Its better to try to win at all costs rather than lose to make the owner rich.We've become a "Win at all costs" mentality.... it's not our fault, we're merely the Western Idiots who have fallen in love with the Western Capitalist dream that money buys happiness.... more fool us!
and the irony is, it takes some Saudi/Middle-Eastern Sheikh to show us what TRUE HAPPINESS IS... buy your success.... that's happiness! and now we belittle it... and yet it's all we ever dreamed of!
Western Capitalist greed mentality.... fuelled by Middle Eastern Oil money wealth to satisfy that greed .,...
only thing is, you've gotta strike Gold/Oil first!
It's a fool's conundrum!
Pretty much this . Most of high level football is corrupt & moralistically bankrupt anyway.A few short years ago, I'd have been firmly in the "no' camp. Now, I'd accept it, albeit with a heavy heart.
The whole game is awash with wealth of questionable origin and it's pure doublethink, in my view, to criticise clubs that are funded in this way whilst at the same time insisting they pay us inflated fees for our players.
It was just a few months ago we were all demanding City pay £150m for Kane. Using their money to fund a rebuild isn't really that different in principle to having a similar type of owner.
