Well done Kes-retro doesn't post for ages but as soon as he does, there you are supporting the fella who supports your "other" team,something that you have derided so much in the past in others.

retro_royal Heysel getting completely forgotten about as per usual by that horrible lot.

Murderers always has and always will relate to Heysel.


retro has risen from the dead himself-what a joy to have him back with his perception and wit.


Is fact perception?

Thought Chelsea's had been offset more than that by the spectacular Luiz deal they did.

Contrary to what some British tabloids reported, the French press said they had seen details of the transfer and reported it at €49.5M (£39.5 in June 2014) if every clause was met which included a champions league win.

At least the top 3 in this graph have delivered the Premier League title in those 5 years.

Wasn't there someone on here last year absolutely adamant that Spurs had spent more than Chelsea?

I dunno - but that depends on a specific transfer window and whether you mean net or gross.....

The discussion at the time was regarding net spend since 2001 but with particular focus on the last 5 years. Even the window where they spent £90m, they made in excess of £110m in sales. You might not remember it.

A man goes into a pub and spends £46.00 on a round of drinks. Another man spends £12.60 on a round. Who's spent the most?

The man spending £46 won £60 on the fruit machine so was actually up £14 for the night.

I'm talking over the course of the Premier League not the 5 year narrative that suits the agenda of the person who did that graph.

5 years is an arbitrary window yes, but at least it's pretty relevant to the building of the current squads for each team.

You could perhaps stretch it to 10 years to cater for some of the more long term purchases but I've no idea how that would impact the results.

I t would depend on how much the man paid for the whisky before selling it on.

5 Years is just after Ronaldo leaving where the net spend was -64,500,000 for that season

2/3 of the 300+ million have been spent my Moyes/LVG turning them into a shower of shite

Just how much of that £300m+ was spent on Moyes watch. From what I understood it was less than £50m of which £30m+ was Fellaini
