It certainly is, when you consider the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham have to pay the mortgage on their new builds.

Haven’t arsenal paid off their stadium? Think they did in record time which was also why they have fallen a bit behind as they couldn’t invest as heavily in the squad.

Sorry to mention transfers, but apparently a few championships clubs are interested in Curtis Jones from Liverpool. 
 

I know it’s unlikely to happen but that would be a fantastic signing. 
 

exactly the midfield creativity we have been missing.

Does anyone know when Premier League clubs need to submit their 25 man squad? Maybe this will be key to our next lot of business.

I can see us bringing in 3 more players, all on load

Striker, Centre Half & ‘Creative Midfielder’

i see Fulham are allowing Kevin MacDonald to leave on a free, sure we’ve been linked before and he sounds like a Warnock type, tons of experience.

They haven't paid it off yet, they have paid about half off though. If I recall correctly Kroenke restructured the clubs stadium debt, so that they now owe him directly, but at much lower interest rates. 

It's similar to what Gibson did with our debts.

maybe one more perm, and then hope we can pick up a few in the loan market - probably

When you "pick players up" in the transfer market,they still have a wage to be paid,whether free or not. The only transfers I can see happening is in the loan market where the parent club want to give game time to players to improve their fitness...IE Patrick Roberts from Man City,but I'll bet the parent club paid most if not all his wages...Benefits both clubs,really...I suspect that is what the club will be looking at

i thought the fact you have to pay players was a bit obvious.

a lot of clubs haven't managed to move on players, and as pointed out by manby others, there are still a lot of free agents out there.

we have 2 basic criteria - 1) the player improves the squad,  2) it is within our financial capability

Unlikely it is putting it mildly. More chance of me playing in championship than there is of Curtis Jones this season. I would not pay attention to the rumour my friend.

Spurs signed a deal with the NFL which covered a very significant chunk of the cost to build the stadium. They aren't going to have the same problems Arsenal had.

But Alan Nixon has tweeted about it and he’s never wrong

To be fair all he said was that a few championship sides had asked about him and been knocked back. That's hardly unlikely.

Alan Nixon has tweeted about @TLF10 playing in the championship? It must be true then. Who are you signing for @TLF10? 😂😂😂

Ladies and gents, we are not going broke this season. I'm sure our finances are somewhat tight, but there's no way we're spending £3m+ on players in the midst of the pandemic if we're emptying the penny jar. That would be worse money management then the early-mid 80s & earlier, even given our current business flaws there's just no way that we're mirroring anything that short-sighted.

A few other clubs, on the other hand, have plenty to worry about

Derby will be okay, they'll just sell their stadium for a billion pounds
