Hopefully regular viewers of this site will realise that we not only comment on all things Huddersfield Town but also all things The beautiful game.

Here are some transfer stats

Most Expensive Player Transfers in English Football – up to August 2006

Figures are up to Aug 2006

You may notice that only two clubs feature in the transfers to stats
Man Utd, And Chelsea.

Who are 1st and 2nd in the league, again, what a coincidence.

No money doesn’t matter at all does it !!!

  • As a Chelsea fan I don?t entirely disagree, but would say that money is useless without good management. However, since the formation of the PL money has become essential to success. Only Arsenal have bucked the trend here and it?s not like they are paupers who never spend a penny or two on a player (TH 12m, Reyes 10m, Adebeyor 7m, Walcott 12m etc). Those who have money can buy success and continued entry into the CL which only perpetuates the situation.
