    And what of Financial Fair Play? Or is the idea that the investment would further attract other commercial revenues that could be used to build the squad?

    In any case, Liverpool and particularly Klopp have proved you don’t need a bottomless pit to get to the very top. Would Liverpool have still gone for Andy Robertson had they had a huge wodge of cash burning a hole in their pocket for example?

    All the owners of the major Clubs have the option to sell of a portion of their Clubs for a lot of money.

    City are a bit different though because what’s been sold is a portion of the parent company of Manchester City and City Group of which City is obviously the integral part is much wider than just Manchester City Football Club.

    This might be the way things go going forwards though as it gets around FFP and potentially gives Clubs significant funds to invest in players to drive further success.

    Mikus, its well within FFP to gain investment by selling shares, and form what ive read its to expand the business group as a whole and increase share price, its a tech firm so will likely add lots of tech to the group and improve things that way as well as reaping the share price as it continues to grow

    it then says that liverpool are in the best position of any other club to follow this model and gain some increased cash, you wont always have the luxury to sell a player like Cout and spend Circa £250m in 6 months to get quality like VVD…who knows about robertson he may still have come in, thats down to the manager and scouts, nice to have options tho and play on a level playing field when it comes to cash tho and do it senseibly and within the rules…

    its a bigger picture about growing LFC as a brand and business that can only benefit the club/team/supporters as a whole

    So long as it’s used smartly Steveo. I’m just quite happy with how we’ve done things so far to be honest. And if you look at clubs like Man Utd, you can see that because they’ve increasingly had shareholders to please, it creates a more pressured, chaotic and ruthless boardroom to chop and change, and they end up throwing money around left, right and centre.

    maybe Mikus, youve done well at present yes, with the best manager for the club and some very wise investment with large sums of cash….so spending large sums isnt the issue its spending wisely

    its also about being a BIG club, having a big club mentality and growing ALL areas of the business to support the team otherwise post Klopp you could find yourself with less cash compared to competitors and a not so good managerial fit and all the things that happend Pre Klopp

    make hay whilst the sun shines!

    We’ll see, FSG have always been open to the right minority investor. But success at a club is for me all about bringing in the right manager first and foremost. On everything else does such a thing hinge on. So ensuring the boardroom stays stable and rational to make the best decisions will always be key for me. I wouldn’t want too many cooks in there, so to speak.

    “Manchester City owners City Football Group have purchased a majority stake in Indian Super League side Mumbai City.

    The group, which owns the Premier League champions, New York City in the US, Melbourne City in Australia, Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan, Club Atletico Torque in Uruguay, Girona in Spain and Sichuan Jiuniu in China, has agreed a deal to take a 65 per cent stake in the club.

    CFG chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said on cityfootballgroup.com: “We believe that this investment will deliver transformative benefits to Mumbai City FC, to City Football Group and to Indian football as a whole.

    “City Football Group is committed to the future of football in India and to the potential for Mumbai City FC within that future.

    “We are very much looking forward to playing an active role in Mumbai City FC’s fan and local communities, and working with our co-owners to further develop the club as quickly as possible.” Evening Standard 28/11

    I suspect more investors will also enter football, some will want a ready made situation, say like Arsenal who have a structure and be a top echelon team more ready to go for a big investor , or, an investor who is going to make a longer term project out of it for teams like Newcastle and Sunderland, it will happen, sooner or later
    Football, as we knew it, with the Chairman doing all the decision making have all but gone and I think the game is better for it but in saying that, there has been some good Chairman, not many but good ones

    I have said so often that this game is now big business. If you look back at the City group they have built by investment an organically like any other business. We supporters may not like it because, in the main, we hark back to the days when a team was’local’ partly made up of local lads.
    I remember:
    Corrigan, Book, Pardoe, Doyle Booth Oakes, Summerbee, Bell, Lee, Young, Coleman…We won the league. I remember going to a match on the bus and Neil Young was on the bus going to the ground to play.
    Liverpool lads cant remember all the names of the Shankly team but I bet it was similar.

    Its not the same now. Its big,big business. I am sure Liverpool will copy the City group business model. Maybe Chelsea too.

    The secret is big equity investment, no debt and creating an infrastructure. It does not guarantee success on the field. You cant legislate for injuries (or VAR), but in the long run it willprovide success.

    The next and sadly I believe step will be a European super league with probably two divisions. Its inevitable if you want to expand the business.
