Mark Campbell was after the stadium, I spoke to him at length at the first (I think) 'meet and greet' session and it was obvious that he was naïve to think he could get the stadium for nothing from Falkirk Council. He said FC owed FFC £7M and he would write that off if they handed over their stake, stating it was 'a very good deal' in his own words. Falkirk Council would never sell and probably never will sell their stake in the stadium. I don't know if there is a clause in the original deal (like PFI), that Falkirk will eventually own the stadium albeit at an over inflated price but I would doubt that very much. I believe that this type of arrangement protects the stadium in times where FFC might go into administration and nobody gets a stadium or the land where it sits, on the cheap.
Phil Rawlins would appear to be after a stake in the club for a miniscule amount of money (26% I seem to have read on here or elsewhere, can't remember) and looking at the money being banded around with MC, it looks like 26% would cost you around £75k. They are putting in 6 figure sum, which probably is money for a player(s) and some new capital reserve. I'm guessing they are looking to sell when FFC get into the SPL and get a three or 4 fold increase (or indeed more) on their original investment. This isn't unrealistic to get us back into the top league as a few years of decent on the field management should get us there. This seems a very similar model to what he did at both Stoke and Orlando.
After listening to the podcast, they never gave much away about the reasons for choosing Falkirk over the other 2 unknown Scottish clubs (interesting to see who they would be) but I think there is caution to be had where the main reason is 'We went to Scotland on holiday' is stated numerous times. Granted there is more information on PR available on the net and the only negative is his personal life in which I have no interest in at all. I would point out that 5 or 6 investors were involved in the Orlando team and they each put in substantial amounts of money but it did not clearly state how much PR put in.
