Thing is will Dean be trusted with it as part of the decision making?

No way in a million years we'd spend that this summer.

The Brentford Chairman is currently having a swimming pool installed, soon to be filled with £50 notes.

if we spend that amount - the pressure on Dean will be enormous (the owners and supporters will expect us to be in the top 4, and in truth there can be no excuses).

If you look at the current team even the players who are currently considered to be irreplaceable will be thinking I hope that they are not looking at my position in the team to improve!

It looks as though it is going to be an interesting Summer (Dean may need to win 1 of the 2 last games of the season, to ensure that the owners think he is the manager to trust with this amount of money with to spend)

The owners will not be basing a decision like that on winning a game against Chelsea or Spurs.

£260m to spend this summer according to reports.  Should be enough for Kane and Son.

£260m, it's officially a 'war chest'!

If that figure is even remotely accurate then the comments from Smith about it being an exciting summer make a lot of sense.

Additionally it would mean bad news for players like Davis and Nakamba.

I think it's vaguely feasible.  FFP will be loosened off a bit, so it potentially gives us one of the few opportunities to spend money like Man City / Chelsea did immediately before FFP came in to force.   There'll be a number of clubs, particularly in Europe, who are feeling the pinch financially so players might be available that might not have otherwise been, or they'll be cheaper than they'd otherwise been (e.g. Sanson).

To me, it's not completely beyond the realms of possibility that we might spend £200m+ in the summer, and upgrade 7 or 8 players in the squad to ones that previously would've been in the £50m-£60m range ordinarily but now are in the £20m-£30m range.  You'd be looking at wholesale changes to the first team with that -- probably moving to a place where the squad would be something like Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett, McGinn, Luiz, Grealish, Traore, Watkins, AEG, Hause, Wesley, Sanson, Steer, Ramsey -- then new players for the remaining spots


I mean, I'm taking the figure with a massive pinch of salt myself, but I suppose what I'm saying is that it's feasible, and it'd likely push us in to a position where we could quite comfortably rotate players across the squad and realistically challenge on multiple fronts.

It would be a bonkers budget for a team not yet in Europe.

No matter what budget we have, it will still be a challenge convincing CL standard players to join a bottom half EPL team. More than likely it will be young players with potential again or players who have lost their way. I do think we shouldn't be shy about getting in an experienced head or two. The binary line that over 30s are to avoided is a bit self defeating. An experienced backup striker and LCM would help us a lot. Like the impact Cavani has had at United.
