I'll be honest, those graphs means absolutely fuck all to me. The boil my brain.

I've startd to get to grips with them.

As with all statistcs/graphs they mean - in isolation - fuck all.
It's all about comparison though. So they only do any good when you have looked at a fair few of them (all in identical format) so you start expecting to see spikes in certain places etc

Whenever i see his name i can't help singing the andrei, andrei kanchelskis, andrei, andrei Kancheslskis song in my head.

But this guy isn't from the former USSR, so i'm looking forward to something replacing it.

That's not down to them not having an unlimited amount to spend though.
That's just down to them not feeling the player was worth the asking price.

If Brands and Silva thought we needed to spend 200m on players then we would spend that.
It's just the fact that we're spending a lot of money on wages for players that wont get near the starting 11 so they have chosen to deal with that first. this is why people somehow now think we're being conservative with money.

It may well come back in the future but they've been quite explicit in saying the current way of operating isn't sustainable.

Nope, they've been explicit in saying the squad is too big and they want to assess & trim that before buying for buyings sake.
They've even gone as far as to hint that we may have paid over the odds for players recently.

But, if they turn around and say "Bid 88m+1 for Ronaldo" now then the board are sorting that out and turning on the fax machine this afternoon.
That's the difference. We still have what is (for all intents and purposes) an unlimited budget. We just have 2 people in charge that believe a lean squad & value for money is the best way of breaking into the top 6.

The average wage in La Liga is between 23k-30k/week according to various sources on the internet. It's fair to say he's a pretty average player so if he's paid around the league average we'll be making up the majority of his wages.
He's signed a deal to earn him around 25m over the course of his contract. Someone will have to pay that and it's not unreasonable to think it'll be us ponying up a large proportion of it regardless of whether he's here or not, unless Brands can work wonders.

You're right - if we sell him (without him putting in a transfer request) then we will still have to pay more-or-less all of the wages his contract would have been for.

Obviously we have ways of negotiating on that (we wont sell or loan you out anywhere then and you can rot). Also, any wages he earns from his new contract is deducted from what we would expect to pay him from our current one. And any incoming fee will offset it for some amount. But it's the reason it went so badly for Leeds. They couldn't find takers for their players who were offering them anywhere near the same wages.
