We all talk about who should come to the club and who we can and can't afford. But how much money do you tink we will have to spend this summer?

I read today that if Sheff Utd stay up Warnock will be handed £20M to spend becasue of the new TV deal money.

Considering Kilbane went at the very end of last year and Davies in January I would have thought that Moyes may have £15M - £20M or to spend this summer (assuming we get a UEFA spot)- plus anything raised from sales.

I know it sounds a lot, but it should be more that was avalable last year, becasue of the new TV money and increased prize money. UEFA cup gates and TV should put a bit more in to the coffers, nothing on CL scale but maybe £3-4M.

I think Moyes needs to identify his targets and get them in quick this summer, much like he did last year. With this new TV money coming in to the Prem and two fairly well off and well supported clubs like Sunderland and Birmingham coming up, competition for your £6M and less players is going to be fierce this summer.

So my best estimate is £20M plus any fund raised.

£20mil does sound like a decent figure but i doubt we will have that much, we have meant to of signed AJ and Lescott on the back of that TV money so who knows. would love to have £20mil to spend tho.

Yer we would all expect to have about that but with Eveton anything could happen.

If we have about 18 - 20 Million to spend for next season that would be good and if we sell to have that money aswell...

I think BT will go for about 2.5 Million

VDM 1.5 Million.

Naysmith 1 Million

So there could be 25 million to spend on maybe:
Fernandes - No one no's how much he will cost but lets say about 10
Baines 3 Million
Barton 5 Million
D Allesandro 5 Million
Arteta New Contract

25 million would get us all them things if we can sell good and buy good.

Just Thinking About That Team We COULD Have:

Howard
Hibbo
Lescott
Yobo
Baines
D Allesandro
Fernandes
Barton
Cahill
Arteta
Johnson

Turner
Neville
Carlsey
Vaughan
Victor

That Team Would Be Amazing...Even With 5 Midfielders The Midfield Would Give A.J Quality Service And Then He Would Get Us 20 A Season No Doubt...Maybe Even Champions League.

Lets All Get Behind The Lads On Sunday COYBS!!!!

I think the transfer money is already taken....but lets say about £15m - I think that has gone on Nugent (£7m) and Fernandes (£8m). We would have to sell to get more players in...Beattie out for £2m, VDM for £1m etc so probably end up buying some up and coming guy from the Championship....Giles Barnes?

yer, barnes is good but I wouldnt think he is ready to go strait into the first 11 so we money should be spent on people who would play every week.

It is more about having the necc funds available to bring in the right players. Rather than any golden war chest figure IMO. :)

Half on topic, but, I hope Moyes does what he did last year and despite all the millions of transfer rumours he has a few player earmarked and get business done nice and early with a few suprises.

As I recall, Lescott was out of the blue until it was happening

I heard it would be atleast 5 million for Chopra. To be fair I never get the opportunity to watch the championship here so it is hard for me to judge between the two. I just know the things I read.

No idea how much we'll spend but I'd hazard guess at a big fee (fernandes) which translates to a small wedge dependent on a lot of factors plus Barton for his 5.5M release clause. If the TV money & revenue we have from selling the deadwood ends up getting completely swallowed up without explanation like has done in the past I'll be pissed off.

I think you may get Barton for less than 5.5 due to his recent troubles.

I would love to see

In:

Bainess from Wigan = 3m?
Barton = 4m
Fernandes = 8m
Another centre Half = 5m - we will lose Yobo to African Nations Cup
Another Striker = 7m

Lets not forget we have already signed Howard

Out:

VDM = 750k
BT = 2.5m
Naysmith = 1m (tops)

Lets see what happens

Baines and Barton might cost a bit more, but even at your Prices your spending £27 million. :o :o.

I think £10 -- £15 million would be a more realistic figure ............ If we're Lucky.

I read in The S*n today that Moyes is expecting a £25m war chest for the coming season, so that could turn out to be £19.45.

We will not get barton for 5.5 million it will be well cheaper we are looking at 2-3 million i reakon they will want him out of the club so we shud make a bid.Maybe i dno very contraversiol. Baines would cost about 2-3 million i suspect. Also we should at least make an attempt to get sidwell squad player on a free. Also moyes hould try and get some loan signings to make up the numbers. Because we wil finish around 14/15th if we dont. Due to the fact that are squad is small and even tho it is quality they can not go all season with out a rest.

Mike, the £25m is based on Moyes being given half of the £50m alloted to all Prem clubs next season.

Well one thing's for sure, we are going to need more depth. All four of the teams in this year's UEFA Cup went into September with at least 29 players on their active rosters, and had enough to spare that they sent several out on loans, too. We have 26 roster players and nobody on loan right now, which - unless you're Chelsea and every one of your roster players are at or near world-class level - is not enough to handle both European and domestic campaigns. IMO we'd need to look at signing at least three or four guys this summer even if we brought all 26 back, and we already know that all 26 are not coming back.

now charlton have been relegated i think a move for luke young would be good for us. decent RB, was in the england set up before he got injured, he would have went to germany if it wasnt for the injury. wouldnt cost much, about £2m id say because charlton have missed out on the money next season so will need to sell to have money.

D.Bent may be cheaper now but would still cost abit, around £9m id say for him.

lets just think about this realistically and logically-

1. There is always some money available for transfers if we had a poor season - lets say £5M as a base kitty
2. We are finishing higher up the Premeriship - extra prize money (£0.5M per place) lets say £2M extra from say a mid table finish budget - £2M
3. A place in the UEFA Cup - Extra gates, TV money - lets say worth a conservative £2M.
4. The extra TV money - they have that in the bracket of being worth an extra £20M this year minimum- Half that say £10M, the rest goes on extra wages/reducing debt or whatever.
5. Money generated from sales - Beattie a definate, VDM. Naysmith - lets say £4M.

That gives a total of £23M, so I would say the £25M war chest may not be a million miles from the truth if you just add up all the little bits and bobs.

Trouble is that a huge percentage is from the extra TV money -which ever club will get, so in theory the cost of players and wages just goes up- so based on our past spending sounds a huge amount, but it's all just relative. i.e Everton won't have a particulaly large transfer budget compared to other.

I expect - £5.5M to go on Barton and £7M to go on Nugent straight away.

Sounds a lot for Nugent, but I expect this summers transfer costs to be around 20% higher than last seasons players, as there is more money out there to spend at each club.

......

Wouldnt be surprised if nobody left or its possible Bent might go, but teams departing the Prem this season will get £20 million pounds for the next two seasons. I think they might hold on to most of the squad.

Teams going down always get money for the next 2 seasons. Unfair advantage to me but thats the rule, good old Watfard CAME UP, NEVER SPENT A PENNY GOT THIS YEARS MONEY AND WILL GET £40m MORE NOW COS THEY'RE RELEGATED. :o :o

A stupid rule if you ask me but thats the FA for you.
