German Consortium to bid for Chelsea

Recommended Posts


blize - I think no-one's commented because it's total bollox - RA and the club have said it's not for sale, RA is suing the Times for saying it was and even the bit above has a quote that says the consortium (if they even exist outside the fevered mind of some d**khead journalist) don't think the club is for sale.

Could be a reason why the club are so keen to have a healthy looking balance sheet to present to any new owners ?

Don't see how Roman's court case with the Sunday Times in reagrds to the story they ran about him selling would hold any water if the deal went through .

One quote was that Chelsea could be brought for £750 million would clinch the deal yet Liverpool's proposed sale is valued at £500 million ?

so if I made up some bollox about I've made a bid of £50 for your house, would that mean that you were going to sell me your house, or even that your house was for sale? What if I said that I had heard from a mate's mother's hairdresser that there were some Welsh people that no-one had ever heard of who were actually buying your house AND the house next-door

Just because it's on the internet doesn't make it true!

The only way Roman would sell, is if the offer was big enough to give him a large profit on his layout.

He's layed out over £600m on this club, so he's going to want a return of at least £700m-£1Billion, otherwise whats the point in selling ?

Citeh were purchased for around £220m, so I suppose £700m-£1Billion for C.F.C is about the correct price, but I cant see anyone coming in what that kind of money.

Maybe Porsche have something to do with this consortium, anyone see the money programme last night ?

"I don't believe anything is ever not for sale if you come up with the right price. It's not about trying to buy a football team but about a business.

"You don't make money because 11 guys run around the pitch, you make money because of all the other commercial aspects that go with a football club, particularly real estate and television rights."

omg this doesn't sound fun at all

think this was what utd were worried about with the glazers - all about the business/making profits.

didn't really work out that way cause the glazers have spent but it doesn't sound that way with this lot. pray this doesn't go through

Just because it's on the internet doesn't make it true!

and btw that is a rediculous argument. for starters any potential bid will be on market value (taking into account any money put in by roman) + enough to tempt so the only comparison here would be if that house was only worth £40. then regardless of whether you were planning to sell or not, you would consider the bid

sexelk, I too found those quotes EXTREMELY disturbing. How is that someones attitude while they are still engineering a move for the club? I couldnt think of anything more convincing to rally the fans against you. Because, to alot of people at this "business" its alot more than 11 men running around on a pitch. To quote Shankley (sorry) "it might be someone's whole life"

In contrast, we have a low key, but clearly football knowledgeable man like Roman Abramovich. He has appointed some people who I really dont like, and made some curious decisions that have probably hurt the club and fans in the past, but after half a billion spent I dont think anyone can doubt that he loves this club and football. I dont want some unknown quantity coming in looking for pure profit. My mind turns to the glazer takeover: huge debts transferred over to the club, no transfer money made available, massive ticket increases, fan protest falling on deaf ears, etc

maybe roman should come out and speak publicly about what his intentions for the short and long term future of chelsea are, rather than letting bullsh*t kenyon do it all the time

roman saying it might carry more belief than anything kenyon has to say

Totally agreed with that. I know he does the occasional interview, but with all the rumors swirling about the credit crunch, etc, we need to hear him come out and categorically flush all this nonsense away.

I would obviously much rather have Roman in charge than some faceless, profit hunting consortium. But If they put an offer with enough profit on the table, does anyone think he actually takes it and runs? I think the challenges of building a world class team are far far greaters than he estimated six years ago (cant believe its been that long). The sheer amount in loans and the constant financial losses are a testament to that.

If a bid ever did come in then it would give Roman the perect opportunity to show whether he really is in for the long run or has had enough and will cash his chips in. If this particular rumour is anything to go by my guess is he'll tell the bidders to stuff it.

He hasn't said a word to supporters or the media since he's been here. His ONLY interaction with supporters in his 5 or 6 years has been the 'owner in the shed-end' PR disaster when he'd just sacked Jose.

we need to see what romans wishes are and if he is stuck for the money before hand. they would need to put forward their plans with regard to their plans also in terms of debt and long term plans. we don't want someone who thinks they're soccer manager on their PC like city have been.

He sued The Times for suggesting that he was looking to sell the club, what else does he need to say? As far as I can see, there is no offer, there is no buyer and there is no seller. There in only a poxy broker shooting his mouth off to gain some publicity.

Fahim added: "It's not entirely clear if Chelsea is for sale, but regardless of that, we first need to see if we are in a position to buy

Forget the rest, it's just waffle. They don't know if the club is for sale and even if the club is for sale, they don't know if they've got the necessary funds or a business plan to go with it.

Bang on mate, Roman doesnt need to talk, he pays others to do that.

Pulling your legal team out of bed to issue a lawsuit is proof enough, we are not 'for sale', at any cost.

hopefully if this happens we'll have some more delightful xenophobia like last season when grant was going to build the team around bens haim and sahar, and sign the israeli national side;

in fact, I'll start- we're gonna replace jt with huth and make ballack captain. we'll probably change our badge to a swastika too.

This story is back again, its now becoming regular specualtion.

Investors eye 'friendly Blues deal'

Chelsea--Stamford-Bridge-General-PA_1057789.jpg

Holger Heims, a German investment manager at Falcon Equity, has claimed that a group of up to eight international investors is preparing a takeover offer for Chelsea.

Speaking to Reuters, Heims said that he and a group of six to seven other investors from Europe, the Middle East and Asia are considering an approach, with Dr Sulaiman al-Fahim - board member of Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment - involved.

Reports have claimed that Blues owner Roman Abramovich could be willing to entertain offers for the club after being hit hard by the global slowdown, however Chelsea have since played down the claims.

Heims, though, said. "We have no intention of launching a hostile takeover. This is only possible as a friendly deal."

I hope Roman stays instead of having some group of investors owning the club. We'd might be better off economically but we'd lose the public face of Abramovich then. I think it is important having a face to the owner. It would only leave us with the smirking bowlingball-head.

+If we change the owner we would probably start everything all over again. New manager, new players, new this, new that instead we should build on what we already have.
