Good to know, glad that you understand how things work in the real world as opposed to the fairy tale world of football.

However, you appear to be under the impression that it's all about money, and the clubs which spend the most achieve the most.

It ain't necessarily so, take last seasons Championship for instance.

Only one of the top 11 big spending clubs in the Championship last season went up.

Newcastle United who were the second biggest spender after Villa.

Aston Villa spent the most, 72 Million and finished 13th, unlucky for them.

Huddersfield on the other hand spent 3.6 Million the seventeenth least in the division and are now in the Premier Division.

So Villa spent exactly twenty times more than Huddersfield and still failed.

Money is important obviously but a good manager and a little bit of luck is better.

That's the full table of information if you're interested. It's from a Blades forum so please ignore the infantile comment at the start, I'm a Blade but too old to go along with that nonsense.

It makes interesting reading, I believe that the Wednesday figure does not contain the fee for Rhodes as he was a loan at that time.

No the Baseball Ground has long gone and as for 'us', would they be the recent newcomers to the Championship ? To further that, there's no Ayresome Park, Boothferry Park, Roker Park and thankfully, no Cold Blow Lane . Yes I perhaps might be a little daft !

Remember they've been out of the top leagues for years.

The " my dad's bigger than your dad " never ending argument between Sheffield football supporters is both amusing and somewhat pathetic at the same time.

Does anyone imagine that the two Manchester clubs or two Liverpool clubs go on like this?

They don't have to, because all four of them have bigger fish to fry.

If there was ever an argument best described as 'Two bald men arguing over possession of a comb' Sheffield footballs " We're better than you " is that argument.
