I'll admit it. We've used our size & status more than once to bully smaller clubs into handing over prize players.

*COUGH* Tevez *COUGH* Considering that we always overpay, I made an assumption. That we're rich. Obscenely so.

Well apparently not so.


According to the Top 10 of the richest club owners in England we're aren't exactly rolling in dough.

In fact we're precisely 10th on the list. Or should I say the Glazer's are 10th on that list.

The Top of the list is no surprise. Man City's Sheik tops the lot. Followed by QPR's cashed up owners.

Then comes Chelski. Wow, third. Credit crunch is making their Russian sugar daddy cry.


Before I show you the lists, something else of interest. I had another assumption about our dear club.

I would've thought the Ronaldo would be our/the Premiership's top earner. As it happens he's 11th.

Both Rio & Rooney earn more than him, wages & other deals, a total figure. Strange that.

No offence to Rooney but he has a face made for Radio. Ronaldo has always been the marketer's dream.

So I'm a little surprised. Oh well, here are the list's in full. First owners, then players.


1 Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nayan - Manchester City - £15bn
2 Lakshmi Mittal and family - QPR - £12.5bn

We know where not the richest or one of the richest,the difference is we have the power of 'borrowing big cash'.I never use money in football arguments its pathetic.
