Manchester United: the fucking of a famous football club
#5
I'm a supporter of Tottenham Hotspur FC, the famous Spurs.

When one of our most successful managers, Keith Burkinshaw, resigned from the club in 1984, he said notoriously: "there used to be a football club there".

Huge wages (over £100k per week is commonplace), ridiculous agent fees (10% of transfer fees), multi-billion TV rights deals: top flight football clubs have huge revenue turnover and shoddy ethics.

Many English Premier League clubs are now owned by "international businessmen", including speculators who have cheated their own people and live in exile - tax and otherwise.

Companies which turn over tens or hundreds of millions of pounds can be highly useful.

Especially if that money can be, ahem, churned through tax havens.

There used to be footbal clubs over there....
