…Of Sell Outs!
Everywhere you turn there is talk of crisis, wolves at doors and loan deals rather than mega buck transfers. First Portsmouth bought it, Liverpool are days away from a points deduction and Manchester United now join the fray, whether these choose to acknowledge it or not.
Very few Premiership clubs are living within their means, even those who have evaded the evil clutches of a foreign backer.
