With debate hot in our forums on whether our club, in particular the men on the Clubs's board are willing to splash cash out on our squad, it is time to really sit down and look around.
Over the last few years, how much cash have we really spent? 6 mill on bellamy, 3ish on Benni Mac, Robinson, Roque Santa Cruz, a few in the mid 500k range, nothing much else? Another few freebies and additions to our youth acadamy. And what have we lost, Bentley for 17( of which we get about 9), Friedel for 2.5, Bellers for 6 and a few others such as Savage, Kuqi and youth players.
Now with all these ins and outs, how does our squad fare. Top 10 finishes 3 years in a row, including an Unsuccesful European campaign and Domestic Cup Semis.
Now lets look at where the man who took us to new heights over the last 3 years has gone, Man City. This club has spent millions on international superstars, almost pulling of one of the most audacious bids by trying to attract the Ronaldinho to the other half of Manchester. Players go in and out of the club like a revolving door.
Sparky has gone from a situation where the board would provide sufficient whilst not extravagant funds when required, to a club in turmoil. With so much spent in the last few years, Thai owner Shinawatra is having second thoughts in his future at the club, and is deciding to sell some of the clubs prized assets.
Now what club would you prefer to be at, a place where you have decent finances to spend with the support of the board, or a club where not even the manager knows who will be in his squad the next week.
I know where i would rather be...
BLACKBURN FOR LIFE....
