Is Any Player Worth £100million?

Is Any Player Worth £100million?

At the expense of creating a riot, I was just wondering what the general feeling was about Manchester City's proposed £107million purchase of Kaka.

This has absolutely nothing to do with Manchester City. As a QPR fan I cant exactly talk about not throwing the wealth around when & if - altho our Board seem rather more reluctant to throw their money around than the City Board does at present!

This is more to do with the ethical and moral and economic soundness of this transaction.

Surely a deal like this will fuel the flames of discontent? We are, just in case some hadn't noticed, in the middle of a rather serious economic down-turn and spending this sort of money on one player is obscene, in my opinion.

It will also serve to seriously mess up the transfer market for the future - clubs who want to sell to Manchester City in future will up their prices, just as when players' prices rose coz Abramovich started writing out cheques with checking how many noughts there were!

And when (I hope when not if!) QPR do make it into the Premier League, will we be able to 'compete' for players even with our so-called billionaires' backing? And this is not just about QPR but what about all other teams winning, and hoping to win, promotion this year and in the future? What about those teams already in the Premier League who don't have the financial clout of these big spenders? How will they survive?

Some people may say I am envious - not at all as this is not going to personally affect my team (at least, not yet, I hope!)

Every football fan should be afraid of the repercussions if this deal goes through and that is why I do think that UEFA or equivalent should step in before this deal threatens to change football in a big and not particularly pleasant way for ever.

No he is not worth it, but who do you blame, City for paying it, or Milan for asking for that much?

Its his money let him spend it how he wants. What is morally wrong is giving £200billion of our tax payers money to bankers who kepp it whilst ther rest of us suffer.

just so you can get some perspective. Highest paid golfer £900,000 week Highest Paid F1 driver £925,000 week Highest Paid Tennis Player £575,000 week Highest Paid Baseball Player £1,400,000 week Highest Paid Company director £4,900,000 week Where was all the outrage then. These are all 2006/7 figures

Purely from a football perspective - No but propelling the clubs image towards the global brand that Sheik Mansoor and ADUG require then maybe. People need to consider the bigger picture.

A bigger picture that could, ultimately, bankrupt football? Of course City, if they've got it, will spend it and, of course, Milan wont turn it down! That's not the point - should it be allowed to happen is more the point. It's not like Kaka's actually WORTH that sort of money - no one is, Jigga, not even that Co Director, let alone a sportsman - not when so manypeople are now losing their jobs and will lose a lot more, too, besides for the economic crisis is sorted out.

How on earth could it bankrupt football? You stupid fool! As for the economic crisis there's now an extra £100,000 going into the coffers. Stop being angry and start using your brain.

the ecconomic crisis was caused by no hopers who are now losing their jobs, borrowing money they cant afford spending it on ***** they did not need and thinking that cause they earn £15,000 a year they deserve to have a £500,000 house and a new car every six months. You are right nobody is worth that amount but the man has the money let him spend it how he wants. No one moaned when wages went above £100,000 cause everyone had the money. the reason I think most people are upset is the slow realisation that football is not immune to the current Financial downturn and that all the other teams who use banks to finance players will now not be able to do so. If he spends £1billion on players that will be £1billion more sloshing around world football to be spent by everyone more than if he doesnt spend. The only way clubs will spend big in this transfer window is when they have some of citys cash.

Swordfish - if you want to come on here & be pig rude, go ahead - but that wont make me (a) change my opinion to which I am entitled nor (b) think any higher of your opinion.
