    Or does he?

    Dear BG,

    We will NOT sign a 4th-choice CB, we will sign a CB WHO IS GENUINE COMPETITION FOR DUNK, DUFFY & BALOGUN, or at least make a very good attempt to do so.

    Ditto with winger signing.

    Yep. Of course. CH makes this absolutely clear with his squads:

    Re: winger. Probably tomorrow and €25m
    Re: CB - likely Moore (still interested) or O Connell (interested) - could be £7m+ or er Moore.
    So yep B.G - no journeymen or out of contract players or freebies . Agreed ?

      Thank you CJ... I must admit BG's suggestions for CB acquisitions, plus getting by with Jiri, were somewhat irksome to me, when our beloved club have clearly made significant investments in our squad, and have also made significant bids on players in the very positions where BG is suggesting we will / should go 'bargain bucket'...

      BG does have a bit of a point in a way.

      Jow much is left in the warchest after £60 million transfer fees, big sign on fees for especially Balogun and Andone, a new contract for Groß, no doubt another one for Dunk soon, and squad pay rises and wages ?

      We need to maximise our incoming fees for sure.

      And paying a big fee for a central defender as well looks tricky.

      Just name one transfer that the Bloom era Albion have made that looks even remotely like the club was following a palace model?

      It's not about following the palace model. It's just that sometimes the budget is spent and further big fees ( £15 million for Moore etc. ) are not possible.


      We may need to set aside budget for a new contract for Dunk when Leicester want to spend the Maguire money as well.

      Why especially Andone ? He wasn’t free

      Just that we got him at quite a discount and he was very keen to come to us. I suspect his signing on fee was decent.

      I’d imagine he was very keen to have a crack at the Prem, I’m sure he had a reasonable signing on fee but no more than anyone else I’d expect. Balogun however probably picked up a nice cheque.
