Football disparity
« on: November 22, 2011, 08:15:37 PM »
So much talk about creating an equal playing field in football through financial regulations.
Seriously when has football not suffered from financial disparity!
Spain
Italy
England
Germany
Turkey
France: all these countries football has always been dominated by the teams with financial clout. Even in the old communist countries it was the same. The Party team or military dominated.
Look at Champions League which is now the Super league of the elite. Lille last years French surprise team was the exception rather than the rule. Now they are in CL with an operating budget of 14.5 million pounds for the entire playing staff. Less than most of the CL Teams pay for a single player.

What would be great is to see UEFA say everybody has a budget of $150 mil. or what ever. Make it work & may the best team win. If not UEFA cut the bs, because most teams are simply running on debt and killing football leagues.
To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead
