Another day, another US investor linked in takeover talk..

It's a funny old game all right, not so long ago we were told that Americans didn't like 'soccer', now it seems not a day goes by without a new US investor being linked to an English team. The latest name is Paul Allen, who is a former Microsoft big noise and US sports franchise owner. Apparently he sees Southampton as a good investment, the Saints are being described as 'a sleeping giant' and Allen wants to take the brand global.

I'm not sure about a sleeping giant, the Saints along with Portsmouth are the biggest clubs on the English South West coast, beyond that few apart from their own fans would call them big clubs.

If Allen wants to purchase an English club, then there's bigger clubs that are currently up for sale, Newcastle and Man City to name but two.

  1. I know this is off topic but are Manchester United fans aware that Wayne Rooney has, unwittingly, been dubbed as satan worshippers by the lunatic right wing fringe group, the Scottish Christian Party.

    Why because you are called the Red Devils!
