It’s The Economy, Stupid

Money makes the world go ‘round. As much as we try to pretend that it isn’t so, sometimes we’re reminded of it. (Actually I’m reminded of it everyday when I open my dusty wallet only to find a lonely fiver inside.) At least today’s news isn’t about expensive cars or gold tiled swimming pools, we’re actually going to discuss serious economic stuff. I’m sorry, I wish there was exciting news about strippers and cocaine fueled sex orgies. But there is a name-calling battle between billionaires.

It seems that the downtrodden economy isn’t bad for everyone. Tottenham have revealed that they will save £40m on their new stadium due to the drop in the price of steel and concrete. Just think of the players they can buy, then sell and then buy back with that kind of money.

While Spurs are ready to build a new stadium, Bayern München might be looking for a new roommate. I can just see the ad on Craigslist: Massive European football club located in Bavaria seeks smaller club with little or no recent success to share expenses and live in our shadow.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s hunt for a new shirt sponsor continues. Current sponsor AIG will see out their contract—which runs until the end of next season. One small problem, AIG is changing their name, but next season’s shirts have already been produced. It looks like we have another Sony Dreamcast situation on our hands.

Could George Gillett days be numbered at Liverpool? It’s been reported that Tom Hicks is selling some of his stake in the Texas Rangers so that he’ll have the funds to buy out Gillett. Keep the faith Red fans, you’re getting closer to some semblance of stability.

Gillett and Hicks might not get along, but Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has absolutely no love for Newcastle owner Mike Ashley. Unless I misunderstood the phrase, “He has no class.”

But there is good news on the boardroom front. Elton John has returned to Watford as honorary life president. Make your own Elton John joke. I know you have a couple of good ones.
