Tomkins og Chelsea

Jamie Carragher langar a vinna rvalsdeildina me Liverpool, en Paul Tomkins sr a ekki gerast nstunni. njasta pistli snum - Chelsea: Kililng Football For Us All - fjallar hann um a hvernig Chelsea, me au snum og vldum, eru a eyileggja deildarkeppnina Englandi. Hann segir meal annars etta:

“They have it all. Money, talent and a prime location to entice the world’s best. They have a collection of brilliant footballers, marshalled by a remarkable manager.

How can football ever be a fair competition with such radical financial disparity? Plenty of clubs have had outside investment in the past, but it’s been of a smaller nature, and a temporary boost. As much as 100m might buy you some good players, and maybe even the occasional trinket, but not sustainable success. Unlimited money buys you a chance at unlimited success.

Other ‘rich’ clubs have built their wealth on the back of success on the pitch, and a broad fan base. It’s been assembled over a period of time. Football has never seen anything like Abramovich’s Chelsea before.”

Einmitt. Li eins og Real Madrd, manchester united og AC Milan eru rk af v a au hafa rka sgu, af v a au byggja veldi sitt velgengni. Chelsea hafa ekkert slkt, eir keyptu lottmia og duttu lukkupottinn. Tomkins btir vi:

“Chelsea are in the envious position of being able to pay tens of millions for a player and happily sell him twelve months later for a massive loss if a better player comes along, or the first one fails. It simply makes no difference.

Liverpool, Arsenal, even Manchester United, have to justify any significant outlay; just one expensive mistake in the transfer market can lead to long-term problems. I’m sure Alex Ferguson will eternally regret not spending the 28m on Seba Veron in a more effective manner.

Since Abramovich arrived in 2003 Chelsea have spent approaching 300m on transfers. In return they have recouped a incredibly small percentage from sales. Again, it makes little difference to them. Abramovich spending 10m is like you or I spending 10 on a CD, and if we don’t like it, we’ll just write it off as a mildly inconvenient loss. It might irk us, but it won’t break us.

Premiership clubs need to be careful, prudent; Chelsea do not. They could go out and buy a whole new 300m team in January if they wished. They have that massive safety net. Money doesn’t buy success; but unlimited money makes it far, far easier to succeed.

It’s not bitterness or sour grapes at Chelsea’s success. It’s just that, in my eyes, it’s hollow success because of the grotesque expenditure that ensured it.”

Nkvmlega. Er a einhver tilviljun a umra um launaak ensku rvalsdeildina s a n hmarki n, egar Chelsea eru a gera samkeppnina a engu me peningaafli snu? Held ekki.

San klrar Tomkins greinina me skemmtilegri hugleiingu um a a bikarkeppnirnar muni f meira vgi eftir v sem yfirburir Chelsea deildinni aukast - ar sem eir geti aldrei veri vissir um sigur bikarkeppnum, ar er bara einn leikur sem rur rslitum. a gildir jafnt um Evrpukeppnirnar og ensku bikarana, annig a g hugsa a vi eigum a lta etta sem g rk fyrir v a vi sum lklegri til a sl Chelsea vi Evrpu - aftur - en a vi frum a yfirtaka deildinni vetur.

Allavega, g mli me a menn lesi essa grein. Tomkins er frbr penni og kemur hr enn og aftur me arfar plingar - hfum vi eitthva betra a gera en a lesa gapistla hans svona mikilli frttaurr eins og virist rkja essa vikuna?
