EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Before starting this piece in earnest, I think it's only fair to acknowledge my personal view about the Glazer family's ownership of Manchester United.

Too often, though, actions taken place in the board room or at the negotiating table take away from the entertainment displayed on the field. At times, the aggressiveness and sometimes greediness of clubs leads to failure on the field.

Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

By Ollie Irish

No, Norwich City fans have not taken over at Old Trafford. Disgruntled Man Utd fans have adopted their club's original, Newton Heath colours green and gold as a way of protesting against Malcom Glazer's debt-happy ownership.

It's a high-visibility strategy, but let's be honest, not one that is likely to make much of an impact.

Club Owners Welcome?? – The Bundesliga must obsess with the “50+1-Rule”

Bundesliga Talk at related • 1 view

Â

It was a short but very important message, when Bundesliga-club Hannover 96 addressed a petition to the DFL and DFB to abolish the "50+1-Rule".

 The "50+1-Rule" implies that one person can only hold shares by the size of 49% of a club. Because of this, a prospect club owner has no majority vote and cannot conduct the club operations.

Foreign Invasion Continues

It seems a bit of a lop sided war going on between the Non-Americans and America in the soccer world. The Yanks invade England with the Glazers buying Manchester United. So the non-Americans retaliate by adding a team in the MLS, Chivas USA. Cleveland Browns owner, hungry to buy another mediocre team in a stagnant city buys Aston Villa.

Debt is a depressing term. Nobody likes the word, especially when the term is thrown about your beloved football club. This week we've seen a farce of court cases, public outcries , passionate scousers, and as far as I'm concerned, the take over of Twitter, that is the Liverpool FC situation with the Royal Bank of Scotland and the current owners of the club, Tom Hicks & George Gillet.

160 miliardi di euro: è questo il patrimonio di Sulaiman Al Fahim, nuovo padrone del Manchester City: una cifra da far impallidire Roman Abramovich ma soprattutto il patron dell'United, Malcom Glazer. I nuovi proprietari del City non sembrano proprio disposti ad accettare per il proprio l'etichetta di seconda squadra di Manchester: dopo aver dato uno "schiaffo" al magnate russo di Londra strappandogli Robinho, e dopo aver costretto i Red Devils a dissanguarsi per evitare di vedersi soffiato Berbatov, trovano sempre più conferme le notizie di un interessamento del City per Ronaldo.

With the season half over and Blanco and Beckham about to join their respective teams (Chicago and Los Angeles), I thought it would be good to go through each team in the league and summarize the moves they've made coming into and during the 2007 season.
