Who are yah!… Do foreign owners feel the force?

dave clarkeAs more and more English Premier League teams fall under foreign ownership I have to wonder why are they doing it. Hardly any of these owners show up and when they do, like the owners of Liverpool, they look rather silly with new scarves and flags to wave. And, boy is it costing them a lot of money.

However I do think Roman Abramovich is beginning to behave like any football fan with a lot of money would. Go to every game, buy the best players in the world, sack the manager every time your team loses.

The latest Premier League owners are the billionaire Saudi Arabian oil-rich brothers Al-Faraj, led by Ali, who have completed the second takeover of Portsmouth inside 42 days.

It will be interesting to see if they act like Abramovich and take some time away from sailing the Med to have pie and chips at their local football ground. And how excited will they be if they draw Southampton in the cup?

I think Roman will enjoy these highlights more than Ali…
