Yours for £1m. Need to make room for Dean Saunders
- May 24, 2007
I often think about this.If that was true why would the club have bothered to go so far with the Fekir deal? Maybe it was just one big ruse orchestrated by the owners to fool the fans into thinking they were willing to spend that much money?
I get the impression you'd be happier if we bought the exact same players but added an extra 10 million on to each of their price tags.
Imagine if we bought Robertson for £30m, Trent for £20m, Shaqiri for £25, Gomez for £20m, and Salah for £60m - prices much more realistic in view of how they’ve contributed. No-one would be complaining about the spending then, and we’d have exactly the same squad.
At some point we have to accept we’re just bitching at the club for having a bit of financial savvy.
