i dont know much about buisness or AEG etc, to know whether this is a good thing or a bad thing?
should i want this takeover to go through or not?
New money at this stage of our developement could be brilliant to compete at the top, but looking at other American owned clubs here, would we get the regular investment after the initial splurge? would we become a just an investment interest or their flagship in the sporting side of their buisness?,,Liverpool, Villa, and even Man U have not not really profited form US ownership IMO

A year or so ago Spurs entered some sort of partnership with the LA Galaxy of MLS (owned by AEG). Soon thereafter I was out with a friend who works for AEG and I mentioned as a Spurs fan I was happy about the deal. He replied something along the lines of "This is just the beginning..", then clammed up. So there very well may be something to the rumor.
This is not a rich American looking for a hobby. AEG is a sports and entertainment ownership and management company with expertise in developing and managing stadiums and arenas. They have experience owning football teams as part of their portfolio. Take a look at the picture on their website via link on Joe's post. I live near LA where they developed the Staples Center (pictured, home of LA Lakers) and surrounding hotels, shops, theatres, and restaurants. Really nice complex and it has helped revitalize a previously downtrodden area of Los Angeles. Their record of success can result in government providing more capital to projects than they otherwise might. I like it.

AEG make fabulous 'white goods', JT and Swearez are they're spokes people! -jokes!!!
AEG who are interested in us are................. well, just have a look:
I hope you are right OP, the idea of paying players in excess of £100k p/w (I know some earn far more) is just disgusting. Cap it now! Sadly I think if we want to compete year-in-year-out we have little choice. Its all about priorities, as many on here have previously pointed out.
Can't wait for Stevenage!
