Money Doesn't Always Talk - Ha!

In an unprecedented attempt to buy their way back to the top of club football in Europe by winning the Champion’s League, last summer Real Madrid spent $340 million in transfer fees for new star players. The result:

This week they were eliminated in the round of 16 by Lyon. Ha! Couldn’t even buy themselves into the quarterfinals.

In England, last year Manchester City was taken over by a group from Abu Dhabi. They too spent an obscene amount of money, well over $150 million, to buy their way to the top of the English Premier League. With 11 games left to play they are in 5th place. When the season is over they may or may not end up in the top four, but they won’t be close to the top teams. Ha!

How sweet it is.
