Dear RA, Need some cash flow for my football team

i am a Manchester City fan
it is a football club located in England
In order to more competitive the team probably needs about
£200Million pounds. If you could help that would be great.
Ned Stanley Jr, II

Well Ned. Letters like this fascinate me in their brevity and directness. I forwarded this to my friend the doctor in U.A.E.
He seemed pretty excited in his initial read - so we'll see how that goes. Till then, best of luck this season...

p.s. I really do enjoy City's colors.
