Obviously Muric isn't here, thank God, then you've got Bong, Jenkinson, Benalouane, Hefele, Diakhaby, Adomah, Pantilimon and Bridcutt's wages that make absolutely no sense.
Even ignoring that, by my reckoning - just counting players that didn't do a thing for us all season, we wasted over 6 million. Obviously it's a lot more when you counter the fact that we paid 40k a week for two reserve right backs among other madness.
Will it ever end though, the only constant over many years has been the absolute dross bought in every window instead of the targets we chase for weeks on end. Shaping up to be groundhog day now, lots of promise and fuck all but shit players that bomb when they pull on a red shirt. God I hope we actually get some decent additions before we go through all this again.
Been saying it for years. The club's recruitment 'policy' (if you can call it that) is an absolute shambles. It has been basically since Fawaz took over.
A scatter-gun approach relying on agents word of mouth, hoping that some will come off rather than doing proper scouting. It's little wonder the club gets itself in such a mess when it shows such reckless abandon towards transfers.
