Game went when Abramovic bought the league. The middle east money has just dived in when they saw the Premier League was up for sale.

Can't wait until the Saudis rename St James because they can't handle it being named after an infidel.

Could be hilarious for a year or two; chucking huge money at cunts who just want a payday.

We've been spoilt by United doing that with players for the last 10 years. Now they have a half decent squad with much better workrate, the manager is a dud. Laughing out loud

To all my Northern brethren - remember this day!

I don't even care if we aren't challenging for league titles and European cups (although it would be nice) - just want to see a competitive team on the pitch every Saturday afternoon with a little ambition playing decent football.

Be interesting to see who the first "Robinho" signing is

Fucking delighted. Vowed 5 years ago not to invest emotionally or financially until the twat that sucked the soul out of the club left. Had to listen to pricks like Rio Ferdinand say we should be thanking him. Clueless.

Nailed it Justin - don't care who they sign or whether they win silverware just want to have hope. Howay the lads Ubercool

Hopefully they extend the big 6 to the big 10 to fit Arsenal in somehow…

What's bitter about that? Spend the most money you win the most trophies. Abramovic understood it and exploited it. Nothing much to do with sporting competition is it? I don't begrudge Newcastle celebrating that their Ashley days are over - good for them. Downtrodden football fans don't give a fuck where the money comes from or why their clubs are being bought. The only way clubs have a chance of competing these days is to get dodgy billionaires to bankroll them.

I don't think you can say foreign investment ruined the game and created a playing field that isn't level when it wasn't level in the first place.
