Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Oh yeah I wouldn't quibble that City have taken it to a whole new level, but then the game itself have moved on neccesitating you have to spend more to buy the title (though it still took a lot of effort to win it even with all that dosh) and I certainly remember Blackburn going very much overboard, I remember when we were both in the championship together in the 90s they were literally buying players just to stop other teams getting them, or to stop other teams having them--Duncan Shearer being the classic exemple. They had a ridiculous squad of 40 or 50 professionals at one stage I recall.

Will be interesting to see what City do next, they surely have to start offloading a few fringe players at least!
