    But it’s clear because he is significantly better than ANY CM we have. Good on the ball, good going forwards, not too bad defensively either. A proper box to box player which we don’t have, and need.
    Sorry quitter but if you think that post is trying to start an argument then you are a bit of a touchy boy.
    the post you make out is only realy your blinkered opinion nithing more
    He is champoinship player (currently) he could be good in the PL but its not a given and its not clear he is better than ours untill he has proved it, so calm down knub nuts

    My advice just ignore both of his trolling accounts.

    on Romaine Sawyers he will go up with WBA this season. He wouldn't swap for us now
    The big Troll triggered, your ignore set up is clearly not working is it ? probably a lie like you betting bull shyte

    It was interesting to see a Watford, a club I’ve always considered to be a small premier league club/middle sized championship club were able to sign a player for £30m this summer and have spent £90m more than they’ve made from sales in the last five years whilst we had to sell to buy players this summer and all the ones before that.

    Watford still had to sell someone for 18m in order to be able to bring in Sarr.
    Saints bought £52m, sold 24m this season

    What about the previous couple of seasons regarding Saints?

    Gabbiadini £12m, Austin £4m, Gallagher £5m, target £17m is a lot more than £24m pal.

    we bought Adams £16m, djenepo £15m, Ings came out of last seasons budget so actually £38m earnt and £31m spent.

    This year Watford spent £36m and sold £19m

    How do you explain Watford have spent £90m more than they’ve sold over the last 5 years whilst we’ve made a profit?

    We don't buy success, we breed it.

    Well you included 15/16, their first season up wasn’t it?when they accrued 66m of that. Most teams do that, accessing tv money whilst their wage bills probably are lower.

    Then there’s the fact their wage bill is probably lower than ours.
    Then there’s the fact they aren’t owned by GAO.

    We pay more in wages. Its not all about transfer fees

    [QUOTE=stevy777_x;2780855]We pay more in wages. Its not all about transfer fees[/

    Interesting theory. Don’t we always say that lots of players are ruled out due to wages. So Do we pay more wages than Bournemouth who have a £133m spend or West Ham who
    Have a £155m spend or Leicester who have a £112’ positive spend in the same period we’ve made a profit yet still have to sell to buy?

    No one has ever been able to explain why we have to sell players to buy them, the only club that has to do this. It's incredible, our wage bill is high but 10th out of premier league clubs but lower than Crystal Palace £56m net spend) Leicester (£112m Net spend) and only slightly more than Bournemouth (£133m net spend) West Ham (£155m net spend) and Newcastle (£107m). Agents fess, bonuses and NI contributions are a load of bo1locks as everyone else has to pay them.

    Because we’re a balance sheet football club and in this day and age at our level, unless you’re really lucky, you won’t survive with that mentality.

    We could still act as a stepping stone club, but Unless you’re willing to spend c.25-30m on potential, you’re gonna drop eventually.

    Basically, it’s penny pinching and it’s not worked.
