What side of Manchester will be our future Rivals? Has the power swing Finally Begun(Or is it finally evident at last)? OK he's no leaving anymore but still read on!

Toni Pulis on Power:


Rooney's decision has caused shockwaves throughout the football world but Pulis, whose team entertain United on Sunday, insists the front man's comments are no surprise as players begin to grow more powerful at top clubs.

"I just think it is because it's probably one of the greatest players we have got at the moment and he is at one of the greatest clubs in the world," he said.

"But it happens everywhere, and it has happened everywhere for many years.

"Players have become more powerful over a period and a lot of the time, they dictate what is happening."

Pulis also feels the movement of high-profile players is inevitable given the emergence of clubs such as Manchester Cityspacer.gif in the transfer market.

"You've only got to look at what has happened at other clubs," he added.

"Manchester City have come into the game now, they are a big player, a massive player.

"When Chelseaspacer.gif got taken over by Roman Abramovich, there were loads of players going to Chelsea that you would never have imagined going there.

"It happens, and the big shock for everybody is just because it's Wayne and because of which club he is at.

"This has been going for years - I don't think this is the first case where a player has come in and said he wants to move for whatever reason. Money is power, it's always been the same."

He added: "Manchester City were taken over and they have signed players that other clubs didn't want to release - look at the (Joleon) Lescott situation. Evertonspacer.gif did not want to release Lescott."


Have United felt the first sting of being completely out POWERED because they just aren't the best anymore?

Don't think you can say anyone other than City at the moment, but if Ferguson or Wenger decide to spend big what's to stop either United or Arsenal knocking us off our perch?

McEachran, Bruma, Van Aanholt, Kakuta, Borini, Sturridge :whistling:...

Or ofcourse Roman spending big too!
