The same fans who want Bates spend money and go into debt to watch Premiership football are probably the same ones cheering Ridsdale & co. Look what happened then. Being backed by Russians, Saudis or Indians is fine if you are prepared to be just bit parts in some millionaire/ billionaire's fantasy league/ hobby. I don't envy Man. City or Chelsea fans at all. At least at Leeds there are still some players/ management who care about the club and have some history with it. Dont think you can say that about the premiership - with maybe a few exceptions.

Hank Steinbrenner failed in his "bid" for Spurs last summer. There was a report at the time.The report cites Hank Steinbrenner's interest in owning a soccer team directly.

"The only [other kind of franchise that would interest me] would be a major soccer team in Europe, preferably in the Premier League, " said the elder Steinbrenner. "That's always a possibility for me."
