American Owners and Football Clubs...

...DO NOT MIX.

Liverpool. United, the club I support, may have a deep rivalry with them, but I respect them, however, their owners are a disgrace to the game. They blocked Liverpool's signing of desperately needed Gareth Barry. Liverpool need firepower to fire their way back into the big title races. United's American Owners, the Glazier Family, are keeping their fat noses out of our club affairs (thankfully) and that's how it should be. Ownership in Football should be left to Supporter's Trusts, like the old days, when Shareholders United, or the Manchester United Supporters Trust, and similar groups ran the Clubs. Sadly, gone are the old days, but I do hope owners will one day realize they're there to invest money, and to serve as figureheads on the board. Nothing else.

What to liverpool have to lose by getting another mid? Especially one who can find the back of the net? United are only a few good seasons away from breaking Liverpool's all-time success record. When do they plan on winning the league again?

We've won it three times already mate, check your statistics before you make claims that 5 is impossible. Real Madrid, Inter Milan, United and Chelsea have the capability to dominate the league for the next 10 years.

This conversation actually reminded me of something. It's a chant I sang when United won the Champions League this year.

"We've won it three times!
We've won it three times!
Without killing anyone,
We've won it three times!"
