Manchester United

I have something of an antipathy to soccer, and so the stories of outraged Manchester United fans protesting at the takeover by Malcolm Glazer brought a nice glowing feeling to my stomach.

However, as I have read, the English aren't necessarily opposed to foreign owners. Ramon Abromovich seems to have won the hearts of Chelsea fans - if only because at matches he looks the role of a fan (a cousin of mine is a Chelsea supporter, so I have found myself on occasion watching - well mostly ignoring - a soccer match from time to time on the telly).

Personally though I think in 3-4 years time people will be asknig what all the fuss was about.
