As opposed to Man United "fans" calling him a rapist and sex offender for 7 years and suddenly love him, I'm hardly being hypocritical. I'm only calling him that cause he chose to take a swipe at Arsenal and run rather than staying and trying to help change things.
The way I see it, the players who leave their clubs for clubs like City, United and Chelsea don't want to work hard for their success. Going to United makes it a little more believable when players say they want to win trophies(a little less believable when they get paid 200k in order to win trophies). It's because these clubs have cash out of their owners ass to spend makes it difficult for teams to really improve. When teams want to buy decent players and they offer a honest price, a team like City or Chelsea comes in with a ridiculous offer and the club takes it, it's more or less the selling club that's at fault because they're accepting this stupid offers. And then there's the wages these teams pay is even dumber. For example, Nasri didn't deserved that pay he got when he signed with City, I'll admit he's been a bit more impressive so far(as much as I despise to say it).
Wages is the real thing that's destroying soccer, players see someone that's probably as good if not worst than them is getting paid more than him and they go and say they want more money, and when clubs like Arsenal are getting these demands for wage raises and they won't bite then the players start to spread slander about the club and try and force moves to clubs that will pay them outrageous wages. Clubs need to start telling these players "you will get paid what we pay you and if you don't like it there's the bench" or either the FA and other countries football governing bodies or even UEFA need to implement wage caps otherwise all the European leagues are gonna end up like La Liga where it's always seems to be a 2 horse race and the only interesting race is for 3rd and relegation.
(I don't know how I went from talking about RvP to talking about wages and wage caps)
