I would rather Centricus...

Heard somewhere Roman and Chelsea board will prefer a bid from personal in a consortium rather led by a financial institution directly

So how much money does Boehly's consortium have? 😬

I think the net worth of Boehly, Wyss and Goldstein combined sits at around £8 - 10bn.

They are also being backed by Clearlake Capital which hold around $60bn of assets under management.

Reports last week were that Boehly's overall consortium was now over funded, so one would assume the capital is there to buy the club and sort the stadium out.

The overall direction of the club moving forward will be interesting to see. From what has been reported, Boehly looks at the Liverpool model of making sure scouting, data, etc is on point and then looking to add a player or two each summer to specifically improve the team but if such a player isn't available then not to buy for the sake of it.

Sounds good!

Maybe as someone wrote on twitter .. Moneyball but with a big wallet 🤤

Another bonus with Boehly is that I think he’ll want to make a nice initial splash to win the supporters over and prove his dedication to maintaining our current level.

So if he wins the bid I think we’ll be in for a very nice summer. And hopefully our business starts with locking down Rüdiger and Tuchel to long deals.

Blitzer and Harris are some of the money behind Martin Broughton and British politician Sabastian Coe, just so no one gets confused

Centricus is a consortium too, and all 4 mains are British and are season Chels ticket holders for ages.

Total worth is over £50 billion.

The firm partnered with Jonathan Lourie of Cheyne Capital and Bob Finch of Talis Capital on the bid.

If this is accurate, we dodged a (Glazers) bullet thinking they were loaded and were going to spend spend spend.

Boehly seems like the most logical choice. One thing is for sure, there will be investment in the team, but the days of just throwing 300M at the team is going to be over. The club will need to produce its own revenue. It is going to be different for sure.

I realize a transaction this massive takes time, but I hope we don’t have to go another week or more of this. Just tiny bits of progress squeaking out drip by drip.
