Bloody Americans, eh! Firstly the Glazers launched an aggressive takeover of Manchester United, leaving them millions of pounds in debt; then Hicks and Gillett did the same at Liverpool. The two biggest clubs in the Premier League face imminent financial meltdown and both ownerships have been vocally opposed by fans of each team. Incredibly, it's not totally unthinkable that these two institutions could go the way of Portsmouth. Thanks, Uncle Sam.
