    Wilson 2.5m
    Abdoun 2m
    Lichaj, De Vries, Henderson & Jara signing on fees = 500k/1m (?)
    = 8.5m

    Pep 2.5m

    = 6m spent

    Not calling him just saying now he hasn't spent as much
    As I first thought.
    As for wages and the 8-12mill losses a year he already new that when he brought us so did past owners
    And any other potential buyers.
    He's not done bad so far and I feel we will still get better.

    Like I say if you read I think he has done fantastic.
    Also think hendo, makie, dex, and cox will do a fine job
    Up top.
    Got to be close to 30 goals to come from them four!
    But who is going to hold the middle now? Gillet?

    You haven't posted anywhere in this thread that he has done fantastically. You said he has done 'not bad'. Besides, I wasn't saying you were slagging him off mate, I was just putting the comment on the board before the 'Fawaz is broke' brigade get started.

    I'm not sure those three will get 30 goals, Cox and Mackie both have poor goalscoring records (but are good players) and I don't think Dex will be getting many minutes. Hendo all depends on his court case but I still can't see him getting more than 10-15. If we're to get promoted it will have to be on the back of lots and lots of 1-0s and 0-0s. Our defence is brilliant so we may find ourselves relying on them. I would personally put Jara or Halford in as holding mids. Both can play there and would do a dependable job, allowing our creative midfielders to do their job.

    Plus the cost of buying the club, plus all of the players he brought in or funded loans of last year (collins, harding, halford, Gueds, Lansbury, Cox, etc), PLUS all of the payouts to all of the managers he's sacked.

    People seem to have very short memories around here. When Fawaz took over the club we did'nt even have a team to field, and I and many others feared we would go into administration ala
    Portsmouth. He has made some mistakes along the way but we now find ourselves in a position we could only dream of just over a year ago. Steve Cotterill as manager scrapping against relegation , selling a loyal captain to stay afloat, things could be much much worse......so from me it's a big THANKYOU. Gutted that Pep has gone but Jara plays DM at international level so it's not the end of the world.

    All sounds sweet!
    Just ment this window though.
    Could not ask for any more really of Fawaz
    So far good man and thank you.
    I would be surprised if the four strikers I mentioned didn't get 7 goals
    Each this season plus tuds could chip in at
    Some point!
    Then the riedys and Lansburys too.
    Think we will still finish top 6 with the team we
    Have right now.

    At least they were trying to bring players in and to be honest i think they made very very good offers for the ones they went for and it would have been stupid to pay more IMO.

    pep going was a suprise but as good has he has been he was always liable to send a pass wayward in a dangerous position and that can cost you points ove the season.

    I for one am still confident of a decent campain

    Yeah, I didn't get that. All part of the press conspiracy.

    That scene in The Shawshank Redemption when Andy Dufresne crawls through five hundred yards of shit-smelling foulness, only to emerge in the creek, where he rips free of his clothes and breathes in the sweet air of optimism, victorious by sticking to what he believed in. Hope can set you free.

    No disrespect to Nigel Doughty but that was our club from the minute Billy Davies left, to the point where Fawaz realised his mistakes and reappointed him.
