Kaka to Manchester City will change football forever, but so what?

People are generally split into two groups when it comes to Kaka’s move to Manchester City.

Group 1 thinks it’s great to see the best talent in the Premier League.

Group 2 thinks it’s the end of football as we know it.

As usual when people are split into two groups, they’re both right.

Ending football as we know it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad thing. Chelsea changed football as we know it, but so did Manchester United under Sir Alex and Arsenal when they went unbeaten. Spurs change football as we know it on a daily basis by making clown-like decisions that no one can fathom.

Football is constantly changing, the only constant is that fact that it always adapts and continues to grow. If Kaka goes to City then it will open the floodgates for other world class players to join and I have no doubt that they will build a super team.

There will, however, always be plenty of players to go around and just as Chelsea and ‘Galaticos’ era Real Madrid found – having a team of superstars only puts a giant freakin’ target on your back where every club, big and small, sacrifices everything to get one over on you.

Kaka is a great player. Will he be a great player when he has to go away to Stoke in freezing weather and fight against the muscular beasts that Tony Pulis calls a football team? Somehow I doubt it. Robinho already can’t be assed, with the vast majority of his goals coming at home.

I’m into football for the entertainment, because I have long realised that my dreams of glory for the club I support will never be realised. Therefore it’s like TV to me, the more drama and tension the better. And right now City are delivering on all fronts.
