The only argument I can see for government involvement is that this is something so culturally significant, so opposed by the entire population and so glaringly wrong as things go, to deem it their jurisdiction. I dont know enough about government to really say and I know that we are a liberal country and dont get involved in business, but that is always the argument, is this a business or ‘the people’s game’... it was robbery and unprecedented.

A better example is owning a listed building as a private individual. Yes you can make some modifications, but there are guidelines over what you can and can’t do.

One could argue that football clubs are intangible heritage assets to the UK and similar guidelines could be put in place.
