EPL's Derby sold American

The bottom feeders of this season's Premier League are under American ownership as Derby County chairman Adam Pearson has managed to find new investors for the club.

Although the new faces are, at this point, unnamed, the article does mention that "the group were previously involved in talks with a takeover of Manchester City, only to lose out to Thaksin Shinawatra."

So will this in some way help keep Derby up this season? Unless the new owners include a magically fairy, probably not. However, it should help provide manager Paul Jewell the needed funds for the summer transfer window, but will it finally help American Benny Feilhaber see some decent playing time?

This move means four of the twenty teams currently in the EPL are owned by Americans (Manchester United, Liverpool and Aston Villa are the others). If only we could convince these people to throw some of that money into MLS.

As a Derby County fan for 30-something years (born and raised in the city, now living in Arizona), I hope this means a return to the glory days when our club was winning the old First Division and playing in Europe.

The Rams are the Green Bay Packers of English football. Derby is a small and friendly city (just over 200,000), with incredibly loyal and polite fans (well over 20,000 a game even in the Championship; 30,000 minimum during the Premiership).

To anyone in the US who follows English football, I urge you to check out this little team that could... and now can!

"If only we could convince these people to throw some of that money into MLS." Or USL-1. Or US soccer in any way shape or form.

To be honest the money that we are getting is great but it is not a patch on the money that the top teams like Arsenal, Chelsea and Man U get/have. At best we'll be a mediocre mid table Prem team and maybe a good cup run (i'll take it though) in a couple of years..... at worst it'll be the death of us.

It must be difficult to see the $$$$ go overseas but sport in England is a business now (as it always has been in the USA).

Keep watching the Ram's (as Derby county are known)though....fingers crossed this is the start of something amazing, who knows!
