    i am finding it a little interesting how the recent acqusitions of english soccer clubs by american football team owners( manchester united and most recently aston villa by randy lerner)are now starting a sudden interest in the possible purchase of other clubs.
    Can the two sports run hand in hand??...from an american point of view i ask this question...say New england pats bought hmmm lets say celtic football club or tottenham hotspur fc would you football fans really be interested in the soccer half of the family?...would you buy merchandise??
    obviously the manchester united global branding could bring in millions....but aston villa?? randy lerner must see something i dont except the ?30 million a year from sky sports tv...but that will or needs to be pumped back into the club to keep them in the top flight...

    waddaya all think??

    Do "Peace Activists" and "Human Rights Liberals" enjoy Soccer.

    I watched parts of a Soccer Game on the history channel the other night and it looked like a reenactment of WWII, the people were killing each other with chairs, is that coming to America, don't we have enough trouble in Iraq and the Abba Dabba Prison.

    "Mommy, can we go to the soccer game"
    "No dear we haven't got any helemts"
