Teh alledged bid is also high because it needs to be. The sum needs to be high to get Kronke interested. By all accounts a £1.5billion sale would allow him to pocket £350m. Nice work if you can get it.
Maybe the Arsenal supporters should hope he does take notice.
I assume this thread was put up to show some parallels between us and Arsenal, and its true we both have American owners, both try to play more possession football, both have fallen away from the top of the league, and therefore maybe should be worth about the same.
However I would point out one item where we may be very different and that is the ownership. Both our owners are American, and both are very successful in the sports management business; however Kronkie seems to know how to make teams successful financially, but not necessarily on the field of play, while Mr. Henry and Co, seem to have done both.
btw, while we as supporters maybe understandably think a club that is successful should be worth more, for a businessman the financial results are much more important. So a club that can fill a 60K stadium week after week, and charge premium prices doing it, while also able to keep expenditures down, is worth quite a bit, even if they don’t' win every week.

Been saying on the board for a long time now that as long as FSG hold onto Franchise LFC long enough it will make them a very handsome profit...now...when did they purchase us ? I would venture that LFC is at this point in time worth quite a fair amount more than what they paid..no...Im not against the idea of such, why should I be ? As for Arsenal if someone is prepared to pay one and a half bill squid for them then....thats what they are worth. Whatever someone is prepared to pay for us ...likewise and FSG understand this very well...why do u think they bought us ?
