I'm looking forward to PFA Chief Executive Gordon Taylor putting out a statement today condemning the move of Kaka from AC Milan to Real Madrid. Similarly at UEFA headquarters in Nyon Switzerland where I'm sure President Michel Platini will be pontificating on the social responsibility of clubs to not spend vast sums on transfers.
As you'll recall in January City almost single handily caused the decline in western civilization by bidding for Kaka. Editorials rained down about how the club was ruining football. But of course it wasn't that money was ruining football, it was that a club such as City was attempting to join the elite.
And no, haters and doubters, City have not joined the elite. When we have won something and qualified for the Champions League then and only then, will we be part of the conversation. Until then the club must build, sometimes gradually and sometimes spectacularly the squad that allows the change to occur.
So it's one of three things. Either clubs shouldn't spend large sums on players. Or clubs should be allowed to buy whomever they want. Or do Gordon Taylor, Michel Platini and their ilk believe only a Real Madrid, Manchester United and other established Champions League side should be allowed to prosper?
Mr. Taylor, Monsieur Platini, City fans await your public statements on the matter.
