Hicks buying up Liverpool Soccer Club

Hicks and Gillett (owner of the Montreal Canadiens, not the razors) are buying up Liverpool Soccer Club. Hicks is putting up 250MM of the 450MM price tag.

The interesting thing was in the article they said the the revenues of the upper echelon clubs in the British Premiership league (like United, Aresenal, Liverpool) rival that of the NFL franchises.

Depends on what he does with the team.

Malcom Glazer (Tampa Bay Bucs) owns Manchester United. Most the rest of the world that supports MU didn't mind it much but the locals have been much different. They were pissed because the takeover saddled the team with alot of debt. Some of them formed FC United which isn't in the premier league so they could still hang out at soccer games and not see MU.
