    Rubbish about not spending...

    Posted by Dave on 22/2/2024, 8:05:40

    The idiots who posted on my comment last night dont get we have moved into the big league..never said we have to spend all the 100 million but we could and should have been a bit more ambitious in January. We all knew the cover for Barkley or Lokonga wasnt their with Nakamba out. Plus uptop to with no cover for Eli or Carlton. Woodrow and Pelly are great servants but are nowhere near the level.required. We could have found better in the championship or Europe without going to mad but the board thought they were being clever with this "galvanised" team bollocks. Unfortunately, we are now seeing what happens with the injuries plus teams are getting clued up on how to deal with Barkley better. Hoping Eli and Lokongo are back for Saturday! Yes we can still do it but with a little more ambition we could have gave ourselves a much better chance. We are in the prem now. Not the bloody conference and should have acted like it!

        Reading your post it sounds like you know precisely where the club is in terms of balancing the spend on players against allocating funds for building of PC.

          Too many in squad not fit or of the quality..one that was fit Giles we gave away..brought in a replacement who is not match fit..Taylor scored in a champ play off final. we gave him out..recruitment seemed to be with not staying in the league

            Taylor scored in a champ play off final

            Are you referring to scoring a penalty or a disallowed goal?

                    Who's to blame?

                    I'd go for either of Giles or Doughty.

                    Giles because he didn't seem to have the brain/ability/attitude to improve the defensive side of his game.

                    Doughty because the improvement he showed was phenomenal, pushing Giles further back down the pecking order.

                    Oh, I believe we had a system/tactics change too

                      Thanks for that...no i wasnt their unlike the majority of our fans! You do realise only 2500 odd were their. So based on the playoffs, the other 38000 odd arent fans!

                      I dont get people on here, if you dare to have a opinion they dont agree with or arent all happy clappy you get deemed as not a true fan....

                      2020, Rob and the team have done and are doing a superb job. All my point was is that I feel we missed a trick not addressing the lack of cover. And this stupid comment of who we should sign is dsft. We managed to find players before scoouting lower leagues and now europe so why couldnt we have done this in Jan.

                          "We're in the big league now"

                          Don't you think that makes it just a tad harder finding players that are of a PL standard from the "lower leagues". Players that can come straight into the group and have a positive impact. Because they'd pretty much have to do that.

                            They are about in the lower leagues, Chong is a good example.

                              Yes and has taken his time to break into our first team, not even being a first choice in the Championship, and cost millions (transfer fee, signing fees, agent fees, wages, bonuses).

                                We will be getting approximately £200mil over the next 3 seasons. We have spent approximately 20mil on new players. You figure it out.

                                  I have figured it out. As far as is possible.

                                  If you think we've only spent 20 million, you haven't.

                                    First of all I said appox 20 mil. Yes, with wages etc it could be 30 mil.
                                    That's still a massive difference from 200 mil.

                                      You think our wage bill is 10 million? You think there were no signing on fees, agents fees etc? The existing players aren't on improved terms?

                                      You don't realise we have taken on other extra staff in the other departments?

                                      You think we didn't spend 13-14 million on the ground?

                                      You didn't notice those rather substantial promotion bonuses in last year's accounts? Where do you think they were budgeted from?

                                      You don't think we are spending a rather big chunk of cash on Power Court?

                                      You don't think that the money required to compete in the PL and host games is more?

                                      And so on and so on . . .

                                        Not to mention that the £200 million, or whatever the amount is, doesn't just appear in one lump sum.

                                        We could get a loan from Macquarie or similar against future income of course. What could possibly go wrong with that?

                                          We don't get 200 million, either.

                                          What these plebs fail to even want to understand is that January is an impossible time to sign players. The only ones available are not wanted by other clubs, aren't good enough or you have to spend double the going rate.

                                          Also, wages, we're in a precarious situation where we have no idea which division we'll be in. I've no idea how possible it is to structure wages with a caveat that if we go down they're dramatically reduced or the player is released. And nor does anyone on here.

