    Our transfer record...

    ...is still Michael Owen (£16m). That's an astonishing fact when you think of today's climate market-wise in football combined with the fact that we are currently 10th in the league. We have had some tough times this season, but no matter what I'll remember it fondly; because of Rafa and because of the players playing as a team. In terms of ability they're not the best team we've ever seen here, but they make up for it big time with the dedication, fight and spirit which ended up resulting in a lot of points won.

    Everton has spent something like
    £170 this season - wouldn't it be a hoot if we managed to finish above them.

    What would be interesting is our net spend every season under Ashley.The Ashley lovers only ever mention the amount we spend.Interesting that one already on here mentions net spend elsewhere.It counts here as well and I bet it's minimum every season.

    I mention it because that's all I ever see with Newcastle. Net spend.

    I added all January transfers in as well.Not just summer.I asked about our net spend because it will show how little Ashley has spent.Cant have it both ways.If net spend is important elsewhere it is here.Put our net spend with the supposed loan that never gets paid off and free advertising,TV money etc,I think it's even obvious to you that the fat one has done very well out of us.He is the only one connected with the club that doesn't care if we go down the odd time.Just pocket the parachute payments.

    Here's our spend and incoming on transfers under Ashley(approx)
    07/08 Spend 18.5m Incoming 11m
    08/09 Spend 30m Incoming 32.25m
    09/10 Spend 1.5m Incoming 25.5m
    10/11 Spend 10m Incoming 35m
    11/12 Spend 23m Incoming 12m
    12/13 Spend 26m Incoming 12.5m
    13/14 Spend 2m Incoming 21m
    14/15 Spend 38m Incoming 21m
    15/16 Spend 75m Incoming 2m
    16/17 Spend 55m Incoming 86m
    17/18 Spend 36m Incoming 26m

    Total Spend 315m Incoming 284.25

    Net spend over 11 season is 30.75.

    Not very good reading is it.

    The mackems say that too (funny, that).

    I think net spend is the correct figure to look at, especially here when you´re looking at a player like Lukaku. Also, it´s what appears on the books at the end of the year and, therfore, what the club 'feels' in financial terms.

    2015/16 looks great but 09/10 and 13/14, terrible. It´s interesting to look at the numbers but, of course it´s the players who are bought, and how they perform that really counts. A high price tag doesn´t guarantee a good player and vice-versa (but, I know, it helps!)

    It's not really the players that worry me.Its where all the other sources of income have gone.Cant believe he is allowed to get away with it.The so called loan that never gets paid off,should have been paid ten-fold.
    But we are told we should be careful what we wish for when wanting a takeover.

    The elephant in the room for any PL club´s finances is wages - they are a huge and ongoing cost (ask Sunlun!)

    Considering the last accounts had wages at just under 60 percent of turnover.And turnover was supposedly 127m.Wages are easily paid from TV deals and match day revenue.Loan to the fat one stayed at 129m.For me the fat one has made and will continue to make a tidy sum from the club.
    Some might say why not he bought it.Okay.I would be happy if he re-invested player sales and used TV money every season.
    He doesn't.For me it goes in his pocket.He will be rubbing his hands at the thought Rafa and the players might deliver him a top 10 finish.

    Trouble is, the way the fat controller thinks might work against us. Look Rafa, we finished 10th/9th whatever it is, so why do we need to spend all this extra money? Thats what worries me,and if that happens Rafa will walk.That might suit 2 on here coz hes s..t anyway, ye knaw.

    a chimpionship squad,league one owner and a world class manager........take away the 3rd one and the other two is what we will be left with in the summer......rafa having this squad 10th is like ray charles winning the us masters with a f'ucking branch pulled from a tree at the first tee!

    The last thing we need to do is to get into any race to break transfer records.
    If it happens then fair enough but we need to be careful that we don't end up with a spiralling transfer record breaking few seasons ahead where we end up with a squad of high earners and very little gain from it.

    We all know what happens when you try to go the extra mile in coaxing players and find that they chose you specifically because you offered more wages. Then you end up with Rodwells.

    However, it all depends on he owner and Rafa, assuming Rafa stays on, because on the flip side of what I've said, we could potentially reap rewards.

    It'll be interesting to see how it pans out in the summer.

    Dunno why it said 170m in the OP, that's not what I meant. Anyway, the point was that without spending a lot of money this season we have put ourselves in a remarkable position - and we know it's not down to money. What is left is that it is down to having a great manager. Hats off.
