Investment Banks as Premier League Soccer Teams

To get some entertainment, thought I would start a thread regarding Investment Banks as Premier League teams. Yes thats soccer you American fucks.

Go ahead and include EBs, BBs, MMs all the way to lower tier and for you regional thirsters dying for an investment job go ahead and include your bank. Wigan did win the FA cup a few years ago.

as I don't have experience in banking it would be fruitless to try to relate teams with banks so thought I'd let other people do it

BB (+RBC) to Premier League: - GS/MS = Manchester United/Arsenal/Liverpool, legacy legacy legacy - JPM/BAML = Manchester City/Chelsea, balance sheet driven - RBC = Leicester City, strong fan base that is punching above its weight

Arsenal/Rothschild: They are very well known and have an aura of class about them. But these days you will mainly find them in the mid table/market.

Moelis/Stoke: Lack quality up front, but are very good at restructuring their defence. They work their players the hardest and you wouldn't want to be face them on a cold Tuesday night.

Centerview partners/ Chelsea: Pay their players the highest salaries in the league and would rather their players to run down their contracts than be sold. Used to have a British core, but nowadays their squad is mainly made of highly rated europeans.

Greenhill/Manchester united: Were good back in the day, but nowadays they rely heavily on their legacy players.

PJT Partners/Man city: Their salaries are among the highest in the league and they've been on the rise ever since 2008.

RBS/Newcastle: Its been a rough few years for them, but hopefully they'll succeed under new ownership.
