It works at Man City because there is no salary cap. They can pay ridiculous money on players salaries. They are paying DeBruyne £280k a week as an example, $541k a week in NZ money. that's probably after tax as well

It's ruined the game, clubs can't compete
DeBruyne is worth it though.

You are right about the salary cap aspect. Would be nice to have owners who invest more in the club though.

The funny thing is, if fale had just said him and his mates had always wanted to own a footy club, they would probably own one already.
That assumes he had money and substance behind his 'bid' which he clearly didn't.

Given the current “uproar” with the new American owners of the Breakers - inappropriate sponsor, bad game day experience etc. - I think we escaped a bullet when Fale lost out to the current owners!

We definitely dodged a bullet. The consortium may have been alright. The main problem was their spokesperson and the guy who was going to take a position here if they were successful.

He went off enough in the media during the bidding process. Imagine if things didn't go his way if they were successful.

I’m not even sure there was a consortium, not one with enough money and experience anyhow. The bloke has no obvious business experience and the PR skills of a jibbering idiot. He would have brought the club and the game into complete disrepute imho.

Abraham Lincoln said "you can fool some of the people all the time, and all the people some of the time...but you cannot fool all the people all of the time". Richard Fale proved that to be true bit it scared me shitless to see how close he got to proving Abraham Lincoln wrong.:eek::eek:
