The takeover stinks, but Manchester United sign super player

Ji-Sung Park is without a doubt Korea’s best footballer.

He was very impressive at the last World Cup and now joins stinkers Manchester United. For him it’s a move up the ladder, but just consider the different feelings that each new player will enter Manchester United with. Will new players like Park play different for a team depending on who steers the ship, or is it true they are all mercenaries and don’t care who owns the team?

Maybe all the players will be politically correct and stuff. You know, a short laugh and then a diplomatic waif of an answer. Geez, we’re becoming so beholden, you know, where being honest is replaced by self interest.

Nothing starts problems faster than the truth.

If were him, I would have played somewhere else. It’s disconcerting when an owner knows nothing about the business. The conglomeration of professional football into the sports ‘sector’, like what happened with ‘media’ and countless other industries, means that richer and richer people who know less and less about the business at hand are able to bully (oh, I mean buy) their way in.

Manchester United has gone from being wealthy to being in debt. It’s the most astonishing, illogical reversal, yet, thru complicity, the takeover happened. And honestly, the response from the fans, the heart and soul of the team, is but a murmur. I am not a supporter, but I’m even louder!

Whether Park is a mercenary or not, his play from central midfield is polished and outstanding; he’s certainly ready for this level.

Too bad Manchester United now stinks.

I am a devoted Chelsea supporter. to say I do not like Man U (Manure) is an understatement. As an american businessman I am also familiar with Malcolm Fraser and his approach to monetary mattters. He will take Man U out of the cottage industry stage (run by fans/press/arrogant manager) and turn it into a very profitable television monster. I hope he fails to do so but that is wishful thinking. Do not be suprised if he decides to raise all season ticket prices way beyond their current give-away level simply to get rid of those stupid fans who think they have any voice in running the club.
