£10m is a bit of a disappointing fee, if not that surprising. Ultimately it's another player who wouldn't have got any games a la Grujic so pocket it and spend it well.

 

We are getting linked with so many midfielders recently it's hard to know which ones are the favourite, if any.

I wonder if this we lead to a signing from us or if Phillips & Shaq need to depart first.

Wouldn't be shocked if there's a 10% sell on fee to make up the difference in what we wanted and what they paid

 

Sell on clauses make quite a bit of sense in the current climate.

Hold your horses, we still need another 5ml to cover the Konate transfer. And don't forget Thiago was ginis replacement

To be fair, we’ve never recouped the Fabinho & Keita money. 
 

But, you’know, sell to buy and all that.

This man gets it. 

 

Good thing is when we sell Phillips it should pay for this Newcastle youth player to come in.

Yeah, but we made a £120m loss after 2 years of profit. Which were in turn, after 10 years of losses. 
 

But anyway, facts are irrelevant really.

I only watch about the Frankfurt player, but that’s what I think we’re trying to do with Ox.

Both of them will need to be sold before we buy anyone for sure.

Klopps our golden goose I just dont see how any side could compete against the wealth of City Chelsea and United over the long term. They can fail and feel no financial repercussions.

You really want to go down the net spend route?

That’s up to you and if you want it argue with facts, because if we stick to the facts,  I’m right. 
 

I’ll take a head start - Coutinho buying VVD & Alisson doesn’t account for the above 2 players or Shaqiri. 

 

Also, our sales last summer don’t match what we paid for Jota, Thiago & Tsmiskas. There is at least a c.£20m gap. 
 

But, anyhoo, if you want to take this further, be my guest.

Less than £25m a year under the owners, you think that’s great - good for you.

So we have a spent more than we’ve sold, while winning the fucking lot?

 

Our outlay to income was higher when we were less successful earlier in FSG’s ownership.

 

I view transfers like I view my salary. Would I like more? Of course. Can I make the most out of what I have? Yes.

We’ve won the big two and the league cup. 

 

I’d have liked to see us kick on after winning the big two, invest from a position of strength.

 

I’d like to continue winning trophies rather than just finishing top 4. 
 

But our owners wanted to spend as little as possible and are now leaking that wages are ‘spiralling out of control’ because they had to pay the incentive contracts they insist on.

Does anyone actually invest from a position of strength? People keep saying this as if it's some genius and common concept, yet I'm pretty sure clubs tend to invest more at the beginning of a manager's time or when they're shit and falling behind.
