Steve Parish has huge plans for the future of Crystal Palace FC; all of which he hopes will be helped along massively by the recent investment we’ve received from US billionaires Josh Harris and David Blitzer.
This interview with Steve Parish offers both excitement and comfort in equal measure. Palace fans who may have been worried about the intentions of our new US investors have no reason for alarm if this is anything to go by.
Called in for a chat with Sky Sports News following the American duo’s arrival, Parish has offered some context over what the exact terms of the agreement stipulate; given the shift in stakeholding that each of the original four-man consortium have agreed to.
Desperate to push the club forward in the coming years, Parish is quick to bring the redevelopment of Selhurst Park to the forefront of the interview, whilst simultaneously offering assurances over his own involvement in the day-to-day business of the club from this day forward. For all of the media’s misleading headlines until now, the co-owners words in the interview above are sure to soothe any worries you may have had over the intentions of Harris and Blitzer.
It would be easy to get too wrapped up in Palace’s off field developments of late, but Parish also discusses his relationship with Alan Pardew and the team’s fine form since August. Having worked so hard to put the club in a position of power within the Premier League, his words here allude to the hard work that lays ahead if we are to continue along the same path.
Understandably proud of Palace’s success since 2010, Parish, along with an ever-growing band of fellow investors are looking towards the next step with genuine hope rather than trepidation, and who could blame them?
As has been the case with a great deal of the news surrounding the club of late, the above video is almost certain to make you smile. As if being sixth at Christmas wasn’t a good enough present, we also appear to be on the verge of changes that will alter the face of Crystal Palace FC forever.
