      Those stats should be pinned to the head of every Hughton unbeliever.
      So basically, nothing this season is down to the manager; it's all Tony Bloom's fault?
      I'm just interested to hear your view.

      Doomed if team's spend, doomed if they don't!


      Brighton = blue
      Albion = white
      Hove = just a little gold necklace stripe

      Really? Doesn't it just illustrate how the players we have splashed out on have largely failed to make an impact?

      Yes.

      A little statistics are a dangerous thing
      "I have been in professional football since I was 16 - that's 33 years this summer. I have seen and done it all. In Brighton, I thought that I had found a club that sat outside the norm. People who love their club but are realistic about their club's prospects in dire circumstances. That appealed to me. That is what I call true loyalty. Supporting the club as you have done through the hard times. I am prepared to be here through these hard times and to develop a squad as I have started to do in preparation for the day that we all move to a new stadium at Falmer. I need your support, patience and understanding in the long-term because there is no quick fix. I hope you will continue to give me that opportunity." Mark McGhee, 17th April 2006

      If we take these statistics at face value one may well come to the conclusion that competing in the Prem is basically a waste of time as it is all predetermined by how much has been spent.
      The managers of those clubs who haven't spent much know they are in the shit before the season starts and so do the directors, which begs the question, why bother, unless you are prepared to spend big bucks?
      Just asking? And does it mean that managers that perform in line with their club's expenditure have a ready made excuse if they do no better than they are forecast to do according to expenditure?
      If so, how depressing and what happened to the ability of managers to get players and teams that may not have been assembled at great cost, to outperform?
      Perhaps this is the case in the Prem and it would be interesting to know how this works out in the lower leagues.
      I'm not totally convinced by this and am daft enough to believe that a good manager can still have a huge influence over their team's results.

      I think it is a direct correlation, just like for instance life expectancy is linked directly to wealth. It is a little clumsy and there are always outliers but money talks these days and the top few have a ridiculous amount, so much that yes, as a fan of a mid-sized club, which is probably what BHA are, it is depressing.

      The first table can be used to show that, however, the second shows Hughton is doing better than he 'should'.
      If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......

      Aren't they the same table - one in alphabetical order and one in order of spend? Or am I missing something?

      Yeah sorry, and I see what @Bozza is saying i.e. we haven't used high fee players as much as we might have and then that has affected how that table looks. It is a crude measure but interesting.

      Transfer spend is not the only significant metric... wages spend is equally important.

      I suspect that we would also look to be doing OK in a wages comparison?
