Exit Could Cost £20 million?

As well as suffering the indignity of having to compete in the Europa League, following our demise in the Champions League, the ramifications, financially, are also major.

The cash bonanza available to us, if we`d have gone all the way, was a massive £20 million, with the money being attained as follows (as we progressed to the final)

Reaching the last 16 = £2.5 million

Reaching the last 8 = £2.8 million

Reaching the last 4 = £3.6 million

Runners-up = £4.8 million

Winners = £7.75 million

Now, I wonder how much revenue the Europa League might generate!

Not a lot I`d imagine!

No it hasn't. How many January transfers has Fergie made during his entire tenure at our club? 7, that's it. His said we won't be making signings in January before we were out of the Champions League and he's simply maintaining that stance. It even says in the article the last time we splashed out in Jan was back in 2006. Did you even read it?

Would you not agree that you actually NEED to make transfers this time around though? That hasn't been the case in previous Januarys, but you did manage to pull Evra and Vidic out of the bag in 2011, two players who've done rather well for you. So why in the face of losing your best defender, not having a midfielder worthy of the name and out-of-form/favour strikers would taggart decide he wasn't going to buy anyone if he had the funds available? Reality is an interesting place Famous, you should try it some time.

I agree completely fcb, I've said before we need to prioritise the midfield and another defender wouldn't go a miss. Not overly concerned about the forwards though. Would Fergie buy someone though if money was available? No. We've seen it numerous times before and I called for it to happen again unfortunately at our fans dismay. In Fergies eyes he believes all areas of the pitch are up to the challenge and therefore won't spend on anyone. Personally I would love for us to go after Van Der Wiel or Cahill as well as Douglas Costa or possibly even Affelay, seeing as he's not even getting a chance at Barca. None of these would cost much (perhaps par Douglas Costa solely because of the wealth of Shakhtar and the deal he is on) in transfer fee or wages and will help in the problem areas.
