Eggy Backs American Football
Talking to Sky Sports News Eggert Magnusson says that playing a competitive Premier League game in the USA would be 'good for the game'. The NFL plays the first regular season game away from North America (presumably that is why there is a game of crap football at Wembley this Sunday). Arsenal's American shareholder Stan Kroenkeagreed agreed, saying,
"I think there is a reasonable chance it could take place in the future."
I can't see this decision being very popular with season ticket holders. I have no problem with pre-season friendlies being held in America but what possible benefit could come from playing a competitive game there? The only outcome would be to alienate the fans of the clubs involved.
