there's something about ..... takeover

Soccer Talk.

My beloved Liverpool has been bought over by American pair of Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
see link

It's sad to see a historic team in English Premier League in the hands of the Americans, or for that matter, in the hands of non-british.

Granted. Manchester United and Aston Villa are also in the hands of American, but surely non as historical as Liverpool. Currently, I think only Arsenal is English.

Americans has a way with Sports. They are marketing genious and they are sports fanatics, except in the area of soccer. And not to mention, they are pro-american.

Immediately after Manchester United was bought over by an American, they have a new shirt sponsor. Out go "Vondaphone", a european brand. In come "AIG", a american brand.

Is the same fate going to happen to Liverpool?

Carlsberg has been the shirt sponsors for many years. And also a European brand, I believe.

Saying that, I think it's just a matter of time, before the brand goes to a American Company.

It's only natural. If Singapore is to buy over Liverpool, we will either put Creative or Singapore Airlines or Sheng Shiong Supermarket on it.

If Thaksin were successful last year, you bet, Shin corp or Singah Beer would be the sponsor.

And now... we know the next brand would be American.
