If Nassef runs a bit short of cash, he could always speak to the Sawiris family who are reportedly worth about $36bn!

Has there been some news about FFP today? Had a text about it from a mate but came here for insight.

There has been a suggestion that UEFA will scrap FFP in favour of something else but not a lot more than that.

Sounds shady. Where was this mate texting from?

Read the Mail yesterday and was surprised that 1 of the owners (the poorer one) is not worth as much as Lerner when he owned the club.

Think Lerner lost a lot in the Financial crash and then a costly divorce

No one should be irreplaceable (apart from Jack). If he cannot contribute enough towards our future war chests then I think we should start looking at buying another owner.

Edens is happily married though, right? Or else he's sorted out a pre-nup.

Something that Edens has that Lerner didn't is the knowledge and experience of owning a 'sports franchise' and making it successful. The fact that he's a billionaire in his own right alongside a much wealthier billionaire makes it a completely different prospect. Edens and Sawiris were very quick to start putting into place a good structure. You only have to compare the appointment of Christian Purslow to some of the CEO's that Lerner appointed to see the difference.

What I like about these 2 (and Purslow) so far is that they talked about investing in youth and then followed through rather than shuffling the deckchairs as we've seen from others.

I think one of the reasons for wanting to own a football club was the opportunities they could see through player development.
