    yeah. it’s true. we americans have no idea how to conduct business. also liverpool can never be successful with american ownership. also it must be totally and completely hicks’ and gillette’s fault that liverpool have over overspent. i’m sure the waiter was never asking for transfer funds. why would he do that? he’s not american, surely he knows the consequences of such a bad business policy.

    the manager can’t overspend, he spends only as much as the and owners and board will give him. this works out perfectly well as long as the owners didn’t buy the club with 350 million of someone else’s money and fail to pay it back. the club itself makes a profit, the company that owns it is in hock up to it’s eye balls.

    much like america is to the chinese…
