You have to wonder why a German business would invest in a Scottish football club, when there are many dozens of German Football Clubs that could have been invested in?

*Breaking News*

1883 new flats to be built by German construction company on Halbeath road after local football team goes to the wall.

Is 1883 intentional or a mere coincidence that it happens to be the year we were founded?🤔
How appropriate nonetheless!😎👍

What's involved here? Is it the club that's been sold or does the sale include East End Park?

The new owners get the option to buy East End in a few years.

Eine erstklassige Seite für Lidl GmbH or Aldi GmbH!😏
Otherwise just for PARrot......"a prime site for a Lidl or Aldi".😄

Heidcase! There is already an Aldi next door.

This has certainly changed things at EEP. Massive surprise and there are positive and negative posts pouring in.
They are not asset strippers, They look like a decent group with good intentions. lots of people concerned and asking plenty questions though.

They have an option to buy the company that owns EEP in 2004.
I wouldn't be surprised or upset if they sold it to a developer and built a new, more economic stadium. I'm not sentimental about bricks and mortar.

They are dealing with the current board who are exemplary. I think they wouldn't have touched us with a bargepole if the crowd we threw out were still in charge.

It's amazing what you can get away with using Google Translate! 😉

For those needing a quick translation:

Good afternoon from the Pars, my kind neighbours. Welcome back to the championship. I look forward to the old rivalry resuming on the fitba' field.
I can't believe this thread is still at the top of the forum after seven years.


Lol. the translation apps are really helpful but you have to be careful. Sometimes they make a total erse of it.

1) Why bother with one when you could have two and be Aldi/Lidl central for West Fife!🤔
2) Turned up a bit late for that one!😏

As in Irish Gaelic, of course. 🙄

Shamlessly stolen from another channel but this guy puts across strong points




I've read everything with an open mind, but I do feel uncomfortable about it. The key to it is knowing what their motivation is - at the moment that isn't clear. Given that they have no real care about DAFC as the current board and we as fans do, you'd have to expect that they intend to profit financially somewhere along the line. If they didn't it just wouldn't make any sense at all.

So, how do they propose to do this? Scottish football is hardly known as a vehicle for making money so I'm a bit perplexed by it. If someone can improve things for DAFC and make money for themselves in teh process I don't have any great philisophical objection to that, but how can that be done?

Can anyone think of any past examples where similar arrangements ahve been successful? Fergus McCann at Celtic is the obvious one, but beyond that I'm really struggling. What's the worst case - something like Anelka at the Rovers?

When the club made it out of 2012/13 alive, I was impressed that provision was put in place to prevent any one shareholder having overall control. In the various statements today it's stated that the plan is for this group to own >75% in time, which means they would have complete control. Such a shareholding will allow them to pass any special resolution and nobody can do anything about it. That provision was put in back in 2013 to prevent a Masterton-type situation arising again and so in my view it's regrettable that such a safeguard is about to be destroyed.

There is some conflicting data out there, but it seems they are buying 30% now and have an option to buy another 45.1% by either May 2022 or 2024. There is also the EEP control involved.

Can anyone comment on the practicality of redevelopment of EEP, as that might be a factor in this investment. The location doesn’t strike me as prime commercial and residential doesn’t seem a fit.

East End Park is a prime residential site, no question.

But they're utterly mad if they go ahead with this.

Indeed Biggles.
I'd forgotten when purring up PARrot about German supermarkets that Halbeath Road has more than its fair share of bungalows and semi detached houses.
A desirable part of the town (I don't subscribe to the city nonsense) in which East End Park could be a desirable private housing estate with Leishman Lane, Pars Place, Stein Street or McCathie Mews among the choice of street names. There is also the option of Administration Avenue!😉

Some French lad and his consortium put £200k into the Rovers a while back, I'm sure it'll all work out fine. Wink
