Robbo was on the cheap was he not ? We signed Gini from a relegated team as well.
Is the price that important to you or is it about getting the right player in for the manager.
People really don’t understand the way the club works , the way the manager works and the current situation in regards our potential finances
A point I’ve made before; price is irrelevant, doesn’t matter if they cost 5mill or 50mill, ultimately it is down to the player to perform to a top standard and price doesn’t impact that. Mendy cost 50mill roughly, Robbo cost 7, yet Mendy isn’t fit to lace Robbo’s boots.
I’d say the majority of our team cost between 20 and 35mill. Only Keita, Alisson and Virgil cost more than 40mill. Fabinho at a push could rise to around 40mill after add ons. Generally we aren’t a club who spends a great amount in one individual player, we can leave that to the Mancs, Chavs, Arsenal, City etc and we’ve still completely blown them away.
Our defence has an academy graduate, either 3mill Gomez or free signing Matip at CB and 7mill Robbo from relegated Hull. United have 30mill Shaw, 80mill Maguire, 35mill Lindelof and 50mill Wan Bissaka but yet they’ve been a joke and over 30 points behind us.
Couldn’t care less how much we pay for a player so long as it’s the right one, not sure why people deem the success of a player/transfer window on transfer fees.
