Fotball fans vs International capital

This is one of the best news I have heard in a very long while. Read the whole article if you have any interest in football and the global economy.

In short: Football fans, Liverpool fans!!!, are planning to take a fight with the two US businessmen/tycoons (Gillette and Hicks) who recently bought our fine club. I have been disturb by quite a few things that the US tycoons have done.

Examples: When we didn’t play well, they held secret talks with another manager. And in the US, they have said that they would save the profit made on Liverpool FC (and their fans), and spend it on the US sports teams they own as well. And one of them (Hicks) is a good friend of George W. Bush. That totally messed up my view of the world: My favorite football club bought by a friend of W...

But now we are fighting back and I will follow this initiative closely. And I am totally fine if you think I am insane admiring an English football club so much. But I have to inform you that I am willing to buy my small share of Liverpool FC.

Should there be a Salary Cap in Football?
Personally I think there should be! It’s just getting to be stupid money in football at the top of the premiership!
It’s always the same teams at the top proving that football success is based purely on money which ruins the idea of it being a sport! They’ve done it in rugby, basketball, hockey and American football and it makes the sports more competitive and better to watch!
I do a little Spread Betting from time to time and most matches don’t hold much surprise who is going to win, its boring! I want to see a team at the bottom pulling off an amazing season beating last seasons winners in a close fought battle!
Make things fair! It shouldn’t be about money!
All there is all that money in the premiership and barely any of it stays in the UK so it’s not even helping the economy!
From my Spread Betting, if I ever win big (which is never, I’m unlucky) it’s still nothing compared to the average premiership players weekly wage!
