    Game: You're the Owner

    Let's play a game. Let's say you're a multi-billionaire, you've just convinced Moratti to sell you the club for $600 million (the club is actually worth less but you needed to make a good offer). Now you have full control of Inter, and you plan on injecting $1 billion over the next 10 years into the club. Now, this money doesn't just go for transfers, this is for the full day-to-day operations. How would you, as the owner, spend that money to get Inter out of debt and back to being competitive?

    What would you spend on (stadium/facilities)? What would you get rid of? What players/staff would you go for or let go of?

    Some pieces of financial information about the club courtesy of Forbes and Deloitte Football Money League:

    Financial Info:
    Value (as of May 23, 2013*): $401 million
    Yearly Revenue: $236 million (-18% from last year)
    Operating Income (as of May 23, 2013*): -$89 million
    Debt: 16% of value ($64.2 million)

    Current Yearly Expenses**:
    San Siro Rental: -$16 million
    Player Wages:: -$40.9 million
    Total Expenses: -$56.9 million

    *I realize these values aren't from that date, but let's pretend that they are since those values are only a month or so old.

    **I also realize there are more expenses than those, though I can't find accurate information on what they are (staff wages, marketing, etc). If anyone has a reliable source to this information, feel free to contribute.



    So that's the game, and please be realistic. Don't say you'll spend $200 million on Messi, the truth is Barcelona probably wouldn't let him go even for that much. So you're the owner, you have $1 billion to spend, and go!

    The priority would have to be a new stadium in Milano. A new stadium would increase revenue streams for the club, and over the long run actually reduce costs considerably when you factor in how much we pay to use the San Siro.

    It's an interesting game that we could have a lot of fun with if we had more financial information regarding the club.

    You see people from Colombia, Oceania, Ireland(i think) pretending that at least ONCE in their life they saw a young wc talent arriving and becoming a world star.

    Just a idea: if you want a serious debate about football, you should block everybody from countries that NEVER will win nothing and NEVER will have a balon d'or, for example.
    Whats the point about those guys opinions??? Can i go to some New Zealand chat and start to teach them how to recognize the better wc prospects among young Rugby players?
    Again, if you NEVER saw a young wc prospect struggling in his first years, like Kaka or Ronaldinho who were booed by they local supporters here, how could you judge????

    Buy everything that has legs. Next thing is gonna be changing the club colors to black-white so referees are with us. The remaining referees that don't want to be with us will get paid either in sexual desires by my sporting director Moggi or a fat paycheck.

    if i just buy the team, i'll build a stadium, sell the name of the stadium to an investor, so reduce a bit the expenses, and totally buy at least 3 first class players, the problem i see in this is how do we calculate the fees?

    Upon acquisition of the club, I would hand full financial control over to DirettaInter who is a fiscal and economic genius.

    I'd ask Moratti for advice and do the complete opposite.

    My first move would be to hire Stramaccioni and Branca as my utmost trusted assistants.

    Relieved that this thread didn't pick up, else it had the potential to be the unrealistic squad + formation + interview thread all in one.

    Step 1. Fire Branca, Moratti, Strama, Entire medic staff, entire board.
    Step 2. Get new directors with a clear plan, decent/good background, knowledge of football, A new coach with his preferred coaching team, a new medic team.
    Step 3. Try to build a new stadium, sell the name, get massive sponsors
    Step 4. Tell Chivu, Stankovic, Castellazzi, Schelotto, Pereira, Rocchi, Samuel, Silvestre to fuck off, Tell Milito, Cambiasso to get a 1m contract or else fuck off too, offload dead weight, Acquire starting players (preferable under the age of 27).
    Step 5. ???
    Step 6. Profit.

    I'd give Neon Blade the vice-Presidente role,then crzdcolombian the head scout job and Diretta the financial department and Nerazzurri Ninja would be the coach
