ive always hated that 'bought da title' nonsense

mainly comes from holier than thou united fans

the way they go on you'd think Scholes, Giggs et al payed week in week out for free out of some sort of civic duty to the club

sure you have work to do still, but you can't tell me purchasing power plays no part in success

i mean liverpool buying suarez is still exercising some degree of financial muscle

I dunno, I'm willing to bet that their wage expenditures aren't all that far behind the other big boys

obviously the transfer numbers are gonna be some distance lower, but transfer expenditure apparently doesn't matter nearly as much

In 1992, Blackburn gained promotion to the new Premier League a year after being taken over by local steel baron Jack Walker, who installed Kenny Dalglish as manager. In 1995, Blackburn became Premier League champions, having spent millions of pounds on players like Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton.
oh, uh, well then

liverpool can afford to waste money on elaborate practical jokes like paying kolo toure a wage, they're the worst spenders of the lot
