    He'd probably be here for the milestones: purchasing the land, breaking ground, building envelope closed - (who doesn't like to walk through a construction site?), opening ceremony.

    I don't think the superrich need an excuse to travel to NYC or to check on their 9 figure investments.

    The super rich have many investments that they split their time between. How often over the last few years has he previously checked on this 9 figure investment - he's rarely mentioned as being around?

    An odd week to come too considering we don't have a home match, though we was probably here for the Chicago game.

    I wonder where he stays while he's here. What mega apartment does CFG have? Or what hotel?

    And considering Man City has a Champions League game today.

    Inventory:

    A guy like that doesn't come here for no reason. Sure, maybe his schedule was free, but you want to tell me that his schedule and Marty Edelman's schedule were conveniently available for two days?

    I'm not saying this is definitely stadium related, but I would love to see what his calendar was over the two days we know he was here.

    He may have one also, but you're probably talking about the Abramovich yacht

    I looked it up, I guess Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of UAE, got it.

    No, Khaldoon is just Mansour's (i.e. CFG's actual owner) business guy, the man he appoints to chair various companies he owns. Mansour himself owns a $500m yacht, though... (he's also the son of Khalifa, who 413Blue413Blue mentioned above)

    In high school I co-owned a 14 foot row boat that my friends and I used to fish for largemouth bass in a local reservoir. #partoftheyachtclub

    He´s often in New York actually... In business that is, unless there´s a Tufts reunion, a NY Univ board meeting or something
    CEO of a $100bn company and regarded as the right hand man of the Abu Dhabi crown prince.
    A mover and shaker in UAE for sure.

    On the 2019 Season: "The season has started a couple of months ago. We started good. I think we're in a good place. We've got new players. We've refreshed the model there. We have got youngers players in New York."

    "I'm very bullish about New York. I think we're getting it, we're getting to understand it very well. We'll crack it, we'll crack it, it's just a matter of time."
