    Asking if Thisgo's s good, why aren't Barca paying him could've been said for Cesc when he left, and he didn't turn out too shabby.

    of course. the natural comeback to that is talented or not, they have a strict wage structure for all up and coming players. but that would apply to Thiago too.
    Won't pretend to be an expert on the matter, but my understanding was that Barca couldn't get close to Arsenal for Fab's wages as he was under a certain age, and there's laws in place in Spain for that. So it's not the same situation for Thiago.


    besides, apparently United are looking to triple his wages. pretty sure Barca haven't got as much cash as United.
    I'd have thought Barca were as rich if not richer tbh, but again, don't really know.

    Wasn't it just a couple of seasons ago where they were in a financial dire due to massive debts, and had to get another government "loan"?

    Real have the highest legitimate revenue of any club in the world ($650m a year), and Barca are 2nd ($613m a year).

    Man U are third on $502m a year, some distance behind.

    Collectively spanish teams owe the government around 700m euros of unpaid taxes.

    The same government that just asked for a 4bn bailout.

    Out of interest, when did you last check that figure?

    Edit: WHOOPS! I thought you were talking about debt. Nevermind.

    I've no idea, you're the one going on about the illegitimate money they apparently have.

    It's not the fact that it's illegitimate it's the fact that they get so much more from TV than we can ever hope to as we have to (rightly) look after the interests of the league we play in.

    A loop hole Uefa need to address.

    How was it irrelevant to point out the Spanish clubs legitimate revenue surpasses Man U's in relation to your point?

    Take these "illegitimate" revenues out the equation and the Spanish clubs still have way more money. That's the point.

    Although to be honest I might just be missing whatever your point is. As ever it's a bit of a scattergun of whingyness.

    Its irrelevant because my point was that all of Man Utds money was debt free.

    Thats why i said : "They aren't debt free, but the last i looked they had to raise all their money legitimately unlike Barca / Real"

    Your point that Real / Barca earn more money legitimately than Man Utd has absoultely nothing to do with what I posted.

    if a thief earns 100k per year legitimately and you earn 50k per year legitimately, he is still a thief and you are not.

    Snippyness results in snippyness.

    I'm still not really following your point. I think you need to define what you mean by "legitimate". Both clubs are borrowing money, the Spanish ones just happen to be borrowing if from their own government.

    Let's all just agree on Man Utd being the bastion of well managed football clubs in the UK and move on.

    Why don't you two just stop pulling each others' pigtails and get a room?

    The Spanish clubs need to stop cheating the taxman and pay what they owe; clubs in other countries have to pay their tax bills or suffer the consequences, for example in the UK they face winding up orders from HMRC, leading to administration and points deductions or going out of business altogether.

    Just not paying isn't an option, and for several Spanish clubs to be running what amounts to unofficial loans from a Spanish government desperately in need of cash just isn't on.

    Also if Monaco want to play in the French league they should pay French taxes like the other clubs, fuck 'em.

    I'm pretty sure the Germans will get to the lack of tax paid by clubs if Spain ask for more money.

    They haven't asked for giant sums of money...yet.
