I really have no reason to be confident in us getting him but I am. What I’m not confident in is us bringing in the other parts we will need.
See where your coming from mate and no one can blame your apprehension, however, I’ve got the feeling that FSG have been dreading this day coming and have perhaps prepared themselves for a massively heavy hit financially,
Their not f***in daft, nor blind, they have seen themselves the kind of outlay it will take to keep us competitive, spending large clearly isn’t in their thoughts at any given time, but they do know that eventually they will have to, and right now, or this summer the time has arrived,
You only need look at the net spend since 2010 to see the difference between what they spent on average each season to that of those manufactured clubs and one or two others who went way over their particular budgets, my take on it is that they spend big to bring in certain individuals, key players that Jürgen will need, and build around them the fringe players,
To them the big spend spreads out over time bringing the net spend down over those seasons where they are frugal, i dunno mate, maybe I’m talking bollocks, but what other reason is there that explains why they’ve been so f***in tight arsed, apart obviously from their only spending what you earn bullshit,
Now I don’t know if Terry Henry has let the cat out of the bag in regards to Bellingham, I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but Jürgen will know what’s required, and he will have had conversations with those who write the cheques what is required and will with the help of the transfer guru’s have a idea of the ball park figures involved,
For us fans and supporters it’s pure speculation and something to debate but if we’re talking perhaps 4/5 coming in then FSG are facing a spend north of £250m, they have been our custodians now for 13 years, I don’t have the net spend over that period, now say hypothetically their here another ten years that £250m isn’t such a massive amount, there will be add on signings between now and then but I think you’ll get my drift ??
Hope over Fear !!! 🏴
