It'll All Come To A Sticky End
Is it my imagination, or is there an increasing polarisation between clubs in the football league? There are those seeking to grow at a pace in line with their means, such as Blackpool, Aston Villa and Arsenal. Those who have Sugar Daddies and so disconnected from the real world. And teams which see borrowing on the promise of future return as the road to success, such as Manchester United, Portsmouth and Liverpool?
Are the teams working to the more modest approach being over-cautious and risk averse?
What happens when the Sugar Daddies move on?
And are the gamblers simply reckless and heading for a fall?
It makes me think of three people sitting opposite each other.
One is sucking an old fashioned toffee.
One is filling their mouth with sweets.
And the third is blowing a massive bubble gum bubble.
Bigger and bigger and bigger.
