Quote from: Enzo on January 10, 2022, 02:06:41 AMThat's fair enough, but you're missing massive subtext (on many points) in Davies' comments on an explicitly partisan football podcast and coming to your own conclusions based on a completely superficial reading.
Quote from: Hat FM on January 05, 2022, 03:59:43 PMsadly arsenal's billionaire owner knows better than to spend his own cash but we shouldn't really turn this into a football thread. tbf its just the kind of rant that the tuesday club's alan davies, rather than QI's alan davies, is known for and part of what made the podcast popular. I think he is just fed up withthe man city situation as an arsenal fan.
Quote from: KennyMonster on January 10, 2022, 10:29:36 AMIs this actually true that NO money is invested or is it just less than others?I've been told that my club (Norwich) are the only self funded club in the top 2 divisions.i.e. we don't have money being pumped in from other sources (i.e. outside tickets, advertising, sponsorship and TV revenue).
Quote from: Hat FM on January 10, 2022, 11:04:40 AMcomparing man city spending more than £1bn to salford is quite amusing. Even comparing them to Blackburn is although things were different back then and Jack Walker's financial influence was seen as a bit of a novelty at the time.
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on January 10, 2022, 08:58:13 AMHe absolutely wouldn't, he would have no problem if it was Arsenal getting funded and winning everything. And he certainly wouldn't be moaning if it was an English billionaire doing it.No, I used to be a football fan so I know exactly what he's talking about. His problem isn't the money, it's where it's coming from. English football fans and lazy xenophobia go hand-in-hand.If there is a massive subtext on multiple points I'm not getting, can you share what they are?
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on January 10, 2022, 09:52:17 PMStart a new thread, by all means, because none of that sounds like 'massive subtext', it just sounds like you're saying it was a type of football fan talking to other football fan types. Which kind of backs up the 'lazy xenophobia' point.
