While Orr is out teaching tomorrow’s future football stars the proper way to play keeper–and brainwash them to be AC Milan supporters—thought I’d pass along this tid bit on a slow afternoon. If this comes to fruition, we might be seeing pre-season friendlies in Boston featuring Liverpool and the Giallorossi. Make sure to heckle accordingly.
One of the investors in the group that bought Statler and Waldorf out of Liverpool FC might have his eye on the Penisola Appenninica and in particular the capital club AS Roma. Of course, sources appear to be from Italian media—which are as reliable as a Grauniad exclusive—and include investment by a Florida real estate developer.
The chances of this happening are already destroyed just by those two facts.
Then again, there might be something to it, as Roma’s owner—Rosella Sensi—had Unicredit’s head honchos at a meeting in New York to hammer out a deal with the investors from Beantown, so perhaps there’s some merit to this.
So, if this deal goes down, it’s becomes rather confusing—which one was supposed to be the evil empire again? And what are the policies on allowing flares in Fenway Park?
