      You know what I've been thinking.

      Why doesn't Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juve etc go and raid the likes of City and leave us alone? Wages?

      City would blow the likes of Barca and Juve out the water with a new contract offer.

      They are competitive (last season aside)

      Continually adding class players as a sign of intent.

      Off the top of my head like.

      There is also a bit of you don't want to antagonise a beast who could destroy you.

      If they wanted Abu Dabai and Quatar could offer the likes of Messi et al £1M a week to prise them away.

      Have also thought that, perhaps a bit of a mutual agreement between the two that they stay away from eachother's star players. Barca could go for KDB but as you say, City could easily go for Messi and I don't think Barca would take a risk like that. With us it's different though, there's only 2 teams that can really afford a deal like that and we aren't one of them so Barca have nothing to fear from us.

      Fair enough.

      I just get pissed off when we're trying to rebuild we are continuously rinsed of our best players. Let City buy Messi, I'd love to see it. But I see your point though.

      Maybe we need richer owners then?  ;)

      Do you want that though, just to buy the title with unlimited funds ala Citeh, PSG, or win by creating a really great team with a mix of youth brought through and senior players bought in?

      Let's be honest if we're not going to win the league any time soon - I would love to see the world's best player in my lifetime to test himself in the league I follow.

      Of course, I would love it to be LFC, but we've got to remain realistic haven't we?

      Well actually going back to your initial point is that has already happened my friend.

      The right amount of money used on the right players in the right position at the right time. Especially now with players earning wages that some of the greats gone by who could only afford their fish and chips during the week - is sickening.

      We're only just catching up to the way it's working by shelling out astronomical wages to players like Van Dijk, here you had to earn that wage. Now they get it to come here, it's ludicrous but it's the market.

      Either way there will be people that still moan.
      The people that say they don’t want that aren’t really in a position to then be saying about a lack of spending under FSG.

      Can’t please everybody. Personally I just want us to be the best again, I don’t care how we make that happen so long as it does.

      Yeah, that’s kinda what happened with them and PSG when they went after Verratti.

      when players start getting a million a week, it will be the time to stop paying a penny towards financing football. Increasing ticket prices whilst player salaries jumping that high would not feel right.

      💰 Money Spent on Defence:

      🔵 Man City = £281m
      🇱🇻 Latvia = £280m
      🇧🇦 Bosnia = £250m
      🇦🇲 Armenia = £225m
      🇵🇾 Paraguay = £145m
      🇬🇭 Ghana = £120m

      😳 Placing them 94th in the world for Defence Budget. 🌍

      Rank hypocrisy of Guardiola beautifully exposed by David Conn here. Away from his poster boy image as some sort of progressive warrior he is in fact just a greedy and corrupt little man.
