So then I assume Dubai rulers have paid their debts to all the people owed money. I mean if they got money to buy a Spanish premiership side...

Although not on the same scale, there were a couple of teams who went through names changes to align with their sponsor - one in League of Wales became known as TNS Total Network Solutions FC or something, and I'm sure a Conference team then were known as Vauxhall Motors United or something.

Exact details escapes me, but it's not a new concept.

One of Jeff Stelling's quips when they won a European game against the odds:-

'They'll be dancing in the streets of Total Network Solutions tonight'
