NUFC, Leeds, Pompey, Hull, WHU are all reeling from deals they couldnt afford. I'm happy that my club is being prudent.
I reckon you're wrong about Crouch. It was geography and a higher profile team that swung it. We certainly have no evidence to show it was wages. We made a bid, he came up for a look around and he didnt want it. We would have known clearly ( via his agent ) what his wage demands were prior to him climbing into the plane.
