    Well when was the last time Wall st screwed up anything else?? …oh, right.

    Jesus! Jose is gone. His management stints are getting shorter every time. He’s lost his touch, how long is it since he won anything? He is good craic though.

        Oooof! Like a free kick to the crotch. That would be incredible, take down JP Morgan. They are so destructive in the world economy.

    The ESL shows what is wrong with football and the world. The mighty dollar tops everything. I wonder if franchises will move to Beijing/Singapore/Tokyo within 10 years, or will it take 20?

    Corporates be Corporating.
    Only Game in town.
    Don’t know whether to be happy/sad or surprised about this.
    If I was a shareholder, I might be looking forward to the money.
    If I was a mere stakeholder, I might be miffed.
    As someone who enjoys watching soccer free to air, I presume it will be PPV?
    I won’t be buying any season tickets.

    There are other things to be upset about though.

    Interesting -The guardian have pointed out that a lot of the Teams use the City names with permission from the local councils. SO if that permission is taken away?? Fancy watching a “Mersey Reds” game anyone?

    FFS. Look up how many times JP Morgan have been fined due to their criminal activity. They paid just under a billion dollars in fines due to market rigging last year alone. They are literally a criminal enterprise. Maybe introduce jail terms for these scumbags and start jailing their execs, instead of letting them sponsor leagues.
