Many Crystal Palace fans have been debating reports that an American consortium are looking to invest in the Premier League.
According to the Daily Star, former Liverpool technical director Damien Comolli is heading an American consortium seeking to take over a Premier League club. The Eagles, along with fellow Premier League sides West Ham, Southampton and Newcastle United, are all reportedly on the radar of the US investors.
Comolli was in his role at Liverpool for two years before leaving and the Hammers appear favourites but this is only as long as David Moyes’ men can survive relegation.
Palace fans cannot complain with the recent success their current owner Steve Parish has brought since 2010 as they have managed to stay in the Championship, get promoted to the Premier League in 2013 and stayed in the division since that promotion.
However, he gave a percentage of the club to American owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer since the club have been in England’s top flight and they have not pleased some fans of the south London club . They have wanted to sell for a while now so it makes sense that the Eagles are linked with this new American consortium.
Here is what these Palace fans had to say following the news:

Ha West Han going down. Unless it’s cheaper to buy a Championshio team, rebuild and take them back up? But a massive risk

Here we go…..
Don’t want American owners as they do not seem to be able to marry up the business and emotional aspects of owning a club. Ultimately, they yearn a profit which is often just not there.
