I was just skimming through the paper when I came across this article and I was like shocked! How can such an elite football club be sold out and to add salt to injury to a family of terrorists. It's totally outrageous and I feel pity for the fans of such a great English Club. The Laden Family who own a Saudi Arabian building firm has offered 300 million pounds to the Premier League Club's owner Mike Ashley to get hold of the English Club. The pride of such a wonderful club, who has seen the likes of Sir Bobby Thompson and Alan Shearer to name a few, will be shattered by the link up with a terrorists' family. The fact that Osama Bin Laden has been disowned by his family much before the 9/11 incident, would only be a consolation, which no fan would be able to digest. What's your take on it? Should it/Can it happen?

The Bin-Laden family apart from Osama have a great track record, they used to sponsor Williams in F1 about a decade back. I don't think they should be judged on the outcast that is Osama! Besides they can't be as bad as Fat Freddy was!

Hey, thanks for that update. Even though I am an avid F1 fan I didn't know that. It's totally upon the people how do they welcome this outcome.
