In answer to you’re question from last night Terry .Brookbonds73 wrote: ↑Wed Sep 04, 2019 3:23 pmWhat it all boils down to is the fact that the £30 million spend the shysters said we had available before the transfer window opened isn't to far off the mark. As Newms said, they've also reduced the wage bill by a shed load in the process. In fact when you tot it all up they've probably come out quids in.
Yes, we are a better side? Well probably but I'd put that down to the managers 2nd season syndrome, he's seen what needed doing and signed good replacements, but couldn't go any further, let's not kid ourselves the glaring problem areas on the pitch are still there and those shysters weren't prepared to spend anymore to help him out. And they won't spend in January either, that's a fact.
He's taken a big gamble on us scoring more than we concede in most games, but we are only a couple of injuries away from struggling.
This season was a real chance to push on and try to break in to the top six, others are struggling. Will we do it? Well with a bit of luck maybe. Could we have done it, with a bit more investment? Absolutely imho, but the board have held us back.
This. What BB has said .
But I’ll throw a couple more thoughts into the mix.
Pinky and Perky have NEVER and WILL never back their manager in his second season ...
This time next year Pellegrini will be entering the final year of his contract .
Can you see those 2 cunts ploughing much needed funds into the squad then ?
Can you see Pellegrini being offered a new contract knowing he’ll expect financial backing ?
Would Pellegrini even want to continue ?
I know it’s possible to improve a squad with a low net spend , Pellegrini has done it.
But think about what COULD have been .
Think about what an extra 40-45 million invested in the squad could have achieved THIS season.
And make no mistake , the club have it but The Gruesome twosome would rather call in their interest dividends instead.
No Terry I’m not a fool but I’m not stupid either mate.
Edit to say I wrote this not having seen Whisky’s or BB’s latest contributions above and as you can see I agree with pretty much what they both said.
