    Would you want to attract that kind of talent though? I'd rather have a player like Jose Baxter who's full of talent but still dropped down the leagues and probably took quite a substantial pay cut to actually play some football. Not some greedy, prima donna who doesn't care and has no passion for playing.

    Interesting. Fans want top quality players, but trying to persuade top quality players to come to a Championship club is difficult. Fans then complain we're being stingy, not having the ability to attract the better players and amateurish. With no evidence, of course.

    I wonder how these perfectionists manage in our imperfect world?

    Seeing as you are talking on other peoples/ MY behalf, may I edit that slightly?

    "Fans want ... quality players, but trying to persuade ... quality players to come to a Championship club is difficult. Fans only start thinking we are signing TOP quality players when people linked to the owners start tweeting as such. When these signings never come off some of the fans then complain we're being stingy, not having the ability to attract the better players and amateurish. With ... evidence as most other clubs don't have the owners mate/ son tweeting about incoming signings which, through what ever reason, fail to completed"

    The original was a more natural read imo.
