There are quite a few interesting stories in today’s newspapers. Setanta is to sell NASN, their TV network which specializes in American Sports. ESPN is named as a possible interested party. Setanta plans on reinvesting the money from the proposed sale back into its business.
Man United, meanwhile, has placed posters in Liverpool’s away end for today’s match to encourage goodwill between Liverpool and Man U supporters, and to hope that Liverpool fans won’t damage Old Trafford like they did last time the two teams met.
And Florida businessman Robert Earl has acquired a large stake in Everton FC after one of the shareholders sold his 23% stake. This is encouraging news for Everton as it’ll hopefully help their chances of building a new stadium outside of Liverpool to replace Goodison Park.
