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.
