Think back.  Back to before the A-league started.  What were the key messages about the new league.

1 – The new league would be run in a business like manner by business people.  Community based clubs with ties / history connected to 1 ethnic group could not run themselves professionally nor represent the whole of a city.

2 – The games would be held at the best available stadia.

It is point 1 I am interested in this morning … the move to secure foreign funding of clubs.  When the league was starting, with all that optimism and what not, there was no discussion of foreign investment.  But now it is very much part of the environment.  What does it mean?  Aussie money is now unwilling to invest/lose money on soccer?

What happens if the foreign investment stops flowing?
