    Lost. all for the sake of £10-£15k a week. Small potatoes nowadays of course.

    hmmm, Liverpool are considered challengers for the League and also a shoe in for a CL place..... we are struggling to get top 4, have a much weaker squad and look a long way off from where they are at the moment

    Having that kind of money would put us back in that league. It's a very simple equation. City weren't in that league either.

    No, that's very much on topic. Pre-Wenger, Cole is precisely the sort of player who'd have skippered the side for a decade before having a statue raised in his honour outside the ground.

    It would have to be the ground that Wenger built, of course, so I guess it's complicated

    Dunno. You could argue that, like Kenny Sansom, he was a great player, but had the wrong personality for leadership.
