That's the important bit.
Too many people think when we call for more spending that we want it to be stupid amounts. That couldn't be further from the truth. I just want us to at least be on the levels of net spend equal to the likes of mid-table teams, or actually just spend something.
It's the net profit from transfers over the last five + years that does my head in. Turn that £25m profit into a £25m spend over the last 5 years, and that's £50m difference in talent on the pitch this season. That could have made a big difference in results.