                                          It's laughable that losing to Liverpool at Anfield has been the trigger for these pillocks to have a trantrum.

                                            Yeah because players we have signed in January before have been terrible...especially ones like that Eli fellow...pleb!

                                              And Elijah was signed as a player for the future who we had been tracking for a while. However he

                                              I'd imagine we have a number we have been tracking, and I'm guessing deals couldn't be done. Do you not think there's a reason it was the quietest January window in years?

                                              The fact that you constantly question and slag off the best recruitment team in the country shows how little you know and dismissive you are of how we have achieved what we've achieved.

                                                Thankfully you included the part "over 3 seasons", otherwise some people may have thought we got the lot in a lump sum when we were promoted

                                              To be fair, transfer fees don't all come out in one lump sum. Neither do wages, building costs etc etc

                                      Yep. Wasn't sure about him at first but he's come on loads. Very impressed with him the last 2 ganes especially. It's taken time to adjust, like it would the vast majority of players that make that step up. Lockyer touched on that in one of his interviews. Yet some of the simpletons on here clearly know better than our captain.....

                                        Yes, but to be fair Dave's football experience is probably decades of listening to the likes of Alan Shearer on MOTD. So he knows a thing or two . . .

                                        As for Chong I think he really adds some genuine pace to our attacks when he comes on things seem to speed up. And I wasn't sure at first either.

                                          When Ogbene was top of the PL speed charts, Chong was on thr list in something like 7th or 8th.

                                          Glad to see him making an impact now, he was quality against us in that Birmingham game

                                            Yep. He was alot stronger in the tackle last 2 games aswell. At the start of the season he was far too lightweight and getting knocked off the ball easily.

                                              I think he has learnt from the Brentford game that going down easily doesnít always win you fouls ( well not Luton players anyway).He has done well last couple of games.
                                              Noticed we won the booking score again comfortably last night with less fouls againÖ.

                                                Yes, I think he might just have a future in the game

                                      So Dave I asked who you have identified we could have replaced Pelly and Woodrow with in January that were affordable, better, willing to come.

                                      I don't think it is missing a trick I think it is difficulty in finding the right players that fit our work ethic and will add to our group.

                                        How do you know that the club didn't scout the lower leagues for players they may well have.
                                        The January window is always hard to find decent players.
                                        We need players that are ready for the Premier to
                                        cover the injuries, they are not readily available.

                                        Have a day off ffs.
                                        Anyone following this club for any amount of time knows that we were never going to throw money at staying up.
                                        Pretty much everyone I spoke to after the play offs and pre season said " let's take the money and run"
                                        I am just happy we are here, we have no God given right to be so and we have none that we should stay.

                                        The future of this club is the most important thing, we very nearly didn't have one until 2020 came along.

                                        Stop your bleeting and get behind a club that is giving everything it's got.

                                            It was sadly predictable that we'd get this sort of thing - for all that everyone said they were fully on board with the strategy, you knew it'd only take the merest hint of a relegation fight for some to start demanding a show of ambition.

                                            This time last year he was probably bemoaning that the lack of ambition in the transfer window would (not could, would) cost us promotion. It was strange how few people owned up to that at the end of the season.

                                            Hardly have to throw money though. Just talking about a couple more signings . Surely would have been more profitable to do that and stay up than go down and knock about in the lower leagues for years to come.
                                            Like you say we had no god given right to be here but we are so why didnít the board make sure that we stayed.

                                              Burnley spent a 100 million on players . . .

                                              Just stop equating an extra couple of low cost signings with making such a big difference and it becomes obvious.

                                                How much should we have spent on these players that of premier quality?
                                                And which ones were available in the January window?

                                                  The only thing I'm slightly confused is why they sent the two strikers back on loan

                                                    Not to mention we only had two spare slots available, unless we were to start de-registering players or moving players out.

                                                    If it's the former, you still have to pay them, though of course with our magic money tree none of that is a problem.

                                                              Perhaps the professional people at the club think we have enough to stay up. Rob Edwards does - Gary Sweet does.
