This summer, West Ham sold to an Icelandic Bank…. Portsmouth looks set to be bought by Sulaiman al-Fahim… Newcastle United is for sale – price £100,000,000. You can bid on eBay, but the page is quite busy, so if you’re interested send an email to Newcastle United firstname.lastname@example.org
But here’s the bigger question – what’s a soccer club worth? Many don’t make a profit, and have huge overheads – mainly player wages. Football clubs would be worth more if they could make themselves more profitable – and cutting costs is a quicker way to get there than finding new ways to make money.
Can you see Rooney or Kaka doing the same as Jenson Button, and halving their wages to help a club in trouble?
There’s a thread kicking off in the Forums – tell us what you think your club is worth!
