    Let's look at the top ten most expensive buys, to August 2006.

    http://www.footballeconomy.com/stats...urnover_07.htm

    Seems to me that manutd spend just as much as they do.

    Could it be that, for years manutd were buying it. Then when someone else comes along and does it they complain that team has "just bought the title."

    pot calling the kettle black i say.

    Either way spending mega money on players does not guarantee anything. Shall i bring up the bog standard defense of our spending by pointing at real madrid. they have spent a fortune

    zinadine zidane 47 million
    luis figo 38.7 million
    david beckham 23 million
    real ronaldo 25 million

    and have payed their players huge sums and have won nothing in the last few years.

    Most ManU fans have always talked crap which is the main reason that they are so disliked.
    I don't care for their, "everyone hates us because we're successful and they're just jealous," bullshit. I wanted them to lose all the time when they were relegated and did all through the 90s. Nothing's changed here.
    I'm a United fan and proud of it.

    Not enough IMO; I think he's a great manager.

    To be fair they also have a turnover around that of manutd and chelski put together tho'. They also run at a profit, or at least did so in 03/04 and 04/05. During the same period you chaps lost 200,000,000

    You're not even in their league.

    Chelsea have spent much more than Man Utd since they got the rich chairman, but that's not the be all and end all of what buying the title is all about.

    No-one has ever really accused Man Utd of buying the title for a very good reason - their outstanding youth policy. There simply isn't another club in the world capable of producing, and keeping, talent on the scale that Man United does.

    I mean, look at Chelsea's youth policy ... oh, wait. I'm asking the impossible.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    I agree with the youth policy thing, from many moons ago.

    Who has come thro' it over say the last 5 years.

    True question, I have no idea.

    NUFC are ripe for the picking. There's the makings of a top team / club there if it was in the right hands.

    Doesn't Steven Taylor come from the Newcastle youth setup?
