I’m not and I know.

 

I'm still hoping we are doing fantastic deals financially just now so that we can unleash a thunderbastard of a transfer later in the window

Just one deal like this every window will eventually turn the tide so we start to get more yes’s

Ffp is very real this  year, people need to stop thinking “we’re the richest club in the world etc”

 

 and we need a cb, rw  and hopefully cm still 

 

 

 

We are the richest club in the world though 🤷‍♂️

We've got loads of room for FFP and will increase with better commercial deals.

 

I'm confident we'll panic in a good way and get a top 8 squad by the end of the wndow.

I believe Newcastle said they will spend £200m in the first year just this morning and we’ve already spent £115m (taking £10m for pope) so roughly (very) about £85m left.

 

 Say Hugo and botman went through that’s not a lot left

We'll spend more.

 

Hugo's brought in to be a an attacking option off the bench. We'll sign another attacker - maybe 2.

 

We'll sign 6 at a minimum imo.

I also think Targett’s fee will be seen as part of the January transfer window spend, which they were willing to spend money on a LB as we were linked with Digne, but went for the try before you buy option. Not that any of the rumoured amounts we will spend mentioned by the so called journos means anything, as they have proved they know fuck all. We’ll spend whatever we can on the right players, a modest fee for say Pope, or a big fee for someone else. I mean these are the same journos and Twitter accounts that had us offering Benfica silly money for Nunez just a few weeks back.

I'd probably be happy from now with Botman, Ekitike (or another young forward/wide option) and a top class right sided player. 

A midfielder of some kind later in the window (might depend on how we see Bruno fitting long term, and even if we get an offer for Shelvey) would then be a bonus.

I can’t see us getting 6 in this window

We are constantly being told we won’t spend that kind of money and people don’t want to listen.

Wasn't the same said in January though?

 

Don't get me wrong, I don't think we'll go nuts, but at the same time I don't think there will be a strict 

budget. It'll be more like, let's see if we can improve the side on £x and we'll keep £x aside if a player that we really like becomes available.

Yes but we’ve also been told coz of the circumstances we were in and Bruno becoming available. We used money ear marked for the summer in January. Only way we will spend much more imo is if we can recoup some in player sales but that’ll be unlikely to be much

I was afraid people would expect half a dozen players every window after January.

I think it's been proven that FFP is only there to generate fines money for EUFA. The richest clubs are more than happy to pay their tithe to stay in Europe. If FFP had any effectiveness, Real Madrid and PSG would have been disbanded by now, but other than a few bribes, they've been left well alone.

 

I say flash the cash, FFP is irrelevant.

Everyone has been saying this year it’s different, “ffp now has teeth” was one quote, no coincidence it was brought it after our takeover so if we ignore it we will get punished.

I’m genuinely not too concerned with how much We spend this summer. 
 

If the Saudis genuinely want to challenge and win top honours. We’ll have to trouble FFP eventually and spend some big money.  
 

If not we can be that top 8 side people always wanted us to be under Ashley.

If we don’t go north of £150m this summer it’s PIF out for me (lyk). They’re happy to spunk $100m dollars a piece on signing no-mark golfers but not their Premier League team?

I still expect a good 175 million to be spent this window tbh early days yet.

Yeah, same. I think we'll get Ekitike, Botman plus 2 attacking wide players and a cm or 2 possibly 1 cm ready to go and another who is yoinger

Their finances are scadalous. I think they launder a huge amount through the Spanish Government where they buy things like their training facilities from the government at knock down prices.
