Good game and the scoreline doesn't do it justice, if both sides, well more specifically Welbeck and Sturridge, been more clinical it would've been more of a goal fest.

Wellbeck baffles me should have buried several of them attempts but can turn in shots you would never imagine on other days madness. Well played by Liverpool though we were hanging on by the end.

The daily mail really fcb? I wouldn't worry about the Zach Dingle lookalike spouting his usual tripe. Even if the said proposals are true what are the chances of them being passed Richard Scudamore won't hand financial control of the prem to UEFA just like that.

David Gill will if it serves the interests of your club. Not like David Gill doesn't already have experience of selling his soul to the Glazers is it. Thing is, if anything remotely like this happens, owners like the Glazers and their asset stripping will become common place, and you will probably be stuck with them forever, as no one else will be able to afford to buy united, nor will they have any incentive to do so. Happy days.

I don't particularly like it but all the same I accept the fact that football and football clubs is a self serving business nowadays. Would be nice for the premier league to follow the bundesliga model which seemingly has the football and business balance right, a stark contrast to the premier league where business comes first and foremost and football a distant second. With accepting that football is a business I'm also accepting the undeniable truth that everyone involved in the game is in it for their own gain and as such owners asset stripping, taking profits is no shock and will happen at every club regardless of how much the owner initially invests. You'd have to be incredibly naive to think any owner will invest without ever taking something back at some point, whether they asset strip (Hicks and Gillett) or dip into the profits (Glazers/Kroenke) is ultimately up to them. You only need to look at Chelsea where Abramovich has pumped millions into the club but only through loans which the club will have to pay back. I don't think the aim of the proposal is to enforce a status quo and prevent competition but rather to ensure competition and success is achieved in the proper manner. Would it not be far to say that if both Blackburn and Chelsea had they put more money into the infrastructure of the club in the first place, rather than spending millions on players, their success would be more long-term and the financial security of the clubs would be more sound? Chelsea enjoyed the short term success but now are facing the toils of ensuring the club is financially sound for the future and arguably had it not been for their champions league win last season, they would be in ruin now. I understand the fact that competing with the big teams nowadays is much harder to do even with billions of funding but all the same you've only got to look at the spuds to see that it is achievable to compete and break into the top four whilst working within your revenue and developing the foundations of the club, though it requires a lot of patience and careful planning and building.
