I doubt very much that they haven't considered at least one more oligarch or sovereign fund moving into the Premier League.

From a purely investment perspective it is a good thing.

If it happens to us probably best that it's Norway.

We need Wes and Nas to be ruthless and not waste any time if this is no longer working. Going backwards simply wonít be good enough and we are at an astonishing rate. Time to pull the trigger boys.

Yep, you donít spend hundreds of millions and watch everything go backwards. They stuck with Bruce too long, hope they donít do the same with Smith.

It's put up / shut up time in January for me now, transfer-wise.   Are you REALLY all-in? Or not.  Of not, thanks very much.

Agreed
That statement is bizarre considering the progress thats been made and the strides in development of the club as a whole.
Clear isn't enough for some.

Have to agree, what rank nonsense.

I see the £400m you've invested, but you know lads, unless you make it a cool half a billion in January, you're just not serious for me.

I'm not too concerned about the money.

What's clear is sooner or later they've going to have to make a big call on the manager.

Two and a half years ago Leicester were slumming it in bottom half with a squad far more talented. Owners sacked Puel and appointed Rodgers. That worked out o.k for them so that's the sort of call I'm expecting at some point this season as we obviously have plenty of good players in the squad now so perhaps need a bit more direction out on the pitch.

Yeah thanks for saving the club from a shyster and possible extinction, but unless you spend what I feel is acceptable then fuck off.I've no idea whether the owners will acheive what we or they want to in the future, but what thev've done so far they have a little credit in the bank surely?A section of our support is truly fucking laughable.

One thing that really annoys me is when fans  talk about net spend and translate that into  zero spend. FFS net spend argument is bollocks. Just because we got £100M in and spent about the same it does not mean we didn't spend any money. Just ask Norwich and Leverkusen and Southampton how much money they have had from us yes real money that owners backed us with.

Not quite sure how anyone can measure how far back or forward we are going at this point of the season really.

Exactly. We couldnít spend £100m on a player because no one that good would come to us. Seems clear to me the strategy was get into Europe with this squad and then spend big again when we can offer European football to top quality players.
