Fenway Sports Group owns Liverpool, they are a group of Wall Street investors lead by Tom Werner, Les Otten, The NY Times Companies and like a dozen millionaires. They also own the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park and Anfield.

As you said, not as bad as oil rich royal families or Russian crooks, but just think about the few English Clubs still faithful to their roots, their fans, their city, their tradition and identity; for a century they were proud to put up a fight against the larger clubs for bigger cities with more resources, now those bigger clubs (like Liverpool) are bought by foreign millionaires that had ZERO connection to the clubs and made them 10 times richer and they raid the talent of every single club not belonging to the elite. At this point, it does not matter if the foreign owners own oil field, prostitutes or slaves.

Just rewind back in time and you will see British clubs that were not only successful domestically but also in Europe and now they fight to stay afloat in lower divisions.

This could an alternative to a transfer fee cap: Let's say there is a $100M cap, if a team decides to buy the next Messi for $400M the league will not stop the transaction, but for every 10M above the cap there is % that goes to the League for redistribution to the smaller clubs.


just want to add my two cents about the MLB luxury tax. While the biggest teams will still spend the most in transfer fees and salaries, what you see is a drastic reduction in the number of big contracts they can add - instead of a full lineup of all-stars, you'll see maybe a handful, and the rest are bit players. The biggest impact will be obviously against teams like Bayern - with such a system, it's very likely you'd see a lot more youth products or mid-tier players in the lineup. Titles would start to come less often. You can see this with the baseball equivalent of Bayern, the NY Yankees. Plus, in the end such a system rather adds to the owners or organizations pockets, and less to the players themselves.

Pool thought that they won it the moment they scored the penalty.

Another penalty for Liverpool ...
So lucky to have Rodrigo (record singing) to make that idiotic tackle.

Shame

Maybe we can interest Chelsea to spend some absurd money for Thiago? All these attackers are useless if they can't even get the ball. Brigthon is dominating them and only a matter of time for them to score.

Welp. Unlucky for BRI they are playing well but individual quality and luck is on Chelsea's side. Team play though, Chelsea has a long way to go. Introduction of Barkley in midfield did improve them though.

Really really lucky indeed. Imo even the penalty was dubious

The Penalty was as clear as it can get. Of the two German additions Havertz looked flat and slow, Werner incisive and dangerous throughout the whole game he was probably the best player on the pitch, the opponent struggled with his pace all game. The 3rd Chelsea goal had some luck factor but the other two well deserved. Brighton's goal was another brain fart from Kepa, the ball went under his arm but they created enough chances to deserve one or two. Kante seems to be out of shape at the moment, so he and Jorginho gave the midfield to Brighton. Lampard has a lot of work to do but the direct one touch football is fun to watch when they go on offense.
