A must read

There's nothing quite like the warm comfort of reading something you agree with. So check our Martin Samuel in the Daily Mail today.

Money quote:
Yet still a puritanical determination to resist pleasure continues. We have become spoiled by our easy access to greatness, by the fact we can turn on the television and view the finest players from around Europe every week. We have forgotten what a thrill, what a privilege it is to then see those same players in the flesh.

If Kaka comes to Manchester, English football will need only Lionel Messi for the full set. This is a unique moment in the history of our game and how stereotypical of us to find a reason to carp. Kaka, Ronaldo and Fernando Torres may be coming to town. Oh, woe.

Random thought: for £107 mil, couldn't we just buy Blackburn, lock, stock and barrel, and then just take RSC?
