This week Wolverhampton Wanderers announced a deal to show their matches on pay-to-view television in China. Is this a good idea? Well, Wolves new Chinese owner Jeff Shi must think so. Do I think it is a good idea? Well, I know many Chinese students at the University of Wolverhampton quickly become Wolves fans when they come to Wolverhampton, their halls of residence, Randall Lines, is close to the Molineux stadium. We have to start building bridges with China and with other nations. We can’t become isolationist.
I answered my phone this morning. This is unusual for me, I usually leave the calls to go to my answering machine, because of nuisance calls that could be dealt with easily; but aren’t, because they make money for the telecom companies. It was from TalkTalk.
