I think the way that the Echo and other local media strive to give them some level of parity in their coverage with us probably doesn't help matters since it gives them a very distorted view of their level of importance, which is practically zero outside of the local area.
When I still bought the hardcopy Echo I was amazed how much coverage they gave to Everton, considering their fanbase is just a quarter of the city region and they've not won anything since the last century. I don't really notice now due to only using the app.

Mind you, they never stopped whinging, whining and complaining, so I suppose the Echo felt compelled to pander to the highly vocal minority.

I often wonder if the local press in Barcelona and Lisbon have to pander in a similar way to Espanyol and Sporting fans?
Ten Hag is loving this. Basically removes a massive problem and he doesn't have to bear the brunt of criticism from some fan quarters and the ex-player SKY horde (Neville, Keane, etc.).

As Kuper said, their scouting network seems laughable, but it's not really out of the ordinary - look at Chelsea under Conte and Sarri.

Surely it would be the opposite? A Man UTd coach will be under pressure to deliver regardless, but now heíll also have the fact that every single signing heís making is his choice, and his alone, no one to fall back on there in the blame game if they donít all succeed. Weíve seen here how that goes with managers, the criticism aimed at them (Rodgers being prime example), when failed or average transfers where used as a stick to beat him with.

They will never do that. Never.

Augusta and LIVís backers have a lot in common. Place of women for example.

You do realize Augusta National has had Women members for years now. Including Condoleezza Rice.

Has set up an Augusta National Womens Amateur to grow the Womens game world wide. Which is quickly becoming one of the top Womens golf event.

But yeah, them and the Saudi's/Liv are the same.  ::)
