So is he sole owner or is anyone in myanmar involved?

So if AR knows the value of buying La Liga rights for the UK, surely he knows the value of LUFC being in the Prem?

And with his other TV deals, live streaming of a successful LUFC in Asia could be worth hundreds and hundreds of millions

No mate. I'm there.

When everyone was doubting him he bought Roberts and Forshaw

Our luck neither played much if at all but the quality and both young and British and in turn expensive

As Marsh has just tweeted last night

Football is used as an escape from all of life's shi-te, so give all the downbeat utterly depressed morons a swerve.

Our squad needs work but they're definitely building from the bottom. Youth

No Batty4 your not he,s a businessman and it would seem a damn good one .I think he will have learned from this season's mistakes and do better in the transfer window this time around.
Im not saying we will be top 2 next season but I do expect to be in the top 6 
As BB says he knows the value of LUFC being in the Prem and I still believe he has every intention of getting us there

i dont think Radz can afford another repeat this summer, if he fuks this up again, i can see the supporters turning on him - more then they already are

go big or go home, its time

I haven't given up on him at all. Don't get me wrong he has made mistakes but hey he's learning the trade so to speak and has been quite badly advised I feel.

You have to give him chance to see how he learns from his mistakes. We all make them and its not the making of mistakes that's bad , its the failing to learn from them that's criminal. This tour is his biggest mistake in my eyes but if its used to convey a message of peace and unity then its not a bad thing entirely. Here's hoping for an exciting pre season

Me too mate.this season was an expriment to see if he could do it on the cheap,looked fuckin sexy after 6 games......but he needs to have a big summer transfer window,minimum 5 1st team starters needed

I’m still with him. I ain’t gonna turn at every opportunity. As just said. He’s learning on his feet. Don’t mix politics with sport! At the height of the troubles in NI I went to see my team play Glentoran for their centenary. As catholic I cared not a jot. I was watching LUFC end of.. it will be blown up(excuse the pun) cos it’s us. If we get lots of dollar and it helps the club all well and good. Is anyone suggesting England should boycott This World Cup or the next? No.

It does not matter who we bring in players wise until we have a game structure and the the players understand it. Since Christmas we have looked extremely preschool playground-esk.

Kinnear is working on building our club commercially which includes bring money in to make things easier for squad management.

It is Orta that needs to get things correct and that is buying better suited players. The way we have recruited for the under 23's is correct for next year and beyond but now he needs to work on now type players..

So what role does RADZ play? He has not closed the purse strings as clearly shown by the purchases he has funded. In my eyes he is doing his job.

I think Gabrielle said it best when she said -

Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you gotta be strong

I still believe, but my God this season has been annoying, we have fallen apart again ( as the joy division song doesn't say).

I think he should have a fans group that advises him on club activities.
" radz mate, that badge, bit shi.t"
"Radz mate, Maynmar , bit wrong"
"Radz mate, Heckingbottom, bit Sh. It"
"Radz mate, orta, wtf"
"Radz mate, Grot, urm yeh grot"

Apart from making baffling decisions that have again left us fans short changed again this season and likely next season, I am still with him. My expectations have finally been lowered to the level that staying in the championship is acceptable.

I don't really know what point I am trying to make here, I think the fact that there will be fans that stay to clap the players tomorrow says it all.
Players, overpaid, under performing, still reeling from being bullied by millwall in September.
Are we fans or fluffers. Tickling the players bo.llo.cks in the hope they perform. I for one won't be fluffing .

Rumours suggest that investment is coming into the club - a takeover or someone buying a percentage? I suspect the latter. That might make all the difference next season re player investment - but I truly believe that nothing will change in terms of on-the-field progress until Orta is either dismissed or given a completely different role (away from the 1st team).

Hard to figure out what Radrizzani's true wealth is.

If one of his companies has just outbid Sky then that suggests he's minted

He currently owns us, a potential jackpot if he gets us up. To go all Cellino and try ease the burden by selling a portion suggests otherwise

AR is staying very quiet of late . Next few days should bring some clarity I hope . The tour is another unnecessary distraction.

But it was 'only' £18 million to outbid Sky, wasn't it? A good move on his part.

He's already probably invested the best part of £100 million into the club, so I can see him wanting outside investment to take us forward. Orta is the stumbling block - I can only hope that anyone who injects cash into the club will do so on the proviso that he's moved away from 1st team recruitment!

I might be a tad optimistic here,but if Rad gets his act together this summer and brings in players like Bartley and Marriott.... Maybe then,Yazz said it best with; "The only way is up"

I think it was something in the region of £54 million.He sold his old media company for £450m and people assume that's the sum of his wealth.I suggest it's on a portion of it...how a big a portion is anyone's guess but he will coin it in from the LA liga deal.

Does Radz not still own a % of MP & Silva?
Isn't Radz still a board member at MP & Silver?
Isn't Radz on the board of the company (Baofeng) who bought shares in MP & Silver?
Before selling 65% of MP & Silver the company made a profit of 600m the year before. How much went to Radz?

Think there maybe a few other companies he is involved in and make me wonder how much time he spend with our club and how much he leaves to Kinnear, Orta, Bravo.

No it is probably a simple cash injection by AR to cover costs until the new season starts.

Monies from ST sales do not get given to the club until games are played, as far as I understand.

If shares were sold to another investor, there would have been the need to get FL approval first and no-one has heard any rumorous of a buyer so I would discount that.

rumours have been around for weeks saying Radz has sold between 10 and 20% to an American investor.

EDIT: Exclusive - Leeds United set for cash injection as Andrea Radrizzani prepares to sell minority

So he is selling 10% for 9 million to a company he himself is a chairmen of?
Is this right?
So is it a way around the Income spending rule allowing him more room this transfer periond?

I wonder if this was how Wolves got around the FFP to pay over £15 million for Neves.....

He did say he asked the questions about Wolves because if it was legal then he would do it himself!

This is what most fans seem to forget sometimes (me included).... That even if your owner is filthy rich,he can't just go and buy a player for 10-15 million.. because FFP doesn't allow it.... so he has to go out and find investors or loopholes to make money available for transfers without breaking FFP rules.....

doesnt his mates from MP Silva work out of American and current own Miami?

it isn't, no money has changed hands, its Greenfield LTD, the company that owns us, converting a debt Leeds owe them, into shares - (Leeds are owned by Greenfield, which is owned by ASER, which is owned by Radz)

Greenfield converts money owe to them by the club into Shares
they sales the shares - rumoured to be a foreign investor
they gets there money(the debt) back

im assuming and it only a guess, the debt, is the money Radz put in to paid of GFH

I like the way the new investor describes Leeds United as "storied", " I could tell thee a tale or two old cock ! ".
Could be good news this if the funds do as stated go on transfers.
If we have money then I am sorry Heck but I would rather trust a seasoned manager with it. If we don't have money then stick with Heck, IMO.
