Arsene Wenger has insisted Arsenal’s achievements should never be directly compared to Chelsea’s because of the Roman Abramovich factor.
Just Wondering Mr Wenger If you were the manager of chelsea WILL YOU COMPLAIN ?
Wenger was the Chelsea manager He wouldn't have spend so much money in any player. Most expensive player he has ever gotten is Arshavin for 15million. I doubt he would pay 20million for someone like Messi......Messi. Other than that I doubt he would complain at having so much money available.
i bet if he was our manager he would have bought all the highest-rated youngsters like aguero-de gea-bojan (if possible) and others he often talks about youngsters he admire but can't be afforded so if he was our manager what will stop him to buy them if he has the resources?
Looks Like he already got his excuse
Well he is kind of right if it was not for Abramovich Chelsea would not be in the same position as they are
very good point if you can look at the statistics of the last 3 seasons chelsea's most expensiive player was zhirkov=18M + chelsea has started to buy YOUNG PLAYERS for their academy (kakuta,kalas,sturridge...) not to mention that they departed joe cole,ballack (what a shame),belletti,deco...because of their high wages + Abrahamovic cut all the players bonuses and said that we will buy with the MONEY GENERATED from profits soo for chelsea all the big spending is over...it's man city's turn
I dont like then way some clubs spent in the premier league when abramovich took over they spent like 100M in his first season City spent like 200m I think it is wrong should spent more on development of their own players rather than buying all the time
spend on development of own players like by them a new leg?? How do you expect to do this?? Such a lame excuse. You can buy all the best facilitys in the world but if you not got the players you going nowhere. City have great upcoming players already and now we dont have to sell them like in the past. (We had to sell all our best like Giggs, Anelka, Shawn Wright t name a few YES GIGGS came from city acedemy Anelka didn't but we couldn't afford to keep). But for now we need somebody to get us to the top 4 while them teens are getting there. Chelsea didnt think about youngsters and missed out on a couple of premiership titles thanks to the reds but bought well and are now back on top. City are covered in both areas with players like Hart and Johnson coming up are team age average is very low.
you should get your infos right when abrahamovic bought chelsea they were a debt-ridden club just like portsmouth they had no money we would have been in administration if abrahamovic didn't took over and we didn't have any young players...our academys were extremely poor
Barca for example is the team with the right attitude 7 players of the starting 11 are all products of Barca youth academy Ajax also does that the rest of the teams just buys I am not saying that either City or Chelsea have bad young players but that they spend 200M each transfer window which is big shame as the young players will not get a chance if there be 4 or 5 players competing for the team places
even though it's off topic but barca bought david villa (40M) more than chelsea bought players in the last 2 season
Well you are right but the rest of the team is from their academy and thats the main reason for their excellent morale and team spirit you cant see the same spirit anywhere else the team performance is always brillant to watch and by the way thats the point of football its suppose to be entertaining and Barca provides that in every game really wished Liverpool played like them
