We were told that money would not be a problem in the transfer market and the covid clause would be removed. Their is now only a short time before the transfer window ends and our signings are 3, 2 on loan and a free one.

What has happen to the promised money to bolster the squad, or has penny pincher Fenty ( I'm off with my cash) refused to sign the cheque again. We do not know who is or was or in what order Hurst's list of transfer targets are or have been.  

Given our current position you can understand some of his targets not wanting relegation on their cv's, but money, or the right amount,  is always known to change a players mind. Also will Day/Fenty only agree to a short term deals. We don't know, so where the promised cash?

I'm no fan of the current board, but wouldn't there be some cost in wages as opposed to the other youngsters we had on loan?

See where you are coming from arry. Phil did say it won't be a problem, so assuming he knows the figures he didn't say limited amount.

I think it's a fair question to ask. Phil Day promised money to strengthen the squad. I think 3 free signings is pathetic at this stage of the transfer window, wages have been saved on loan player sent so he has not splashed any cash.

2nd from bottom and the transfer window closing on Monday should warrant serious discussion.

What he said was clearly open to interpretation. My assumption at the time was that we had money to pay semi decent wages for a few players, I think maybe you/others thought we were suddenly going to start offering clubs transfer fees for players.The latter never struck me as being a realistic scenario.

I'm sure that the money is there for the right signing.  Its up to PH who the right signings are!

The money being available and freedom of choice are two different things. Just because we can offer a decent contract doesn't mean we are going to sign a 20 goal a season striker and a creative midfielder plus a top class goalkeeper on 4 year deals anytime soon.

Right now a relegation battle isn't a great prospect, nor is relegation in itself so it's likely we'll have to settle for short term deals until some job/wage security comes into the equation. This isn't even a question to be answered, nor a particularly well thought out one. This isn't like a manager game where if you have enough virtual coins to throw you can pretty much sign anybody and they instantly join the club. Actual negotiations involve agents, players the player's family and so on. Everything needs to be sorted out before anything is signed. Stuff can literally change the day they are supposed to sign as they are driving here and it falls through.

Yep, that's what we were told.

Only the highly gullible, or those completely unfamiliar with the Fenty regime, could possibly believe it. Money is always a problem (look at the world).
Day's statement joins a substantial list of utterances made by the club that are far too crass to be taken seriously. So I'd suggest you don't...
