Armchair - I know you think I keep chipping away at you and I am but, when did Messi get transferred for £100 million + wages?
Are you equating some football manger game you play with the real football world because that seems to be where you get your info from?
Fervie didn't buy Van Persie so he could thumb his nose at City, he bought him because he knew he would deliver the title for him. Simple.
Do you know if you we're our manager the club would have no money be ause you would overspend on transfers and you would pay so much compensation getting rid of all the managers that don't deliver instant results!
