    Fair point. We've done well to pick a couple of bargains out, but we'd need the best scouting team in world football and a crazy amount of luck to put a whole team of that quality together - we're always going to need to splash some cash somewhere down the line.

    I personally think the club's current strategy is the best. A few high-cost signings (Grabban, Carvalho) supplemented by lower-cost and freebies (Lolley, Dawson, Sow etc), a sizable chunk of which being paid for by academy sales.

    Am I correct in thinking we have just got £8 million quid for someone who has played a small handful of first team games?

    £8 million for Appiah £9 million for Bereton (1 goal from 25 appearances last season), £5 million for Benny (good player at Championship level, but never worth that with 1 year left on his contract).

    We have been doing bloody well with outgoing transfers recently.

    Sketchy owner 1: 'ere fella, I need £8m to balance ffp, fancy taking one of our lads and I'll get the wife to cut you a cheque after when no one is looking?

    Sketchy owner 2: As if any of your lot are worth £8m.

    Sketchy owner 1: We'll brief some BS that Man U are interested, they're still considered a big club on the continent yeah? Notts press believe owt.

    Sketchy owner 2: Done.

    I guess in 5 years time he will either be playing for England, in which case £8 million will look like a snip, or he will be playing for Exeter in which case we will have totally had their pants down.

    As always with these deals, they are paying for potential. Whether he achieves it or not isn't particularly relevant, only that it suits all parties right now.

    Now I've been put straight regarding the fee paid for Arvin, seems astonishing that we've got that amount for a young player with a big rep, but little to show for it. Obviously they see more in the player than our staff do, who have watched him at close quarters for a considerable time.

    He will do well no doubt as the standard of a lot of the teams in the Spanish second division is league one at best.

    Completely missed this. It’s a shame we’ve sold him and I’m genuinely disappointed. I wonder if we’ve inserted a sneaky but back clause or something. I certainly hope so.

    What a good dose of pace would do for us.

    8m's a lot of money, but we've spent far more on players who aren't doing much.

    Appiah is no faster than Lolley and others. He's not about pace. He's about quick feet. drawing people in and cutting inside.

    He wouldn't be playing much if he was still here.

    Look forwards, Alf. Not constantly backwards.

    It's about what we do in Jan now.

    Just think he'd be offering us more than some of the other bench options.

    I am looking forwards. Others need to look backwards to see the mistakes we keep making so we move forwards without making them for the umpteenth time.

    Losing Appiah & buying Carvalho sees us 5m worse off for a player 4 years older and less suited to this league.

    Maybe he can shoehorn that opinion into a few more irrelevant threads just to be sure.
