25k in the club shop...what did he buy, 3 shirts?

At the temple of doom he could have bought the whole club for that much and still have change.

Does anyone else still pinch themselves that these two are our owners given we came minutes from becoming Sheffield Wednesday or Sunderland?

I still wonder if, without them, we would have been Bolton or Bury!

Saturday morning with no Villa game and pretty fed up with everything. Then I saw this! Cheered me right up. Fantastic article  about our great club and brilliant new owners.Thanks for posting Ger. This really drives home just what a sliding doors moment that play off final against Fulham was. And that quote "we understand that are stewards of Aston Villa on behalf of the fans and we take that responsibility very seriously"
That's such humbling statement from the guys that have literally saved the very existence of Aston Villa. And next time I hear someone banging on about how rubbish they  think certain players are I will quote the final line in the article "what's most exciting is that this is just the beginning"

That article needs posting elsewhere,  like the ...... Smallheath forum .
Don't you think 2020 has been bad enough already? We could do without the whole of Solihull self combusting.

Mr. Sawiris up to 28th in the list of the richest owners in sport (3rd in the PL).

Couldn't find Xuandong Ren in it although he might make a billionaires list if it was denominated in Dong.

It has stick in the throats of the cross city beggars that literally 24 hours that their status as Tramps in Perpetuity was cemented for all to see with the closing of their academy and their official club statment certifying their regional irrelevance, that we announce a magnificent new academy and then one of our two billionaire owners is even filthier rich. Such that he could buy their club with the money he drops down the back of his settee.

Let's hope he treats himself (and by himself, I mean us) to something nice in the January sales.

The thought had crossed my mind. ;)

Surprised that Wes wasn't on the list as well.

They're a bit out of date with that list as Nassef Sawiris is now currently worth 8 billion dollars according to Forbes (Kroenke at Arsenal is now 8.3 billion).

I think Edens' worth is harder to pin down because a lot of his work and investment is through Fortress.  The only tangible things financial journalists have to work on are his share in the Bucks and the money he made from selling Fortress to Softbank.  What is unclear is how much of a stake he has in the recent entities he set up  (for example, New Fortress Energy and Brightline trains). 

New Fortress Energy floated a year or two back and currently has a market cap of 8 billion dollars - what that means for Wes, I don't know.
