Ah, a Sheikhy fans throwing the word "plastic". Always makes me laugh. Though it is an apt description of your club, ever since it got bought by the middle eastern oil barron.

Hopefully City won't forget to send a cake for Mansoors birthday or he might do a Yaya Toure.

Post numbers and sources. Making claims with no real evidence is an internet specialty. Though you are right on one thing, spending went up and transfer fees got inflated with the advent of the PL as money flowed into all PL clubs. It also resulted in quality players coming to England and us fans enjoying some fantastic football. Its only since the advent of the sugar daddy that player fees and more importantly wages are out of control. Sheikhy gifted rubbish players 100-150k simply because they don't have to balance the books like traditional clubs. 100 mil loss...no problem, Sheikh will just toss some money into Man City's begging bowl to cover it.

synergy - In Sir Alexs 1st 7 years he was the highest net spending manager in the league. Fergusons United team that finished 11th in 1989 cost 14 times more than the Arsenal team that won the league. Many would say that the inflation of transfer fees and influx of foreign owners was caused by the advent of the Premier League and influx of plastic fans (like yourself) it attracted meaning more money going to the established top teams as fans were supporting clubs for glory rather than locality or love.

@mootilated (Arsenal)> Who said Ozil was overpriced? 42 mil is a fair price for a player of his quality, in the current sugar daddy inflated market. Personally I am rooting for Arsenal to once again splash some big money for a quality striker as it would make the league a lot more competitive and hence more fun.

I did laughed when someone compared Shaw to Carroll. As soon as Carroll was signed, everyone (except Kenny) knew it was a huge blunder as he was a Fat Sam type player, not a player for a club hoping to win things. On the flip side Shaw has undoubted potential. Its still a risk as sometimes potential doesn't end up as performance. However its a chance United had to take.

Lastly all the sugar daddy clubs have proved that in football you can buy the league. Simply put if the traditional clubs expect to compete with Sheikh and Romans playthings, they will have to spend and I fully expect Pool as well as Arsenal to spend big as well. Only the genius of SAF could win title without matching the spendings of the sugar daddies & SAF is enjoying his retirement.

England call-up for Clyne

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
