Money Can`t Account For Everything!

As we head towards the New Year, with Christmas Day done and dusted, Sir Alex Ferguson has put his foot on the pedal and upped the ante when it comes to mind-games.

Although City hold a lead over us at the top of the table, Sir Alex has had a snipe at their buy-everything policy, remarking in the media,

"Yes, money can buy success as we saw when Chelsea suddenly became cash rich."

"And we are witnessing a similar surge by Manchester City under their wealthy owners."

"Their transfer clout has taken them to the top of the league and they are favourites to win the title."

"But, while recruiting some of the world`s leading players can lift you into contention for honours, it doesn`t necessarily take you all the way as I hope we will be bale to demonstrate before the end of the season as other factors come into play."

In a way I agree but sometimes, and I apologise if I`m being churlish, I think Sir Alex tends to forget how much money we`ve paid out in transfer fees over the years!

Money always has and always will buy success, the last two decades in particular in England are testament to that but this isn't a new phenomenon, as long as there's been professional football there's always been those that have had more money than others and if you look back through English football's history this has usually correlated with success.
