Modern day soccer

Website Review   by:Micheal

Sport, soccer in particular, is it still a game or now a multi-million pound industry dictated by the mega rich? Take the English prmiership for instance, almost American football like now in the busisness sense of the word, in the last two to three years major moves have been made within the major clubs in England ranging from minute speculation of takeovers to fullscale takeovers of entire clubs such as Chelsea and their new Russian owner Roman Abramovic, this man was and is still seen as good as he alone with a personal fortune of billions dragged Chelsea from financial ruin to lead them to a major European super power. On the other hand in the case of Manchester United, arguably one of the biggest and most popular clubs in the world, a take- over involving the American Tycoon Malcolm Glazer caused widespread anguish and disgruntlement for many concerning the club none more so than the fans, this man was seen as a man there just to make a personal profit, a man obiviously not in touch with soccer let alone Manchester United but in all honesty can we blame the man for making such a bold move? in my opinion..No, for soccer is no longer JUST a game but now a lucrative busisness. Sooner or later this will be the trend with sports clubs all over the world, not just with American football and now the English Premiership. In the long term this may or maynot benefit sport but we cannot hide from the fact that this is now a growing trend. In my opinion i believe the game and entertainment of soccer will not diminish and multi-million pound take-overs will only benefit and sucessfully improve the game as a whole especially for the fans who are the corner stone to any great club.
