Adebayor is better than edin dzeko

Manchester City

comment on the article

Hi city fans edin dzeko good player but i dont think hes strong enough for the premiership.

Hes a very clever, inteligent player, good touch, great finisher.

But hes not the strongest and in the premiership its tough for strikers especially strikers from abroad it takes time.

Adebayor is a better player he just got the wrong attitude

Would be wasting money in my opinion.

If man city are going to for a striker they have to go for someone like fernando llorente someone whos big, but also physical and likes to bully defenders

Some very strange comments on here... Very strange.

Since when do spurs have 6 kits out????

It's three the same as every other team laugh

Anyway the big difference between steam like spurs and a team ilike man city is quite clearly this.

Tevez 258k a week

Van deer vaart 55k a week

'Yes Spurs have spent money, Arsenal too for that matter, but they have balanced their books and they are not getting success by sponging off rich arabs or Russian oligarchs.
There is a huge difference!'

What?!! How is there a huge difference? Unless I'm very much mistaken, Spurs' money has largely come straight from the pocket of their billionaire Bahamas-based benefactor. They have spent an absolute fortune over the years, most of it- until now- completely wasted. During the time that Spurs were splashing the cash on anybody who moved, many other clubs (City included) were having to make do with cast-offs and hand-me-downs. Considering Spurs 'last title was nearly 50 years ago, I really don't think you can say they've generated the hundreds of millions of pounds that they've squandered...

The net spend for spurs over the past ten years is 80 million.

That's called good business less than ten mill a season ok


If o ly every club could afford to hand 1 mill a month to some of their players

Thankyou, finally someone talking some sense.

Yes Spurs have managed their finances and managed to balance their books with sales aswell as buys quite well. However, anyone who thinks this money has been wholly internally generated is deluded.

How could a mid table team suddenly rocket to having a spending spree that catapulted them into the leagues top four spenders, and then finish 11th in that season but carry on spending the next?

Oh and by the way, I'd much rather our wages were paid by a rich billionaire rather than me and the other fans forking out for six kits and paying the wages, put it that way!

So you think our money is made by swindling the fans?

Our ticket prices are thesame as every london club.


And do you really think humans will buy sic kits a season????


Really?

It's called sponsorship and it's what every club has to do


Well the oneswho can't afford to throw millions at some players every month

No I don't think your money is made by swindling the fans.

I think it's made largely from your billionaire benefactor.

Every club does do sponsorship, but how Spurs, who were a mid table team could get enough sponorship to be able to spend one of the largest amounts of money in the league eludes me.

Spurs have always had money, through the sixties to the eighties and even into the ninties... Don't let some mid table finishes in the late nighties blinker your vision of a consistently great club
