Todd Boehly to buy Brighton?

Anyone else think his obsession with Brighton is akin to Kevin Spacey running the Old Vic? What is this man getting up to on the south coast? Why buy us when he could have simply bought Brighton fc instead? We're just buying all the sh*t players from them. 

While your on the south coast Todd looking for something you lost in a bush... why don't you pick up the Brighton and hove match day chef - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jorge-dos-reis-79407b201/ or you could try poaching the Kit man https://www.linkedin.com/in/alex-burrows-984076b5/

Both would cost the club under 100K and improve the food on match day and crispness and presentability of our shirts... sing em up...

Small problem to this logic, he hasn't been involved in the transfer side of things in the last two windows.

Todd is the owner of the club. It's his name down on the deeds like it was Roman the Kremlin stooge/ previous owner owner who signed the cheques for the CEO/ people responsible for transfers? that logic Argo? 🙂

Todd Boehly is a minority owner and was the head director/spokesman of the consortium that purchased Chelsea Football Club (BlueCo), the majority owner being Clearlake Capital. They have since removed Boehly of footballing responsibilities since November with Winstanley and Stewart taking over. 

Boehly is essentially the chairman now.

Looks like I've been beaten to the needed response there.

It's been pretty well reported Eghabli and the recruitment team have taken the lead in transfers since the winter, and there was an official announcement of Boehly stepping down as director alongside it.

Blah blah blah.. who will go to prison should CFC be found guilty of money laundering? Who is that face, used to be Roman and look how that worked out for us. We nearly went to the wall. Same deal for our new owners, Todd is the figure head the public face. 

Currently CFC have given more than 100 million for three contracts. Cucurella (60 million), Potter + staff (21.5 Million), Sanchez (25 Million) fair to say over paying in all three instances for two bang average players and a manager who we then had to pay 13 million in compensation to f**k off.

We are currently in the mix to give Brighton close to another 80 million Pounds should we land Caciado, a player who just 12/18 months ago was bought for 4.5 million. That's not a lot shy of quarter of a billion pounds.  

If you think a gambling website businessman owning a football club being paid hundreds of millions by a rival club only in the market for 12 months isn't a massive red flag, may I simply suggest that your bed and pillows are comfy and I wish you a pleasant onwards sleep. 

Sports are now laundromats for private and wealthy individuals. Welcome to sports new era.
