    FSGs financial commitment

    Loki...Im afraid Im a naturally suspicious person. I wont argue with u figures,Im not an accountant. If things are as u say then all I can say is,..great.
    I was suggesting being a little more generous in disposition to armchair sofa or whatever piece of furniture he currently is fond of . Why ? Well...cos its clear to me hes one of us hes a FAN. We all get frustrated with results me PARTICULARLY after losses to UniTURD and I spose I do vent a bit then. Im not a fan of American ownership and maybe Im a bit prejuidiced that way again mea culpa. But look at Kraft @Arsenal Glazers @ UniTURD Randy Lerner @Villa each a horror show in their own way plus look,at the Gruesome Twosome THE TOXIC TEXANS who somehow got their fangs into us ???
    I havent suggested the FSG should sell BRS I lived inUS long enough to know thats defo a non starter. I only suggested that if they were genuinely rich and benevolent owners it would even if u do the accountancy be pos to build a new MEGA STADIUM 80,000 seater profit from that stadium not just through football but multi purpose useage for sufficient yrs after its construction is completed then get their money back ...EASILY with the appreciation of FRANCHISE LFC over the yrs of their ownership....the stadium is part of their assets nobody seems to have tippled to that I mean they wouldnt be throwing in the new stadium free to any buyer would they? Anfield is theirs to sell u sell it and the money u realize from sale is coming straight back to u against u outlay of having built the new stadium. Ive heard plenty of reasons why they cant build a new mega stadium but not much in the way of an arguement in favour of it... well...Im arguing in favour of it..thats all.

    • Look, I would love a stadium with 80,000 scousers scaring the opposition half to death. We all would I think. However, not at the cost of the club getting into debt again and being on the edge of the financial cliff. No way.

      What my point of this was for those who are not Fsg fans is this:. What does a good owner look like? Is it Abramovich? Chelsea is hardly a stable club with virtually a manager every year on average - I want to us to build something, and the only way of doing this is to have continuity, not a different idea every season. Is it to be like City. To be fair they have been patient with their manager and bunged a few quid in, I think they do want to build something, including community stuff. I'm not aware of Abramovich being very community minded.

      Anyway back to FSG. How much should they be spending on transfers? Should they throw another £500 mil into the kitty for a fantasy stadium which essentially will never pay for itself except for a paper value? Think what your house is worth. It doesn't mean anything unless you flog it, and I don't think they want to do that.

      • If we went into minor debt to build the stadium it's worth it. As FSG would get their money back. They could hire it out etc.. all these things would recoup money back into the club and would clear off any such debt..

        Lets start at 60,000 then take it from there. Anfield can be developed if the houses surrounding the stadium could be bought and demolished?

        They could expand Anfield over time rather than immediately..

        Maybe get naming rights for each stand thats re-developed?

      • Loki...the' whole franchise of LFC they have bought is simply papaer value unless they flog it . So...by building a new mega stadium they are adding papaer value for the time when they do sell the franchise. You spend 35 mill on Andy C then u loan him out and he ends up what he started out with us ..injured. You sign a sick note like Harry Kewell and pay him back then 80,000 squid a week and he never gets off the physios table...these are papaer value to the franchise gone bad..not much chance of a new mega stadium going bad in theway an investment in players can and ..in our case often has....Kewell Aquillani Andy C tomention just 3. So...what do we do there never buy anybody particularly for heavy money ?
