Is Money Everything?

In today’s world, money is, sadly, everything. Especially in recent years, when the recession struck, and the whole world found itself one day with the lack of resources and money that they had just the day before. Sports are no exception, I mean, that is probably the main reason why it is played. Of course, many would say that it is for entertainment, and I say to those people: «That is a great positive thought, but come on, get real». Seeing all the players, the people involved in sports, and all the money the handle, makes me wonder where does it stop? When is the limit, because, in this recession time there have been much more immoral transactions then before. Just look at Cristiano Ronaldos move from Manchester United to Real Madrid. Of course, I don not deny or diminish that he is a great player, but 94 million euro is I think too much for any man, or woman, to pay. In today world especially, where there are many better ways to spend money, are there are many people who need it more. But that is the corporate world, the rich get richer, and the poorer get poorer.

So lets look at the biggest spender in the last 2 years out there, Manchester City. Why and how are they the biggest spenders? They are owned by a private company from the United Arabian Emirates, which has obviously a lot of many and desire to invest it. So they bought, forgive me all fans of City, but then just an average club, and are now trying to turn it into the greatest one. For season 2009/2010 they spend over 100 million pounds buying all sorts of star players from different clubs. Names like Gareth Barry, Emmanuel Adebayor and Carlos Tevez came to the club to boost it onto a whole new level. But there is some thought that by just putting the greatest players on Earth in the same team would not make an unbeatable team, but a chaotic one in which all of them could not get along. Of course, nobody has ever tried this, but City are doing everything they can, I believe, to achieve this. It may take a few years, everyone knows that they were often turned down by some star players because they believed it was just an average club. Some accepted, to try to lift the level of this club or to prove the skeptics wrong. I believe, and maybe this is just my opinion, that last year the problem was not in the players, although there were some that many people would not characterize as high class. No, I believe the problem was in the coach. Mark Hughes, all respect to him as a player, he was brilliant, but as a coach I think he lacked the experience of running high classed teams that compete for the title. I mean, it is a whole different conception if you are fighting for the title or if you just say: «Oh, lets just try to do our best and finish as high as we can.» City had some high class players, some of them mentioned already, but Hughes could not consolidate them. This is an example of how money, buying high class players, does not mean you will instantly go top of the world. Of course the folks at Manchester City knew this, so they just set a goal of reaching the Champions League spot, which was also not achieved.

I waste? Perhaps, but the surely learned something from that. This year, at the start of season 2010/2011, they already spent over 100 million pounds on new players (they have a new coach from last season, Roberto Mancini, which signed and coached them the last few games last season), with the likes of Balotelli, David Silva, Boateng and so on joining them on their quest to glory. Will it finally be achieved, after all these years being in the shadow of their biggest rival (United), will they finally fulfill their goal. We will see. At the start of the season it does not look good, they lost a friendly match against Borussia Dortmund, beat Valencia which is in big financial problems and lots of its key players, and drew with Tottenham Hotspur at the start of the Premier League. More importantly in that last game, they did not play well at all, Tottenham was a much better team, and if they want to go for the title, these are the games that they should start winning. Will money be everything, is yet to be seen. The rest of the world seems to think so.
