    It is if it doesn't weaken you too much , to be fair Luton recruit very well and deserved their championship trophy last season , there wasn't much between us but they just had the couple of percent more than we did , if we hadn't lost Moore for the last two months of the season we may have just pipped them for the league .

    Done very well have Luton to come from the National League to the championship in a relatively short space of time on a limited budget .

    As I say they recruit very well do Luton , Mick Harford is in charge of it and he's very good at finding very good players under the radar .

    They took Matty Pearson off ourselves last summer who was a pretty ordinary full back and turned him in to a very good centre back .

    Only a proper football man would have seen that , top lad is Mick Harford .

    Mick Harford did very well but he was officially Interim Manager and Graeme Jones now Manager. Danny Hylton and Andrew Shinnie have both been good since leaving Rotherham!

    Shows the journey Luton have been on when they were spending over a million on Lundgren 30 years ago.

    I would be happy if we spent UP TO £1.5M, that doesn’t include wages.
    Ladapo was more than 500k.

    Rest of the profit can go on stabilising the club long term.
