prices are guestimates as most are undisclosed. If I've missed any, let me know, not so bothered by loans.
The Fear
god the money wasted/mistakes made makes me sick!
villa365247
Thats just it villa36547 just imagine having Lambert when Randy first took over, Fear youv' done a great job there mate no players missed!
ClivetheVillan
10m for Curtis Davis!!!!!! my my my, what a joke........
GibboVilla
So - since RL came six years ago what has been our net spend compared to other PL clubs?
PiperUK
Just guessing Piper, but prob on a par with spurs and only behind the manchester clubs and Chelsea i reckon
scoops
One of the years we were top spenders, another 3 rd, but don't have the figures you are asking to hand piper. I think when it was looked at last year, we were 5 th or 6 th net.
The fear
Looking at who we released and who we've signed since the end of last season.... Forget about Guzan because we've resigned him, butwe have let 3 go so far; Heskey, King Carlos and now Collins. We have signed 3 so far; El Ahmadi, Lowton and Vlaar (we'd already signed Holman before the end of last season). So in effect it's 3 in, 3 out. Admittedly the squad appears stronger, but numbers wise, I feel it's still not what it should be.

Pride of Lions
Sky did a report a few days ago on clubs net spend over the last 5 years. We were 4th biggest net spenders (and still people have a go at Randolph). We are the 8th best supported in terms of numbers. So in my opinion That means Randolph is more than matching the supporters. When you consider that Arsenal over the same period spent 20m less than they recouped you can see just how good a manager Wenger is. When you have had the ridiculous amounts of money that Manciteh and Chelski have it is hard not to be successful. For the likes of clubs like us and Everton every penny must be made to count. Unfortunately M'ON's spend in comparison to return on investment and the hangover he left of high wages meant he should be viewed as a failure, despite the kindest cup draws imagineable that meant we got to Wembley twice. He was given the budget to get us over the Champions League line and he didn't deliver. It really is that simple.
