Sorry if others have already mentioned this before
I was having a discussion with Mrs SoL this morning as they were discussing the CL final in the radio.
She asked me if I was supporting City, and I said of course not, Inter all the way. She then said "But they're the English team." I replied that of course their not English anymore, they've been bought out by Abu Dhabi.
Which got me thinking that this season by finishing above Spurs and Brentford we are the highest placed English owned side in the Premier League.
Making us the best English club in the world 🌎

All possibly true but not quite the point.
If Nissan make cars in Sunderland, they are still Japanese cars.
By the same token, Minis made in Oxford are now German cars, because they are owned by BMW
Ergo, Chelsea, Man U, Liverpool etc are now American clubs playing in the English Premier League.
Brighton were the leading English club, playing in the English premier League.

Leeds United were a Italian club now they’re American, oh and they are still ****s

If I move to Spain it doesn’t make me Spanish
If I buy a Spanish home in England it doesn't make English.

Something like that.

Deepest, darkest Sussex
If you can keep your head when all around are losing theirs, you'll be a foot taller than all of them when they've finished

If a dog is born in a stable doesn’t mean it’s a horse

Well that would have be quite awkward as Jesus would have been a horse
