.

It all appears to be a load of bollocks.  Barcelona is worth $4.76 billion but Real Madrid is only $4.75 billion?  Give over.  They just made shit up.

 $4.2bn = £3bn.

I am aware of foreign exchange rates. But thanks, it's great to know you are too. 


Maybe you should check them then, because it seems a huge coincidence that they seem to explain the different valuations.

 

Unless of course, Forbes, an internationally renowned publication on finance, industry, investing, and marketing topics, have got  their numbers wrong by >25% and you’re right.

It certainly reads like your questioning the Forbes number, which looks to have a simple explanation to anybody who thought about it for a second. 


Stalker. Ha. If you stop posting shit, I’ll stop picking up on if.

 

The issue at the moment is you post an awful lot of shit.

I’m not the one questioning highly reputable publications. 
 

Direct quotes...

 

1) I wonder where Forbes picked this number.

 

2)  who the appraiser actually was.


Responses...

 

1) Picked? Like “picked from thin air”? Given they post numerous types of these articles every year, I’d assume, they’ve have done some sort of thorough analysis to come to that conclusion. 
 

2) Appraiser? Sounds like your questioning their integrity. Again, because the publication’s integrity is made up of these type of articles, I’d have said somebody would have checked these with the finest of tooth combs before publishing. 

 

I’ve offered a simple explanation as to why figures might differ. You’ve just insulted me. 
 

Whether I look bad in the process or not, I don’t care, but I hope the forum can finally start seeing through the shite you continually post.

 

Negative opinion passed off as fact, challenged, belittle credible source & make some more stuff up, challenged again, try and change the subject going back years hoping posters don’t remember that far back, challenged again, make up childish insults (Gobble / Stalker). Rinse and repeat.

 

Also see “‘We’re too lazy to negotiate”, “Nike didn’t make enough shirts”, “Sell to buy”, “Linda is a whore”, “FSG fiddle accounts” and other nonsensical accusations with no factual back up. 

 

Oh, and the poster who brings every single thread back to Anti-FSG, the irony of accusing me of clogging up the forum is outstanding.
