Oh dear - calling someone's views ridiculous is being nice - thanks for the kindness Mr. Santorum.

The fact is there is a real question about whether we had to do things the way we did and why we chose to. I submitted a piece here that shows categorically that the insistence that the only choice we had was between the current policy in place in trying to match the spending of Man City or Chelsea - even relatively - is a dubious claim at best.

We could easily have spent 50 to 100% more than we have since 2005 and still have significant monies banked away and have invested in significantly higher level of talent than we did. That is categorical fact. And we could have done this without once spending what we spent buying Andrei Arshavin.

I don't need you to be nice mate but don't pretend calling someone ridiculous for having the gall not to see reality as you do is being nice. You can insult me but don't insult my intellignce. It's way more sensitive than I am about that sort of @#$%&.
