Owners give extra £10m to Swans transfer funds 19:32 - Jan 27 with 3801 viewsCroftyjack

LOL...what was the point really as the original £20m budget is highly likely to be sitting in the bank come Feb 1st.
To get what is needed in 4 days is now highly unlikely aint it.

Can see the headlines..January is a hard month to get the right players and we tried really hard.
So after 7 yrs we already know this..why it needs to be done correctly in summer and if not early in Jan.
My guess is one will come in and that's it..not really gonna help much unless is Bale or similar!

Nobody decent is going to want to come to a club bottom of the league, unless it's on terms that'll be ruinous to us if we go down.

I know that some are even starting to question......Is the initial £20 million promised even there to be spent in the first place, let alone the extra £10 million. Hope it ain't been siphoned off already by means of devious boardroom accountancy-strategy e.g. Oyston-type consultancy fees etc?........Surely not?

No way would they dare! That's why the Trust wanted to build bridges so that they had inside knowledge of boardroom activities and the finances of the club. Nobody fvcks with the trust or Stuart Mac, they'll ave yer for fvckin breakfast!

Yes, hopefully we'll get some similar type (good Championship) players in. Though half on here slate Carroll and Narsingh whenever they play.

A couple of years ago we tried for one player, but it fell through because he wanted he free transfer if we were relegated. You're not going to get a good Premier player in, as why would they risk a drop in wages if we go down? Again, I recall us going for Charlie Austin, but we wanted £100,000 a week, and wouldn't sign for us, went to Southampton as they were then much higher in the league.

The prospect of the 'proposed' £20 million subtly going amiss/being cleverly diverted or never even existing in the first place never crossed my mind before......Until (two weeks back) the cynicism, doubt, and questions raised from a discussion/opinions of a long-term vice-presidents club member happened to rub off onto myself. After all, add to that the fact Jenkins, the Yanks and Co have a forte for double-cross e.g. the dodgy take-over deal itself and the deliberate moving of goalposts regarding the later(ish) share purchase deal.

I'm now seriously starting to question the validity of this (£20 million Pounds) moneys existence?

So the under spend of the outgoing transfers fees in the summer was quoted by the owners as spending this in January to strengthen our squad and preserve our prem status.

We are truly being shat on by the board and the rogue and from a big height.

exactly..its rubbish that players wont come to this league, okay you wont get a seasoned PL player granted but lots of potential out there who would bite the hand.
They perform well they are in the best shop window in the world..contracts mean nothing you all know that...they be gone easy enough if relegated.

If it don't happen it aint that its the desire to bring them in the first place.

that wasn't in the January window. Whoever was in charge of recruitment last summer deserves a good sledge. Totally shocking. "playing hardball" on Gylfi gaining nothing, letting the window slowly edge close as all the quality that was available got signed by competitors.

The names linked suggest we're aiming too high. But are we deliberately aiming too high precisely because there's no intention to sign anyone? That is the question.

We shouldn't be in the PL and don't belong there any more. The structure of the club is a disgrace in terms of being competitive in these transfer windows.

As we all know it has been like it for a number of years now. If you are in the PL, you need to have a scouting network, readily available cash and fluid to get signings over the line and importantly early, if new players are going to have a chance of making any kind of impact.

Instead, our deficiencies which have been glaringly obvious aren't going to be rectified. We will end up with Ayew, not a bad signing but another example of the extent of our abilities in the transfer market revolving around signing former players.

To stay up in the PL, size of the club doesn't really matter. What does matter is that the owners, dof, manager, scouting network are working together for the greater good of the club. On that note we are a disgrace, off field politics, Jenkins being a poisonous influence at the club, owners who appear to be clueless, as I say we don't deserve to play at this level any more.

I get that, given our financial history, there may be an underlying 'rule' that signings are made that don't put the financial security of the club in jeopardy, however, if that is the case then you must work twice as hard off the field to identify and sign players who's fee/wages etc match our criteria.

We don't even do that though. We operate through agents, make easy signings that don't represent hard work and due diligence being shown, resulting in a series of poor buys, e.g. Baston, Clucas, Sanchez, Mesa, the Italian player, season before last.

The sooner the yanks and Jenkins fu ck off and we become a 'club' again the better, in my opinion, regardless of what league we are in.

That is all very true.

What puzzles me is why would you invest in a football club, run it into the ground to the point it gets relegated, therefore losing all the lucrative deals associated with the Premier League and devaluing the club?

If I were one of those investors I'd be really pee'd off with seeing my money going down the Swanny (literally!)
