true but how much of them real rich men go really want to buy a club? Look at how much rich people in de USA, and how much of those MLS clubs owned by an individual? mot many, actually most mls clubs owned by companys. so, I think, my opinion, Lara and yorke, and some of they rich friends for the financial backing, have the best chance, if intrested to own a profesional football club in UK.

Yuh right.....more than likely whoever want to buy would be a sports fan, and particularly a football fan, at heart.

But like any other business.....yuh want to make money.  Not sure what the ROI on a football club would be compared to other industries.  Of course, some men so rich it go jes be a hobby and ego ting.  De ROI is a secondary factor.  Ah suspeck a man like Abramovic is somebody so.

Like allyuh forget Jack Warner. I sure he could buy Chelsea with all that money he make on T&T football, sponsors, UNC and all the bribe money from FIFA. I sure that Switzerland account pfat by now.

With Jack and FIFA money backing him, anything's possible.

Duprey have money to. He suck all from BWIA. I remember he wanted to make Jabloteh an MLS team and was blanked 2 years back. He wanted to be based in Miami.

Can't use MLS as a gauge...MLS itself restricts club ownership and only just began to liberalize ownership by individuals.

Hobby my foot...dem men see ownership in the Premiership, pure and simple...see the American ownership in ManU (by Glazer) and Villa (by Lerner).  Abramovich I suspect is a true fan who came upon loads of play money.

If a Trini rich man can buy an EPL team, then he could afford to buy the TT proleague and assist TT football.
