When chelsea were the richest club in the world and buying their way to the league they went out and spent a fortune on young world class players. City seem to be spending a fortune on has beens and players that other clubs don't want or are desperate to get rid of. Given, toure, adebayor, tevez, barry, bellamy, santa cruz. Every one of em is either past or approaching their sell by date, or a complete pain in the #$%$ that their old club couldn't wait to get out the door
you so right, i am a arsenal fan and very happy at the moment we offloaded ade for 25 mil, as heslazy and a one season wonder. now you have toure 28 years old and to be honest did little last season at arsenal. i cant see ade or toure getting any etter this seaosn i think toure is burning out and ade, cant produce when it matters.
Shevchenko, Ballack, Lampard, Drogba, Deco, Ferrera, Carvalho, Belleti, Hillario.....is that the "young talent" you were referring to? The best young player Chelsea have obtained in the last 10 years is...Sturridge, a city academy export.
