    Views on Toon's possible sales

    Unfortunately we won't raise as much this time as last time around.

    Not only will we not raise as much as last year, we'll simply not raise a lot altogether through player sales.

    Therefore, we're highly dependent on TV money, season tickets, sponsor money and other incoming profit. I don't know how much that adds up to, but the term 'every last penny' (quote Mike Ashley) still seems quite vague to me. I doubt we'll have a 100 mil for this window. I think 50-60 is more likely. And I don't know if that's adequate for our situation.

    I'm aware Rafa stayed on so he must've been guaranteed a budget that he can live with. However, just remember how disappointed he was in January with our (lack of) transfer activity. I wouldn't rule out the possibility of something like that happening again. We're dealing with Ashley, he can be like night and day.

    Still; overall I'm an optimist for the time being. Come on the toon.

    It'll be interesting if we do sell Darlow.

    He's done well but Rafa doesn't seem to trust him like he does Elliot.

    I think it'll be an interesting summer.
