You follow the wrong sport if you expect owners not to be in it to increase their wealth. Maybe try cricket? WNBA?
When FSG sell Liverpool the next big guy will come in with the exact same view: an investment.
it depends who the new owners are. I read a great article on BBC couple of years ago, explaining why some billionaire are buying known clubs. There are several reasons for that. First and foremost is the publicity, and somekind of protection. Lets say putin decided he wanted to take all of abromovichs assets in russia. Everybody now knows who that abromovich is, there will be genuine interest from locals and the western media will keep focusing on that news because people will read it. If not for chelsea, then he is another russian and the media will go away because the interest will fade away. The same goes for the arabs, if the royal family gangs up then you are in trouble down there. The other thing is football superstars that you own, can be your influencers for your other ventures.
These clubs are never meant to make money for their owners. They are meant to be in the spotlight, and i personally think that suits us better. How isnt this whole fiasco not sucking the soul of the club but a arab billionaire will do when he spends his money to have us compete for everything?
