The crazy world of modern money football

I'm saddened by the transfer fees currently, I just don't get it, even if I apply logic, business sense and an element of apathy. I am heartened by seeing our kids come through but if we get up this year, then it all gets moronic?!

In today's money, how much would Micah Richards of ten years ago have been worth?

When a club is in the PL that has a capacity less than 11,500 but is able to offer £25m for a player ..... all gone wrong

It can't last. Sky are already struggling, with droves leaving. Without the TV money, the whole pyramid comes down.

The sooner it happens, the better to me. It really does disgust me.

I was reading the other day about how Sky's demise in football is (relatively) fast-approaching as they are pricing themselves out of the market, but the concern is that the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime etc might step in to fill the void, including UK football in their portfolio, at obviously reduced prices to the consumer (used to be called 'fans' I think).

So for your £9 per month Netflix, or £80 a year Amazon Prime, you'd get the current Sky offering, near enough. They would still pay big money to the Premier League & EFL, possibly bigger than now, with the expected increase in subscribers footing the bill.

So we may never see the end of this crazy money. Who knows?

When Johnny Evans fetches £23m you know we have reached the end of days .
The sooner Sky die the better .

Would love it if Sky failed. Can't see it though. Too many people still blindly pay their ridiculous prices.
Imagine the fire sale though once teams realize they can no longer afford their over paid "stars".
