Does any fan really think that at this moment that the Smiffs are already planning to spend £60m to £80m on 5 or 6 Prem quality players to keep us in the Prem .... because that is the minimum that will be required
£16.9m = £8m Gibson + £6.2m GI. + £2.7m Q funded from the sale
of Godfrey and Lewis
£2m to cover the costs of Skipp in the Prem for a season
£35m from the sale of AIRons to be recycled into a new RB, RCB (with
pace), another DM/CM and a CAM.
£10m from Prem revenues to help buy the 4 mentioned just above
The owners dont have to fund anything and can then say they gave it a go!
If only we had owners who could lend the club £50m to £100m to buy some good players we could build a team without having to lose our good young players.
