Wow, they’ve spent more on one player than we’ve spent all summer.

Money doesn’t automatically make you safe from relegation but on the other hand, buying quality like this won’t do you any harm.

People need to remember though, Fulham only have 13 first team players atm and don't even have Mitrovic or Targett who were massive for them. They need 10-11 players and trying to get them all to gel is going to be hard, They have a serious challenge on their hands imo and I reckon them and Huddersfield will be right in it.

That's a quality signing to be honest. He was Barcelona bound last summer and a lot of the bigger clubs have shown interest.

If they want to buy Mitrovic and Targett that will cost them another £30 million perhaps even more

Which means that they will have spent £65 million on basically 1 more player than they finished last season with, that player being an untried Ivorian who has never played in British football

Big gamble

That's what I thought. Looking at their current side they need 1 Right back (to replace Fredricks) 2 Centre backs, 2 Left Backs, 2 Centre Mids, 1 Winger and 2 strikers. so they basically still need 10 more players due to the fact that half of their team were loan players that were the core of their team and now they cant get them back. Where if you look at us, the core of our team were our players with a few loans to bulk up the squad. The problem I see with Fulham is, they relied heavily on 4 individuals to get them promoted, Fredricks (Who's gone) Cairney (Who wont dominate games against better opposition) Sessegnon and Mitrovic (who's left and will cost 20m+ to get back). I never felt with us that we relied on individuals to win us games, as we had players all around the park that could get us goals. I reckon Fulham might be found out in the prem and will not be able to dominate games and rely on individual brilliance to win them games like they did in the championship as other clubs will be able to deal with those 2-3 players. Also always thought Fulham played way to high a line and looked dodgy defensively.

Spending like us previously in premiership, surely cannot justify 35m on one player ! Only top 7 pay that kind fee plus wages totally nuts by yank owner. :old:

Didn’t mention any of that I’m just comparing quality. I’ll trust Warnock to get it right but I’d love to see a bit more quality come in.

I agree and do need a quality midfielder, i was just saying only top teams pay 35m for a player not sure how they can justify price being newly promoted :old:

We didn’t spend that much last time around our largest fee being about 11m for Gary Medel whilst Caulker was approx 8m. Also consider the fact that large chunks of the money were recovered in sales. I think that the club need to spend sensibly by adding quality whilst not going mad. Spend 35-45m of the 180-200m the club will get and it has to be a sound investment if the club survives in the Premiership. You survive the first season and most clubs go from strength to strength. It’s only by surviving those early years that some of the top clubs have got to where they are now. 200m invest, stay up, 200m invest, stay up and that’s how it goes. If Fulham spend 60m for example and stay up I’m sure that they will say it’s money well spent. Each club has presumably a sensible figure in mind without putting the club into crisis if they are relegated.

Look at the Championship clubs who are chasing the dream because there are huge sums of money in the Premier League.

You may be right about speculating to accumulate but even established teams wont spend what Fulham and wolves are spending! But guess now money is so huge that its irrelevant what teams spend even if get relegated selling players they've bought at great expense will benefit them alongside massive parachute payments., so think city even if relegated will do well next season :thumbup:
