The past week has been a roller-coaster ride of signings in the professional world of European Football. From the Stars talking about their goals with new clubs, to managers letting their feelings be heard on how other clubs are spending big money on players who are not worth the large amount cash.
It comes to my mind when a team who hasn't spend much of their years in challenging for league titles and Champions league titles as well haven't had the benefit of Champions League money over a long period and also haven't had the success to generate the large amounts of money, there is nothing wrong in spending. I am not speaking about Manchester United, Liver Pool , Chelsea or Arsenal. In my opinion Manchester City will be the team to watch in the EPL.
The significant signings are now boggling minds if the big 4 can be broken to see a new team contending for the top 4. With the likes of Tevez, Cruz, Barry the players them selves are attracting other quality players.
Emmanuel Adebayor and Joleon Lescott is on Hughes' wanted list for the time being. With Sir Alex letting out his emotions on the way they are spending is disrespectful to Manchester City. To me it is not a class act from a manager known to be such a class act. The Manchester United manager went on to call some of their progress"stupid'' and "unrealistic'' offers. Is Sir Alex scared of a new challenge in front of him?
It is good to see this, I can say if Manchester City does fail to match Champions League or the Top 5, the experiment of buying world class Footballers can live only for a short period of time for this new excited club.
Mark Hughes is also excited for the upcoming season and reports have told the Football world, the manager for the 1st time in upcoming seasons is actually happy to be coming back from vacation in a short period of time to prepare for the 2009/2010 EPL Season.
