United had a sugar daddy to buy titles for them? Or have owners who take millions off them?

Interesting insight.
I find this point interesting because PSG got a far worse version of it in Colony Capital, @BBRBB probably has nightmares about it.:lol:

Utd fans often do and implicitely you too since there's nothing else to complain about PSG.
So I didnt complain about money? I just find it ironic that you complained about rules in football when your club isnt exactly a shining light for fair game? Even without you and City we would still be crap, so I dont care about how many domestic trophies you guys win.

Again, I was shocked at the irony, nothing about your money.

What would your club be without your owner? Lyon would still be slapping you about every year.

Indeed, even our great 90s team in the Canal+ era was dispatched by foreign teams throwing money they didn't have and slowed down by internal politics.

In Ligue 2, though Seydoux is as important particularly when it comes to money.
Fair enough but OL are a bad example to use when comparing PSG to a French club who have decades of tradition and organic growth, aren't they?

True, it's not a good comparison since PSG had a consistent history of success for a while when OL had to be saved from the depths of lower divisions by investors and was mostly irrelevant before the 3rd millenium.

In its decision, the Legal Committee considered that AS Monaco had already been sentenced by the League on 5 February and that it could not sanction a club twice for the same reason.

So they agreed with Hannibal Mejbri's family argument, but refuse to sanction Monaco, therefore found in Monaco's favour, and the contract stands?

United have made their own money. PSG have had it given to them. That's what everyone complains about.

With all these young foreign talents - is it still true that if they were with the club before the age of 18, they will count as 'homegrown' after 3 years with us?

10 million for a 16-year-old. Must be a record?

Always great to see young talents joining the club!

How can we sign him before he's 18, though?

Supposed be a huge talent and €10m is alot of money for a 16 year old. But it will be enjoyable watching the likes of Mejbri, Hoogewerf, Forson, Shoretire, Emeran, Mejia etc in the coming seasons.

Madrid paid something like 50m last year for a Brazilian kid.. someone who couldnt move till he was 18.

It’s sadly not the first place record. Real paid shitloads for that Brazilian kid.

10m?! Wow seems a bit crazy but I guess we rate him extremely highly. Let’s hope that fee will look tiny soon.

Real Madrid paid £39.6m for 16 year old Junior and circa £40m for 17 year old Rodrygo
Ah, I forgot all about Junior and Madrid.

Insane gambles, but if any of these players develop close to a Messi or Ronaldo level, you'll be looking at a decade+ of domination.

Or at least a big money fee to an oil club when they're 23...
