Spot on.

So when we did eventually spend, there was more rebuilding to be done and the prices had gone up. Hence the false economy of 'value'.

You could also argue that EW was in part responsible for the disaster of replacing the CEO and Manager simultaneously, as he had been undermining Gill's position for some time.

Lots of reasons why we are where we are and the amount of net£spent is just one of them.

Lots of mistakes have been made. None moreso than handing over an absolute fortune for Van Gaal to squander on the likes of Schneiderlin and Darmian.

We didn't make significant investment while we were on top and now we're trying to play catch up in a market where prices have spiralled out of control. Its our own fault.

Back in 2010/11/12 While City were dropping over £100m every transfer window playing catch up, we were dropping 29m, 60m and basically just treading water. It was inevitable what was going to happen.

Now we're playing catch up, so yeah we're going to have to spend twice as much as City. Welcome to reality.

Has he had lots of money to spend? Yep. Is it enough to challenge a team that won 18 league games on the trot? Nope.

Their best players/top scorers this season werenít signed by him:

Aguero
Silva
De Bruyne
Sterling

Who did we have of that quality when Mou joined?

Silva cost £25m, Aguero was what, £38m? Both back in the seasons Sparky is talking about. We could have purchased both, but we didnít. Not because we couldnít afford it.

Sterling and KDB are more recent purchases, and again we could have had either of them if you look at the money we were spending at the time. If memory serves the sages on here said we didnít need Sterling because we had Januzaj.

The point is not about quality, itís about money. We spent a lot of money, on the wrong players. And are continuing to do so under Mourinho.

Gimps undoubtedly strangled spending whilst paying down the huge debt .

No doubt the class of 92 will be along soon to tell us where we went wrong

How many £25m+ players did we sign from 2009-2013? Canít think of many. Van Persie was around £20m wasnít he?
