30 players in the 1st team squad all probably on a minimum of 10 grand a week, which equates to over 15m a year just in players wages. So I can understand lambert saying players need to leave before we can buy, FFP is something we need to abide by, it's just a shame that some folk think just because we've got billionaire owners that we can spend as much as we want.
Yes the beginning of the seasons influx of players was stupid, but 95% of us didn't think so at the time, but now it's all lambert fault and fosun have lost interest!
Come on let's have a bit of a reality check, plus which decent players are going to want to come to us sitting 16th in the league with a bigger possibility of relegation than promotion.

Quite a few on less than 10k per week but I get your point we were excited by the arrivals then in the first match only Bod started and John and Gladon and Silvio hardly played same as Tex now we are thinking that only 3 or 4 of them are any good.

I agree, it was a case of bulking the squad up but unfortunately we filled it with players that weren't good enough. That's going to be our major downfall when we come to try and move these players on. I do agree with a lot of people as to why we haven't sent the loan players back, just hope we weren't that stupid to sign them all up on 12 month loan deals.
I have faith in lambert to get it right eventually, and I would rather see the likes of ronan get a chance than spend money on over rated players, but also agree we are in desperate of a striker.
