First it was Manchester City bought by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed.

Then Sulaiman Al Fahim bought Portsmouth.

And Now Shaikh Ahmad bin Saqr buys an unnamed English Club.

Liverpool was a target for Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid once but it did not go through.

Is the English Premier League Turning into The Emarati Premier League?

Can't stand football, bunch of overpaid wooses and any game that is played for 90 minutes and the score is in the very low single figures is plain boring. So better foreigners waste their money than the Brits.

**** sake, this **** ****es me off. Sure it's all business and what not. We're witnessing the end of real English football, I'm glad I watched the last of it as I was growing up.

Rubbish. People with any intelligence watch a game because it interests them, because of the skill of the participants, not the high nature of scores. If a touchdown was worth 2 points, and a goal 1 point, would American football be any different? That right there is what I call a typical American argument

One problem, he isn't American. He's British. So your argument just makes you look like an ass instead of witty for being able to make fun of ignorant Americans.

Pwnd! :rofl:

And besides, if fans did actually have any intelligence, there would be far less hooliganism.

I don't see what the big deal here is. Rich people get to buy sports clubs... This unnecessary patriotism is garbage.

What a load of utter rubbish.

Newcastle seems to be the team acquired by Sheikh Ahmad bin Saqr.

I doubt that. Newcastle is not a "a leading English club of premier league".

Football hooliganism is actually more common in Europe now, the hooligan scene in the UK is dwindling pretty seriously

Edit: Also, I made an error but my point still stands having high scores isn't the only thing that makes a game interesting

That explains why you wasted your time clicking on a thread about football and taking further time to post a comment about football.

As far as I know the title is UAE strikes again and has nothing to do with football. Even I think football is a bit monotonous but if someone else finds it interesting, good for them. Not everyone has to find everything interesting.

It has 'English Football Club' as a sub-title.
