We do

Your posts suggest, and I may be wrong, that you would like the team/club to fail. I don't think you've done one positive post since you joined, is there any reason for this stance?

I don't want the club to fail at all. But, I am a realist. Why has it taken kelvin so long to find extra investment?
The club has a budget, we spend to that budget, but if things go tits up we will have to spend more in January to get things right and stay up. Why not just do that at the start of the season, instead of gambling.

Who have we spent 500K on then?

Your just another troll who's happy spending someone else's money.

KT has increased the budget, Brady is happy with the budget. We can't financially compete with most of the teams in this division but I'm sure Brady will make us as competitive on the pitch, as we possibly can be.

What have we done this summer then? 5 in and more to follow and in my opinion decent quality to boot.

Do you genuinely think Kelvin hasnít planned the budget knowing we will need to recruit in January too? Are you suggesting we spend all the seasons budget at the start? So when we might get injuries or need cover in certain areas which happens every season we wonít be able to afford to do so? I just donít get your post at all. Moans when we donít sign, moans when we do. Weíve obviously only got certain money to pay with and heís managed to secure a bit more to try compete but unless we get a takeover thatís how things are. Unless you would prefer we spend beyond our means and get in financial trouble? 🤯🙄

Exactly why are we all so obsessed with what other fans say about a player that has left there club... Remember Pompey fans telling us how bad Ricky Holmes was ??

I'd say we probably have a better record with "other people's rejects" than we do with our supposed "marquee" signings.

It's harder to find proven quality these days. In the "good old days" when top level players didn't earn so much, careers were longer and you could pick up an experienced ex-prem level player. It happens far less nowadays

How do you know if any budget needs increasing unless the initial budget is put to the test? Also how to you motivate those who are providing the additional finance to act without providing any evidence or justification that itís necessary to do so. Just asking?

Iíd say having now been back in League One for a year, knowing weíve had a couple of seasons of increased injuries, knowing more teams than ever have bigger budgets even from promoted teams are fairly good indicators that we had to try our best to increase the budget as best we could to remain competitive. Not sure you always have to try the team out first then buy in January to know the budget needs increasing if possible, but obviously still need to spend within our means.

Perhaps they did increase the budget to what was felt were appropriate levels, but many of the other clubs in the EFL have been ever more reckless? Personally I feel itís difficult to assess without being given the full facts. Unfortunately some on here like to guess the circumstances and decide thatís the only possible scenario, and it rarely transpires to be the case. Particularly of late.

Yeah a combination of teams with bigger budgets falling from higher levels, some promoted with levels of investment we just canít compete with, and others probably just being reckless. If weíre able to find some middle ground and being able to compete in most games next season and give people a run for their money and do it on a budget thatís sustainable then Iím happy with that until someone able to invest significantly more comes along. I donít know all that goes on any more than anyone else probably but I feel confident Kelvin does whatís right financially for the club as well as them as owners.

Who have we spent 500K on then?

The number swirling around up here is 350k for Baldwin which is superb business for County. Tend to usually put a decent sell on (not that I envisage Baldwin moving on for a few million), but has paid dividend for us before with the likes of Ross Stewart.

There is not a snowballs chance in hell we've paid that figure for Jack Baldwin

It will be a nominal fee to pay up the last year on his contract. Sound like he wanted the move back down south as much as the club were happy to move him on.
So it's an amount to see that off but we're not wrenching him away or forcing anything through. I would be shocked if it's over 6 figures

No way would we pay £350k for a 31 year old centre half. Wrexham might, but not us.

The number I had is £25k. No chance of £350k.

Absolute tosh!

More like 35K if even that!

Our transfer record fee paid was 165K, so to think we've paid double that for a 31 year old with a year left on his contract & wanting to move back to England...

Think someones been drinking too much iron brew  Grin
