Prospect of Labour Government sinks Football
However, somewhat aligned to this is the Deloitte Annual Football money survey which was released today. Real Madrid come top and Barclenon second, the days of Man U. being top have been over for 5 years now.(how long ago was the last election?) Although the big English clubs dominate the top ten of the table, they are no longer top of the tree and it shows on the pitch in that the really world class players like Ronaldo leave the Premier League for Spain. None of the top 3 players in the world plays in the Premier League.
In sterling terms though, the clubs have been powering ahead generating more income. In fact if the Pound was more like .80 to the Euro than .90 then the UK clubs would still be top.
A weak Government has given us a weak currency and bequeathed a weakened premier leauge. Labour, they can even ruin your football!
