Donald Trump to the rescue?

 

To answer your question, no.

 

Has anything other than the fact that he wants to build a golf course in the area and he has money occured? Any subtle hints in one of his quotes? Any enquiries? Any contact? Any links? Or you just adding 2 and 2 and getting 3248 coz it'd nice to use his money to improve out team?

Trump would only put money in if he thought he could get money. If was looking to buy a football team he would not look to Scotland.

 

The fake Scottishness he has portrayed over the last few years is sickening and totally for PR and PR for his new venture. He is a sycophant who cant have a building or property he owns not emblazoned with his own surname.

 

On the slightest chance that he ever thought for a second of investing in AFC, his preamble would be to rename the club The Trump Soccer Franchise - Scotchland or some other ludicrous name and change our strips to the Trump tartan.

Mr Trump isn't really interested in investing/wasting his own money on anything.

 

What he tends to do is to get some other muggins (banks/businesses/tv companies/actual rich dudes) to invest the money in his ideas and if it goes well, then everyone stands to make a fortune - but if it doesnae, it tends to be the other daft bastard that loses their investment whilst DT keeps himself well insulated. They quite often go quite badly...

The idea therefore, that he would piss his own money away on a football team he knows nothing about and cares less about, is laughable in the extreme.

 

Estimates of his personal wealth actually vary wildly - with some claiming he is worth pretty much hee-haw (and is in fact in debt up to his eye-balls) and himself claiming to be a billionaire just because he thinks he is one...

Interesting links stubo, puts very different slant on things.

 

Read this thread as had jotted down something Trump said on Apprentice USA ... "In business it's not only important to make money, but it's also important to give something back to the community"

 

From your quotes stubo, my hopes of a Trump funded stadium are definitely delusional!!

Donald Trump is still encountering many problems with his plans for the area so maybe he'd

be interested in investing in Aberdeen Football Club. Perhaps he could throw some money in

build us a new stadium or both. You just never know.

 

no chance he'd pit money intae us

The way things are going, whoever was going to put money into AFC would need to be delusional!!!

 

Fucking hell...  :(

on a slightly different note, talking about investment, has anyone in the oil industry EVER invested in Aberdeen?

 

Apparenlty it was offered back in the early 80s but the old Donald family essentially told them to fuck off because football sponsorship by independant companies was a ridiculous idea  ::):hammer:

 

If this is indeed true then it ranks up with the Ayr united board of the mid 80s telling an up and coming business man with the surname Murray to fuck off for similar reasons. So he promptly did to his second choice down Govan way.  ::):hammer:

 

Only chance of an oil company investing in this club is if they need the land in and around pittodrie to build a new refinery

 

all councils are bent and Aberdeen is bust just now

 

the very least the Trump should be told is that if he paid for the new community stadium then his plans for the huge development will be looked on more favourably

 

Why would ABERDEEN-SHIRE COUNCIL see a stadium being built in the ABERDEEN CITY COUNCIL jurisdiction as any kind of compromise to fucking up Balmedie?  ???

My r*n***s supporting mate was round earlier and we spoke about this.  Shell wanted to sponsor us and Chris Anderson actively encouraged it but Dick Donald didn't want their name on the front of our shirts (or anyone's name, for that matter).  So he compromised with Anderson and let our training tops be sponsored by Hydrasun. Good move, Dick!
