Can Kuwaiti cash revive football's fallen giant?

"Financial interest from the Middle East has fallen into two camps: the genuine and the fantasists," Middle Eastern football expert James Montague told CNN.
"You have on one hand the likes of Sheikh Mansour who bought Manchester City, put his money where his mouth is and within four years has transformed the club from also-rans into title winners. They are now feared across Europe.

"On the other you have a string of failed takeovers from those hoping Middle Eastern money could be some kind of panacea. Or in the case of Portsmouth were taken over by the UAE's Sulaiman al Fahim and eventually became the first Premier League club to go into administration.
"This takeover appears to fall in to the former category, largely because they have a successful track record in domestic football. Remember, Manchester City wasn't the first club Sheikh Mansour bankrolled. His first love is the Abu Dhabi-based club Al Jazira. Likewise the Hasawi family have turned Kuwaiti club Qadisa into a local regional powerhouse."
While Portsmouth's only English titles date back to 1949-50, Forest won the old first division championship relatively recently in 1978 and then shocked the football world by lifting Europe's top club trophy in the following two seasons.

Well, have we seen loads a money?

Let some go, replaced with potentially better, and more experienced?

If the Kuwaitis are loaded, personally they have done a great job.

It seems they have involved a lot of FOOTBALL thought in all processes.

Viva Kuwaiti! farao

I like the way they have approached it, money to spend but not wasteful on over egoed has beens.

Money in for Gunter and others off the wage bill with a few more to leave probably means the in's and out's balance themselves up and we have a much better squad
