Biggest mistake was letting Cahill go.

Cahill leaving was the correct decision at the time. He wasn't prepared to fight for his spot so left. In retrospect we'd've liked to have kept him. Decent window this time. Pattern of play will be similar to Liverpool away but at home we will need to be more attacking so he'll play two strikers more often than not. I seem to remember MON saying something long these lines as we need more home wins. Thus far we are 1 point up on corresponding fixtures at home and 3 points up away! So a decent start in that respect.

There is also Warnock at 7m to add to that. It actually works out roughly at 35M received and 123M spent. Over the 4 pre seasons that M'ON has had, it equates to 22m a season. When you include the infrastructure upgrades, training ground etc then the club have certainly put the investment in. Definitely more than we have generated as supporters. Bearing in mind he started from a club that just escaped relegation to provide 2 6th place finishes, that is reasonable value for money. Now we have to see if we can kick on with this squad. For the money he has spent on the squad each season (22M on average), the top 3 have all spent more than that on 1 player. Arsenal being the exception. Wengers spend in comparison to his sales equates to just 7M per season. Genius.

voiceoftheholte - spot on there. This is a crucial season and with Dunne signing I'm feeling confident. Sidders and Reo-Coker in the middle will be like new signings. Glad Shorey didn't go out on loan as he's looked good so far this season, and we've still got Young to come back and Downing to come in. A good cup run or two, 6th place and a spot in the Europa league will leave us in a perfect place to kick on next year. UTV!

Im sure with that amount of money Wenger could of made a top 4 team, Time will tell if MON has done enough, But we still haven't brought in a good Striker, the best peice of business he did was swapping Baros for Carew, and if Agbonlahor wasn't as good as he is we would really be in the brown stuff. I think he should rotate Agbonlahor and Carew all season in a 4-5-1 it means Gabby wont burn out and Carew wont get so injured, Cant really call Heskey or Harewood on the pitch.

Sweet Jesus - how many years does the Cahill question have to be debated?! He went because he wanted first team football and O'Neill wouldn't guarantee that to him. In my opinion, no manager should EVER guarantee any player first team football, and if a player demands it he SHOULD and MUST be shown the door.

Bob - apparently that is why Shorey's deal a pompey fell through... he wanted 1st team football and pompey couldn't promise it.

Spurs fan here in peace. Im actually shocked at how much youve spent. A net spend of over 85m is outragous. I mean this surely looks bad on MON, i mean hes bought alot of very average players for tonnes of money. Obviously youve moved forward as a club and Lerners been terrific. And yes hes made some good buys - Young quality (although who expected him to be this good?) Milner is a good player as is Petrov although took a while to settle. But theres at least 40m of utter *****e there. I thought Spurs were bad but at least our net spend is very low, we made over 85m in sales last year. Very suprised by this

That's OK, footy_fans, I don't care if Shorey doesn't go to Portsmouth because he isn't guaranteed a first team place, just so long as he doesn't demand one at Villa. Maybe, just maybe that's been part of the 'problem' all this time with Shorey. Those who have questioned why he hasn't been used might just have the answer now.

P.S. If memory serves me, Cahill wanted guaranteed first team football in a squad that included Melly and Laursen, not to mention Agent Ridgewell. Which of Melly or Laursen should O'Neill have dropped to guarantee Cahill his spot?

Spurs starting point was much higher. You had 2 or even 3 players for every position. We had seasons without a recognised Right Back. Yes, I know, MoN didn't buy one, blah, blah, but there was much work to do when he took over. This is the squad I feel we can build from. Spurs net spend has much to do with being a feeder club for ManU.
