The guys always counting every dime when Mg't can't close a deal and think a player is too expensive *cough*cough*Faivre*cough*
suddenly greenlight the buying of a bunch of no-name players: "Relax they're cheap"
We better not be short ONE DOLLAR in any future negotiation because we're balling apparently
Nah, I’ve always been of the opinion Redbird should release more money available to Maldini and Massara. The way I see it, Elliot first tried to spend(think Higuain, Paqueta, Piatek) and got bit by it, and Covid fucked the economy worldwide, so we had to slow down. And it made the club more efficient and creative/better at scouting. But revenues have gone up and costs have gone down, and since the team is actually good, I was surprised when we hardly spent this summer. I think we’d both agree on that.
I will however always be of the opinion that they should never pay more than a players worth, whether it’s for a youth player or for Leo Messi. That’s the shit that fucked us up in the first place, or a big part of it at least. Faivre is a funny example, he doesn’t play much for Lyon and hasn’t been very good. So yeah… and when everyone here bitched and moaned for the management to pay that extra few million for CDK, a lot of those same people are currently whining about them paying too much for CDK. There’s a flip side to your argument, you didn’t make the point you thought you did bro. I can think they should put more money into the team and still not overpay for any player.
And a random side note about having an extra keeper, like I said this is reactive, as in they’re reacting to an injury problem. Fans don’t think of this stuff but clubs do, they plan for this. Imagine if we wasted some of the budget on a dud like Faivre and then actually couldn’t afford to bring in a replacement for an injured player. Dest is trash but he was that, going into the season they surely thought Calabria florenzi and kalulu is enough. Imagine Tomori tears his acl in training tomorrow and Maldini tells Pioli, sorry dude we spent all the money in the summer, nobody new will come.
