I'm still not sure what a best case scenario or worst case scenario would mean to us.

Ironically they are the same at this point. Li is no longer owner, technically. As such, Elliott is the new owner. Until further notice.

Yep, the club is now in Elliot's hands, and according to what came out from the CAS hearing yesterday, they plan on keeping it for at least 3 years and re-structure it completely. I think this is for the best.

How Li came about is still a mystery to me, and imo, it has to be something corrupt that went down. It just doesn't make any sense that he would not take the Commisso offer only to let Elliot take possession of the lcub and he loses out on over 500m. Just ludicrous to think that this is how it played out by accident. Something awful smelling went down, either between Li and Fininvest/Silvio or between Li and Elliot, because it just doesn't make any sense for himto default on the 38m and hand over the club when a 500m offer plus a 25% share is on the table. In no alternate universe does that make any sense

Anyway, I think this is really what the club needs, to finally be run like a proper business. And maybe we won't be back as quick as we'd all hoped after Silvio sold the club, but to finally have a healthy business operation in place is what this club has been craving since Silvio took his eye off the ball and allowed Galliani to run amok

Fassone and Mirabelli need to be shown the door as well. Both have proven to be incompetent in the roles they were given by equally incompetent people.

I wish I can be as optimistic as you. I don't know, I see no proper plan yet..

Likewise, it's a hedge fund. The only plan they have is to sell at the best price they can get. All the in between is extracting as much value for a potential sale.

The club will be sold eventually, but only after it has been brought back on its feet which obviously will increase its value and Elliot will make a profit out of it.

Good thing that Li, Fassone and from what I read Mirabelli as well are out. Leonardo’s appointment is a positive decision IMO. Hopefully we can get Conte, too.

I don't think Conte will be a possibility for now, I read that he wants a break and to settle his legal dispute with Chelsea, but if Rino has a sub-par season, I can see Conte replacing him.

As for Leonardo, I like the moves he made with PSG, but he won't have that kind of budget to work with at Milan. He's definitely got a great eye for talent, not to mention great connections. I don't know if he'll actually be the sporting director though. I've just been reading the director of the technical area. Whatever that means.

A lot of talk of Gazidis coming in as well and Gandini is also almost confirmed. Plus Maldini is supposedly in talks too. So they're definitely planning to build a very strong sporting and business minded group of people to manage the club.

If Leonardo is the new SD, I can't see Rino staying. They had a massive fall out as player and coach, and later when he quit to join Inter it just got worse. There are stories they've put it behind them, but I'm really not sure.

We'll see.

Lot's of stories about Conte today

I don't want to see us burning another bridge with a former player of the stature of Rino, but a shot at Conte is too good to pass up

True, but they are not going to "extract value" unless there is value to extract. So they will focused on "creating value" (or at least not "destroying value"). And you have to assume they have good "business sense". All of this is good news AFAIAC.

You could argue that we burned bridges with Leo, and yet ...

True.

Leo denied the Conte stories, but they won't seem to go away.

I think if there is any shot at Conte this season, Elliot will want Leonardo to take it.

They want instant CL, it's part of their 3 year plan to increase the value of the club, without it we'll continue to fall behind. Rino, unfortunately is a gamble, whichever way you look at it. Conte will provide certain guarantees imo, so going by what I assume is Elliot's MO when doing business, if they have a shot, the won't hesitate and won't let any sort of sentiment get in the way of that.

Hopefully we can still retain Rino if it were to come to that
