    That was for 4 or 5 players so not exactly splashing out.
    But it’s not doing it ‘on the cheap’ is it? We could have signed a number of out of contract/cheaper players.

      We are trying to do Premier League survival on the cheap and it doesnít work.
      What utter crap. We spent some £40m in the summer from a club bankrolled by a fan.

      We've not tried to do it on the cheap, we've tried to do it with what we can AFFORD! Did you forget it's not your money, where we've come from? Do we seriously think TB is letting us down not throwing even more money at it!? That is gratitude for you. Maybe we were better off with owners that are willing to sell the ground under your feet...

      £40m is nothing in the EPL Iím afraid. Nothing to do with gratitude itís just a fact. If thatís all we can afford then this isnít the league for us.

      That is a completely different statement to saying we have tried to do it on the cheap. If you don't understand the difference, then I can't help you.

      Feels a bit like it right now, doesn't it?

      No poll because that's how I roll.
      This thread is useless without a poll.

      It is when your income has just increased by £100m+.
      This. £100m extra from broadcasting alone.

      Plus countless £mís from greater advertising revenue, ticket price rises, sell outs, corporate hospitality and merchandising.

      Is correct.
      The club’s business model loses £20m to £35m per Championship season. Most of the parachute income simply mitigates the losses/huge outgoings.
