More like FSG I think. Broehly seems like a real smart operator.

I’ll admit that I don’t know the full ins and outs of how Boehly operates, but his tenure at the LA Dodgers has essentially involved massively outspending every other MLB franchise (including the Yankees and Red Sox) and creating a winning team by spending more money than everyone else on established superstars like Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman or trading for established superstars like Trea Turner.

He’s not going to be able to outspend everyone else in the Premier League. Will have to find a way to compete beyond financial muscle.

Yeah, we aren't outspending City, United and Newcastle so as with you guys we'll need to be smarter about how we do business. Listening to Boehly talk he seems to know this, this will be his baby and I guess time to come out of Mark Walters shadow and do it all for himself so to speak.

That seems to be a focus with the stadium upgrade earmarked a way to increase revenue.

Happy to see the light at the end of a pretty dark tunnel.

We’ll still bag trophies. It’s in our DNA.

Well it was well hidden in your DNA before Abramovich money came along. You may not remember that period
Was it?

I remember winning stuff before Roman, not as many trophies but we still did win some. I'll never forget the start of this game.

Oh yeah they did win some trophies and good luck but would say ‘bag’ them or in their DNA as being a fair bit over the top
