'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A New European Order

The times are a changing!

Clubs around Europe are emerging, backed by barrow-loads of money, to challenge the status quo of European competition.

The emergence of these new super-clubs is worrying Sir Alex Ferguson who, ahead of our vital clash in Switzerland this week, has remarked,

"There is a change in terms of the money the Russians have got and even a club like Apoel Nicosia have got, to bring in foreign players. Wealth is playing a part in that respect."

Being churlish some might say that United are now facing a level playing field though!

Financially we're not on a level playing field at all. These teams come into football with no business plan other than to create dream teams and attempt to dominate football ASAP and so distort the market, both in transfer fees and wages and make it impossible for anyone to compete. Our money we've made ourselves but even how much we earn isn't enough to compete with some teams nowadays. I've got nothing wrong with competition and actually look forward to playing all these dream teams but surely at some point a line must be drawn.

There hasn't been a level playing field since the CL was established, the revenues gained from this competition were and still are far too high in relation to what can be earned domestically. TF7, how do you know these investors have no business plan? Are you privvy to the inner workings of these clubs? Or are you just making assumptions? In case you hadn't noticed mate a line has been drawn with the FFP regulations, which were initially mooted following the embarrassment of UEFA when U*d and Chelsea competed the CL final, the reason for the embarrassment? The level of debt of both the clubs involved.

I really can't be arsed to have this argument Bluedub, I've had it what feels like a thousand times already. Put simply I don't know, I have no physcial evidence but sometimes all it takes is a bit of common sense. Anzhi spending 340k a week on Eto'o. Chelsea spending 100's of millions refurbishing their squad again. It's hard to tell with other clubs but even if a business plan is place nothing is ever straightforward, just look at Chelsea. For all their plans and reports they're making massive losses with no real sign of things improving any time soon. They never took into consideration that their academy might not produce the talent they need to sustain a serious challenge and are now paying millions on players to replace the old and aged ones they have now. They never anticipated the rise of Man City and Tottenham and are having to pay millions just to sustain a challenge for 4th.
TheFamousNo7
That's fair enough where Chelsea are concerned. It doesn't mean you should assume that these billionaire owners are all the same.
