Player Valuation: £70m
Good points about overpaying and dearth of good players available.I'm a saints fan, from everything thats been said and from our own ITK, seems like Koeman is on his way to you guys. I'm sad to see him go, he did us a very good turn, and really helped the club in a hard time for us.
Disappointed to see him go, but I have faith that we will find a good manager to succeed him, and that our club is in safe hands. Slightly suprised to see him go to you guys, your definitely the bigger club, but after two years of hard work with us and another crack at Europa this season, it's slightly surprising he would give that up, for rebuilding a struggling team (even with the promise of huge investment.)
A question to you Everton fans, with City, United, Wet Spam, Chelski and you lot all planning on big overhauls of your squads and spending X hundred million, do you think A) there are enough good players out there, for all these big clubs? B) By saying you have 150 million to spend aren't you opening yourselves up to overpaying massively on players, as clubs know you have cash to burn?
I can remember how some unscrupulous pub landlords/tennants would raise the price of drinks for foreign sailors in town with money burning a hole in their pockets (You've probably seen the same yourself down there).
Most clubs will behave the same way with the clubs you mentioned, ourselves included. This summer, we'll all be like sailors on shore leave Staggering round the town desperate to spend ous hard earned money on over priced watered down beer and disease ridden trollops.
