When I was a child in the 80′s I liked football. I was excited to watch Liverpool on TV – and top matches were also not something you could get on tap like you can now, so you appreciated it more.
What I dislike the most about top football today is that you are watching multi-national companies, or at least, clubs with the power of a multi-national brand.
In the early to mid 90′s, Rupert Murdoch’s Sky acquired the rights to broadcast the Premier League. I’m sure he had a great business plan, and executed it brilliantly – but the result of what happened then has bit by bit taken the heart and soul out of British football.
