But Laslandes, Nunez and Helmer were on something like 80k a week combined and hardly kicked a ball. Robbo spent a fortune on wages for a handful of big name players, but Reid has spent a fortune on wages for several average players who never get a game. You also conveniently overlook signing on fees - the more players you sign, the more signing on fees you pay out to players and agents. I will be happy to continue this argument when you present anything other than annecdotal evidence about Boksic's alleged pay packet!Hetzkes Ballet Teacher said:Look at the wage bills over the last four years, which you have totally "forgotten" about. Here's a clue - Boksic is on 60k/week after tax.
Hetzkes Ballet Teacher said:Reid certainly has wasted some money, we all know that, but he's also made some excellent signings at generally good fees. I'm not sure what you mean by 'net', I assume its purchases - sales. If I'm quite glad that the SAFC number looks big as it means we haven't been a selling club (for the first time in my life).

Net = purchases - sales.
Quite possibly true. But it could also be no-one wants our current players or they have little sell on value - note the stampede to sign the 8 transfer listed lads (not). Also, if we are not a selling club whatever happened to Makin, Hutchison, Johnston, Rae et al who - on their pre-sale form - would have walked into our first team last season?
I read every bloody word of your post and you are getting progressively more defensive, annecdotal and less factual to the detriment of my patience!! My evidence encompassed several managers from differing backgrounds. If you are going to dismiss them all as not being applicable, why haven't you presented any evidence to contradict it - ie of one manager with a 38 game record as bad as Reid's who still has his job??HBT said:Your stats are meaningless because they are not comparing similar situations - the only thing that is comparable between them is the results over the last X games and, once again, we already know SAFC's are crap.
Your argument "we know last season was crap" doesn't bear scrutiny either cos you're dismissing it as not being applicable to the judgement of a manager's ability when it is there in black and white in the record book.
I am not going to keep arguing the toss with you until you present some evidence.
