Anyone who gives those sorts of figures is definitely talking rubbish.

Exaggeration or not though, there are surely upper limits to what we can spend - they're just determined by a combination of amortisation, funds brought in from outgoings and the wage bill rather than the simplistic use of transfer fees.

Brands himself said upwards of £100m didnít he?
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

No, in an interview with de telegraaf they said he had a £100m budget and then fed into his response about there being no financial shackles.
Even if that was a specific figure, he'd be daft to announce to everybody what he was allowed to spend.

I think we will be handling transfers very differently from here on in, quietly and out of the glare of media attention

Would imagine there would have to be decent money available. Brands wasn't coming here just to do some housekeeping.
Silva possibly is happier to be at a sizeable club with a decentish squad to play with.

My predictions is we'll end up with Lascelles, Rose, Lozano and Carvalho as our main signings.

Out will go Rooney, Williams, Robles, Besic, Mirallas, Garbutt and a few others.

I think that's about right, 4 quality players in those positions plus a coach that actually wants to try and score some goals will make a huge difference. We don't need the major squad overhaul that some people are saying, we do need a clear out but we don't need wholesale changes to the squad. As we and others have proven in the past, it never works anyway.

Personally for me its 2CB's in with (hopefully) Williams and Mori leaving.

Left back as a future Baines replacement, get rid of Martina.

1 left winger with both Mirallas and Bolasie leaving.

A midfield playmaker to go along side Gueye, with Besic and McCarthy leaving.

Another Striker to come in alongside Tosun and Niasse with DCL going out on loan.

Clear out some more deadwood/fringe players and that would do me.

Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

I probably should be, but im not excited about any of the players we've been linked with so far. Need an unrealistic hope to get the juices flowing

They are as exciting as we could hope for at a club lacking any European footie whatsoever.
