    Hello Ian,
    Nice blog and interesting content!

    My take on this topic is very simple. Football clubs owners invest in a club because they do know that they will have their ROI (return on investment) sooner rather than later.

I am not saying that it’s all benefits, and Porstmouth situation is a crude example.
