Still taking hits on players
Even though we have replaced players with quality it is still coming at a cost to us.
Jarvis cost us a reported £11.75 Million and a few years later he’s leaving for £2.5 Million. That’s close to a £10 Million loss!
Then I hear Jelavic is finally off. You’d think we’d try and get at least half of the £2 Million we paid but no after just half a season we’ve that as a hit and let him go for free!
£12 Million loss on just two players!? Yes we are going in the right direction finally but the next big loss coming will be Carroll. At £15 Million we’d be lucky to flog him for a couple of Mil imo.
Bilic is showing Hippo how the market can be effectively used in attracting young talent and playing them! Allardyce would still say his way is the only way mind you….
