Niagara Gazette — American businessmen and corporations have certainly taken notice. Man U is owned by the Glazer family, better known in the U.S. as the owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They join the Lerner family, John Henry, Randy Lerner, Stan Kroenke, Ellis Short and — surprise! — LeBron James as Americans who own or co-own a Premier League club (For the curious, James is a partial owner of Liverpool FC).
Then there’s NBC Sports Network, which spent $250 million to retain exclusive U.S. broadcast rights to the Premier League for the next three seasons.
Which brings us back to Moyes. As the Premier League gains popularity on this side of “the pond,” the magnifying glass has only become bigger for Man U’s new manager. As the bright light of worldwide media and public attention shines down through that glass on Moyes, it’s going to get awfully hot underneath.
