Dear Captain Codpiece,

How prescient of you to recognise that Manchester United shirt sponsor, the great American insurance company AIG, could not be allowed to fail. Clearly the knock on effect on that most important of world institutions, the English Premier League, would have been disastrous and the impact on world football* would have been immeasurable.

I would like to point out to you that, as important as the Premiership is, it is built on the foundation of the lower divisions, notably the English Championship. Ergo I am sure that you understand that should Crystal Palace's shirt sponsor, the renowned GAC Logistics, should ever find themselves in financial difficulty you will certainly do the right thing and step in to prevent the dominoes from toppling and possibly destroying the world economy.

Yours in football,

Yank in London
