intelligent Milan saving money... after Beckham, Ibra?

MILAN - Football is crazy. Also the people who love it, we realize the players receive too much money, not to mention the cost of transfers, and sometimes they're even flops. Meanwhile, outside in the real world, we have to face a big world crisis, unemployment, underpaid jobs, etc.
Some time ago Ac Milan were also spending a lot of money, as all the big teams, to buy great champions. Lately, after becoming the best team in history in December 2007, something changed, as though they "were happy with that" (Noel: am I happy with that? No I'm not! I want moooore! :)
They didn't win anything since then, that is more than 2 years, and the fans went crazy because we had the habit to win. And meanwhile the 2nd team of Milan were winning everything. In fact, if Milan fans read my "intelligent Milan saving money" they would say: what?! no no, buy buy, Berlusconi sell sell the team, etc. Yea, to WHO? Milan cost a lot, and a sheikh would rather buy a team in England, because spending in Italian football now it's like throwing away money, much to spend, few to receive.
Now the fans are asking Berlusconi again to buy a big name, but it's difficult, as he's also the Prime Minister and wouldn't have a good impression if spending much money.
Milan started to save money in every way, not buying many players, diminishing wages, etc. towards a football "with a brain". Berlusconi sold Kakà and the fans went double crazy. Then at Real he was a flop and now always injured, so Berlusconi was right again. The same I was saying at those times: sell Kakà. Having seen what has been, he should have joined City (he could also get more money), not Real where he's one of many and now nobody wants to buy him.
And almost at the end of the last season Milan were even fighting to win the championship against the big-spending Inter Milan, who usually win because they spend a lot.
After Beckham coming to Milan on loan, because so he could to play again for England, now Spanish tabloids are saying again there's a chance for Ibrahimovic (this is one with a really VERY big nose :) to come back to Milan (but no Inter), on loan, because Barcelona had too much to spend, and he's not gonna play often (they also bought Villa) so his value would diminish (his tranfer now would cost a crazy 60 millions). His goals in Spain were not so important, and Barcelona have good relations to Milan, so they're gonna talk about this on 25 August when they play a friendly. They could pay half and half for his high wages. He usually doesn't score much in Champions League, but he's winning championships wherever he goes since 2004, scoring a lot of goals (Inter were Ibra-dependent). But his story with Inter ended badly, he told the fans to shut the fuck up, the same Balotelli did.
I'm not saying Manchester City are stupid because as Real Madrid they spend so much money as no one else, it's a different case: Man City want to become a big team, and as they're the richest, ones they can spend (for now... until the sheikh will get tired of football). Real are a bit stupid 'cause they spent a huge quantity of money thanks to the banks, leaving debts there: the worst choice, they'll regret that, in worst times, if, as so far, they're not winning anything.
It's not a good day to write this post against spending money, as tomorrow (Friday 13.........) Balotelli is officially becoming a Man City blue, but I do it to go against the bad luck of this day.
Tomorrow night there's also the usual summer challenge with the 3 biggest Italian teams, Milan, Juventus and Inter.
