I'm celebrating Earth Day today by typing in green. Speaking of green, Forbes recently published their annual valuations of soccer teams and players. Manchester United tops the list of teams with an estimated value of $1.86 billion. No wonder the Glazer family refuses to sell this team. Real Madrid came in second at $1.4 billion. Maybe they can use some of that money to replace the Copa del Rey trophy that was run over by their bus. The top earning player is David Beckham earning an estimated $40 million annually. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were next.
Let's move on to the Premiership which will be celebrating Easter by playing soccer. Here are my predictions for the weekend.
Manchester United 2 Everton 0
Aston Villa 2 Stoke City 1
Blackpool 2 Newcastle United 2
Liverpool 2 Birmingham City 1
Sunderland 1 Wigan Athletic 1
Tottenham Hotspur 2 West Bromwich Albion 1
Wolverhampton Wanderers 1 Fulham 1
Chelsea 2 West Ham United 0
Bolton Wanderers 1 Arsenal 2
Blackburn Rovers 1 Manchester City 1
Happy Earth Day and Happy Easter to all!
