    Net Wealth, Investment & TB


    14 Not allowed!
    There is much speculation about TBs net worth, it ranges from £1bn to £1.7bn, with many saying around £1.2bn.

    He's pumped at least £300m into the club or a quarter of his net worth, remembering that net worth is all assets and not just cash.

    So he's put a huge amount on the line and it's only when you do this that you actually understand what it's like, what continually goes through your head and why certain decisions are made and people become casualties of your decisions.

    People may criticise TB for dismissing Chris but if you had a quarter of ALL your assets wrapped up in a football club would you leave it to chance having nearly lost a massive earning / repayment opportunity?

    I think we need to really understand what this investment is, what it could cost him and try to walk in his shoes before we say how we'd handle it.

    We have a lot to be thankful for and a huge debt of gratitude to Chris, but even more so to TB.

      Very true but if we got relegated with or without Hughton, Blooms investment would have taken a hit but 300 million would not disappear overnight.
      Brighton & Hove Albion will be there long after the current players, manager,chairman......thanks to who?...you of course!

      But it would be worth a damn sight less

      No one really has a clue what TB is worth. I don’t think that changes the point you are making but I find it very, very unlikely that he has put a quarter of his net worth into the club.
      Well the thirty minutes are almost up Swindon fans but your not there yet. in it goes (yyyyyyeeeessssssss) ooohhh its gone in, Brighton in added on time have snatched a goal through Virgo!!! Incredible!! Once again there is late, late, late drama in the playoffs!!

      Of course it wouldn't, but repayment would be protracted and the value of Brighton & Hove Albion FC would have dropped overnight. If a business is valued either on revenue or profit both metrics would've seen the value reduce dramatically.

      I was once told it was £5bn with all his assets and property etc but then again somebody who said he was ITK said it was only about £500m, who really knows

      I think the only way you can judge it is by taking the estimates of five or six reputable sources and averaging.

      The fact that he manages to stay off the Sunday Times Rich List year after year tells me that he is very good at disguising his new worth. I believe it's at the high end of the estimates.
      England are still the only team to have won the World Cup wearing red shirts.

      I have it on good authority from a Palace fan, that he is only worth 50 million, all the rest is borrowed.
