True. However the LFC brand has far greater pull, so it is a lucrative asset regardless of whether the club can actually win anything. Also a serious buyer would no doubt have additional capital set up to improve the playing staff, I would guess?
yes your quite right but as we say for the money being talked about any potential investor is not going to be buying a Club like Liverpool to make money is he not for over a billion pounds...he will be buying it as a toy or play thing and won't be bothered if he gets a return on his investment much like City, Chelsea or PSG etc do for that reason he will more likely buy a Club without the history's so the investor can build his own legacy to that club rather than merely just add to what is an existing one already there...just wouldn't make sense in my opinion with the money involved...


PSG is actually not a club that without history.

Buying a villa for 400m and spending 600m to win something does not guarantee comparable returns on the commercial front.
The club will need to have global fan appeal as a pre-requisite for any interested buyer.

Staveley also represents the likes of DIC, she was the lead on their previous bid to buy us, they are Liverpool fans and and have tried to buy us a few times, so makes sense if they buy a club, why they would want us, they were close to a deal before Moores sold to H&G, which was a big mistake by Moores.

They have probably seen the impact Man City have had on Abu Dhabi profile world wide, for a relatively small investment for Abu Dhabi in buying City, the City success has made them globally known.

Here is an article from 2008 showing DIC and Staveley's trying to buy us before FSG:

Agree.

And there is one more interesting point in the financial aspect.

We all know the FFP rule is not going to work 100%. However, it have imposed some restrictions for the owners, expecially new one.

If someone purchases Villa and want to invest 600M, they cannot simply get their cheque book and pay. They need to increase the revenue first so that the spending is justifiable.
They normally do it by getting huge sponsor deals (which is paid by themselves) or selling the stadium naming rights to themselves etc.
However, UEFA is likely to investigate into those deals stricter than before. There is no way they can impose a 600M sponsor deal to a middle club straight away and use that cash to invest on players immediately.
It may take more time for the new owners to inject those funds to the clubs in a form of turnover.
Nowaday, it is not that easy to pass through the FFP. The FFP doesnt work perfectly, but it works in someway to prevent owners to splash cash in a ridiculas way in one or two transfer windows somehow.
