David Moores sold because he could not compete with the likes of Chelsea or City or UTD he thought he could manage £20mil net a year if he had been introduced to FSG with their plan to make the club financially self sufficient he would not have sold to them because he could have done that.
We would not have bought Ali or Virgil if we had not sold Suarez and Phil so forgive me if I dont think FSG are model owners they are model self serving business men.
Going back to Moores selling he would not have sold ifhe could have borrowed money todays low rates. So I will not be watching the NHL shouting GO Penguins
If Moores could have done it - why didn’t he during the years 91-2008 ?
We have bought more than Alison and VVD
What did you think when they sold Keegan and bought Kenny ?
Or when we sold Rush and used the money to buy Barnes and Beardsley
The club in past have always sold players and used the money to buy players - even way back in the 70’s and 80’s
I suspect no one was crying about net spend then
I’m not sure who are “model” owners - is there such a thing ?
