Three points against the mighty Hull, and the transfer rumour mill rolls on. I particularly enjoyed a couple of recent Kaka quotes that I thought I'd share with you. The most recent quotes reveal Kaka's admiration for Arsenal and Manu:
“Arsenal and Manchester United are different from the other English teams. They play a bit more and are more open. "
One has to say that moving to Man City for money would be a foolish move for Kaka to make. The remarkable change of morals of Man City fans is also something that amuses me, one minute they were criticising Manu for buying success, not they claim everyone is just jealous of their newly found wealth, you can't have it both ways City fans. The other great quote concerns the mercenary Robinho:
"Ricky [i.e. Kaka] would like a strong side. He would never do something like Robinho, who, just to earn more, contented himself with a solution that was not a winning one."
This one came from Kaka's agent and fair play to him for it. I really think that it nicely demonstrates the problems football clubs can come into if they start throwing the cash around willy nilly. The best players who are motivated by more than money are hard to attract, however the money grabbing mercenaries will be drawn to you as bears to honey. It is therefore very easily to fill one's side with lazy unmotivated mercenaries who will not win you a thing.
Hence the moral of the story is beware of splashing the cash, never let people know if you have money to spend, while if you are prepared to miss out on the occasional signing for financial reasons then it may well serve you well in the long term as you will avoid the money grabbing mercenaries.
