    This is hilarious this, made me laugh this morning. In paragraph three you forget to add ‘And they have done so by spending more money than the vast majority of clubs in the English top flight’.

    Plus Arsenal aren’t going to be a threat until they start spending the money again.

    Other managers, those that had not been there, seen it and done it before, might have been awed by Manchester City’s financial power, but Ferguson simply weighed up his options, made the tweaks that he felt was necessary and left them to get on with the job?

    By that I gather you mean he went out and spent a lot of money?

    There have been no tantrums at Old Trafford this season? What about Manchester United (along with Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs) running off to tell teacher now that other clubs have come along that can not only match their spending but surpass it? Spitting the dummy and asking for these financial ‘fair’ play rules to be introduced in order to protect the financial advantage they have always enjoyed? You forgot about that one.

    Well at least you got ‘money will be the driving factor behind the the game for its foreseeable future’ right. Its the driving factor now and has been for the last ten years. Take a look at those clubs that have won the Premier League and check the wages they pay. And both Manchester clubs have lots of cash, more than most. That’s why they win the Premier League.
