Matty C.:your right, money is making a mockery of the game but it was making a mockery of it years before man city had any money. Chelsea, Blackburn, Man utd have all spent big over the years.. Man city have not taken over united... so i dont know what you mean by that.. maybe your scared of a bit of competition. im not. im relishing the games. be even sweeter when we beat them. Chelsea spent 75m in the last january window....75m bloody million and it got them NOTHING. Dont worry my friend, United will be alright What do you mean by city not having any history anyway?? they were quite successful in the late 60's early 70's..... is that not history??
I am aware that United have spent a lot of money in the past, but this was 'earnt' by success and good marketing...not simply because hugely rich people want a new toy.
City do have some history, but it pales into insignificance compared to United.
I suppose I am worried where it will end. If United do get taken over by super rich owners...our Prem will become as boring as Scotland and Spain...just a a bit fed up with where it is all heading.
They can't pay for history/legacy.
What i dont get is why spend all that money on an academy and what not, when players from the academy/youth/reserves just wont get played... They will get shipped out or spend a lifetime on the bench as the manager continues to fill his squad with big name primadonas.
Just seems such a waste
If it makes em feel like a massive club then they can add a conservatory for all I f*******g care.
Matty C.:who cares? its just a training facility to improve their team....whats wrong with that... shows they are looking to the future maybe to raise their own kids through the ranks rather than splashing the cash for players. Maybe im wrong but i think this thread is over dramatic and has a hint of jealousy in it..
Money is making a mockery of the game I love...one of my friends (a Chelsea supporter) has given up on the whole Prem thing and bought a Peterborough season ticket.
