So if team A has 22 players averaging £1.9k a week and team B has 25 players averaging £1.8k a week. Team B would have the higher budget but their average wage is lower.
Let it go
Let what go? All I did was point out that averages isn't indicative of total budget.
Last I checked bud, this is a discussion forum and money rules in football. It is not out of the question for fans to discuss how much we are paying players.
I'm not of the opinion that top 3 budget guarantees top 3. I do believe that a top 3 budget should make us competitive for a top 3 spot (hence my belief that DF should have stayed, 4th is not a bad return on a top 3 budget all things considered). No matter how you dress it up, we are nowhere near competing this season and need one hell of a run to compete for a repeat finish of last season. He has made a mountain out of a molehill.
