yip. man utd are huge, everyone knows who they are that watches football
i think it was 1991 they became a PLC and thats when there fortunes started to change.
i dont really know if its good, the people who bought shares into Man Utd originally when the became a PLC, half of them most likely dont know anyhing
about football, it was a business venture cos, when you look at it, its a company/business. and these guys made money out of it too.
yer, thats true what you said TRD about the money being borrowed, is it all loans? as soon as he reaches 75% that will become the clubs debt, and i
think if that happens there is talk the staduim will be sold.
his Tampa Bay team, are the the biggest in there sport? is it american football hehe. i dont know lol.
if he takes over, some fans are supposed to be saying its bad for football. cos man utd are the biggest, stop treating teams equally, give them more
money cos they are bigger than the rest. e.g. tv deals.
also, hes buying the name... 'Manchester Utd', is this a step to make soccer bigger in the US? like. if you own the bigggest names in a sportz, then
you have Man Utd soccer team, and lets say, he makes a NHL team, a basketball team. and Tampa bay do the same. its like creating a super league
