I believe we need new rules in football to stop this kind of distortion of the game. If all the best players are bought by just a few completely financially unconstrained teams we end up with a permanent fix of football(until finaly Abramovic or the Sheikh get bored of their toys!)
I don’t blame Man Utd, they are a massive Club with a history, ok they are what they are partly because of the sympathy and emotional support following Munich but that’s not wrong like the showering of dubiously gained money simply to buy success.
I don’t care if Chelsea or Man City win anything because generally I will always see the team in a higher moral place like Everton or Villa as the real winners.
We need to limit the impact of greed and spending in football but it’s easier said than done.

I don’t think they can. With a somewhat weakened Arsenal, however, I do think they have a fair chance to brerak into the top 4.

The problem with spending so much and bringing lots of new players in is that it takes those players time to gel and throughout the season there’s always the chance of unrest at not being in the first 11.

It is time we start hearing from others no wonder christiano left… he knew what was coming. And not to forget all the players mark bought are unselfish!

Chelsea have not won a major like Manu, Liverpool have done before. But after Roman bought the club then club history has been tranformed from nothing to winning ways. This makes chelsea feel buoyant. I agree with few that everybody cannot be like chelsea. Mancity can be better, not by buying the talented top players, but they have to have a gud manager who influence the team to glory. I wonder how Hughes manages big players like Robhino, Tevez, barry, ade…. Bec money cannot win everything. To win not only money is required but the right players and a man who can inspire the team to topple EPL the big guns is essential.

Money asside if the team believe they can win…then they will win…will we win the league?…I don’t think we will this season but top 6 has to be a must with the view to the long term…. I would still like to see another defensive signing before saying we were on paper favourites though… compared to our rivals across the way with rio and vidic in the defense…. it’s by no means a given that city will be the top team in manchester.. but never the less fingers crossed

they might have robinho, adebayor, gareth barry, tevez, santa cruz, etc. but they havent been together for long enough and they need a new manager. i think either chelsea, arsenal or liverpool will win this year

Man United, Liverpool and Chelsea have teams that have played together for a couple of years and that team spirit will be fueled by the possibility that the upstarts could pull the rug from under them. Do not underestimate Wenger or O’Neill – even though O’Neill says that City can take the League.
