The Guardian‘s resident anti-capitalist curmudgeon David Conn writes today that “no one seems to question why an increasing number of rich American businessmen are buying up England’s leading clubs.” It’s a fair question considering 30% of the Premier League teams are owned by Americans. But his comments have a tinge of anti-Americanism. After all, 60% of all Premier League clubs are owned by foreigners, so why pick on the Americans?
