I'm aware of what I wrote, thanks. We wasted a load of money on the first team essentially. That is, as far as I'm concerned, true. If it offends you to be classed as a waste of money, then I'm sorry Andy. Try harder not to suck at your job.


He's not disputing that we wasted a lot of money, what he is disputing is your view that the owners have contributed a lot of that money. Doubtless it could have been spent better, but about 90% of the money spent I'd say came from money received on transfers and saved by trimming the wage bill.

You're quite obviously not.

lol, my internet crashed as I was trying to post (I did save the post).
You certainly put it across in a more diplomatic manner.

Yeah I know I've made the same point multiple times myself, a couple of times in the last few pages, including once immediately below one of the posts he quoted. Me and the Rigger/Andy have had this convo before and I've told him I agree with him. But on this occasion, I never said it was their own money they spent (rather than funds recouped from sales), and I didn't clarify because it was entirely irrelevant to the points I was making.

Firstly, it does not remotely offend me. Money was wasted. Exorbitant fees were squandered on average players. No debate.

Clearly you are not or you just aren't putting it across properly but think you are. Or as your most recent posts suggests, you are just being deliberately obtuse.

Perhaps aim for a better than 1 in 3 ratio in which your posts could be described in any way as accurate?


So here goes once more with ghusto:

Thing is, they've already spunked a load of money into the first team.


They have not put any money INTO the first team/squad, nor spunked it in, jipped it in or rode it in. Nothing went in.

This is not semantics, you are just plain wrong.

You followed up with...
Sasquatch76 said:
I agree. I'm just saying that initially they DID try to go nuts rather than the long term approach, and it backfired badly.


How did they go 'nuts'? They have not put any money into the first team/squad.

If you consider that going 'nuts' then I don't know what to say.
Your definition of going nuts differs greatly from mine. Man City could be considered to be going a bit nuts, Chelsea in years gone by have gone a bit nuts.

I imagine that if your dinner consisted of having a bit of dry bread with a glass of water on the side for dipping, you'd be thinking to yourself, 'I'M GOING NUTS!!!1!!

That's what I meant by spunked, no more no less.

Quite possible. The English language is not my strong point.

Not true.

You know where the ignore button is.

See above re: my use of "spunked".

Andy Carroll said:

Again, you missed my posts where I've fully acknowledged our net spend is practically nothing.

Andy Carroll said:

The context of that quote is important. Myself and PaulieC were talking long term vs short term. That is would we, and I'm using his words here as I don't have the linguistic skills, "be looking to spend wisely when we do spend rather than go nuts in an attempt to change the clubs fortunes in one or two transfer windows." I used the phrase "go nuts" because in his comment, it was the opposite of "spend wisely" which we didn't do (imo).

Yeah.
