It was a serious question though. When it's not your money, it's the easiest thing in the world to say just spend it. But what we spend on transfers and wages does have a very real impact on our profitability and pressure to increase all aspects of our revenues, including match day revenues.
I am not being at all judgemental about it by the way - I don't go to many games anyway and haven't had an ST in donkeys years, so it's irrelevant from my perspective. I just raise the question whether people would be prepared to pay more to attend matches, if we were to start splashing the cash even more than we do already.
But it's part of a process of regeneration of the squad. So whether we spend the money this summer or next summer we have to spend it. We've lost Kelechi, Navas, Nolito, and only brought in Silva and Guardiola sees him more as someone who'll play in the KDB/Silva roles.
I'd understand if we were talking about Sanchez's fee, but we're talking about a lad who's 18. It's also worth noting what Pep said today about Dani Alves when he was asked about the Neymar deal.
