Not sure about that last line...
Exactly, itís nonsense regarding Liverpool, whose owners put nothing into the transfer kitty apart from profits earned by the club.  Which of course is better than the situation at United where the owners take some profits for themselves every year (although still end up with a bigger transfer kitty). But completely different to the situation at City in particular whoís owners continue to plough in the money. RomanA obviously ploughed in hundreds of millions to get Chelsea to the top, but I think he stopped in recent years.

The key is buying the right players with the money and then deploying them appropriately on the pitch.

100% correct with your last line Hound.
The woman in red has the car parked on the slope.

The key for Everton, WHU and whoever else is the chasing pack, is not to squander the budget on top 6 cast offs e.g. more Souceks, fewer Iwobis.

The key for Spurs, Liverpool and Arsenal not to squander their big investments in the players with the wrong mentality / lack of drive to succeed e.g more Manes, fewer NDombeles.

The key for meagwealthy City, Chelsea and United is to maintain a balanced squad so that when they inevitably sack a manager, their successor isnít left with no choice but to play underperforming players / players in the wrong position.

United have been making a mess of this for years. Look at their bench yesterday. Over a million pound and a half a week in wages out the door, and not one of them fit to challenge for starting position.
