So I'm a Club Chairman...

I asked around if there are any amateur clubs on sale here in Peru and my friend from Ayacucho just gave me his club. Well, co directing it anyways as he's stepping back somewhat.

I'm hoping this goes down well xD

How many guinea pigs did that cost you?

He literally gave it to me free. It was a confidence thing as I supported his work for ages to come. I got lucky. I'm only co-owning it though.

That’s probably like me owning Finsbury Park Harriers. :ph34r:

That has made me all nostalgic for the Renford Rejects. What a show that was.

So what's next for you Brian? Are you looking to earn a professional contract? Use your media contacts to attract Nolberto Solano? Run for president?

Just to give Brian a heads up, this is what Cannabis looks like now years after his glory days at Everton

Why go all the way over there when you have already cemented your place as an English buffoon over here???

All of the high strength cocaine that will be available in Peru and Brian is spending his time putting the cones out on a Sunday morning. 

Priorities, mate.

I bet you'd love a Peruse of the gear over there. 

What a great pun that was. Like, really good. You better Belize it.

Here in Peru, you can gain easy promotion to the top flight if you just put some money. Sport Huancayo won promotion to the top division in their second year of foundation. Same with Real Garcilaso.

So, you’ve got money then? That’s the plan?

I don't, I'm just answering your question. Peru is one of the most appealing places to start a football club if you have money. That or the MLS. 

Think Beckham who wants to start a franchise in Miami. Do you really think he wants to start in the 9th tier of England? Much better to go abroad and start elsewhere.

There is a difference between starting a football club and buying one.

If you want to start one and be successful, Peru and the USA are the 2 best places. If you want to buy one, you won't look at South America, never mind Peru. Can you imagine Abramovic spunking in money to a team in Huancayo? xD

The Peruvian league is not a pro league, more like an amateur league. "Best place to invest besides the MLS" no wonder, atletico Madrid invested in a Peruvian team and not a second tier Mexican team.

A complete lie that its one of the best leagues to invest!!! La U fans and the Peruvian were practically begging Jorge vergara to buy La U, a team that is in debt, 10 TIMES what its worth! Vergara instead invested on a team from China.

You could have an opinion all you like, but no matter what you think, our league is full time with players on profesional contracts. The standard is shit, but the contracts being profesional is a fact.

Also correct me if I'm wrong but Atlético San Luis were not a club started by Atlético? You missed my point completely.

Anyways, India are another great place to start a football club.

No way is a Peru a good place to start a football team. It would cost money, but I don't think there is any money if you are successful. It's a losing venture.

There is money to be made in the MLS. It's growing, there are international competitions which MLS teams already make it to the finals in, and there a load of prospects international that would rather live here, than in Mexico, Paraguay, or most other Latin American countries. Not to mention the television contracts the MLS has in place are a lot more money than the Peruvian league gets.

If the only goal was success, than why not go to a country like Hungary, that is rich with history, poor domestically at the moment, and has potential to really progress in the CL/EL if a team is given the right investment?
