Carlos Cash: the gift we just keep on having to give

David Sullivan's comments in the match programme for the Villa game reminded us of the financial burden that we continue to shoulder as the Blades keep bleeding us for their compensation award from the Tevez affair. The figures revealed sit uncomfortably beside the outrageous monies that were linked to the Andy Carroll deal and leave one wondering what's really going on financially behind the scenes. There can be no doubting that the two Davids have brought much needed financial astuteness to the club but sometimes it seems impossible to make sense of all the speculation about transfer bids etc. On a lighter note, the Blades remarkable lack of success since they were awarded the 24 million emphasises that money alone does not guarantee success - one would have expected that sort of cash to make a huge difference in League one.
