This thread must be dyslexic then. Joke. Nah i agree, we bid whatever it takes and if we had the money im sure we'd do the same.moondog said:piazza, I won't quote you but I agree....this thread just screams out:
Now don't get p#ssed at me RFR!
...and then there was Berba, wasn't he briefly before Robinho or am I imagining?piazza said:Precisely. My point is, yes we have excellent homegrown talent, but we'd be nowhere without spending our cash.
Great stuff tb. This line in particular reminds me of the scene in "Life of Brian" when the leader of the People's Front of Judea (John Cleese) is trying to justify an attack on the Roman Empire:Toybos said:"Ok I hear what you say, but other than Pride, Ambition, Achievement, History, Passion and a large car park - what can they offer you?"
Grif SA said:A salary cap would be - as already stated - highly hypocritical. How about when Chelsea were spending a lot? Or us? No team called for a salary cap/transfer limit before. It's only now that the largest teams can be outbid is this cry for a cap happening. Let City spend however much they want. We can cry out about how ridiculous it is - and I agree with that - but to limit what they can do seems unjust.
As the saying goes: You can't buy class.
