And what is the soul of the club? I mean, what is the difference between Abramovich and Lendoiro? (on a lower scale)_Daan_ said:but at the same time I fear this could ruing the soul of the club, what the club stands for...
Once Lendoiro leaves what will he leave appart from his name, millions in wage bills, and the titles during his period? Has he actually work to secure a future for the team? Well, the answer is here, he´s looking everywhere to find someone to buy the team because if not.... the ampliation of capital isn´t working, something that happens when you "create" a giant with mud feet. Has he worked with "youth training facilities"? search in the squad and you´ll see Fran as the only galician, and he´s retiring this season...Mathias04 said:It's pretty sick if you ask me,a club like Deportivo shouldn't be sold, they have made history by buying and producing young players or unknown players, not to mention great history with the NT by prodcing great players for Spain too...
I can see if he helps out clubs in huge debt, (like historic clubs in South America), and sets up youth training facilities and leaves the club with something for the future, not just the name Abramovich and millions in wage bills..
Well for me it all comes down to whether or not I want to support a Real Madrid(Or Chelsea in this case) type of team. While it has it's obvious good sides I always hated the richest teams that just bought anyone and eventually bought their success. For me Deportivo is club that does not do that, well not on the same scale as Madrid anyways. We do the best with the little that we have and that's something that is really remarkable imo. And that's also what we're known for.Txupa said:And what is the soul of the club? I mean, what is the difference between Abramovich and Lendoiro? (on a lower scale)
Probably not, but wouldnt UEFA object to him doing this since he also owns CSKA Moscow.Here's a question: if Abramovich does buy Deportivo and invests in them in a similar way as he did in Chelsea, would Deportivo become as popular as Chelsea?
I think that is the case. I haven't read it officially, but according to what I've read here, no more than two teams who are owned by the same individual can compete in European competition together. Anyway, my question was hypothetical.::Ambis:: said:Probably not, but wouldnt UEFA object to him doing this since he also owns CSKA Moscow.
