Any solid info on the FSG merge eds?

{Ed002's Note - Billy Beane is a self-confessed Liverpool supporter and owns much of the Oakland As and is the "moneyball" guru. But whilst FSG would like an investor to sell part of Liverpool to (particularly given their major financial issues at the moment), it is questionable where any of the high-profile expensive EPL sides has the growth potential of other sides across Europe. Clubs like Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea will see growth potential flatten out whilst the chance of growth remains elsewhere - and remember these folks are investing other people's money - not their own. As such they have a plan to merge with FSG rather than invest in it. Noteworthy is that the former Premier League chair Richard Scudamore has joined the board of Billy Beane’s RedBall Acquisition Corporation who have guarantees from investors circa $500M. That mean they have the investment funds to beyond a merger and look to buy a decent club in mainland Europe or the lower end of the Premier League as well.}

Ed02, I heard Billie Bean on a podcast where he explains the whole Moneyball concept and all that and you are correct (not surprising, I know) . Not only does he know his stuff, he is VERY well-informed about all things LFC and he himself said as a result of his good relationship with FSG, he had become a huge LFC fan. Seems to be a very huge follower of AZ Alkmaar and Brentford (who ironically use Moneyball) . The guy is a genius, IMO.
