I heard about www.Myfootballclub.co.uk ages ago and signed up immediately, the idea of many fans paying 35 UKP a year to join together and to buy an actual football club was too good an opportunity to miss.
Well we've just got to 53,000 members and we ahve bought a majority holding of club in the 5th league in England Ebbsfleet United. The members will vote on player selection, formation, and all matters to do with the club.
If a player is old or the club makes a profit, then we do not profit from that as all money is re-invested back into the club - so no cashing in if we get an Micheal Owen or a Micha Richards as if we sell we do not profit only the club does.
What a fantastic idea, I do hope the die hard Ebbsfleet United fans are not too scared (I would be if we had bought Stoke)
Now a certain RSS feed will have an extra bite to it soon, my vote on who should play on Saturday, and in which formation.
Of course it has a full social networking site with forums, friends, profiles, feeds, voting - it i'll help very nicely with my research into these things, and this one is for real (a cool 2 million pound in the bank, a real club paying real wages, playing real matches) talk about Facebook that matters.
So When Saturday Comes is now doubly exciting
