The government is to unveil radical proposals that would give football fans first option to buy their clubs when they were put up for sale and require clubs to hand over a stake of up to 25% to supporters\’ groups.
This is, quite simply, theft.
Liverpool, Arsenal, Man U, they\’re worth around the £400 million mark each aren\’t they? So the net effect of this is a forced transfer of some £100 million from those who currently have it to those who do not.
And yes, forced transfers of this kind can indeed be called theft, the law be damned.
