View Full Version : I wonder if moyes was approached
29-04-2007, 04:17 PM
Big news that big sam resign from bolton going to man city next season.
I wonder was moyes approached as well. I'm shock that big sam decides to leave just like that and at this current stage of the season where they are fighting for uefa slot. He left with an unfinish task and to me, it left a very bad taste.
Back to moyes, if he was indeed approached, I'm glad he didn't leave just because of the millions at city next season due to the take over.
It's good news nevertheless, as bolton will crumble next season without big sam and we have one less team to worry about next season. As for big sam at man city, success won't happen overnite and it'll be another 2 or 3 seasons before they stabilise and threaten us.

If city could attract investor, I really don't understand why it can't happen to us. Surely we have a team with better future compare to them, our team have better prospect and talent too. We have less debt than they do. What is it that makes them more attractive than us?
If we had 20 million transfer budget for next season, we will have a chance of making champions league.
Whereas a 20 million budget for city will prevent them from relegation or maybe uefa qualification the most.

Not clear at all why he wants to go to City, just when he is certain to have got BW into europe, very strange. But in the wind about a takeover there. Also in the wind of a takeover of the Saints by Microsoft co-founder.

The Saints??? Which co-founder?? The one who also owns the Seattle Seahawks?
29-04-2007, 09:17 PM
The rumour is that Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, is going to takeover Southampton FC

He has quite a bit more money than Roman Abramovich, and if the Seahawks are a benchmark, he will be quite liberal with his wallet. We need to get him onboard with us now!!!

I don't really mind if someone REALLY RICH comes onboard. Look, it's all about money these days. At the end of the day we can't really compete if other teams splash 20 million every summer. Teams like Portsmouth, spurs, villa, and city will overtake us with their fat wallet. As long as someone is RICH enough to sustain just like how chelski benefit it's fine with me!

Thing is, Paul Allen would run it correctly, rather than just plowing money aimlessly into players. I would much rather have him onboard than a questionable Russian billionaire.

It's about us, not seville. I'm glad that they did well. But honestly, do you really think we can win the league with a annual transfer budget of 5 million?

Man Utd rise to greatness will be an isolated case. They have half a dozen talented youngster breaking into the first team at the same time. And all of them made big impact to the team.
Tell me honestly, do you think we can have players of butt, 2 x neville, giggs, beckham, scholes and gillispie(all these went on to form the core team of the successful man utd era) calibre coming from out youth rank within the next 3 season? If we can't produce, the natural thing is to buy, if we can't afford to buy, be prepare to stay stagnant while watching other teams improve. When Man Utd can't produce another keane, what did they do? they splash on carrick. When they can't find another beckham from the youth team, what did they do? they splash on ronaldo as well. It's all about money in this league.
Even moyes admit his job could be made easier if he had the funds of thoes rich clubs so I don't know what is there to argue here.

You got a point there. I hope we can find or produce half a dozen prodigies for the next few seasons. Until then, we still need to pay the price if we trying to get quality like fernandes or johnson. And if some sugar daddy comes along and give us some incentive I will not be upset about it.
