Would you put a private business letter on a public forum you tool 🤣

 

I'll get a quote from a made up "spokesperson" to add weight to what I've said. 

 

How many players have you bought for fees in the last three seasons?

Well for starters:

Brewster, Ramsdale, Bogle, Lowe, Davies, Burke, Ahmedhodzic.

I'll give you Brewster (it's a pity Liverpool didn't), I doubt Ramsdale cost much, Burke was a swap deal and the others were undisclosed fees which usually means they're being paid in installments.

 

A few signings granted but hardly the signings of a club with a very rich owner coupled with top flight tv money.

This link says otherwise as Sky reported £15m for Lowe and Bogle

 

https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12066154/sheffield-united-blades-complete-jayden-bogle-and-max-lowe-signings


Or this one stating they paid £18.5m for Ramsdale

 

https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/transfers/aaron-ramsdale-transfer-sheffield-united-bournemouth-fee-epl-a9672111.html#


So that’s over £56m on transfers including the £23m for Brewster

 

But as always you’ll come back with something to dispute that as well.

Speculation, find some more accurate sources.

How is Sky Sports not an accurate source? What would you class as an accurate source? Someone from SUFC Finance Team? Cos I’m sure with your connections you could ask them to confirm. 

Is the £23m speculation for Brewster?  Cos I’m sure you were very vocal about the fee ever since we signed him.

And even if undisclosed fees are paid in instalments, they are still paid transfer fees.  How many teams do you know who pay out fees up front (other than possibly the Big 6).

  • Ramsdale: 20.5m
  • Burke: 6.5m
  • Bogle: 3.85m
  • Lowe: 3.85
  • Coulibaly: 2m
  • Davies: 300k
  • Ahmedhodzic: 4.5m

 

Thats over 67m

 

How much have you spent on players in the last 3 seasons?

Don't mention or ask anything about the team who were deducted points for financial fiddling, you'll be accused of being a **** stirrer amongst other things.

Threats of Admin for unpaid bills.

Don't say anything about that.

They'll end up wanting to talk about the thread topic all of a sudden the best run team in the City and the best football team in the City.

A lot of those figures were undisclosed so speculation, lets say it was £67m for arguments sake, it bought you the worst start to a season in football history, money well spent 🤣

Enlighten us on how relevant it is how much United have spent since relegation? Tops is obviously fixated on it and spouts the same nonsense every window, incorrectly....

 

We upon relegation we remained very much in tact. We didn't wholesale sell, we kept a team together who in all fairness did compete at Premier League level. The relegation season was a let down, but the squad was more than good enough to compete in the championship.

 

We have then complimented this with a few loans and signings in areas in which we have lacked depth mainly. We haven't had to go out spending on signings, because in the whole we have pretty much had 2 players for every position. 

 

You dont have to go out and make ridiculous signings to try and fix something that isn't broken at the end of the day..... But obviously bias translates this as apparently skint.... despite spending reasonably on strengthening in the right areas.

 

 

The understatement of the decade.

 

Dress it up how you like he's skint, had to borrow to survive with loan payments based on future Prem money that obviously didn't materialise you've been lucky that it's a weak Championship so you'll save your neck by going up.

Can someone just clarify this ‘weak Championship’ thing for me? Teams are beating each other week in and week out with not many teams standing out (other than top two) so how does that make it weak if everyone is evenly matched? It’s funny how each year that Blades are in the promotion race that others claim it’s ‘weak’.
