I don’t know why people are still so hung up on money.
Because of what United and Arsenal did decades ago they deserves to sit above everyone else for eternity?
Because United can negotiate a ridiculous sponsorship deal (as in businessmen doing deals in rooms with businessmen) it’s all great football management?
Selling players with value at the right time like livestock is good honest work?
Clubs that finance stadiums to generate long term profits by setting up property businesses are doing it the right way?
Manchester City should have accepted their place as the 15th-40th best team in the country and never ever had ideas of doing better than that without 40 years of ground work?
This notion that clubs who happened to be at the top of the tree when the money started rolling in (United, Arsenal, Liverpool etc.) are somehow deserving of their place is really a strange one. I’m not saying City or Chelsea are in any way deserving of anything, but without them it would have just been the already rich clubs getting richer. It’s just we wouldn’t have minded because we’d have been one of them.
In the old days you could put a team together and make it win, now the best teams are bought and whether they’re bought by Arsenal, City or United doesn’t really bother me because the PL has basically been bought by one of the richest clubs in nearly every year of it’s existence.
