To paraphrase Bpb Lord, one time Chairman of Burnley F.C.

When successful businessmen enter football club boardrooms, their business sense goes out of the window.

I have no reason to doubt he would and if he is as "crooked" as you believe, I'm also sure that if there is a way to offset the losses of a wholly owned subsidiary within a group of Companies against the profits of another when tax is calculated he would be wise enough to understand it.
My question is, if we are looking at a hybrid model, which I take to mean we will not give up total ownership to somebody, is that kind of thing possible or would the model prevent it?
