Not to get drawn into a finance argument but our finances are a bit of a mess at last accounts.
EBITDA of £7m compared to say Liverpool at 70 odd, West ham at 50 odd, even Southampton on 35m. Only 4 teams lower in the league.
Our wage to turnover ratio is very high at 77%, again only 4 teams worse.
We can swallow a deal like this, but not many of them. Also it would be vital for us to move as many of the wasters as we can as soon as we can.
