Yes but Robinho was bought on th first day of takeover as a statement signing, not anything else. We probably wouldn't have considered buying him in today's market due to his attitude. Robinho couldn't cut it in the premier league, end of. He went to Real Madrid, the biggest club on the planet, and he was exactly the same. How would it be different at Barca or United?That last part is just utter bullshit. They had dreams to get to the top 4 and win trophies. We got to the semi final of the league cup and battled Spurs until the last week of the football season to lose out on a top 4 place. Isn't exactly as if we've thrown matches away. We didn't have a good enough team, overall (weak defence) to make the top 4, therefore we didn't. A few additions, we'll be perfectly set for even a title challenge, that's all.
Its more than just the buyings. Its the attitude of the players towards the team. Robinho is a perfect example. If he had gone to Barca or Man Utd, it would of been different. The problem is that players in Citeh have nothing that inspires them to win, just dreams.
