I'm not sure anyone has really changed their opinion of his creativity, just whether or not that truly matters when you judge him. I still rate him, not anywhere near the price we bought him for naturally but I still rate him. I just mean that when you're struggling to get a grip on a game and create chances, neither him nor Gestede are going to help more than Saville or Spence, the players we took off. He's a limited striker.
I think our yearly accounts are out this week or next. Covers period up to June 2019. It should include sales of Bamford Adama Gibson and also the removal of Downings salary. Dont think it includes sale of Braithwite and Flint though.
What it will show is the full work of Pulis who regularly referred to financial balancing he was doing during last season.
Fair point. I know Pulis wasnt around when the sale went through. Though I do think he had a lot to do with MB's attitude towards the club prior to the sale.
But yes. In hindsight. I agree that we have been fairly astute when selling. Much more than we have when buying.
