I think clubs are increasingly paranoid about keeping up with each other which just further fuels big money being spent. But I no longer think the billionaire owners are the root cause – they exacerbate the situation I think, but I think we the fans along with the culture are the root of the problem, i.e. we are the ones demanding more money to be spent to try and get one up on our rivals. Fans bemoan billionaire owners but deep down they just want their own one. As I’ve said before, I think we treat football far too seriously than it deserves. This also fuels much of the hatred you see on the stands now as teams have to win at all costs. Salary caps will just give off the feeling we’re doing something about it, but such things don’t get to the root of the problem, which lies at our door. So I think there’s too much inertia in that direction for things to change now.
