I'm not sure I agree. As I pointed out, they've spent loads of money (or at least given the manager the proceeds of sales to spend) unlike some cunt like, say, Ashley. It's not their fault loads of that cash appears to have been wasted.
Sterling's going no matter how much money is offered to him - again, not like you can say "They're not willing to pay for the talent once they've developed it".
I hear what your saying, but I think a lot of that money was spent on middle mark, 6 out of 10, or 7 out of 10 players with the hope of making them into good to brilliant 8 out of 10 or 9 out of 10 players who we can sell on. If by a miracle we developed three or four 9 out of 10 players at the same time, kept them for a season longer than we should, put a team together and challenged, then they can say that was the plan all along, when in fact it's just a bonus for them.
I reckon you need at least five top mark, 8 or 9 out of 10 players in your side to win the league, if Sterling thought we had that kind of caliber coming in, plus the wages, I think he would have stuck around. No chance are FSG about to sign five top players, they couldn't sign for a fucking parcel. So in a round about way, they're not willing to do what needs to be done to keep the talent there. Again though, point taken.
