Some decent signings for the season. Oscar and Eden Hazard stand out, but the wad has also come out in the last two days for Victor Moses & Cesar Azpilicueta.
Wigan & Marseille are both happy. We do help these smaller clubs by buying their players. Like arse, for example, when we gave arse[nal] all that money for Ashley Cole, and even did them a favour by loaning them one of our many spare midfielders, Yossi Benayoun, for last season. This saved arse[nal] spending money on buying another International midfielder, and we still paid most of his salary.
These smaller, feeder clubs should be thankful and grateful there are us bigger boys around who have all these spare players and lots of cash. I mean, just think how much Man City & Barcelona have helped arse[nal]’s P&L and balance sheet over the last few seasons, which they seem to worry about so much and hold so much pride in their financial model.
7 years and counting.
