This has been the same old story for years now. Managers budget restrictions. I appreciate that any business cannot run at a loss and this will be the case for years to come unless we can attract a wealthy investor, like other clubs have in order to get out of this league, and flourish in the leagues above.

I'll get my coat

My point is we signed Ainge, franks and deverdic’s in that window if I’m not mistaken. Those 3 wages combined would have got us somebody far more competent. The wage cap argument then resurfaces.

How do we know those were cheap?

All three were flops and question marks should be on why they were brought in (neither Aignr nor Frank's were fit when we signed them either). But I don't think it follows that it is anything to do with a wage cap, which after all is pure conjecture isn't it? Has anything concrete ever been put forward about this?

I'm not as much of a happy clapper as I probably appear to be. But it annoys me when pure conjecture is put forward and then people run with it with no evidence.

Ainge was a ridiculous signing - very reminiscent of some of the odd signings this year (mcintosh, bobb, Barton, Chambers). Are we simply bringing players in on a whim? Has the likes of Macintosh even been watched?

If the January signing weren’t cheap, there would be more money to fetch a proper signing in!

Ainge had scored 26 goals the previous season so wasnt that strange albeit I agree he turned out to be terrible

I'd imagine we have a relatively healthy budget, not right at the top of the league but not far off. Its then how we have spent it that has continued to be highly questionable

In the league below!!! He couldn’t run for Christ sake. We’d of only needed to see him once to work that out.

The thing that made it worse was Keates persevered in bringing him off the bench in nearly every game.
