To splash the cash or not, that is the question...

As much as Alfie would like the board to splash the cash, Lowton's return epitomised the strength in depth and quality of signings over the past few seasons without spending unrealistically. Wasn't the most recently released wage bill including bonuses over 80 million. All this and look at the bench and without Defour most of the season. I don't think our 17th position before the game last week accurately reflects our capabilities. 9th to 12th would be more realistic. So hasn't the board got it right?

Ffs, a few weeks ago some Burnley fans were wanting SD out. If you splash the cash to bring in better quality you also have to splash the cash on wages, and don’t forget the agent’s fee. There’s a few clubs on the brink of administration/extinction because they can’t balance their books, ‘buyer beware’.

Soapy,I'd like them to splash the cash on some decent signings and not on players who will never get in the first team hardly..

We need to add to our ever increasing list of good players coming through for next season ..

Anyone we buy has to be better than the existing player. Buying players as squad members is just bullshit and a way to waste money

Glad I'm not on my own in thinking we have made some poor signings.. No doubt Next season will be no different to the board after we have survived another season with the squad we have..Onwards and downwards.lol

Seriously? Defour?!!! The forwards you mention haven't had much of a sniff except Jukes though they would have had if the first choice strikers had got injured. Bamford was only on loan and Lennon - that's harsh, he has had some good performances.
