A dramatic rise in the crime rate


geezer

Recommended Posts

Stand by for a dramatic rise in the crime rate on the back of the scouse idea of fans buying the club. Apparently 100,000 of them need to find £5k each to participate. That's a f**king lot of hubcaps and stereos!!

The real funny thing about it? Even if the scheme succeeded and they had a ground for 70,000 fans that would still mean 30% of the investors couldn't get a match ticket. No wonder the flickers steal tickets off each other!!

I wouldn't be so quick to write off the idea. It might just work......

I take it you're referring to the title of this topic. Because 100,000 Scousers (plastic or otherwise) buying out a couple of multi-millionaires and subsequently taking the football world by storm .. just ain't gonna happen.

Ok yes, but I wouldn't rule out the idea that fans managing a football club could work. Look at all that has happend with us and the Mourinho/Abramovich/Grant/Arnesen, etc little love triangle. I don't beleive that would have happend under a fans administration.

Obviously doing this wouldn't work for us seeing as Ambramovich is pumping money into Chelsea rather than pulling it out like say Glazier is. But assuming we wanted to be run cost neutral, whose to say it wouldn't work better than having a Glazier type owner whose running the investment for his own profit.

Well in essence it is already working as it is the mode that you can see at Barcelona who are owned by something like 150,000 fans however I don't think anyone really buys into the idea that those owners run the club. They aren't the 2nd richest club in the world because a few fans had a good year flogging dodgy Ronaldiho tops on 'La Rambla'

Granted (Avram'd?) in theory, it's quite possible. In fact unless I'm mistaken, Barcelona are owned by some kind of fans consortium. In this particular case however, we're talking about Scousers icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

And apart from anything else, one massive little factor that this lot seem to have conveniently overlooked, is that if they ever do manage to buy the club, they'd subsequent need regular lottery win sized cash injections in order to provide for futher investments - the proposed new stadium, players, management and so on and so on.

The idea is nothing new and most of you have cited Barcelona as being one example. I have a much smaller scale example down the road from me where the Rushden & Diamond fans mortgaged their houses to the hilt in order to save their club and take the reins from Max Griggs (Doc Martens big chief). It was unfortunate the club got relegated out of the league but the fans continued to give the club their backing. I have immense admiration for what they did and the risks they have taken in potrentially losing their homes should the scheme go tits up. All of a sudden I want the scouse idea to work and for their scheme to go tits up so they lose all their Robbie Fowler homes icon_twisted.gif

Well fan owning the club or making decisions for the club are how Argentine clubs are run. I think it has something to do with the fact that the clubs are not corporations (watch the series Football Factories, they explain it), but at the same time this creates much more tension. In Argentina, this is one of the main reasons of the riots and strong firms that pretty much rule the club board.
