    There were a lot of rumours when CFG first signed a sponsorship with Korean company Nexen Tire that a K-League team would be bought soon. Hasn't happened so far. I'll wait before getting too invested in this idea.

    http://footballchannel.asia/2015/02/17/post2208/ for background.

    So CFG is in...
    - England
    - USA
    - Australia
    - Japan
    - Spain
    - Uruguay
    - Korean (Academy)

    What are the most probably countries for them to enter next? Africa? Another European country?

    The reported purchase of Girona is still yet to turn into anything more than a rumour, so unless you're counting what presently is no more than a gentlemen's agreement then you need to scratch off Spain from that list. Of course, if you are including gentlemen's agreements then you need to add the Netherlands, because there's a very similar arrangement with NAC Breda right now (minus the talk of buyouts).

    Also, the next countries are likely to be China and India, or they are where all the talk has been revolving around for the last 12 months or so.

    Haha. Yeah...

    To be honest, most likely the next time I change the avatar it will be to remove the badges altogether and use a completely different type of picture. Will need to work out exactly what I would want to replace it with before I can do that, though.

    That's disappointing. Was hoping for 17 slices.

    100% CFG will buy a team in China or India considering they are probably the two fastest growing football leagues that are also untapped by CFG is there any news on who there considering buying or is it just wait and see.

    Also considering that they sold a 13% stake in their company to a investment group owned by the Chinese government, and with the Chinese President having visited the training ground in Manchester to sign an agreement with David Cameron for UK investment into Chinese football...
